Network ports (UDP) on the firewall


Honorable Member
I recently noticed that the firewall I am using on one of my devices does not block or filter UDP ports. It was stated on their website.
I like this firewall as it has great features that are more convenient for me.

I need to know how important are UDP ports.

I am at risk? Is it unsafe? Does this make the firewall useless?
Please let me know.

Important: yes
At risk: quite possibly
Unsafe: yes
Useless: Considering pretty much every firewall can handle UDP I'd say yes

That pisses me off because I used this firewall for years. I guess it is important to read all about a program before using it.

I would like to thank you as this is the 2nd time you provide me with assistance on threads.
