Easiest Way to Use Hacker Deterrent
If you want maximum security and ease-of-use, we recommend that you combine Hacker Deterrent with Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit. Hacker Deterrent automatically blocks all applications from accessing the internet except for browsers. Meanwhile, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is especially effective for shielding one type of application: browsers. Working together, this powerful one-two punch delivers automatic security and convenience. When using Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, you will no longer need to manage the green or yellow browser traffic in Hacker Deterrent. Therefore, to use Hacker Deterrent with Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit:
Click the Green Square: This filters all green allowed traffic. You no longer need to manage this traffic when Malwarebytes is running.
Click the Yellow Square: This filters all yellow allowed traffic. You no longer need to manage this traffic when Malwarebytes is running.
Run Malewarebytes Anti-Exploit: For download link and info: click here.
By removing the green and yellow traffic from the display, you reduce the number of entries by 90% or more — making it easy to control the little remaining traffic.
