Freedom Internet Security and Privacy by Zero knowledge has the potential to be a fine software firewall program. If you are just a beginner looking for a basic firewall, Freedom Internet Security can keep your computer stealth (hidden online) and monitor incoming and outgoing data—the basic roles of a firewall.

Freedom Firewall is a fair software firewall program. It automatically keeps your computer stealth (hidden) while you're accessing the Internet, but the program has some reliability hiccups. Several times we ran into compatibility problems and had to restart our router just to use the software.
