You can add a program to Program Control to control their ability to access the Internet. When you add the program, you can configure its access settings in Program Rules. You can allow, block, or create the custom rules that are specific to the program that you add.

Manually configured Firewall settings for programs override any settings that Automatic Program Control makes. However, NortonLifeLock recommends you to retain the settings that Automatic Program Control makes as and when you run your programs.

  1. Start Norton.

    If you see the My Norton window, next to Device Security, click Open.

  2. In the Norton main window, click Settings.
  3. In the Settings window, click Firewall.
  4. On the Program Control tab, click Add.
  5. In the Select a program dialog box, browse to the executable file for the program that you want to add.
  6. Click Open.
  7. In the Security Alert window, analyze the reputation information of the program.

    Norton fetches and displays the reputation information and the recommended access setting.

  8. In the Options drop-down list, select the access level that you want this program to have.

    Your options are:

    Allow Always Allow all access attempts by this program.
    Block Always Deny all access attempts by this program.
    Manual configure Create the rules that control how this program accesses the Internet.

    You can set the following criteria for a rule:

    • Action
    • Connections
    • Computers
    • Communications
    • Advanced
    • Description

    If you select this option, you must follow the instructions in the wizard that appears and configure the rule.

  9. Click OK.
