Zonealarm Free Unsafe Snooze option ?
I have latest zonealarm free !
I noticed what i think is a security breach! :confused:
I can choose Snooze for 5 min without introducing my preset password!
Cant hackers do the same?
Also , when the firewall is off i get no warning (tray icon or security center)!
Can someone please help with this situation ?

No, ZA cannot be controlled remotely. So, there is no way to activate it unless in front of the PC. Another story is if you are infected by a virus then I am afraid if the malware is targeting ZA not much can be done. You should have a good antivirus on top of ZA firewall or move to the ZA Antivirus + firewall free edition.
If ZA was installed with your windows firewall ON then ZA will turn ON windows firewall as soon as been shutdown. This will keep you safe even with ZA off. If you want to be advised about ZA then you need to install ZA with your windows firewall turned OFF (not reccomended)
