How To Block Every Applications Access To Internet Until They're Allowed


Hi everyone,

My previous Bitdefender version (Internet Security) has a very nice feature, which allow me to monitor any application's attempting to connect to the Internet. Anytime an application request a connection, a pop up will be shown and ask question whether it should be allowed to connect or not.

However after I have upgraded to Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 (2 years licence) I couldn't find this any more. Please kindly advise whether this feature exists in BD IS 2013 or not, and how can I enable this feature in BD IS 2013?

Thank you very much and have a good day,

    Hi columbo,

    Thank you very much for your help. :wub:

    To benefit other users as well, that option in Bitdefender is called paranoid mode.

    From Bit Defender Home > Settings > Firewall Settings > Alert Intensity, Paranoid mode, switch to ON.

    Please see the attached screenshot.

    P/S: This option is very helpful when you suspect there're suspicious network activities on your computer.
