If you want to have more control over your network activity on your computer, you might want to try SimpleWall, a simple tool that lets you configure Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) which can block applications from using the Internet. In this article, we will explain what SimpleWall is, how it works, and how you can use it to enhance your privacy and security.




SimpleWall is a simple tool to block applications from using the Internet



SimpleWall is a lightweight application that is less than a megabyte in size, and it is compatible with Windows 7 SP1 and higher operating systems. You can download either the installer or portable version from the official website. For correct working, you need administrator rights.


SimpleWall is not a control UI over Windows Firewall, and does not interact with it in any level. It works over WFP, which is a set of API and system services that provide a platform for creating network filtering applications. WFP is a development technology and not a firewall itself, but SimpleWall is the tool that uses this technology.


Some of the features of SimpleWall are:


  • Simple interface without annoying pop ups



  • Rules editor (create your own rules)



  • Internal blocklist (block Windows spy / telemetry)



  • Dropped packets information with notification and logging to a file feature



  • Allowed packets information with logging to a file feature



  • Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) support



  • Windows Store support



  • Windows services support



  • Free and open source



  • Localization support



  • IPv6 support



By using SimpleWall, you can benefit from blocking applications from using the Internet in several ways:


  • You can prevent unwanted connections that may compromise your privacy or security



  • You can reduce bandwidth usage and improve performance by limiting unnecessary traffic



  • You can save battery life by minimizing background activity



  • You can avoid annoying ads or pop ups that may appear in some applications



You can test how applications behave when they are offline or have limited access
