Your Firewall provides protection against unwanted access from the Internet. Little Snitch gives you control over your private outgoing data, so you can have control over your privacy.
With Little Snitch you can track your background activity. As soon as your computer connects to the Internet, applications will often have permission to send any information wherever they need to. Little Snitch is aware of this activity and asks you to decide what you want to happen with this data.
KEY FEATURES INCLUDE:
- Control your network. You have full control over whether or not to allow or deny connections. You can also define a rule for handling similar, future connection attempts.
- Silent protection. The Little Snitch application runs inconspicuously in the background and it can even detect network-related activity of viruses, trojans, and other threats to your privacy.
Requirements: OS X 10.6.8 or later.
Improved performance of launching Little Snitch components with large rule sets.
A connection alert will now point out if it is shown due to a contradiction between two rules about whether a connection should be allowed or denied. This can happen when Little Snitch cannot determine the hostname for a connection and therefore only has an IP address available. Then, if there are two rules with contradictory actions that match that IP address (e.g. allow connections to foo.example.com and deny connections to bar.example.com, both hostnames resolve to the same IP address), Little Snitch shows a connection alert asking what should be done.
Fixed an issue where Little Snitch Agent could crash after wake from sleep.
Fixed rules not becoming active and operation mode not being switched when deactivating a profile. Activating a profile or switching from one profile to another worked, though.
Fixed an issue where the connection alert showed an internal error when a running application was replaced on disk without restarting afterwards. This can happen for apps that update themselves while running.
Fixed an issue where no connection alerts were shown for connections established by the kernel itself.
Fixed issues with Java apps that would cause problems with code signature checks and incorrect app icons and process paths to be shown.
Fixed an issue in Little Snitch Configuration’s rule inspector where selecting “Any Port” or “Any Protocol” from the drop down menu did not work.
Corrected the number of ticks for the “Capacity” slider in the preferences for Little Snitch Network Monitor.
