About Karoly Pados

My name is Karoly and I've been working on TinyWall since 2011.

TinyWall is one of the most well-known firewalls for the Windows world, and it is part of basically every comparison of free firewalls on the internet. It is completely free and comes without ads, telemetry, data collection or paid upgrades.

It is not free for me though. Beside some external costs such as for hosting and certificates, it also requires a lot of time investment. If you like my work on TinyWall and would like to support its development, please consider becoming a donor here on Patreon.

This covers the yearly code signing certificate (and the hosting fees). The certificate is important to avoid false positives in AV products, to ensure code- and download-authenticity for users, and to prevent Microsoft's SmartFilter from interfering with the downloads.
