A privacy leak possibility!

Hi

I wanted to ask does comodo firewall protects against third parties along a connection from viewing you browsing/downloading?

I mean when I browse, my browser connects to my ISP then to the website along this route am I protected? can some one view what information are sent ? if yes is it possible to prevent this? if no then way to go (L)

cheers,

How CFP works and what it can do is restricted solely to your PC. It cannot alter the security of any transmission path outside of the PC it is running on. The security between you and the site you are browsing is largely set by whether the viewed site is secured.

thanks for the reply,

cant comodo create a service for secure connecting like
(my pc (with a comodo portal installed) -->secured connection–>(comodo server)–>not always a secure connection–>(desired site))
so if I connected to my e-mail which will be secured connection between comodo and hotmail for e.g. it will be a completely secured route or something like that

Comodo have a service called Trust Connect which provides a secured connection between you and a Comodo server, which “sort of” acts as a proxy between you and the rest of the net.

Unfortunately it isn’t a free service, but it’s not horrifically expensive.

thanks I did not notice this service before :slight_smile:

[...] So if the website begins with https:// instead of http://, it is a secure site. Almost 99% of the browsers can connect to web servers either using http or https. The address bar in the browser will begin with https instead of http, if a web site is secured. Web browsers like IE, Firefox etc., display a pad ”lock” icon to indicate the website is secure, which also displays https in the address bar. This padlock icon is displayed only when an SSL certificate is installed by their web server. If the padlock icon and the web link begin with https then it can be concluded that the site is legitimate and secure to provide confidential information or carry financial transactions.
