12.9.9: How to Manage Network Security with Windows Defender Firewall

  • Page ID

    The experience also includes an area to monitor and manage Windows Defender Firewall settings, which you can access with the following steps:

    1. Open Windows Defender Security Center.
    2. Click on Firewall & network protection.
    3. On the page, you can view at a glance in which network profile the firewall is currently enabled and protecting you from unauthorized access.

    The one marked as "active" is the network profile currently in use. You can also click any of the networks to disable the firewall and block all incoming network connections for a profile (Windows Central, n.d.).
