What is the use of GlassWire?

GlassWire is a network security tool that was built to help you visually see what exactly your computer is doing over the internet and take full control of your network activity, security, and privacy. It also allows you to track your past and present network activity using the software’s easy-to-comprehend graph. This tool provides you alerts whenever it detects possible threats, helps you manage your firewall, and gives you an eye to monitor remote servers.

This handy software enables you to put extra layers of security on your computers and safeguards your privacy from malicious attacks. It has the capability to remove or block programs that consume a lot of your bandwidth, which can greatly speed up your internet connection. When you go to its menu tab, you can see more of the features and settings that this utility tool can offer.

For instance, its Skin feature enables you to customize your graph and choose your preferred color. To oversee your network monitor even when you are busy doing other stuff, you can enable its ‘Mini Viewer’ window through the ‘Show Mini Viewer’ button. You can even tweak its transparency and size as much as you want. Furthermore, it supports a wide range of language options that you can freely choose from.
