GlassWire protects your computer from threats by providing you with visualized data about your network activity. GlassWire notifies you about suspicious hosts, ARP spoofing attacks, odd changes to your computer, new network connections from unknown applications and numerous other security related alerts.
The app's Firewall will provide a secure boundary between your computer and the Internet. You can see the data by viewing it from the Firewall tab; it provides information about what applications have accessed the Internet and it can block any that are suspicious, violating your privacy, or wasting your bandwidth.
Key Features Include:
- Protects your computer and privacy by revealing all your Internet connections.
- Crisp network visualizer.
- Easy to use interface.
- Free firewall protection.
- GlassWire uses limited system resources.
- Simplified and self-explanatory user interface.
Overall, GlassWire is a simple tool for network monitoring that comes with a built-in firewall, designed for allowing/denying Internet access to your apps. Both advanced and novice users will be able to operate GlassWire without any problems due to the crisp interface and the clear manner in which the information is presented.
