Thanks for posting. No, we do not spy on anyone and never have, and never will.
Your network activity never leaves your device at all for Windows or Android, so we could not see it even if we wanted to, even under court order!
It’s also funny that the post says GlassWire does not show its own network activity, when it does and always has. This is also mentioned in our FAQ that GlassWire checks for updates and updates its suspicious host list. You can check your firewall yourself to see and you can also make GlassWire block itself.
Unfortunately there actually are many apps that actually do collect all your network activity though. Just check their privacy policies. You should especially check out other “Data Usage” apps on Google Play and read their privacy policies to learn why they are ‘free’.
Another funny thing is that the Reddit post calls ManyCam part of the NSA. ManyCam is a virtual webcam software you can see here https://manycam.com/. Some of our team members worked on ManyCam before and we’re proud of our work. Many major entities like Stanford University, NASA, and many others used ManyCam. None of our team works on ManyCam currently though.
Download and use it yourself, there is nothing sinister or scary about it unless you think this is scary? I’m not sure what the NSA needs with webcam effects but I hope they enjoy our cat faces.
We’re also proud of our work on GlassWire and we love working on this project! We also know that many malware and spyware developers do hate our software, because we reveal their hidden network activity.
We’ll keep working hard to help protect privacy and PCs or others, and we’ll continue to donate to the EFF as an organizational member.
We understand that GlassWire tends to attract people that are paranoid about privacy. We’re paranoid ourselves and that’s why we built GlassWire.
