A flashy network monitoring tool 2 stars by OnePiece Jan 24, 2018 (Read all my 11 reviews)
This is a revision of my previous favorable review, after the changes that version 2 brought. GlassWire is essentially a network activity monitoring tool that will inform you when your applications first access the net (in- and outbound connections are both detected), or they change (e.g. are updated or perhaps modified by malware). You are informed about these events in small popup windows. In addition, you can see the active applications and their connections, the destination of these connections, etc. The usual stuff. If one noticed anything suspicious, they could block the corresponding program from accessing the net -- in the previous version. Thus it had some simplified "firewall-like" functionality. This was removed from the free edition starting with version 2, leaving you with a fancy network monitoring tool that consumes a bit more resources than its alternatives, and displays an annoying popup urging you to upgrade. Not recommended anymore. show Review details
Lousy interface 1 stars by objective Aug 27, 2016 (Read all my 10 reviews)
I know I will be assailed for dissenting, as always, but I don't care. I like the feature set, but I hate the interface. I hate the style over substance. The grey-on-lighter-grey text which is hard to read; the tiny fonts; the non-sizable columns; the scattered design of the overall interface; the constant needless disk writing. show Review details
