How to block a certain host?
We don’t currently offer the ability to block hosts but we’re working on adding this in a future version.

This shouldn’t take more than 2 months, from idea to release.
If the reason this feature is not implemented yet is the ‘no-admin-privileges-needed-ideology’,then, scrap that. Allow me to give GlassWire Full Control of my system, void my warranty, Do whatever, Do something. Be an actual Firewall. Features > no-admin.
I have been looking for this exact feature as well. GlassWire clearly advertises the firewall functionality prominently - the download page states it like this:
Download GlassWire’s firewall & network monitoring software to detect and block threats your antivirus missed.
Clearly, there is emphasis on the security and especially the firewall aspect of GW. I just wish the company’s marketing and development sections were a tad more in tune with each other. The feedback definitely is on the forums.
I find diox8tony’s way of putting it quite fitting - Be an actual Firewall.
