    We @ Tweakbytes.com are very pleased to announce our
    BiniSoft Windows Firewall Control Valentines 2018 Giveaway!

    We would like to thank Mr. Alexandru Dicu of BiniSoft
    for his kind generosity for sponsoring us in this giveaway.


    Overview

    BiniSoft's Windows Firewall Control is a powerful software which extends the functionality of Windows Firewall and provides new extra features which makes Windows Firewall even better. It runs in the system tray and allows the user to control the native firewall easily without having to waste time by navigating to the specific part of the firewall. This is the best tool to manage the native firewall from Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, Server 2008, Server 2012. Windows Firewall Control offers four filtering modes which can be switched with just a mouse click:

    High Filtering
    All outbound and inbound connections are blocked. This profile blocks all attempts to connect to and from your computer.

    Medium Filtering
    Outbound connections that do not match a rule are blocked. Only the programs that you allow can initiate outbound connections.

    Low Filtering
    Outbound connections that do not match a rule are allowed. The user can block the programs he doesn't want to allow initiating outbound connections.

    No Filtering
    Windows Firewall is turned off. Avoid using this setting unless you have another firewall running on your computer.

    Windows Firewall Control doesn't do any packet filtering and does not block or allow any connection. This is done by Windows Firewall itself based on the existing firewall rules.

    Thank you for arranging the promotion and the opportunity to participate in it
    "WHY do you want to use BiniSoft Windows Firewall Control alongside the built-in Windows Firewall?"

    because It extends the functionality of the Windows firewall and provides quick access to the most frequently used options. It works in the system tray. The application is light to cpu / hdd (probably the most important). It allows the user to control the system's firewall easily and without having to search for the most important information in hard-to-reach places. With a few mouse movements, we can quickly change the level of safetty of our firewall.

    Thank you so much TWEAKBYTES for this competition, Count with me.
    Binisoft Windows Firewall Control It makes feel us so comfortable with its third party software to harden our limited windows firewall interface, to avoid the comunication between our apps inside pc & the unknown foreigners servers in the internet, the program launches alert notifications when some Application attempts to escape of our connections calling its house using directly outgoing connections throuht adsl or router. if you do not have Binisoft WFC then you will have a tedious problem forever, because you must handle the rules of the firewall and its internal custom blocking policies, with hidden system menus that are not friendly and practical for the keyboard, mouse and touchpad, and do not exist the notifications. Easy operability between the desktop user and notifications in traybar. With WFC in your mouse rapidly you will have total control over these aplications that will try steal data, to create new rules, and allowing the sending of data only for trusted applications.

    I want it because I need it as a monitor to my network status with an efficient alert program without consuming too many resources, I like to improve my security to the fullest, and me firmly believed in binisoft project.

    Now a days firewall is more essential than the antivirus program because this only can keep track of all incoming and outgoing connections. Now when ever we hear the word firewall the first thing comes into our mind is windows firewall which is natural because most of us uses windows platform but the windows firewall is pretty basic and can not serve all of its purposes its need to be tweaked. Here comes the solution to the question asked the “Windows Firewal Control” by Binsoft which is an excellent program which not only helps to increase the functionality of the Windows firewall but also provides immediate access to the most frequent options of Windows Firewall. It runs on system tray and use minimum resources without compromising its functions. Now any application we install it bypass windows firewall and create its own rule but with the help of this it will automatically prevent it from creating the rule and will ask for permission which is a great thing also it will help to remove those rules created by applications which remains even after uninstalling them.

    It have different filtering modes which can control all incoming and outgoing connections moreover we can choose any of the four modes of filtering of our choice. Another Important feature which is though an registered one but I do belive that by this feature we can more closely monitor our connection and can also stop many unwanted connection from sending information to the source one such example is telemetry data and the feature I am talking about is notification system it might be a bit annoying for a user but by this anyone can see which appliction or any associated program wants to connect to the internet and what they want to send or receive, by this I or we can block many unwanted connection from sending data over the internet without our permission.

    At last I want to say that windows firewall is like an lion growing up in domestic area but it have all its instinct within it which needs to be trained or brushed up with the combination of Windows Firewall Control it can deliver its original power and I am sure it will show its capability and will surely prove it is an wild lion aggressive and attacking in nature but it just needs this little help.

    Thank You a lot for arranging this awesome giveaway. Salute to your work.
