GlassWire allows you to instantly see which apps are wasting your data, acting suspiciously, slowing your phone’s Internet speed, or causing you to go over your carrier data limits. GlassWire makes it easy to keep track of your mobile carrier data usage and WiFi Internet activity.
- See a live graph of what apps are currently using your carrier data, or slowing your Internet connection.
- Instantly know every time a new app accesses the network and begins using your data.
- Go back in time with GlassWire’s graph to see what apps wasted your data earlier in the week or month.
- GlassWire’s data alerts help keep you under your data limit. Get alerted before you reach your carrier data limit to avoid costly overage fees.
- GlassWire reveals unusual network activity from unknown apps or malware that could be violating your privacy or spying on you.
- GlassWire counts your mobile carrier data (Edge, 3G, 46, 5G, LTE, CDMA, UMTS, GSM, GPRS, mobile hotspots) and shows you detailed usage statistics on GlassWire’s "Usage" screen, along with your WiFi data. See your mobile phone provider data for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-mobile, Virgin, Vodafone, Orange, EE, 3, Swisscom, Telia, Movistar, O2, and all others.

The devs behind GlassWire wanted an easy way to see which Android apps were using all our expensive mobile data, slowing our Internet connection, or behaving suspiciously.
Their company already makes a popular GlassWire application for Windows that helps people protect their PCs from online threats by visualising their network activity. They wanted a similar network monitoring application for Android phones but say they were shocked to find a lot of the data usage apps they tested sent quite a bit of data over the network themselves.
They wondered why these apps that claimed to help people stay under their data limits would send network data themselves.
Why do many free "Data Usage" apps use data themselves?
They discovered a lot of these free data usage collection apps exist solely to collect your personal app usage data to sell to advertisers or other app developers. They did not want to use a data usage app that was logging details about every app they use to share it with third parties. In which database was your private app usage data being stored, and what if that database was hacked or made public? To make matters worse, they found that at least one of these applications collected personally identifiable information.
Is your current “Data Usage” app tracking you?
GlassWire is a data usage app that helps protect your privacy. Your GlassWire data usage and app usage information never leaves your phone. They could not see or access your app usage even if they wanted to.
How can they improve?
