Little Snitch - Advanced network monitoring utility
Review by on
Little Snitch can inform you which applications are trying to connect to the Internet, to which server and much more. The application lets you establish rules, to prevent or allow specific connections, temporarily disable or enable an application's connection and perform many other operations. As a direct result, your Mac, as well as your personal information will be more secure, because no application will be able to establish a connection without your personal approval.

It takes about a minute or two to install Little Snitch and you will have to restart your machine afterwards. The application will work all by itself in the background, at all times, but you can bring up a rich user interface by running its .app file. All processes which have been identified are displayed in a long list, along with green or red dots, to indicate which are allowed or blocked.

When you launch an application and it tries to connect to the Internet for the first time, Little Snitch will react instantly and it will display the address of the server that it attempted to contact, along with options for allowing or denying, permanently or temporarily.

Of course, system-critical processes and services are allowed to connect to the Internet by default, but you can still block them if you want to. Furthermore, you may create new rules yourself, to allow or block specific applications installed on your machine. You can set Little Snitch to block or allow incoming or outgoing connections, for the entire system or for a selected user account and make other fine tweaks.

Pros:
Little Snitch alerts you instantly when an application tries to connect to the Internet. It lets you set up your own rules, which can be permanent or temporary.

Cons:
You may want to take care of your browsers before anything else, because you will have numerous allow/deny prompts when you launch them.

No application on your Mac will be able to communicate with the outside world, without a "yey" or "ney" from Little Snitch.
