The Comodo Firewall is famous for its annoyance by popping up messages that keep asking for permissions to attempt all its action. If you are a novice Comodo Firewall user or some user who decided not to use Comodo Firewall due this drawback, then you can refer to these three tips on how you can reduce the pop up from Comodo Firewall. These three tips basically will attempt to make some changes in the Comodo Firewall configuration.
Comodo Firewall – Top 3 Tips
Tips #1 – Add you application into the Trusted Files.
The best way to reduce the pop up from Comodo Firewall is to manually add your applications into the Trusted Files section. You can access the section by opening your Comodo settings and go to the Defense+ tab. From there, you will see the Trusted File section. You can add your applications into this setting to ensure those applications will not prompt you anymore in the future. However, the drawbacks of this method is you need to use up some time to configure all your applications and secondly, it does not work well with installer type of application. However, any standard executable application will do just fine by setting up this section.
Tips #2 – Make Comodo Firewall remember your answers.
Whenever you run certain applications that are not in the Trusted File list, the Comodo Firewall will pop up some message to ask you whether you want to run the application or not. Even if you clicked ‘Yes’, it will ask you again in the future about the same application unless you force it to remember. To make the Comodo Firewall remember your answer, just check on the option ‘Remember my answer’ when it prompts for your permission to run an application that is not trusted.
Tips #3 – Reduce the security level.
In my humble opinion, this tips is the least recommended way to reduce the Comodo Firewall annoyance. Reducing the security level means as well reducing the protection level of the firewall and could lead your computer to malware threats. However at times, there is a need to totally disable all sort of security due to major upgrades or some software installation. If there is a need to reduce the security level of Comodo Firewall, you can access the Defense+ settings by opening the Comodo Firewall configuration on the Defense+ tab. In order to have the least troublesome configuration, you can temporarily disable your Comodo Firewall protection.
If you had already installed and updated all the necessary items, then it is highly recommended to enable back the protection. To enable back the protection, you can open the Comodo Firewall setting. You will see the enable button on your left hand side and click on the Enable button to restore back your protection.
