Yes, if that is what it is. Reef Cleaners is one of the only places you can buy these and they are out of stock at the moment.

Can you get a little clearer picture for a more positive Id?

if its a cowrie, if you poke it, the outer protective mantle will retract inside the shell. I have a few in my tank and they are great cleaners (if thats what yours is). they only come out at night mostly.

Definitely a cowrie of some kind - any chance you could get closer up (but still clear) pics with it under some brighter white light (such as by shining a flashlight on it, for example)?

So it is reef safe? I google it some of them are eating coral..
I don't know - I honestly can't find any reliable sources on their diet (one says they eat algae, but it seems they may be scavengers and/or opportunistic predators of sessile inverts too).

tiger cowries may eat some coral. google Tiger Cowrie so you can see a picture and compare it to what you have.
Already google it and see some comparison. It seem not like tiger cowrie. For now it just stick to the glass and eat the algae. Will monitor it, thank you sir
