Hardened Mode
« on: June 22, 2019, 04:30:55 AM »
Is there an option to set Hardened mode to Moderate/Aggressive anymore? All I see is a tick box for Hardened Mode, is this option the behavioral hardened mode or the whitelist hardened mode?

By default it set to Moderate.You can tweak that by going into Menu>Settings>Trobleshooting>scroll down to "Open old settings".

if you check the checkbox for hardened mode, moderate mode will be set

if you open old settings and enable hardened mode aggressive, the checkbox mentioned above will be unchecked, but HM aggressive is still enabled
aggressive = whitelist = better
moderate = behavioral
