Do I need a firewall?
« on: April 25, 2015, 09:01:14 PM »
Hello everyone :) Have and Acer and win 8.1. I also have an ASUS WiFi router. I read a post on another thread by Bear and it seems a firewall might not be necessary with a router. I also read ZoneAlarm can be difficult to remove, they also seem to be constantly trying to pressure users to upgrade to their free Antivirus + Firewall. Free Online Armor firewall doesn't seem to be offered anymore since they've grouped it with antivirus. So the only option seems to be ZoneAlarm. Do I need it or is there another good firewall I can use? Thanks for any help and advice :)

I forgot there is also Comodo firewall but a review on PCMag said that it didn't catch everything in their tests.
