GlassWire is software that integrates into one application network monitor and security screen. GlassWire provides a visual graphical visualization of traffic in which any network activity is easy to spot.
The built-in firewall in GlassWire allows you to easily block unwanted network connections. The program is able to display information about each process running on the computer plus the IP address of each active network connection. The image refreshes every few seconds, and a message appears when a new network connection is established.
GlassWire has a powerful tool for analyzing and notifying the user of new processes that are trying to connect to the Internet. The warning is one-time, but remains recorded in the system log, along with detailed information about the situation.
Whats New in GlassWire 2.2.291 Final:
- You can now see services and process IDs related to your apps on GlassWire’s Firewall.
- Added a warning for our firewall “block all” mode, so a user who is using our remote monitoring feature will know they are about to block their own connection.
- Removed an option to not show the ports on the firewall tab. This option is now on by default for everyone.
- Fixed a bug that could cause some remote access addresses to not be saved in GlassWire’s settings.
- Fixed a bug where a graph pop-up could show zero stats in some situations.
- Fixed a bug where the mini viewer had an alert bubble that could overlap its header.
- Fixed a crash (reported in our forum) that could be caused by running an app from a network storage device.
- Fixed a bug that could cause an app started on a network share to be unblockable.
- Fixed a crash that could be caused by VirusTotal scanning when an app is on a network share.
- Fixed an issue that causes all apps to be blocked on the firewall if “ask to connect” is enabled, and if the GlassWire database is moved from one PC to another.
