Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

On enabling the stealth mode, the Mac will be stopped from responding to probing requests. The Mac will still acknowledge the incoming requests for the authorized apps. The unexpected requests such as ICMP (ping) are disregarded.

When the stealth mode is enabled, the users will not be able to manually turn off Firewall from their Mac devices unless the device(s) is removed from the policy targets or the concerned policy is deleted.
