Remove a firewall rule

You can remove some of the firewall rules if necessary. However, you cannot modify some of the default Traffic rules that appear in the list. You can view the settings of these rules by using the View option.

Do not remove a firewall rule unless you are an advanced user. Removing a firewall rule can affect firewall functionality and reduce the security of your computer.

  2. In the Settings window, under Detailed Settings, click Firewall.
