Firewall App Blocker : Add Applications To Firewall Block List via Drag Drop Share
PDF Print E-mail

Windows Firewall is a vital system security and packet filtering component that enables users to create inbound and outbound data traffic rules to protect their PCs and network from malicious external sources. The function of Windows Firewall is to restrict third-party applications from sending and receiving data to unauthorized users/apps. However, the Windows Firewall is not utilized up to its full potential by most users because it seems a bit difficult to configure. Previously, we brought you a guide on How to Create Exceptions in Windows 7/ Vista Firewall. Today, we have an application for Windows called Firewall App Blocker, which allows you to add applications to the Windows Firewall block list via drag and drop. Moreover, the application lets you set Windows Firewall policies by providing you with easy access to Windows Firewall with Advanced Security dialog box.

The application does not provide you with any extra options other than those provided by Windows. Firewall App Blocker only enables you to easily access Windows Firewall options. The default way to block or unlock individual applications using Windows Firewall requires you to first open the Windows Firewall and choose the programs to allow or block in Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall.

Allowed Programs

With Firewall App Blocker, you can easily add programs to the Windows Firewall block list by just dragging them over its main interface. When you want to unblock the program again, just select them from the list and click Delete.
