Comodo Firewall

Anyone else use it here?..Is it safe?

Im just wondering,can security software providers such as Comodo view your internet activity and view info you have imput....in other words can they tell what your typing into sites?
Like passwords?usernames etc?

It just makes you think....how safe are these things?

The type of behavior you're asking about would be keylogging behavior, which is largely malicious in nature. For that, I would say no, Commodo firewall doesn't do that. It's a widely known software that is considered safe.

So you want to know whether your firewall is spying on you? Comodo is a respected product, its probably one of the safest in that respect. However, a firewall by its very function is privy to all bytes travelling to or from your computer and its source and destination.

I came across this Comodo privacy policy document.
