Current situation: Right now I'm in the Philippines where internet is crap and kinda expensive if you're not careful. I use the internet alot, but I limit my use when I'm out without wifi and using mobile data. (Most places you visit here don't have wifi and even landlines are so rare that even businesses don't have landlines and common data plans only last for 1-3 days so very limited data)
So I need a program that literally blocks everything unless I hit the "On" switch.
So an antivirus or internet protection of any kind is NOT needed but rather something that protects my bandwidth if you know what I mean.
As soon as my laptop connects to my phone's wifi hotspot, it becomes a hungry beast that hasn't eaten for days.
But every month or so I get to a place with Wifi and I want everything to connect and update (Reason why I don't disable updates/access via settings or windows firewall)
Looking for an application that fits this criteria or can be modified to fit criteria:
Allows only specific programs when turned on until turned off
Simple application "On/Off" switch
So far I've had a look at these:
And heaps more
But so far, only Sygate Personal Firewall fits except its a dinosaur that doesn't seem to have made it to Windows 7 let alone Windows 10.
(I'm on Windows 10 Pro 64bit)
Anyone got any other suggestions/opinions/favorite programs?
Or even one in the list that anyone knows that I can modify to fit the criteria? (Unfamiliar with these applications due to never having to worry about bandwidth usage in the past)
Rather ask than try downloading and trying them all since bandwidth is limited
Cheers in advance
