Add Applications to Firewall Blocklist via Drag and Drop

Windows Firewall is a special security feature of windows operating system which allow users to create packet filtering and protect system from malicious external resurces. Main function of windows firewall is restrict applications from sending or receiving unauthorize requests.

But this feature is usually ignored by users as it is hard to properly configure. Most of the users do not know what this feature do and how to use it. In windows 7, you can block a program in Firewall by following these steps:

1. Click the Windows orb and open the Control Panel 
2. Select System and Security
3. In the Windows Firewall section, select Allow a program through Windows Firewall
4. If the program you wish to block or unblock is not listed, you can click the Allow another program… button to add it.

I do not think that these steps are userfriendly.

But There is a tool called, Firewall App Blocker which allows users to add and remove application to Windows firewall block list just by drag and drop. This process is not only user-friendly, it also takes less time to manage block programs. When you want to block a program, drag this to the main interface of the tool. To unblock the program, select and delete.




The Advanced button brings up the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security window that allows you to apply Firewall policies and helps you configure Inbound Rules and Outbound Rules.


One more think to note that this tool does not provide any extra layer of security. It only allow users to access windows Firewall options easily.
