What Stealth Mode Do?


I just installed Bitdefender Internet Security. When I restarted the computer and I noticed it came up that it blocked a port, so I carried on and tried to get on the internet when I realized that my internet wasn't working. I start to check firewall setting and found stealth mode was turned on. Then i switch off stealth mode, internet start to work fine. I am not sure what stealth mode even does. Does anyone know why it's blocking my connection when it's turned on?


  • hello stealth mode hides the ports on your computer from the internet. if you are having problems connecting, try setting the firewall to home/office mode or trusted. I would suggest only using trusted mode if you are behind a router firewall.

  • What else it does essentially?? One of my purchased license of a software went non-working after I activated stealth mode. Does the stealth mode affect the online license check in any way by the installed software??
