Firewall protection works by either blocking or permitting network traffic — also referred to as network packets and data packets — based on a set of predefined security rules. Its primary purpose is to act as a barrier between your computer and potential threats. By enabling firewall protection, you establish an additional line of defense for […]

Turn on automatic updates in the security settings. Install and keep security software (think of antivirus, antimalware & firewalls) current […]
