About this app

GlassWire is the ultimate data usage monitor for Android! Our app makes it easy to monitor your mobile data usage, data limits, and WiFi network activity.
Instantly see what apps are slowing your phone’s Internet connection or wasting your mobile data.

Key features
• GlassWire’s data alerts keep you under your data limit and save you money on your monthly phone bill. Get alerted before you reach your carrier data limit to avoid overage fees.
• See a graph of which apps are currently using your mobile carrier data or Wi-Fi Internet connection.
• Instantly know every time a new app accesses the network and begins using Wi-Fi or mobile data.
• Swipe right to go back in time to see which apps used mobile data earlier in the week or month. See past Wi-Fi or mobile usage by day or month.
• Go to GlassWire's "Data Plan" screen to set up zero-rated apps that won't have their data usage counted against your data plan. GlassWire can also keep track of roaming, and roll-over minutes. Create a data usage widget.
• Check GlassWire’s Speed Meter on its notification bar to quickly see real-time data usage.
• Help protect your privacy and reveal suspicious app activity through GlassWire’s graph.
• Block apps from connecting to the network, or allow or deny new connections before they start with GlassWire’s mobile firewall. Create multiple firewall profiles, one for mobile and one for WiFi.
• Have an unlimited plan? Unfortunately, most ‘unlimited’ plans will throttle you (slow & limit your connection) once you user a certain amount of data. GlassWire can alert you when you start to get throttled.

I've used this app for several years and it is the best I've found. 😊 For the first year, I used it on a pay-as-you-go data plan and helped me stay within my data limits, with (silent) alarms. But now I have unlimited data and I still use it frequently just to check things out. One can choose to view a month, or a week, or a day, or custom. It's easy to switch between the different granularities.😊 But I wish it also had a 6-minute or live dial/graph like Ookla speed test.🤨 Doug

Functional app that does what it says it does. I set out to look for an app that could accurately keep track of my monthly data usage, and this app does just that. It's very clean and simple, giving a good overview of usage on a per app basis. A suggestion I would make is to declutter the notification shade by using a collapsed silent persistent notification. In it's current state, the app's notification doesn't contain a lot of information, and it seems like it is creating a lot of wasted space

Justin, thanks for the kind review! We often have people ask us about customizing the persistent notification. So many phone companies due weird things with notifications we're really limited on what we can do there without it breaking the notification for many different phone types. Hopefully that will change in the future though and we agree!

Great software. As a refugee from Datally (which can no longer block apps from using mobile data, the entire point of these apps), Glasswire is an almost perfect replacement (although I prefer the "home page" design of Datally.) Yeah, blocking is a paid feature - but if it can prevent your monthly data from being consumed just once, it's already paid for itself.
