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.

Protecting your privacy – 20 million users protected!
Our Windows and Android software combined have been downloaded over 20 million times! We make money through sales of our GlassWire for Windows software, not by selling your data to third parties. With GlassWire your data and app usage information never leave your phone. GlassWire will NEVER show you ads or violate your privacy.

Instantly block badly behaving apps with GlassWire’s firewall
Instantly allow or deny new app connections with GlassWire’s new mobile firewall. The Firewall feature is based on a VPN connection (VpnService API) that GlassWire creates to block connections from unwanted applications. GlassWire never uses your personal information for commercial purposes, advertisement, or shares it with third parties.

Supported mobile networks & providers
GlassWire’s data manager features work great with many different mobile data providers and telecoms world-wide including Verizon, T-Mobile, Vodaphone, AT&T, Sprint, Magenta, and Jio. It’s also compatible with 3G, 4G, 5G, Edge, GPRS, Wi-Fi, and most other popular telecommunications networks. GlassWire can also provide you with Internet usage alerts if your Cable, DSL, or Satellite ISP has data caps.

Have used Glasswire for several years and it has always provided a great service. However the Premium subscription fee was taken in January for all the features that are now available for free. You can't say the move to free features wasn't in the works at beginning of the year. May I please get my subscription fee back?

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.

The new update spoilt an extremely good app. The stats were very easy to understand, now they are so difficult to. Plus the 1 minute, 5 minute and 30 minute views were very important, in case you had a sudden spike in your data use or just downloaded something you wanted to check it's real download size. I had to get the old version from apkfun. Things are better now.

Google made real-time monitoring impossible. Details are here Please consider reviewing our app based on what's actually possible with Android if possible. You'll find our old app is inaccurate, delayed, and stops tracking completely if you look at it closely.

What's new

- Removal of the paid “Premium” version.
- Firewall bug fixes.
- Other bug fixes.
