Little Snitch Mini 4+
Enjoy your privacy!
- Offers In-App Purchases
As soon as you’re connected to the Internet, your apps can send whatever they want to wherever they want, unnoticed by you, because all of this happens invisibly under the hood.
Little Snitch Mini makes these network connections visible and puts you back in the driver’s seat!
It’s a lightweight, unobtrusive but yet incredibly powerful network monitoring and firewall tool, allowing you to conveniently watch and analyze all Internet connections made by your apps, and conveniently block unwanted ones with a single mouse click.
It provides exciting insights into the network activity of your computer and shows detailed connection information of all apps and system processes.
Enjoy easy to understand real-time diagrams of network traffic, an animated map view to identify connections into various countries, a traffic history with statistics information about previous connections over the past twelve months, and an extremely easy to use blocklist management – just choose from a curated set of blocklists to instantly isolate your computer from thousands of advertising-, tracking-, or malware-sites.
The basic network traffic monitoring functionality, including a real-time connection list, traffic diagrams and the animated map view of worldwide network connections can be used for free.
The full feature set, including blocking of connections, extended traffic history time ranges, advanced display and filtering options and more is available as an in-app purchase.
Improved “Keep Window in Front” option – which was already added in version 1.2 but forgotten to be mentioned in “What’s New”. Oops! This new feature allows you to keep the Little Snitch Mini window in front of all other windows (including windows from other apps), making it easier to watch your computer’s network connections while working in other apps.
This option can be turned on from the menu bar (Window > Keep Window in Front) or by typing the Command-J keyboard shortcut.
# Other Improvements
- Improved handling of expired subscriptions. If the app claims that the subscription has expired, but you disagree because you are confident that it hasn’t – please click the “Restore Purchase” button in Settings > Premium to resolve the issue.
- Added a few missing French localizations.
Ratings and Reviews
A Must Have Application
A must have application, allowing users to understand and manage data transfers that otherwise go unnoticed. Such details allows you the ability to make educated security enforcement decisions, such as blokcing an applications attempt to log and transfer user behaviors which can then be monetized by the associated company.
Terrible support, paid for yearly subscription that doesn't work
The app is great when it works. I paid for a yearly subscription via apple. Little snitch doesn't recognize it, and keeps asking me to purchase it again. Tried restoring the purchase, reinstalling.. nothing.
Support is only via email/twiter/mastodon. You write to them, you get answers in days.. 10 days now and counting and no response. Apple tells you, contact the app developer....
Its a pitty, the sofware is useful, and it blocks quite a lot of undersirable stuff that even the firewall lets through.
Developer Response ,
Sorry for your hassles. We’ve addressed the ”Restore Purchase” issue in version 1.2.1, so it should now work as expected.
To me, this is an absolute necessity.
I simply want to know where in the world my data is sent to and this app does the task flawlessly, thank you so much guys.
However, I am curious if the functionality of the "Map" here is comparable to that of "Little Snitch."
Am I Wrong?
