Free firewall 64-bit is a full-featured professional firewall that protects against online threats. Control every program on your computer by permit or deny access to the Internet. The app will notify you if applications want to access the Internet in the background, without your knowledge. In Paranoid mode, no software can access the Internet or network, without your prior consent. You have full control over the flow of data out of your system and into.
This personal firewall acts as an alternative to the built-in solution provided by the Windows operating system, providing a rather different way to control how and which applications installed on the host computer access the Internet.
Free Firewall can retrieve a complete list of all the applications that are installed and run on the computer, displaying both active and inactive ones, alongside the complete list of active services, all color-coded. Table entries can be filtered by name but other criteria are not available. For each, there are options to block it or remove it from the list (removing an app does not mean the process is terminated).
Free Firewall Features
Protection against external threats
Prevent the attacker to get access to your computer by exploiting security vulnerabilities. Protect yourself from remote access and control of your system and access to your personal information.
Protection against internal threats
Protect yourself, your privacy, and your personal data, by preventing the intruded malware from access to the Internet. Prevent viruses and worms spread on the network.
Regulate internet traffic
Individually regulate the access to the network and Internet per application. Allow access to the Internet only those programs, you unconditionally trust.
If a non-regulated program wants to access the Internet, you will receive immediately a notification with which you can permit or block Internet access.
Trust no one! In Paranoid mode, no software can access the Internet or network, without your prior consent. Only applications that you trust get Internet access.
Are you a credulous person? Do you have no fear of your privacy? In Credulous mode, all applications will have access to the Internet or network until you explicitly prohibit it.
The tool is not only a full-featured firewall but provides additional features to protect your privacy against attackers. Prevent that tracking services on web sites analyze your surfing habits. The firewall prevents calls to statistics and analysis services on Internet pages, which log the user behavior in the background.
The user interface is optimized for touch-sensitive devices. Thus you can operate the software on your desktop PC and laptop with the mouse as well as with the fingers on tablets and Ultrabooks.
Stop the download of the telemetry data of the respective software manufacturer and the Microsoft Server. The firewall blocks all background transmissions of telemetry data of the Windows operating system on the server on the Internet.
Anti-virus software only protects against known threats. New viruses are only taken after weeks into the anti-virus database. In the meantime, a virus can wreak havoc. With the software, you determine which program transfer data in the background and prevent them. So your personal information doesn’t fall into foreign hands.
Botnets consist of a lot of computers that are running malware in the background and can be remotely exploited for attacks. The program notifies you about data transfer in the background, which you can quickly block.
Unlike many other Firewalls, FreeFirewall can be operated with any other firewall in parallel. Also with Windows Firewall. So enjoy a higher level of protection and combine different functions to their added value and without extra cost.
The user interface has been translated into your language, so you can get the full PC protection. And that for free! Is your language still not under the translated, so help and translate with us!
What is interesting about Free Firewall is the modes in which it can run. The ‘Credulous’ mode allows unknown apps or apps that the user didn’t set rules for access to the Internet. In other words, the rules that you set are active, all other applications have restriction-free access to the online environment. The opposite is the ‘Paranoid’ mode, which blocks everything, including apps that are unknown or have no rules set.
It is also possible to run this software in the ‘blockade’ mode. In this case, all the applications and running services are not allowed to access the Internet or the network. Switching the blockade off will restore the previous rules configuration.
