Setting a Password

Setting a password lets you protect your ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall security software from unauthorized administrative actions. Once you set the password, only the users that know the password can change the configuration, shut down, or uninstall the ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall security software on your computer.

To set a password:

  1. Open the ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall software client startup page.
  2. Select Preferences from the Tools drop-down menu.

    The Preferences configuration window opens.

  3. Click Set Password.

    Password configuration window opens.

  4. Type in a password.

    Note - Password is case sensitive and must be from 6 to 31 characters in length.

  5. Re-type the password to verify.
  6. Select Allow others to use programs without a password, if necessary.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Restart ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall security software for the password protection to work.

    Note - After you setup the password, the ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall security software will open a password window and ask you to enter the password, if you try to make any settings changes, shut it down, or uninstall it.
