Q10: Does Windows Defender have a firewall?

Yes, Windows Defender includes a firewall that provides protection to your computer from incoming and outgoing connections.

Windows Defender’s Firewall is a built-in network security feature included in the Windows operating system that monitors and controls all incoming and outgoing traffic on a user’s computer. It blocks unauthorized access to a computer by controlling the incoming and outgoing connections made to the computer as well as blocking malicious programs that try to access the computer.

The Firewall is enabled by default for all computers running Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. It can be accessed through the Windows Firewall Utility. Windows Defender’s Firewall keeps track of the programs and services that are trying to access your computer, allowing you to decide which ones to allow or block. It allows you to customize the settings to determine which applications and services are allowed to communicate with your computer, and which are not.

The Windows Defender Firewall also allows you to monitor your network activity and view detailed logs of the connections that have been made to the computer. This feature helps users keep track of suspicious activity in their network and take appropriate action if needed.

Windows Defender also uses an advanced detection technology known as ‘Intelligent Monitoring’. This technology helps protect your computer from potential threats by monitoring your behavior, alerting you if it detects any suspicious activities or connections, and helping you protect your computer from any threats that may arise.

Overall, Windows Defender’s Firewall helps protect a user’s computer from malicious attacks attempting to gain access to the machine or data contained on it. It is a great addition to any user’s security arsenal and can help reduce the risk of a successful attack.
