"An overall excellent program."

June 24, 2012  |  By petershum

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.057

Pros

- Simple to use.
- Appears to be effective. (Nothing bad happened - so I presume it has been doing its job?)
- Free

Cons

- A bit naggy with regular pop-ups inviting you to get the paid version.

"Good and consistent service."

July 02, 2012  |  By adrianhj

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.057

Pros

Effective firewall providing sound protection against many unwanted covert incoming or outgoing datastreams.

Cons

May cause difficulties (which can be overcome with effort) in the establishment of network links.

Summary

I have used the ZoneAlarm free firewall for many years now.
It has provided a consistently high standard of protection to my PCs and has done so through many different generations of MS Windows operating systems.
Brief experiments with other firewalls have always brought me back to ZoneAlarm again.
It forms a part of the basic protections I implement on every new PC that I acquire.

"A SILENT GUARDIAN"

July 01, 2012  |  By mitvinder

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.057

Pros

free,user friendly,needs very less input,simple interface and controls,robust,silent,does not interfere with working

Cons

antivirus and antispyware are separate and have a pricetag. they should also be bundled with free firewall and distributed.

Summary

you install the zonealarm and then you forget about it. after some days you check the statistics and its overwhelmingly mindblowing , while you were making a toast, it has prevented literally thousands of sneak attacks against your computer, stopped hundreds of unauthorised attempts to cripple your machine...and its like a silent guardian... a watchful protector...what can i say...a dark knight...whose titanium armour nobody can pierce...and under protection of zonealarm your computer breathes easy and lives a peaceful life of perfect health...

"Great Product"

July 01, 2012  |  By arw1946

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.057

Pros

Works in the background protecting your computer from outside attacks. Easy to install, nice interface. This has to be the best freebie around.

Cons

None that I know.

Summary

I like this program because it works in the background and protects you all the time. Since its installation I have had no hits at all from outside. I have recommended this program to many friends and like me they are now fully protected. Thank you Zone Alarm

"Reliable and Powerful"

June 30, 2012  |  By MarkODwyer

 |  Version: ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 10.2.057

Pros

I have used and trusted ZoneAlarm Free for many years. No Firewall is 100 percent impenetrable 100 percent of the time, but ZoneAlarm Free has been the most effective in my own experience for many years of heavy daily use.

This software makes your system essentially invisible to numerous types of common and serious attacks.

Cons

No cons whatsoever.

Summary

HIGHLY recommended.
