GeSWall supports four security policy templates named Security Levels. Switching between security levels changes GeSWall behavior and should be done with due caution. To choose a level, select the GeSWall root folder, as shown on the picture.
The current Security Level is marked by a red tick. Clicking on a different level triggers a level change, which is applied immediately (no reboot or other actions are required). Levels are ordered by the amount of security that they provide from Low at the bottom to High at the top.
Isolate jailed applications
GeSWall isolates only Jailed Applications (see Access Restriction Policy). All other applications are never isolated.
Isolate known applications
GeSWall only isolates applications, which have particular rules in the application database. The rules ensure non-intrusive application functionality. This is the default security level.
Auto-isolation, no pop-up dialogs
This level is similar to 'Isolate known applications' but it suppresses any pop-up dialogs. GeSWall applies the default actions without asking a user, so it automatically isolates known or untrusted source applications and denies access to confidential files. While this level is more secure because it does not rely on the user making correct decisions, it may cause undesirable restrictions.
