How to block everything except for white-listed applications 15 June 2020, 21:51
Currently, NetGenius uses a blacklist-type of blocking, allowing all apps to connect to the Internet except the ones that are explicitly blocked. I would like it to also have a whitelist-type mode, blocking every app from connecting except the ones that are explicitly allowed. That would be a neat addition to the software and I would say very useful to many. Thanks in advance.
PS: yes, I know I could do that by blocking directories, but the problem there is that NetGenius doesn't also block subdirectories, thus forcing me to block entire directory trees one by one, a thing that isn't humanly possible, as I have thousands of subdirectories in my hard drive.

If you wish, you can block the entire system drive and then manually unblock the applications you trust. For example:
- Block the whole disk C:\
- Switch the list display mode from Online to All.
- Launch the application you want to unblock - it should appear in the list.
- Right-click on it in the list, go to Limits and select No restrictions.
