TinyWall 2.1.13



Designed to harden and control the advanced firewall built into Windows, TinyWall includes a combination of features that sets it apart from both commercial and freeware firewalls. TinyWall does not display popups that "urge users to allow". In fact, it will not notify you of any blocked action. Rather than displaying popups, TinyWall allows users to whitelist or unblock programs via various methods. For example, you can just initiate whitelisting by a hotkey, then click on a window that you want to allow. Or, you can select an application from the list of running processes. Of course, the traditional way of selecting an executable also works..


Staying safe while connected to a local network and, more importantly, when browsing the Internet is a job for dedicated utilities, like antivirus or firewall solutions.

Even if Windows comes, in the later iterations, with an effective firewall application, there are some programs that can complement it and, thus, make the PC a safer place.

Such a tool is TinyWall, a lightweight app whose main purpose is to block malicious processes and prevent insecure connections.

The simple interface makes it easy to configure the software, but the way in which it works, by blocking all connections from the get-go, may bring it a lot of dislikes, at least after the first hours of usage.

The main rule you will have to follow when this tool is installed and running onto your system is that if you notice a certain program that requires network or Internet access/connectivity is not working properly, check the firewall.

You can add all verified and trusted applications to the exceptions list you will find in the 'Settings' area of TinyWall. In fact, there are two such lists, the other one being for 'Special Exceptions' which apply to the whole system.

Thus, you will be able to give the green light for certain software to receive and send data through the available connections, while also enabling or deactivating supplementary network traffic features.

These include file and printer sharing, Windows network discovery, Windows update, Windows Remote Desktop or Remote Assistance to name just a few.

The monitoring capabilities of TinyWall will make it possible for you to view the running processes, the ports and protocols they use as well as the destination and remote address. It is also possible to check out the apps that were blocked I the last couple of minutes by the firewall.

To sum things up, it is clear that TinyWall can be a great helper, but it is mostly useful for users who are not bothered by numerous trips to the settings zone where exceptions upon exceptions must be created to have all the installed programs function without glitches.
