GlassWire. A Modern Antivirus
An Antivirus with all the features is very "millennial." Friendly interface and lots of features.
Since the last few years, virus protections have become increasingly important. To think that all users keep much vital information on their devices. Private company documents, email accounts, bank accounts, and much more. All that information is stored on your computer.
And hackers know it. There has been a massive increase in attacks and theft of personal information. Hackers may want to extort this information from you or use bank accounts and cards to access it themselves.
With this boom in attacks and viruses, there has been a boom in antivirus programs. These are responsible for detecting all third-party attacks.
But since it is a much-needed demand, many antivirus programs exist.
In this article, we will cover the features of this GlassWire.
And as we said in the introduction, it is a very "millennial" antivirus because it provides you with a lot of information about your computer and Internet connection that someone who does not know much about the Internet, in general, will not understand.
Also, it is a very visual antivirus, providing you with all the information (sometimes too much) at a glance.
The application has five sections:
You can be alerted about various things. From the connection of new devices to your network, when an application connects to a malicious server, and everything you want to modify.
It can scan which devices are connected to your IP to know which ones are using the network. There you can see all the details of the different connected devices.
You can see the amount of incoming and outgoing network usage and capacity. So you can see what consumes more.
This graph has information about your Internet connection. The program detects all events, such as downloads and uploads, and the first connection of programs. You can see which programs are connected and what they did.
This is a very visual way to present all the information in a developed way.
This gives you a list of applications and the network usage of each. The Windows Firewall aids this section. The famous Windows Firewall is still the choice for managing the firewall. From the GlassWire page, you can do all the tasks that Windows Firewall can do, but it has a better interface, which Windows Firewall does not have.
So, let's review its features in a general way—an excellent interface, capable of its best quality, lots of information, and in-depth analysis of viruses. We have a lot of platform customization.
All the information available makes someone who can take advantage of it appreciate this antivirus and its effort to overcome the average of what exists in the market.
It should be noted that the Windows Firewall that comes pre-installed pretty much fulfills the function of maintaining external connections to our computer. So if you are one of those people who want the basics, you don't need to go looking for them anywhere. You already have it!
It should be noted that the free version doesn't offer much. If you want to get the most out of this application, you'll have to pay $40 a year, which can be overpriced if you don't know what you're looking for.
So if you want this, it's because you know what you want.
As for the competition, we have first the native Windows system that performs the vital functions and does it effectively. If you want to protect your computer more comprehensively, you may find the native Windows Defender system insufficient. That's why you'd like to pay for another antivirus.
So in the competition of paid antivirus, we have some like Avast antivirus, or McAfee, which is the one that Windows has been allied with for quite some time to offer you discounts and months of trials. But these antiviruses do not have something that GlassWire does. The amount of information at a quick reach.
This feature makes this antivirus stand out from others—the option of having detailed information with one of the best user interfaces available in the market.
Complete information at a click of a button. You can also access information day by day, so if you have doubts about what happened that day when you entered a page that did not seem safe, you can do it. This is useful if you keep the necessary control over your computer and you know what you are doing.
I find that this is a program that fits a type of profile. If you have knowledge of the Internet and know perfectly well how to handle the use of networks of different pages and applications, this is the application for you.
It is a program that succeeds in a knowledgeable market, which is not only satisfied with knowing that it is automatically rejecting third-party connections.
With this program, you can learn a lot of information arranged in an excellent planned interface—all information at a glance.
The Millennial Antivirus. Modern and complete. For technology lovers.
