Learn about the history of GlassWire.

Thanks for trying GlassWire!

Our team always wanted a network security tool like this, so we created GlassWire. After our team worked for over a year on the project, Jon Hundley posted GlassWire to YCombinator’s Hacker News (a popular site for startups).

The post immediately jumped to the front page of Hacker News with over 1,000 points and over 300 comments! We were excited to see other people found GlassWire useful and our team made the decision to work on the project full time. After the popular Hacker News post, GlassWire was positively reviewed in many publications like PCWorld, Fast Company, LifeHacker, PCMag, Forbes, and many others.

Our team hopes you also find GlassWire useful and we’ll continue to work hard to keep adding features and improvements to the app.
