    I also upgraded to Elite with a recent offer ... TH, hope you are correct that existing licenses are still Lifetime - where can you confirm that? I don't see anything specific under 'About'.

    I received a response from support:

    Where can I download the free version of Glasswire?
    Answer - Our software has a 7 day free trial at www.glasswire.com

    I suppose this answers why I can't get anything to work without showing an offer to upgrade.

    Are lifetime subscriptions still available to purchase?
    Answer - We no longer offer lifetime options...


    There was no mention of existing lifetime licenses.

    From the FAQ: https://www.glasswire.com/faq/

    So the firewall functionality has been removed from the free version with v2.0, and you just get a free network monitor after the trial expires.

    Glad I grabbed the lifetime deal before they went all subscription with the v2.0 release! :)

    39, 69 and 99 dollars per year? That is quite overpriced.

    $39 for the Basic plan wouldn't be too bad if that covered 2 PCs. But I agree that the 3 PC Pro plan is too steep at $69 per year. And I cannot imagine an individual really needing the 10 PC Elite plan, unless they are a support professional, in which case it could probably be charged off as a business expense.

    Agree. This new pricing model won't work for them.

    Even $19 for 1, and $39 for up to 3 would generate more revenue.

    It's very useful, but not $69/year useful, LOL!!! I think many would like to be able to at least cover one desktop + one laptop with the same license ...

    Hopefully they will figure that out. It's still all new to them.

    What a bunch of (^%$.
    Asking to upgrade to "elite" WTF?
    Already said it was a spy, now a money vacuum.
    Good luck with your pretty program. Beauty will cost Man or machine.

    Should have figured GW so closely knit with FB/Google and Twitt's o_Oo_O

    So called, Life-time license.

    Bizarre post there mate.... Not quite sure what flavour of Malt, Barley, Hops or Psilocybin you had with your Corn Flakes this morning.

    I’m happy to admit that I’m a victim of this overpriced product.

    It gave me too much of a flashback of my once loved Sygate Firewall.

    I can afford the cost, which is around the same as my subscription to Malwarebytes, but would like an option to buy it outright as is.

    As I no longer participate in Win 10 or Win 8.1 updates, it is the perfect companion to Malwarebytes, Sandboxie and backups with Macrium Reflect; as I’m now on my own…
