Detects and stops zero-day malware, prevents from “phoning home”, unwanted automatic updates and sending “telemetry”, increases your network security and privacy. Puts you in control of all network communications your PC has.
Provides detailed logging and notification of any application network activity. Allows using and creating applications permissions to control the network activity easily. Rich set of predefined, ready-to-use applications permissions applicable with a single click. Ability for creating virtual computers group (sub networks) with flexible permissions to control mutual connect ability inside Local Network. Manages external network hardware devices.
Almost any modern application is a network active one. Applications check for updates, verify licenses and registrations, submit problem reports and perform a lot of other network actions without any notice to you and without your permissions typically. Such network activity is expected and welcomed sometimes, but hardly always. Do you need an application installed recently starts informing its developers that the application is just installed? The application will just send a short message to its developers. There will be no strictly personal data in the information sent probably. The question is whether you need such communications at all. If you want to manage such network activity evidently and not to allow any bit of data sent to somewhere without your explicit permission or a notice, Windows 10 Firewall Control is for you precisely.
If you accidentally obtained a fresh malware installed, the program may be not detected by an antivirus. The antivirus database updates are fast and regular typically, but the update can not be immediate. Windows 10 Firewall Control is nearly the only way to detect and stop the malware activity. Windows 10 Firewall Control filtering rules are protected against an intrusion strictly. The rules consistency is monitored. Even an intrusion happens, Windows 10 Firewall Control will detect the intrusion, try to fix the broken rules automatically and notify you with the details anyway.
