Suggestion for Things Section

After scanning the subnet and returning all responding devices could there be the ability to port scan any individual devices returned. I found an unknown device (was my PFSense firewall) and wanted to scan the ports to determine what the device might be (in this case I knew it was the firewall because it had the gateway IP). I would probably pull up a command prompt and run Nmap but thought it would be nice to have a built-in port scan to utilize.

Thanks for having an amazing product will be recommending to everyone I know…

Thanks for your feedback. I’ll share this with our team.

Our next update will have major Things improvements, but no scanning on that version yet. It will have additional info though that should help you find out what the device is without scanning (hopefully).

Excellent idea from ColonelNeeko. I would also suggest that when a user adds a label (such as “printer” or “cellphone”) to a “Thing” that GlassWire refer to this label when Glasswire refers to that “Thing” in a subsequent alert, etc…

I have 5 or 6 devices in things, one of them is labeled New Modem and another one labeled Old Modem.I would like to get rid of the one that is labeled Old Modem because it is no long being used. How do I get rid of it? Here’s a Screen Shot of what I’m talking about. Hope it helps.


The old modem is completely offline, yet it still appears? Sounds like a bug.

Our next update will have huge “Things” improvements, so please be on the lookout.

Batpup, silly question, i take it you did a new “Scan” which should re-fresh the list of devices.

BTW. Ken i would like to see “Things” Re-named to IoT Thanks…

I have rescanned and it will not get rid of it. I also have Things set to scan every 60 seconds because I have devices that connect off and on. But this Old modem is not disappearing and not even connected! Weird! I have a suspicion that there is something else connecting to my computer that I am not aware of. I’m going to look into it and let you know what I find. Hmmm! :smiley:

Thank you Ken Glasswire!
