Blocking Torch browser

Hi All,


I would really appreciate if some one can help me on this.


I am planning to block Torch browser through a firewall rule, using App-ID. But as per information in the community we cannot entirely block the functionality of Torch browser using App-ID. Once we block from the security rule, normal web traffic will go through the firewall.


Please let me know if there is an alternative way to block torch browser.


Thank You,

This kind of needs to be a double prong approach; it's not something can be done fully from the firewall in and of itself.


1) Block torrenting traffic on the firewall. You can also block access to the domain and other common download locations for Torch ( 

2) You also can block it at the client side of things if you manage the endpoints within the network. Just deploy AppLocker or equivalent and setup rules to deny launching Torch Media applications. 



I really appreciate your prompt reply.


Thank you,

Gayan Samarakoon.
