About Little Snitch 4.0.6 for macOS

​Little Snitch allows you to control your outgoing data on your Mac. As soon as you’re connected to the Internet, applications can potentially send whatever they want to wherever they want. Most often they do this to your benefit. But sometimes, like in case of tracking software, trojans or other malware, they don’t. But you don’t notice anything, because all of this happens invisibly under the hood.

Decide Immediately - Alert Mode

Whenever an app attempts to connect to a server on the Internet, Little Snitch shows a connection alert, allowing you to decide whether to allow or deny the connection. No data is transmitted without your consent. Your decision will be remembered and applied automatically in the future.

Review Later - Silent Mode

If you are new to Little Snitch, you may get overwhelmed by the vast amount of notifications from applications wanting to connect to the Internet. The all-new Silent Mode was re-built from the ground up to make dealing with them a breeze. It lets you silence all notifications for a while, and make all your decisions later, conveniently with just a few clicks, in one go.

A world of network connections

Network Monitor is your window to the world of network connections. View your Mac’s network activity from three perspectives – a list of apps and servers, a web of connections across the globe and a one hour history of data traffic.

Server, where are you?

Ever wanted to know, where in the world your data is sent to? Network Monitor shows the location of all servers your Mac is connected to on an interactive world map. Animated connection lines provide a clear overview of currently transferred data and blocked connections.

What's New

Version 4.0.6:

  • Made Silent Mode actually silent again. Starting in Little Snitch 4.0.5, processes with certain code signature issues caused Connection Alerts to appear even during Silent Mode. These appeared in more situations than we originally intended, though, so we redesigned how this works. Now, no Connection Alerts will appear during Silent Mode (as it was before Little Snitch 4.0.5), but you may see a notification in the top-right corner of the screen about connections being denied due to code signature issues.
Bug Fixes:
  • Improved reliability when handling responses to DNS requests delivered via TCP instead of UDP.
  • When changing the active profile using Little Snitch’s menu bar item while a Connection Alert was shown, the active profile’s name was not updated in the Connection Alert’s profile picker. This works as expected now. Note that the correct profile was used when creating a rule - just the name in the profile picker was not updated.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Connection Alerts to appear that would show no host or domain names, but IP addresses. This could sometimes happen relatively early after starting the computer for a very small number of users.
Internet Access Policy:
  • Little Snitch is now smarter in figuring out what information in your app’s IAP is relevant for a particular connection. This results in more concise and more relevant information being shown to the user. This new behavior is documented here.
  • You can now specify that a connection description should match if and only if the user selects a connection for a whole domain or “any connection”. You can find the documentation for this here.
  • Links in Markdown syntax now render correctly and show the linked URL as their tooltip.

System Requirements
  • Intel, 64-bit processor
  • OS X 10.11 or later
