Superb free firewall to protect your computer
- Efficient, reliable firewall
- Easy to configure
- Features a Game mode
- Not many tweaking options
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.
