It is good? Worth to buy? What do people think about this? Pros and cons! Review 2022.
There are several programs you can use to block programs from accessing the internet and monitor your network traffic, but none of them are as simple to use as GlassWire, a free program that allows you to monitor your computer’s network connection and block the program access to the internet.
The main difference between GlassWire and other network monitoring tools is that it shows the information in an easy-to-understand way, even for those with no technical knowledge.
After installing GlassWire, it will monitor the internet activity on your computer and whenever a new program connects to the internet, it will display a notification, so that you are aware.
These alerts are also displayed in GlassWire’s “Alerts” tab, where you can see information such as the date and time of the first connection, program name, and the IP address of the server it is connected to.
By default, all traffic is allowed, but you can block any program from accessing the internet. Just open the “Firewall” tab and click the On/Off button to activate the firewall, which is disabled by default.
Once this is done, to block a program, click on the fire icon displayed next to the programs in the “Firewall” tab or click on the name of the program to open the information window and select the “Block”.
The “Graph” tab displays a graph of network activity. You can view traffic for the last few minutes, hours, day, week or month, as well as filter the information displayed in the graph by program and traffic type.
Finally, on the “Usage” tab you can see statistics about network usage, such as total data sent and received and detailed traffic statistics sorted by program, host and traffic type.
In summary, GlassWire is a good option for you to monitor your computer’s internet activity and block the access of programs to the internet. It also has a paid version with additional features.
