    Same here just choose clean install as it's recommended!

    Dan, I didn't do that....so, my settings go back still to April 2017, when I did the original install of Glasswire. ;)

    Yes, I know that...and saw that, and you have posted about it in their forum. ;) Is it worth updating to that beta version?

    Any significant benefit, to do so?

    Yes, but sometimes one can take on too much. Besides, I would have to sign up to their forum. I am sure Glasswire monitor this topic at Wilders. ;)

    Thanks, but I was asking about success of 'over the top' in the sense of NO clean install, in order to leave the settings intact. The installer uninstalls the previous version in either case. I was aware of the recommendation, so that is why I was asking. ;)

    I got a connection to IPv4: 191.235.222.53 as per Glasswire alert, pac100pacprodpacservice.cloudapp.net > PSProfiler

    Glasswire_First Network Activity_07.JPG

    I want to block it, but I see no way to do that using the GUI interface in Glasswire.

    I have found it is related to Panda Security which I have been using, but no longer use at present. I may want to use it again in the future. - https://www.threatcrowd.org/ip.php?ip=191.235.222.53

    I have tried to find out how to block it it Windows Firewall, but have been unsuccessful.

    Just wondering if anybody can give me some advice as to how to block the outward connection.

    P.S. It apparently is a a sub-domain of Microsoft: - https://www.threatcrowd.org/domain.php?domain=pac100pacprodpacservice.cloudapp.net

    Edit: added Post Script

    Overpriced spyware, that looks pretty. Not to trust, to many outbound connections. Wasted my money on this crap.

    Thanks for the warning.

    It might look neat and streamlined but if it's a caller outer like that, no thanks. And this camp certainly doesn't fork out to cater to spyware

    Not sure what you are referring to. Be more specific?

    Does GlassWire connect out and how did you check this?

    From today's logs:

    'Glasswire Control Service' appears to have made a connection to 'activate.glasswire.com' over HTTPS.

    'Glasswire Control Service' also seems to be used by the integrated VirusTotal scan service, also over HTTPS.

    Other than that, and a few connections to 'localhost', that's about it here.

    Probably making a mountain out of a molehill...

    +1. I like the newly integrated VT service, and yeah, 'looks pretty'.

    +1 here. Can see nothing remotely (pardon the pun) GW-related connecting out...so would also appreciate something concrete to support the allegations..
