Avast firewall free vs Windows firewall 10/11.
« on: February 02, 2023, 01:40:46 PM »
Hello in Avast Free does your firewall protect PCs from any external network attacks? 
Or does it also protect against connection-attempting and port-scan malware? 
Sorry but I'm curious to understand in detail what the features are and what the Avast firewall does in the free version more than that of Windows 10/11. 

Thank you!
Thank you and good day!

Do You Need a Personal Firewall?

Thank you for the link.
So, reading this article, is the Windows 10/11 firewall sufficient for normal/personal use of a PC? So what more features does Avast Free add? Or does the Avast Free Firewall have the same functionality as that of Windows 10/11 and only change the graphics for managing applications?
Thank you and good day!

In my opinion, yes. Many AV vendors also think so as they have dropped there own firewall and just add a network scanner that monitor the traffic in windows firewall. Avira/Trend Micro/F-secure/Webroot have done this
