A button to purge/flush current (temp) permissions [M1984]

1. What actually happened or you saw:
When you are prompted to Allow or Block internet access for an application that has no permanent rule, your decision will be remembered for the duration of such application’s lifetime (i.e. until its process is terminated). That’s fine, however…

2. What you wanted to happen or see:
…If it’s technically possible, it would be great to have a button/option with which you could just “flush” current (temporary) permissions. I.e. even if a process/application still lives at some point, and it has no rule, and is currently able to connect to the internet because you clicked/tapped Allow (or maybe being blocked because you chose Block), clicking/tapping this button would purge all temporary permissions (so you would again be prompted to allow/block in this case).

3. Why you think it is desirable:
Because with Windows 10, things have been getting more complicated security/privacy-wise.

4. Any other information:
Keep up the good work. :slight_smile:


Additionally a future wish could be a list that shows such temp rules and which lets you select certain ones to remove and perhaps make permanent?

That would be even better, I suppose.

I’ve asked for an “Allow Once” button for the Sandbox. It would also be appropriate for the FW as well.

Allow Block Allow Once


This would alleviate the accumulation of temp rules to be purged.


Are we anywhere near this being implemented?

Another possible option I thought of the other day: Allow for N minutes. (after that the permission is revoked)
