Security/privacy conscious friends, how do you handle apps (especially banking apps) that tie essential functionality to services like online-metrix.net?

From bleepingcomputer.com/news/secu, it seems online-metrix.net loads an invasive script that attempts to port-scan/fingerprint the environment in which it's running (my banking app requested local network access).

The domain online-metrix.net is blocked by common DNS blocklists, but with the block in place the (banking) apps fail to function.

I could whitelist the domain of course, but allowing it just feels... icky?
