Block only selected hosts for an app


#21

Wow, this request is 3,5 years old and it seems that feature won’t make it into a release any time soon although it’s one of the most popular request. That’s really sad to read.

Also, the arguments against having that are invalid. You can block cdn’s and you can block update servers or whatever. I am doing this very successfully on a Mac, but I will be switching to Windows in 2 months and without that feature I can’t use Glasswire.

Any feedback on that feature and a rough time schedule would be appreciated.

After just playing around with Glasswire in a virtual machine I found it pretty useless. Especially when you set the Firewall to “Ask” and deny one connection it will just block the whole app. That is pitiful and too high level for a blown up app like Glasswire. You have nice graphs, but unfortunately a lot of useless functionality. I saw some gvt1 dot com traffic popping up directly after installing a virtual machine. A lot of applications had their first connection by then and I was not able to find the domain after that. It’s such a shame nobody cloned Little Snitch for windows. Even without that geographical overview stuff it would be perfect if it just had app/host/ip control, nothing more.

Topic timeline mentions 2019 where it should be 2018.

Can you update your users (I’m paying for the software) about that development long promissed ? (blocking IPs). I more and more realize pieces of software are issuing outbound traffice which seems to be only for statistical purpose for the seller, nothing relevant for me, the user and I must be the one choosing the traffic that I want to allow.

Alternatively can Windows firewall be modified manually when Glasswire is used as its pilot ?

Great app with a beautiful UI, seemed like a great alternative to Little Snitch, but is missing this absolutely essential functionality. I was going to buy it until I realized this was missing.

Es algo que también estaba pensando desde hace varios días xD, veo que a la gente le gusta la idea. así que espero que la implementen.
