BEST I COULD DO WAS “PC ON MY LOCAL NETWORK AND PC FROM INTERNET
It won't let you turn it off? This is a big problem. I haven't found why you wouldn't be able to disable this (turn it off), or at least change it to PCs on my local network.
The option it's currently on allows YOUR computer to be used by computers on the internet to update their files. This means that your data can be used to updates other peoples' computers. This is REALLY bad.
I hope you can find a way to at least change it to PCs on my local network. At least that way it would only be YOUR computers. Otherwise your data could be consumed very quickly.
That's great, and thank goodness! That could have been a real data chewer. Hopefully what you've now done, and had already done, will help to save some data, and possibly even a considerable amount.
Glasswire will monitor the data now and you should be able to look at it within a few days and see if anything is looking like it's a high data user, and whether what is can be changed or just not used.
Again, I'm not very familiar with Apple products, but I hope that when your iPad is off it is truly off and not downloading updates or connecting to the iCloud. I have no clue as to whether someone has to set up the iCloud or if it is automatically on from the outset. Time will tell. At least with Glasswire being on the computer(s) you will be able to tell, by process of elimination, what is using an excessive amount of data if something does and it's not the computers.
If you still end up seeing high data usage, most definitely say so, we will try to figure out what's going on.
I had to look below to see what changes to Glasswire you were referring to. Those are good ideas.
Have a good evening and get some rest.
