    Hello Luciana.

    Which special application you want to get blocked?. Or what exactly didn't work?.

    So are you able to activate the applock? And did you create a security pattern for it to unlock?

    Hello,

    I would also like to understand how to block an application.

    In the Avira Firewall Manager, when I select menu Programs, I have the option to add a program, and then have to select/unselect the Profiles "Domain", "Private" and "Public". What are these profiles? What is the impact if I deselect these profiles?

    Once I have set up a program, in the menu Rules I see the application with more details:

    - Direction Inbound: what does that mean? Is all traffic blocked or allowed to go inbound to that application? 

    - Can I update an existing rule?

    If I add a new a Program Rule, I can select application name and program path:

    - What is the purpose of the State (Active)?

    - What is the purpose of the Direction (Inbound/Outbound)?

    - What is the purpose of the Action (Allow/Deny)?

    Thanks,

    Lourens

    Hello Lourens,

    It sounds like that you're using an outdated Avira version as we don't have any firewall manager for a couple of years. If that's the case, sadly, this version isn't supported anymore.

    Please tell us more details about the product which you are using.

    Best,
