GlassWire Review

Sven Sorensen
Bandwidth monitoring software that detects unusual activity and integrates a firewall to prevent network access to any application
A review of GlassWire by Sven Sørensen

Glasswire is an interesting mix of firewall control and bandwidth management that can give users an idea of what programs are sending data to online servers.

The program features an intuitive interface which provides lovely graphs and graphics without having to worry about technical terms and networking lingo.

With Glasswire, you get full access to a window on what applications are sending data to which servers. For example, you can view what your web browser is doing and how much data it is sending and when.

The program gives you a view of how much data has been sent and received over a period of time by using the slider at the bottom of the interface.

One important reason to use Glasswire is the fact that it can give you a real way to detect malware which sends and receives data with the "mother ship" and gives you details on which processes are using your network and when.

The firewall section of Glasswire is also useful because it can stop programs from using the Internet connection.

The sheer amount of information that Glasswire provides is impressive and its use of colorful graphics can make monitoring Internet traffic a little bit fun.

To sum it up: Glasswire is an excellent network monitoring tool combined with a handy firewall application which provides you with a wealth of information.

GlassWire can snif network traffic and manage Internet bandwidth.

GlassWire features and highlights:
  • Visualizes your current and past network activity by traffic type, application, and geographic location
  • Visualizes all past and present network data in an easy to understand graph
  • Keeps track of your daily, weekly, or monthly bandwidth usage
  • Shows all network activity on an easy to use graph
