Description

You’ll be shocked by how many applications on your computer are sending your private data over the Internet without you knowing. GlassWire‘s free firewall and network monitor helps protect your privacy & security by monitoring your network activity for suspicious activity. Once suspicious activity is detected you can block the potential threat with GlassWire‘s built-in firewall management tool.

Features and Highlights

Network Monitor
GlassWire’s network monitor visualizes your current and past network activity by traffic type, application, geographic location, all on a beautiful and easy to understand graph. Go back in time up to 30 days and see what your computer or server was doing in the past. Click the graph to see details of what app or network event caused a spike in network activity.

Threat Monitoring
The program reveals hosts that are known threats, unexpected network system file changes, unusual application changes, ARP spoofing, DNS changes, and alerts you to the problem so you can take action. The software can also remotely monitor and help protect servers or other computers far away. Install the program on your server or remote PC and look out for unexpected threats or problems. If you see unexpected activity you can block it with the tool’s free firewall.

Free Firewall
The app’s free firewall reveals all your network activity so you can easily see what your computer is doing in the background. Glass Wire’s firewall shows you what current and past servers your computer is communicating with so you can see potential online threats and block them if necessary.

Note: Cannot Block All apps. Cannot use the Ask to Connect feature. No alerts when a new device connects to your network.
