Windows 10: Windows firewall control

    Windows firewall control


    Is this advisable for an average skilled user or is the native firewall ok by itself?

    Myself and numerous others here are running with Windows Defender and Windows Firewall. Some, maybe all, use Malwarebytes along side. I do know it's working well for me.

    Much of your choice will revolve around your personal browsing habits, email reception, and just plain comfort level and confidence in what you're doing.

    Because it gave you more control I wonder if it was advisable however I will leave it as is and I too have MBAM

    The default Windows Firewall changes rules at will and does not block outbound by default.

    WFC (from Binisoft/Sphinx/Glasswire/etc) will let you control, which software you want to allow.

    The Default Windows Firewall does permit the end user to create rules and they do in fact work.

    Free VPNs usually allow only a limited amount of data for free, yet they call it "free".
