Avast Firewall uses same settings on different windows user
« on: April 05, 2023, 10:17:22 PM »
Hey Guys...

I opened a new user on Windows 11. I use Avast Ultimate on my computer.

Today I realized. The Avast Firewall settings I made on the administrator user are also used on the other user.

The change I make on the other user also affects the Administrator.

I want the Firewall settings of the two users to be different.

I searched the internet but could not find an article on this topic.

Thank You so much...

sadly from what i know the firewall rules can only be set based on the network profile Trusted/Private or untrusted/Public,
not whether its from different users but for the whole system.

dont know if there are other firewall app that can do it

Avast Firewall Settings protects only the Operating SYSTEM on the whole;  not any individual 'User Account.
