I live in a rural area and use a Verizon Jetpack to connect to the Internet. Recently my data use has gone up much more than seems reasonable, and I’ve installed the free version of GlassWire (on a PC running Windows 10) in the hope of understanding why.
The Jetpack is configured to allow only one device at a time, and when I connect to the Internet, the Jetpack shows one connected device – but GlassWire (under the “Network” tab) says there are two.
I have a Wi-Fi-capable backup PC (XP), but it is turned off – not just disconnected, but OFF. I don’t have a smartphone, and my dumb cell phone is also turned off for good measure. GlassWire still says I have two connected devices. Can anyone suggest an explanation?
I understand the paid versions of GlassWire will identify the connected devices, which might let me see what’s going on, but before I spend the money to upgrade, does anyone have any other ideas?
Thanks for your help.
