Ok so my router say if i discard ping it could be safer.here is what it say
Block WAN Ping

When you "Block WAN Ping", you are causing the public WAN IP address on the DI-524 to not respond to ping commands. Pinging public WAN IP addresses is a common method used by hackers to test whether your WAN IP address is valid.

So what are the cons and pros>? :)

Realistically you're more likely to get run down by a bus than get discovered on the internet by a "hacker". Bearing in mind buses pass millions of people every day and a tenth of one percent of them will have an incident, then the internet is used by billions of people every hour of the day, so you're more likely to get spotted by something you've downloaded rather than them coming to you.

Think about what you've just written.
If you should know a hacker friend, why would he hack you? And why would you give him your computer? If he is a hacker, he'd have his own computer. What would he want with yours? Far easier to come round your house and sit in front of it.
