A firewall protects your computer against unwanted guests from the Internet. But who protects your private data from being sent out? Little Snitch does!
As soon as youÆre 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
donÆt. Little Snitch allows you to intercept these unwanted connection attempts,
and lets you decide how to proceed.
Little Snitch informs you whenever a program attempts to establish an outgoing
Internet connection. You can then choose to allow or deny this connection, or
define a rule how to handle similar, future connection attempts. This reliably
prevents private data from being sent out without your knowledge. Little Snitch
runs inconspicuously in the background and it can also detect network related
activity of viruses, trojans and other malware.
