Free Firewall 2.2.0
Give the Windows Firewall a boost using this powerful interface

Windows ships with a powerful firewall which will help protect your system from outside intrusion. People trying to exploit your system for loopholes to gain access, often silently.

Most people keep their system firewall switched on by default, then leave it running, often alongside the firewall within the security suite. You don't need both running, but you could make better use of your system firewall if you have a tool to configure the options.

Free Firewall is a wrapper for the system firewall which offers far more configurability and the option to monitor what's going on behind the scenes with your network. On a basic level, it will protect against outside threats, but you can also configure what has access to your system from the outside. You can quickly and easily give or prevent access to applications wanting to use your network and even see the processes that are running behind the scenes 'talking' to the outside.

Within Free Firewall, filter based on file concept, zones rules, address range, create rules based on domains and much more.

Version 2.2.0 is a minor update (see development changelog for more):

- Display a program icon in the notification area.
- New option: Firewall shrinks when closing in the notification area.
- New menu in the notification area.
- New Commands in Event Summary: Allow or Disallow All Events.
- Firewall user interface starts faster
- New command: Delete filter
- AntiVirus software no longer blocks firewall startup.


Powerful interface for managing your internal system firewall.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.111

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.111 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
