Windows Firewall helps protect your PC from hackers and malware. It is a powerful tool that allows you to customize protection and notifications for different network profiles such as Home, Work and Public. If you are connected to a public network such as a library or a café, you can block all incoming connections for security reasons. A firewall protects your system from unwanted problems, whether at home or at work.
If you frequently need to disable or enable the Windows firewall, you can create a shortcut on your desktop instead of going through the entire Control Panel. This is especially useful if you notice that the firewall is interfering with any of your running tasks.
