    Compatibility Question before Purchase


    Running Kaspersky Internet Security. Happy with it.
    Thinking of running GlassWire as well as a nicely informative network monitor without activating its firewall (an option).

    https://www.glasswire.com/

    Are they compatible?

    Thanks

    Well both have a Firewall, as you suggest not to use feature in Glasswire then https://forum.glasswire.com/t/glasswire-kis/1155

    Thanks for the reply and link. Noticed this comment:

    "GlassWire may not work very well with some Kaspersky versions because Kaspersky sometimes runs all your network activity through itself so in that case the GlassWire graph will look strange or incorrect. Some people do like to use GlassWire with Kaspersky so it's possible to do so, but some of GlassWire's blocking functionality may be lost."

    Will see what happens.

    Your welcome, googling always be first resource to question like that.
    True since KIS is already internet security suite will conflict with similar software or even another firewall or Anti-Virus as most will do.
    Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is something may not interfere, but not exactly same idea as one mentioned https://www.malwarebytes.org/antiexploit/

    I have checked a Glasswire community information and found this:

    "Some of our development team uses Kaspersky. We tested carefully with Kaspersky and the problem doesn't seem to be related to that, but I'm not sure about the details." - from Servo_GlassWire

    I'd rather stay with Kaspersky only for now or switch to other security software like Glasswire, Malwarebytes or Trend Micro.

    As said many times will be conflictions with 2 security software's. What exactly were you looking for with using Glasswire to do for you ? Did say wanted to use Glasswire and if it would work with KIS now saying you do not. I mentioned Malware Anti-Exploit which is not like Malwarebytes free version or real time premium version, just protects browsers.
