Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated PC User Guide.

To protect your computer from hackers and other threats, the firewall monitors processes that attempt to access the Internet. It also monitors the ports used for communicating with the Internet. Advanced users have control over whether SecureAnywhere will allow or block certain processes and port communications.

To manage active connections:

  1. From the system tray, double-click the Webroot icon.

    The main interface displays.

  2. Click the PC Security gear icon.

    The Scan & Shields pane displays.

  3. Click the View Active Connections button.

    The Active Connections window displays any processes with currently active connections to the Internet and the status of your system ports.

  4. Select a radio button to do any of the following:
    • To allow or block a process.
    • To allow or close a port.
  5. When you're done, click the Close button.
