Is it ok if I keep Comodo’s Firewall and Defense+ in training mode? Is that safe or is my security being compromised?
I do keep it in training mode because I hate being interrupted when installing new apps. I know I can switch to training mode, install the app, then go back to my settings, but that is a hassle since I install/uninstall a lot.
Training Mode: Defense+ will monitor and learn the activity of any and all executables and create automatic 'Allow' rules until the security level is adjusted. You will not receive any Defense+ alerts in 'Training Mode'. If you choose the 'Training Mode' setting, we advise that you are 100% sure that all applications and executables installed on your computer are safe to run.
Tip: This mode can be used as the “Gaming Mode”. It is handy to use this setting temporarily when you are running an (unknown but trusted) application or Games for the first time. This will suppress all Defense+ alerts while Comodo Internet Security learns the components of the application that need to run on your machine and automatically create ‘Allow’ rules for them. Afterwards, you can switch back to ‘Train with Safe Mode’ mode).
You must not keep your installation in “Training Mode” otherwise anything and everything will be allowed and rules will be made for it automatically,so there would be no point having CIS(apart from AV)
Your basically just relyiing on any AV/S you may have to pick up anything it knows about.
Ok. I understand what you mean. I know how it works.
My only concern is that when Defense+ pops up asking me if I want to allow or block an application from using a file or connecting to the internet, and I press allow, it takes a lot of time before it allows the app. There is a big time delay from the moment you allow the app until it actually gains connection.
That’s what is not very convenient. Do you know any solution for this?
