    The Windows Firewall intelligently regulates your network connections: no unauthorized person can take control of your PC, nor can your apps secretly leak information. But configuring rules can be hard, which is why we created a Firewall manager, which automatically optimizes your settings with one click.



    • Enhanced control – helps you easily manage your advanced capabilities
    • Firewall optimizer – fixes firewall settings with one click
    • Intuitive control panel – lets you easily enable/disable features
    • App overview – shows which programs have rules, and which need some
    • Rules management – auto-creates rules for all your apps
    • Activity report – shows you what your firewall is blocking


    Requirements

    • Windows 7 or later
    • .NetFramework 4.2.5 or later

    There is no such version .NET Framework 4.2.5. The actual required version is 4.5.2.
    Too bad it can't be downloaded without registering an account on Avira website.

    I have an Avira beta account and received an invitation from Avira. However the link takes me to the homepage and says The page you are attempting to access is unavailable. Is the project not available to me or is there a problem with the rollout ? I am confused now.

    I can't see firewall in the available opportunities and as I said earlier the direct link takes me back to the beta center home telling "The page you are attempting to access is unavailable". Either the project is not available for me for some reason or there is sth wrong how they are rolling it.

    It's freaking ridiculous. This is really a bad move by Avira.

    They just want to avoid common users from using it to avoid calls to support center about product, which will have many bugs for sure. Just look at Windows Insiders, most of them think, that it is Windows 10 for free and they keep spamming forums asking how to fix known bugs. I generally ignore them. :isay:

    Yes, but it stays annoying. But I may have misunderstood, so I'm guessing that if it's released you don't need an account. The only reason why I was interested is because it seems to be a tool similar to WFC.

    Right now is only available as part of AVira IS, I think it won't be available as a standalone product :(
