McAfee: About firewall protection

Firewall offers a number of methods to manage your security and to tailor the way you want to respond to security events and alerts.

After you install Firewall for the first time, your level of protection is set to Outgoing Access security. For most, this setting meets all their security needs. However, Firewall provides other levels, ranging from highly restrictive to highly permissive.

Firewall also offers you the opportunity to receive recommendations on alerts and Internet access for programs. For more information, refer our help article Using McAfee: Firewalls.
