Ashampoo Firewall is a free software that gives users real time protection against unwanted browser-based threats, unsolicited internet connections, and other malicious network attacks.

The software features automatic threat notifications and scans every time the user connects to the web. The lightweight program doesn't hamper down the system, making it possible to complete automatic and manual scans during normal operation.

Users appreciate the user-friendly, single page interface that allows them to customize their firewall. The firewall can be disabled for certain sites, making it easy to pre-program threat notifications based on user activity.

Since the program is free, it is somewhat more simplistic than comparable paid programs. It should only be used on single home computers that want slightly more robust protection against browser threats.

Pros

  • Completely free to download and use
  • Performs both automatic and real time threat scans

Cons

  • Somewhat simplistic compared to other programs
