GlassWire is detected as trojan (false positive, solved)

I’ve just installed free version of GlassWire on Windows 10 - and system shows me a message like this program is a kind of trojan. Are there some mistakes in the code or something?


GlassWire is not a trojan. Please go to our top left menu and choose “About” and let me know what version of GlassWire you have.

Please also email us a screenshot or let us know exactly what it says.

One other question, are you in “Ask to connect” mode?

Yeah, I’m in “Ask to connect” mode, as I see now, thanks for a tip. I have GlassWire Elite 2.1.152. Windows says to me “We have detected a trojan virus” every time I run GlassWire, I fell a little embarassed…


This is a known issue with that version to have a false positive (no, GlassWire is not a trojan of course).

“Fixed a bug that could cause a Windows Defender false positive Trojan:Win32/BlockMsav.A!reg. If you are experiencing this issue please be sure you’re using our latest software.”

Upgrade to our latest software to solve it.
