Free IP Blocker for Professionals

People who are looking for a way to block various different IP addresses on their computer should make sure that they take a look at PeerGuardian. This programme is available completely free of charge and comes packed with features to make it very versatile.

Time to Get Protected

Despite being free to download and use PeerGuardian comes packed with great features such as a special list editor support for multiple lists automatic updates and blocking. Using this programme is the safest way to make sure that privacy is protected when using P2P and a large number of people from all around the world are already taking advantage of it for both personal and professional use while various blacklisted IP addresses are also included in the package. However using this type of programme is not exactly instinctive and anyone who wants to take full advantage of it may find that they need to spend a little bit of time playing around with it before they can use it to full effect.

Do You Value Your Security?

People who are unfamiliar with this kind of programme may have trouble getting to grips with PeerGuardian at least at first at the rather basic look of the programme may put some people off. However it is free to download and use and once users become familiar with it the programme tends to work flawlessly.

PeerGuardian is Phoenix Labs’ premier IP blocker for OS X. PeerGuardian integrates support for multiple lists, list editing, automatic updates, and blocking all of IPv4 (TCP, UDP, ICMP, etc), making it the safest and easiest way to protect your privacy on the Internet.
