These remote lookups can add value to Unfurl, but they also come with risk (as Unfurl is sending out potentially-sensitive hashes to 3rd parties). To give the user control over this, Unfurl has a new remote_lookups setting. Users can change it (from the default, false) in the unfurl.ini file. There's also a command line option to allow lookups (-l or  --lookups) from unfurl_cli.py. The CLI tool will fall back to the value specified in unfurl.ini if no command line option is set. Users need to set this option to enable any remote lookups (it's disabled by default). Shortlink resolution and MAC address vendor lookups are now also controlled by this option, as they are remote lookups as well.
