Online Armor

If you’re a power user and using MS Windows, there are times when the Windows firewall gets turned off without notice due to programs your installed. That’s why I decided to add a backup firewall.
If you buy or bank online, send and receive emails, download programs or just browse the internet then you need Online Armor.
