But that protects your private data from being shipped out? Small Snitch does!
Little Snitch informs you if a program tries to establish an outgoing online connection. After that you can decide to allow or deny this link, or define a principle how to take care of future connection attempts. This prevents personal data from being sent out without your knowing. Little Snitch for Mac runs inconspicuously in the background and it can also detect network associated activity of viruses, trojans and other malware.
Silent Mode -- Decide Later
There are times in which you don't want to get interrupted by any network related alarms. With Silent Mode you can quickly choose to silence all connection warnings for a while. You may then afterwards review the Quiet Mode Log to specify permanent guidelines for connection attempts that happened during that time.
Have you ever thought about why a process you have never heard of before suddenly wishes to link to some server on the Internet? The Research Assistant helps you to obtain the answer. It just takes one click on the study button to anonymously request extra information for the current link from the Research Assistant Database.
Automatic Profile Switching
Rules can be arranged in various profiles such as"Home","Office" or"Mobile Internet". This permits you to use different sets of filter rules based on the network you are currently connected to. Profiles may be activated either manually in the menu, or mechanically, whenever you connect a system that is associated with one of your preferences.
Firewall for incoming connections
Little Snitch not only reveals any incoming network connection attempt to be certain that sensitive data does not depart from your computer without your consent. The firewall in Little Snitch provides you with the exact same amount of control for incoming connections.
