What makes Connectify Hotspot the world’s most popular WiFi sharing software? For starters, we have the easiest and most reliable virtual router on the market. But, there are more than a few bells and whistles that give our hotspot software even more of an edge. From wirelessly flinging files to using your hotspot as a WiFi extender for your home network, Connectify Hotspot is the most fully-featured virtual router out there.

Today, we’re going to take a look at the Global Firewall Settings that are available to users of our premium Hotspot offering. We know that when you’re sharing WiFi with friends, family, or colleagues you might want to have a bit of extra control over your connections. That’s why the paid versions of Connectify Hotspot include one-click firewall controls that let you control whether connected devices can access the Internet and/or your Local Area Network (LAN)

If you want to control firewall permissions on a per-client basis, just head over to the ‘Clients’ tab and right-click on the device you want to change firewall settings for.

From the dropdown menu, just select ‘Disable Internet Access’ or ‘Disable Local Access’ depending on what traffic you would like to prevent the client device from accessing. Using Firewall controls, you can use Connectify Hotspot for the safest WiFi sharing experience available.
