Why should I use an Internet firewall?

Reasons to use an Internet Firewall

Every computer user who connects to the Internet needs internet firewall protection. You may think your system is safe since you only go online once in a while and send email. In this day no system is safe and without firewall protection, you are basically opening your door to hackers and thieves. You may feel that no one would want to get into your system, but some hackers have created robots that scan the Internet and if they find a non-protected system they attack. If you are connected to the Internet via cable you are especially vulnerable because your system is constantly connected, therefore it is vital for your security that you have Internet firewall software installed on your computer.
