And its working completely depends on the settings made by the user. Don't think that enabling firewall can make you secure. There are some tasks that cannot be accomplished by a firewall and they are email viruses and phishing. Because firewall cannot scan the information present in your emails, it cannot safeguard you from those attacks.
