Currently has few features and need to enhance

Please make the icons on the dock disappear, the icons on the menu bar are enough. The alert mode should allow system apps to pass.

Seemed nice at first - but blocks VPN connections

In today's day and age, VPNs are everywhere - how can basic built in functionality of a VPN be blocked? Well it is I guess. After figuring out how to actually stop the app (play/stop button doesn't work, firewall was still on in network settings) the VPN connects again. Pretty massive oversite - does paragon not use vpn tunnels?? How could they miss this?

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback.
We are aware that VPN is blockred while using Firewall, but uring the investigation of this issue it turned out that that the causes this limitation is most likely on the side of the macOS: system extentions are blocking VPN connections. This issue is resolved in the 11.0 Big Sur version.

Just installed the firewall app on a late-2012 MaMini with Catalina installed. Will report any problems. — MacGuru
