GlassWire keeps blocking apps its not supposed to block. I switched from “Ask To Connect” to “Click To Block” because I noticed that GlassWire simply blocks apps that start prior to GlassWire itself. I usually start Spotify first, thus my Spotify never had internet connection and appeared on the list of blocked apps within GlassWire. Removing it from that list didn’t fix things, I had to manually grant internet access via Windows Firewall.
Now with Click To Block, things have been better, but lately it’s been an issue again. Apps like Spotify and Netflix for Windows are reporting no active internet connection. Yesterday I added both apps to my Windows Firewall and granted access, today those entries are gone again. Restoring Windows Firewall defaults has not solved the issue either.
Sadly this prevents me from using the GlassWire firewall any further until there’s a working fix. My GlassWire is always up2date, currently running GlassWire Elite 2.2.241 on Windows 10 Pro N 2004 (Build 19041.508). This issue has been around for both various GlassWire and Windows versions.
