How to modify the Internet connection permissions of the programs installed


Whenever a program without permissions tries to connect to the Internet, the firewall permission displays a pop-up message prompting you to allow or deny the connection.

However, you can change the permissions assigned to a program at any time.

To do this:

  1. Click Status in the main menu.

  2. In the Protection section, click Settings.

  3. Select the Firewall option.

  4. In the Rules section, click Settings to define the programs that can access the network/Internet.

  5. Find the program whose permissions you want change and modify them. You can do this using the drop-down menu that appears on the right of the program name.

Note: If you clear the checkbox Apply the permissions specified without asking, you will see a warning every time the program tries to access the network/Internet. If the checkbox remains selected, the firewall will apply the permissions it decides are necessary for each program. However, you can change these permissions whenever you like.
