"I am extremely satisfied with this firewall."

August 14, 2014  |  By MrBoiGuy

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.30.2

Pros

- Free
- Powerful protection
- Silent security that doesn't bombard you with alerts
- No obnoxious "UPGRADE NOW" ads all over the interface
- Easy to use; a novice could easily understand this!
- No system slowdown, it is extremely lightweight
- Features intrusion protection (even though most firewalls do these days, I still count it as a plus)

Cons

Honestly, I could not find any.

Summary

Privatefirewall is good for a novice or an expert. It's extremely silent and from what I hear, plays nice with most antivirus solutions.

"Beware!!! Intense Malware on this Install"

January 13, 2014  |  By SteveW__

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.30.2

Pros

I didn't have time to evaluate the firewall component to this install. I was to darn busy trying to remove the malware this download installed. I even opted out of all the additional "free" installs offered before the install program began.

Cons

Loaded up with hard to remove malware. Wow! It was a mistake downloading this train wreck. It was so bad, that I had to walk away from my computer and work on the malware again on another day.

"Straightforward, effective free firewall!"

January 03, 2014  |  By Batchoy2

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.30.2

Pros

Simple to use
Easy to navigate
Adapts easily with your system

Cons

Just the old GUI but no more so far.

Summary

From Comodo Free Firewall, I now use the Privatefirewall.

I have made an extensive research from other independent reviews and sites and hence, Privatefirewall is a good contender!

Updated on Jan 17, 2014

I now use Privatefirewall 7.0 on all of my computers. I uninstall the latest Comodo Free Firewall.

"Blocks legitimate programs"

December 16, 2013  |  By sharcs

 |  Version: Privatefirewall 7.0.30.2

Pros

- Very light weight and easy to use
- Does it's job of creating a barrier between your computer and the internet

Cons

- Block a lot of legitimate programs and sometimes doesn't even admit to it. It took me several resets to discover that it crashes my Steam games on launch and I had to turn it of when updating windows because it was automatically blocking random files from the update.

Summary

I wouldn't use it again simply because, if something goes wrong, I'll never be able to be sure if there's something wrong with my computer or if a program has it's hands tied behind it's back by PrivateFirewall.
