ZoneAlarm Free
Take control of network traffic using ZoneAlarm Free

Connecting a computer to the internet leaves it open to a range of attacks. Hackers can use a variety of tools to gain access to your machine, while malicious software can broadcast personal information to a server on the other side of the world. By far the easiest way to take control of how your internet connection is used is to install a firewall and ZoneAlarm Free proves that you do not need to part with any money in order to be protected.

Unlike some firewall, ZoneAlarm Free benefits from being incredibly easy to setup and use - there is no need to configure the program in advance as protection is provided from the moment of installation and settings can be adjusted as the program is used. The control of incoming and outgoing network traffic is achieved through the use of rules. Whenever a program attempts to connect to the internet, or another machine attempts to connect to your computer, a warning popup will appear asking whether the network traffic should be permitted or blocked. Over time, as you indicate the type of traffic that is permissible, ZoneAlarm Free learns about how your computer is used and can therefore provide better advise about whether network traffic can be trusted or not.

The beauty of the firewall is that you do not need to be a network expert to protect your computer - almost all of the hard work is done for you.

What's new in v15.123.17051 (see changelog for more info)?

- Improved: Product update notifications.
- Improved: Stability and performance enhancements.

Verdict:

Controlling network traffic and appearing invisible to potential hackers is made easy with ZoneAlarm Free

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
