    Just installed v 1.2.871 on Win 10 Pro (x64).

    During installation, permissions were changed to allow AnyTxt Search through the firewall.

    That sounds dangerous. Why would a desktop searcher want to have this permission?

    Please explain and also tell how to prevent this access. At least, there should be an option during the install.

    It looks very impressive at first use, though.

    Thank you.

    Hi.
    Because Anytxt has http search service feature, it can be used as a http search engine.
    You can delete the firewall rule if you don’t need http search service.
    Thank you.
