What are people saying about WinPatrol Firewall

Chris I purchased this on Sun, Feb 15, 2015.from Ruiware, LLC.
At that time, it was beta and in the email it states: You will receive an email with each release of a WinPrivacy public beta, feel free to install it.
In addition, you will receive an email when WinPrivacy goes live if you'd rather wait for the shipping product.

I have never received another email.

At the time I purchased it, it was Lifetime Updates/Upgrades. Is that still the case?
Oct 18 2015 at 1:15am Copy Link
Constantin Florea @Chris, I have just forwarded your comment to the vendor as he will be able to better help with the issue you mention.
BitsDuJour Admin - Oct 18 2015 at 1:42am Copy Link
Bret Lowry @Chris, Hi Chris. My apologies you did not receive any emails from us, there must be a problem with the email address we have on file for you. Yes, you still have a Lifetime License, that will not change.
You can download the installer from http:/www.winpatroltogo.c...-setup.msi.

Please note, on our About-Us page, we have support email addresses posted from both WinPatrol and WinPrivacy. Best to email Feel free to write to us directly with any questions or concerns.

Roberto @Chris, I'm just an old time customer of WinPatrol. They are one of the most reliable and honest vendors all around. I just use the default windows AV and the winpatrol/winprivacy combo, with malwarebytes (on demand).

I'm a happy camper with that.

_*_ I owned WinPatrol (lifetime) for some time and really appreciated how it protected my PC. I recently purchased the 3-pack of all software offered (lifetime versions) and find WinPatrol, WinPrivacy, and WinAntiRansom (beta) make for a great trio of applications for overall protection of one's PC.

Well worth a look, and trial; it is likely you will be well pleased.

Maz Hi Brett Lowry, I purchased this software(WinPrivacy Family Pack) while it is still in beta too. It was Apr 18, 2015. I never receive any updates from you guys till now regarding the software. That is the lifetime license as well. I've sent an email to Please check and reply. Thanks.

JP Hi Bret, long time user of WinPatrol and would love to buy this. Any chance of buying with it with lifetime licence? If so you have a sale

Barnet Hello Bret, I thought I saw a discounted bundle deal on your website but now cannot find it. Is there one still available?
Nov 4 2015 at 4:02am Copy Link
Constantin Florea @Christian User, Today's (11/04/2015) promotion is for the Lifetime license. The regular price of the Lifetime license is $24.95:
This has been updated by the vendor in the product page.

The discounted price is $12.47 so the discount is 50%.
BitsDuJour Admin - Nov 4 2015 at 4:56am Copy Link
Bret Lowry Hi Maz,

My apologies for your not receiving your license yet, I wish you had written to us sooner so that we could have sent you your license sooner.
Sometimes the license emails we send out end up in junk email folders or aren't delivered properly.
I will reply to the email you sent with your license.

Bret Lowry Hi Barnet,

Thank you for asking. Our pre-beta sale ended October 17th when our new product WinAntiRansom was released into beta.

However, because of popular demand we have continued to sell Lifetime LIcenses for the time being.

Ruiware, LLC - Nov 4 2015 at 5:30am Copy Link
Bret Lowry Hi Jason,

My apologies for any confusion. This sale is for the purchase of a Lifetime License.

Our apologies for the incorrect link. That was my fault.
You can download the latest version of WinPrivacy, released just yesterday evening at http://www.winpatroltogo....11.752.exe.

Cary Adams Google Chrome labels your download page as a security risk

The site ahead contains harmful programs

Attackers on might attempt to trick you into installing programs that harm your browsing experience (for example, by changing your homepage or showing extra ads on sites you visit).

I hope to get a trial copy there since the BDJ trial link only points to WinPatrol (I already have a lifetime family license for that product). How can I safely get a trial copy of WinPrivacy?
Nov 4 2015 at 7:19am Copy Link
Bret Lowry Hi Cary,

That is a false positive. I just double-checked and it appears they have already corrected their error.

Kelly Hamblin I installed WinPrivacy to try it. I feel really stupid, but I do not know what Canvas and Non-Canvas Fingerprinting is, nor can I find information on it. Clicking Help on the app takes me to the website where it is not explained. Right now on the Non-Canvas Fingerprinting tab, I see BitsduJour, because I have this page open, and I also see, and I don't know what that is.
Nov 4 2015 at 1:55pm Copy Link
Bret Lowry Hi Kelly,

My apologies for not having a good explanation of those on the site. When we originally write WinPrivacy, reporting on Canvas Fingerprinting was all the rage.

A short description is this. Canvas Fingerprinting is creating a "fingerprint" of your computer and reporting it back to a central location along with "other" data. Then what happens is the next website you go to does the same thing. After a while, the central location can build an entire dossier about your browsing habits, and on whatever other information is sent to them. This is of course sent out to the companies who pay for this service and add their canvas fingerprinting code to their site. What we do is block that code from sending off of your computer. This way, you become invisible to the Canvas Fingerprinting folks.
Non-Canvas Fingerprinting site are those that do not participate in Canvas Fingerprinting. So, if you have a choice between two sites, visit the one on the non-canvas fingerprinting tab.

Gary Smith In helping someone purchase the program, I noticed the (Payment receipt from e-mail from Avangate announcing the purchase has the following statement:

The purchased product(s)/ service(s) will be delivered in accordance with the terms and conditions published on and agreed for your order.

Upon checking on, I cannot find any such terms or conditions published. Where are they located, or is the Avangate statement not accurate? If so, I advise looking into this. Also, I suggest the website have a section that can be easily found that will describe what happens once a purchase is made or how the produce/services will be delivered.

BitsDuJUser I am extremely sceptical in giving access to executables produced by companies based in the United Stated of America, where the governmental Patriot Act applies.

The above offer relates to an executable that will be loaded all the time as a service. It declares to block or register data passing by through the internet connection of the computer.

One of my first doubt was, what if there is a backdoor installed in the executable that allows access to unauthorised persons, which we would not know.

I have no answer to this and would not even like to ask such a question to this company. This company has been producing excellent software since many years now.

But when I downloaded and installed it as a trial version, I found very basic function in it. The Advanced feature tab is useless and allows change of colours, no more.

Overall, I could not find anything thats so worth for me that I would purchase it for soo cheap as offered, even if the company has produced excellent software in the past.

I would have sincerely wished that the company would have pumped some more features, at least bringing some functions of the other software they have and allowed us to use it. This would make more sense to buy it for the price at least.

When I installed and tested it for a couple of days, it just listed cookies, i.e. non-fingerprint data and did not block it, I believe.

Regardless of my opinion, this offer is for FIVE PCS and it is worth for someone, who wants to trust an American company. I decided to wait until they bring out some more and new features and functions.

Steve Hull I am a longtime user of WinPatrol and now am using WinAntiRansom and am very pleased with both of these programs and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I know this has nothing to do with today's offer, but I just wanted to vouch for this company. They produce very good software and provide very prompt and courteous tech support. As far as this program goes, I am not getting it as I don't really feel the need for it, but if you are ever looking for a reputable company, Ruiware, the maker of these programs is a very good company.
Jul 7 2016 at 9:51am Copy Link
BitsDuJUser Dear Mr. Hull, Does the American Partiot Act recognize recognized companies based in the United States of America and give an exemption to these companies?
I still have one of the initial version of Winpatrol in my archives of software they released before almost a decade. I know this company as well.

However using a program for some function is different that using an executable that should be loaded ROUND the clock and have full control on the internet streams.
Here one _has_ TO OPEN THE FIREWALL and allow all activities on data observation.

In my computer, I have uninstalled all executables produced by companies who are based under the American Patriot Act and have they should be loaded around the clock having full control of internet data streams.

I had dreams that NSA was based at my home in my computer because of these executables, although I had no reasons to believe this in real life.

Regardless of this, I support your comment in that you say that this is a reputed company making excellent software. Ofcourse, this has been known to me since many years now. I myself use them occasionally even today. But then, when I use it, make sure to terminate the program and watch in the task manager that the executable is actually terminated!
Jul 7 2016 at 10:10am Copy Link
Steve Hull Mr. Wonder,

Are you telling me that you have programs on your computer but you delete the executable file? I must be dense because either I am misunderstanding you or I didn't know that you could run a program on your computer without the executable file being there.
Jul 7 2016 at 11:15am Copy Link
BitsDuJUser Dear Mr. Hull,

You misunderstand my comments, as evident from your comments.

I, however, refuse to answer your questions because we are not in a forum discussion here. Your question has nothing to do with the offer pcaled by the company here. Everyone needs to reqpect the interest of the company who placed this offer.

I placed my comments, rather very carefully phrased the sentences, and transported some objective message that every single purchaser may want to have some direct or indirect hints to help making up their mind to purchase it or not.

I am not an enemy of this company and do not run tese kind of champagnes against such companies based in the USA. However, I needed to transport some personal expreience, which I did in association to my comments, experience and product perception.

Beyond that I would not like to extend this discussion and keep fairness to the company as well as all other users, who may not want to invest their time but may want to make up their mind objectively, if they wanna buy it or not. I give no one a recommendation or either buy it or not to buy it. They make their choice. Thats all.

Nelson Carvalho Hi,

Sorry my English.

I would like a clarification:
"Each license Allows installation on 5 computers, and WinPrivacy PLUS may be used at exactly the same time on each of Them."
But there is a version offered "WinPrivacy PLUS, Five PC License v2016.2.851 ($ 9.97)."
What is the difference between what is being offered by the $ 4.97 and $ 9.97 as regards installation in PC 5?

Thank you.

Bret Lowry Hi Nelson,

WinPrivacy is available in 1, 3 and 5 user licenses. During this sale, the one user license sells for $4.97, 3 user for $7.47 and 5 user for $9.97.

I hope this helps.
Thank You.

The Oneiros Hello, all!

So this is a firewall, right?
Will this conflict with my current one?
Am I allowed to control which programs will get access to the internet, and when?
Is it included in any other suite, ie, WinPatrol Plus?

Thanks in advance.
Oct 27 2016 at 7:57am Copy Link
Bret Lowry Hi Oneiros,

Yes, it works as a firewall, allowing you to easily control which programs have access to the Internet. As for the when, the product currently does not allow for a schedule when each program would be allowed to access the Internet.
Instead, to block a program from using the Internet simply open the Internet Programs Page, highlight the program in question and select "Block Program".

To allow a program that is currently blocked, open the Blocked Programs Page, highlight the program in question and select "Allow Program".

That easy. This feature is not available in WinPatrol PLUS or WinAntiRansom PLUS, those program server their own distinct purposes.

Bud Gallagher Must Have Software

WinPrivacy, WinPatrol and WinAntiRamson are programs that should be installed on all computers. The programs all work as advertised and if needed you will find that the support you need (if you need support) is excellent and fast and most likely provided by Bret himself.

I have owned WinPrivacy and WinAntiRamson since day one of their release and have owned WinPatrol Plus for more years then I care to remember.
