Using Glasswire as firewall device



Can I install this software on a dual ( or single ) NIC PC and run it as a firewall so I can route all traffic through it for visibility, but also be able to block anything my kids can get to?

I dont want to put the software on the kids PCs or ipads.


GlassWire appears to work for at least some users running attached devices, e.g. those who have complained that GlassWire treats the usages all as one computer.

  • Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
  • WiFi hotspots
  • tethered devices.

Others have said ICS didn’t work but maybe they never restarted their computer!? Anyway, the GlassWire team may respond with a more definitive answer.

Here’s a couple of relevant topics where this has been discussed:
