Hello,

In Firewall menu, "Network connection"menu is missed.
This feature is very useful but latest update after, it is gone.
is this a bug or intentionally removed?

From my understanding it was 'intentionally' removed.

Very bad thing...
I bought this AV looking for this feature and Real time AV, ONLY,
Today many programs keep sending data without consent, rising the UDP bandwidth for no reason...
I always use that to exterminate connections i dont wnt in the time.... Now it's gone
That's BS man!

There's any way to rollback to a version of Avast that have this feature enabled?

The Network Connections feature in the Firewall will be back in the future.

In the meantime if it's important for you, you can retrieve an older version which didn't have the re-worked Firewall (I believe v20.1) from a File Sharing website. It must be an offline version and you would need to disable internet connectivity while installing it. Then once installed, you would have to Set the Program Setting update from Automatic to Manual and then re-enable your internet.
