ZoneAlarm Free Firewall is one of the most popular firewall apps available today. It has changed a lot from previous versions, but its performance and ease of use remain the same.

It’s true that third-party firewalls don’t seem that necessary since Microsoft decided to include a built-in firewall in Windows XP, but ZoneAlarm is still a reliable, efficient security tool to protect your system from any unauthorized accesses.

ZoneAlarm features a simple, straightforward interface where you can select the level of security for your computer (none, medium or high) and set the type of program control you want to have. This allows you to control exactly which programs access your internet connection. There's even a Game mode that disables most alerts temporarily, so that you're not interrupted while playing on the PC.

The configuration options in ZoneAlarm Free Firewall seem to have been reduced – at least from what we can remember from older versions – but iregardless, it’s still an extra layer of security anyone can benefit from.

With ZoneAlarm Free Firewall you can protect your computer from hackers, unauthorized access and other online threats.

ZoneAlarm Free Firewall protects your Windows PC from online threats. Its works alongside your antivirus and security tools.

ZoneAlarm Free Firewall includes Full Stealth Mode, making your PC invisible to hackers, and Kill Controls, which instantly disable malicious attacks. It's easy to use and operates automatically, so you'll never be interrupted with unnecessary alerts. ZoneAlarm free firewall also comes with free Online Backup, Identity Protection, and Gamer Mode.

ZoneAlarm's award-winning free firewall is an industry leader in the field of personal firewall, and has been for more than a decade. It stops internet attacks at the front door and catches thieves on their way out. It proactively blocks both inbound and outbound attacks, so your PC will be fully protected.
