Ask Comodo Joe

Dear Comodo Joe:

I love playing MMORPGs. Can I use Comodo Internet Security for online games? Do you have an automatic gaming mode?

Dear Fred:

Like you, millions of people around the world enjoy playing Massively Multi-Player Online Role-Playing Games.

As of version 3.12, CIS does not have an AUTOMATIC gaming mode. However, for gamers, we have provided a mode called “Training Mode”. Both Defense+ and Firewall have this mode, designed mostly for complex applications like games.

First you should manually set individual components (Firewall, Defense+) to this mode, and then start playing your games. After this, CIS will be configured automatically with very flexible rules. In the future, you will not need to do anything else for gaming. Also, Fred, you might want to have a look at the MSNBC report that says that the average US adult gamer is overweight and depressed. I hope you will supplement your online gaming with exercise and face-to-face social activity.
