No Permission Necessary(?) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    Recently I installed 3 applications and expected One Care's firewall  to seek outbound permission for each application.  In each case it did not.

     

    Is there not a danger in this behavior?  Should not a firewall block all outbound and inbound access to anything unfamiliar until permission is obtained?

     

    Thank you,

  • The One Care firewall automatically allows internet access to certain programs known to be safe. You can change this setting to "Always ask me whether to block or allow programs" but that setting can become annoying.
