Thank you for a nifty application. I’ve tried to read the suggestions, and with mine below I could have missed some of them, I apologize in advance for duplicating. I really hope that you implement most of them, as they are definitively needed for this app to be more complete.

Here are my suggestions:

  • Option to mass delete and mass edit rules by multiselection
    It is very tedious to have to click and delete rules one by one. I guess this is a highly requested feature, but I’d like to mention it again. The fact that this is missing is a major problem and time-stealer for many of us.
  • Grouping feature
    Would be nice to allow us to construct parent rules with options to set what time of day, which interface can be used for traffic and maybe create parent rules that can hold application rules for a set amount of times before it is discarded (like temporary rules). Groups could also be profile specific, and with the possibility to copy or move them between profiles in a nice profile management UI.
  • Temporary rules
    I don’t understand why this hasn’t been implemented yet. When a new app is detected outbound, it should be possible to allow this app only temporary (1 minute, 10 hours, 1 month etc.).
  • Export rulesets/groups or profiles to xml or json or directly to other remote clients.
    This would save us valuable time when we are defining rules, groups or profiles for hundreds of devices that are supposed to have the same rules, but not always all other settings.
  • Allow through specific interface only, or through multiple interfaces as is available.
    It’s like with groups above, if I want certain apps to only be allowed through LAN, and others only through WiFi (Or other interfaces), there should be options to do manage these things.
  • End-to-end encrypted management connection to mobile device.
    It would be awesome to control my devices from my phone, or set up notifications on specific types of events that will allow me to take action when I’m not in the office. For instance, if I need to allow some application to perform an update when it tries to go outbound. I could allow it to do this through the mobile app.
  • Granular app specific rules
    Option to block only certain hosts or IP’s an app is allowed to access and an option to allow certain hosts or IPs an app is allowed to access only at specific times, and through specific interfaces.
  • Implement syslog reporting
    I’d love to integrate my notifications elsewhere, instead of the amount that is displayed on windows desktop.
  • A long shot, but API features
    Would be awesome to integrate management of Glasswire through already established software in my ecosystem. Either by directly controlling them through an API, or at least through command line tools.
  • GIS features
    Others have mentioned Little Snitch 4 and it’s GIS implementations. I think this is a nice feature for UI fans. But it would be awesome to also have options like the API to extract this information elsewhere. And by implementing GIS, you could expose this data through internal end-points as well as providing us with ways to combine them or have them displayed elsewhere (like a wall monitor).

Lastly, thank you for your continued support to the security community!

I would like to be able to turn On/Off the firewall in one step, by right clicking on the Glasswire Toolbar Icon, and select Firewall On/Off from the list of options.

Currently, to Stop/Start the firewall I have to right click Glasswire Toolbar Icon > left click Show/Hide Glasswire > left click Firewall On/OFF

Change the tray icon menu item from “Deactivate Glasswire” to “Deactivate License.”

Change the dialogue text:
Are you sure you want to deactivate your license?
You can use your key again to reactivate your license by selecting Activate License in the menu.

Add:
Continuing to use Glasswire unlicensed… explain that. (As GW doesn’t shut down, but restarts.)

My cousin’s sister’s brother heard about some one accidentally deactivating GW thinking it had to do with fully deactivating, temporarily, GW’s exes and service, above and beyond that evoked by Exit.

It’s easy to miss that one reference to “key” and/or not associate it with blowing away the currently running license.

I would like an option to sniff dump of traffic per a selected application. So that it can later be viewed in Wireshark.

That is an interesting suggestion!

Welcome aboard Frank22222!

I’d like the GlassWire to show the Internet speed (download and upload) on the taskbar, just like:

Hi Everyone, like to put forward the following feature requests:

  1. Ability to import block lists, from blocklist.site or DBL.oisd.nl for instance.
  2. Can we get a home gateway edition of Glasswire. Would love to see Glasswire running on something like this: tinyurl (dot) com/y4b78vpf, Fitlet2 from TinyGreenPC
  3. Can Glasswire implement uservoice/userreponse for feedback/feature requests/helpdesk

Cheers

With an option to update manual if preferred by the user.

I can understand and sympathise with the tone here, but I have not become that frustrated. (yet)
That said, I agree with the majority of these feature requests and can see the sense in this approach.

I don’t understand why you’re writing this. I can download it from the site but it’s not the same.

Some people like to be in control of updates and know when they are happening and so that it does not interfere with downloads/uploads etc.

Still waiting for port monitoring for windows feature

Just a small but potentially very useful feature: I like to have the Mini Viewer permanently visible to monitor my connection usage. But it’s very hard to find a place on the screen where it doesn’t obstruct anything important.

It would be great if the Mini Viewer could set opacity to 0 % (may be configurable but not necessary) on mouse hover, possible with some modifier key pressed (like Ctrl, Shift, etc.) so it doesn’t conflict with other on-hover features (settings and close button, window resizing, etc.). The whole feature may be configurable (a checkbox).

@ferenczy

Maybe I’m misunderstanding, but if you mouse over the mini viewer and click the little settings icon at the top right you can set transparency. Please try it.
