Internet Security Filter Description

Internet Security Filter is an application made to continuously run on the computer, monitor Internet traffic and allow or block certain connections based on a set of filters that you can control in detail. This is a security measure against malware attacks. It shouldn’t be confused with an anti-malware software solution, though, which acts in a different manner.

The tool has been designed to allow or deny Internet access to other PC users than the administrator, as well as to any software applications and websites. For instance, it can block advertisements, popups, banners and other marketing content when surfing the Internet, ensuring more comfort.

Control Internet connections made by other PC users, programs or websites

Before proceeding any further, you should know that Internet Security Filter hasn’t been updated for such a long time that it doesn’t work on the latest Windows version. It gets installed quickly and creates an icon in the system tray when it starts, keeping an eye on your Internet traffic. Also, it starts automatically every time you turn on your computer but this option can be changed from the settings menu.

Set the security level, create whitelists and blacklists

However, you can access Internet Security Filter’s control panel to configure settings. For example, you can select the security level from allowing all connections to allowing everything except those in the blacklist or blocking everything aside from those in the whitelist. In a different section of the configuration window, you can view details about the activity of each application that has established an Internet connection, including the total amount of sent and received data, as well as the time of the first and last connection. Any selected program can be added to the blacklist or whitelist.

Similarly, you can check out visited websites in your web browsers, along with the number of visits, as well as add any page to the whitelist or blacklist. These two lists can be managed anytime, in order to add new entries or remove existing ones if you change your mind.

Doesn’t work on newer Windows

Internet Security Filter had little to no impact on the computer’s performance in our tests. Too bad that it’s not compatible with newer Windows. Otherwise, it comes packed with easy-to-use and powerful features for keeping your computer safe by filtering Internet connections made by other PC users, programs or websites.
