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.

The following updates have been undertaken in this latest version of Little Snitch:

  • Refined some icons to better match the look of OS X Yosemite.
  • When using OS X Mavericks (10.9) or later, Little Snitch Agent, Network Monitor, and Configuration should not cause the discrete GPU (“High Performance GPU”) to be activated anymore, especially on Mid 2010 MacBook Pro.
  • Fixed: In Little Snitch Configuration, when pressing ⌫ while no rule was selected, the last rule was selected.
  • Fixed spontaneous horizontal scrolling of text in the Connection Inspector window of Network Monitor.
  • Fixed: Closing the Connection Inspector window did not preserve its position on screen.

So, if you are concerned about the type of information that leaves your system, then why not give the Little Snitch a try?
