Little Snitch
« on: November 29, 2016, 09:42:32 PM »
Any OSX User needs this :

 A firewall protects your computer against unwanted guests from
the Internet. But who protects your private data from being sent out?

Little Snitch protects your privacy!

As soon as you’re connected to the Internet, applications can potentially send whatever information they want to wherever they want. Sometimes they do this for good reason, on your explicit request. But often they don’t.

Little Snitch intercepts these unwanted connection attempts,
and lets you decide how to proceed.

This post is borderline removably brief.

Please tell us some more about WHY you recommend this tool. Have you even used it before? What kinds of threats does this address?

We need a little more than "Check this out" and a link to yet another tool...

I do use it, and just to be clear I am in no way affiliated with this tool.

It's simply an application-based network monitor, shows what app is trying to connect to where and allows you to create rules based on profiles

I find it to be very clean / nice utility.

Very nice, at one point I had something similar to this on my iphone (jailbreak app called ifirewall).  It was quite revealing to see what all tries to go out to the net and or phone home for whatever reason.

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.
