Add a switch for controlling forbid only incoming or outgoing traffic

Dear GlassWire.
I suggest glasswire to add a new paid feature. A switch for controlling the incoming or outgoing traffic for each application in firewall rules. You can cut down the outgoing traffic of a particular application by just clicking the button, while the application continue to download data from internet.

Great ideas. I’m not sure if it’s possible to do this with the Windows Firewall API or not, but we will investigate.

Why is this a great idea? I’m no expert on the protocols but my understanding is that there is little unnecessary traffic particularly with stateless protocols like http. So what real-world problem does this resolve?

I’m concerned that there are many far more useful feature requests that shouldn’t be delayed for a feature like this.

I think this idea is related to this one, unless I am misunderstanding something.

You don’t understanding the circumstance in China. I found some application for http/ED2K/magnet download which is legal, it will continue upload some data although I didn’t run it. I even don’t know what it is uploading.
So I need this feature.

Yes, it is related but still has some difference. The feature I talked about is more simply than this one.
I just want to block the outgoing traffic other than limiting the bandwidth should need you to adjust the threshold.
