Traffic control is a feature that is available in two TechGenie products – TechGenie Total Security and TechGenie Absolute. It is used to control the flow of data between two computers as per your need. Traffic control option present under firewall can block or allow different types of traffic.
Firewall, as we know helps in protecting your computer from inbound and outbound unauthorized connection attempts, both on local networks and on the Internet. It keeps a track of connection attempts and decides which to allow and which to block.
The subcategories of Traffic Control in firewall are as follows:
1. Internet Connection Sharing
It enables support for Internet Connection Sharing. You can Turn-on Internet connection sharing when you need to share your Internet connection.
2. Port Scan Blocking
It detects and blocks attempts to find out which ports are open. Port scans are frequently used by hackers to find out which ports are open on your computer. They might then break into your computer if they find a less secure or vulnerable port. You can turn off Wi-Fi connection monitoring or port scan blocking if network vulnerability is detected.
This is how Traffic Control can help you. So, go for it and keep your PC safe by managing different types of traffic coming on your PC.
