You should not turn off either the Windows firewall or the SecureAnywhere firewall. If they are disabled, your system is open to many types of threats whenever you connect to the Internet or to a network. These firewalls can block malware, hacking attempts, and other online threats before they can cause damage to your system or compromise your security.
The SecureAnywhere firewall is preconfigured to filter traffic on your computer. It works in the background without disrupting your normal activities. If the firewall detects any unrecognized traffic, it opens an alert where you can block the traffic or allow it to proceed.
Webroot SecureAnywhere delivers complete protection against viruses, spyware, and other online threats without slowing down PC performance or disrupting your normal activities. With its fast scans and threat removal, you can rest assured that malware is eliminated quickly and easily.
SecureAnywhere gives you the freedom to surf, share, shop, and bank online — all with the confidence that your PC and your identity will be kept safe.
