A GlassWire Major Update is on the way


One of the coolest GlassWire features is our network time machine that allows you to go back in time to see your network activity in the past, then drill down into the details to see what apps and hosts your PC was communicating with at that specific point in time.  Our network time machine feature is awesome but it also uses a significant amount of memory for some Windows users who have enormous amounts of network connections.  For example some heavy BitTorrent users have reported to us that GlassWire uses more memory than they would like.

To combat this problem we had to rewrite some major parts of GlassWire from scratch.  This rewrite took many long months of hard work, but now that we have done this hard work GlassWire should use significantly less resources for everyone in the future.

We hope to release this update before the month is out and we’ll announce it when it’s live on the GlassWire Blog, plus we’ll put out a download update through GlassWire itself when it’s ready.  Be on the lookout for this major update!

Your Friends, The GlassWire Team


Microsoft’s best kept security secret – EMET


Did you know Microsoft has a free downloadable tool available that can increase the security of Windows significantly?  Most people don’t know, but Microsoft’s EMET (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit) is a freeware security toolkit that’s made to help add an extra layer of safety for system admins.  You aren’t an admin?  That’s OK, you can still use EMET to help protect your PC from unknown types of viruses and malware and it costs nothing.

On February 3rd Microsoft released an update for EMET that adds support for Windows 10 so now’s a good time to give it a try.  You can download EMET directly from Microsoft then check out this helpful Howtogeek guide to learn how to easily set it up and use it.  Another great thing about EMET is how it works great with GlassWire.

Try EMET and post about your experiences in the GlassWire Forum.
