Recommended Posts

Windows 7. Don't want windows firewall, tried WFC (bingsoft) have to insatll netframe 4.6 or greater really slowed down system. Tinywall crashes sometimes and is not updated.

I am talking about a 3rd party stand alone paid for.

Any suggestions?:unsure:

Window firewall notifier has no exe to run in the download, and no instructions how to install.

Glasswire is really not a firewall, but a monitor.

"GLASSWIRE IS NOT A FIREWALL. IT IS A USEFUL "FRONT END" FOR WINDOWS FIREWALL, presenting one alert, logging, clickable allow/block for individual programs and firewall on/off toggle."

Thanks anyways.

Windows Firewall Notifier works pretty well. Other than that, if you want something paid: GlassWire looks quite nice and offers a lot of neat tools if you really want to drill into your application's internet access.

Hello,

my decision was to use Binisoft WFC (no stand-alone firewall). But nevertheless: would Glasswire add some noteworthy security aspects that WFC is missing (besides being able to amass connection data...)?

 

Best Regards,

Peter.

If i had to use a Windows Firewall "extension" to monitor outbound connections, i will use Binisoft WFC (donated version, not the free one), sure it has small bugs, but it is very good in term of rules management, implement safe rules,  block some Microsoft's telemetry, etc...

Politically correct answer.

However (or, nevertheless), no answer to my question...

Hi

Personally I see Glasswire as more as a network and device monitor , and as such an extension software to the windows firewall. I don't see Glasswire add some noteworthy security to your system, not directly at least...
