"Total disappointment."

May 14, 2011  |  By keitdevincy

 |  Version: Little Snitch 2.3.6

Pros

It may let you know what websites are tracking you on the internet, but at the expense of losing the function of your computer for other tasks.

Cons

The program severely and significantly degrades the processing power of the CPU on my Power PC iMac.

Summary

Not worth the hassle. Too big a sacrifice for the results.

"Useful utility."

May 05, 2011  |  By billhilton--2008

 |  Version: Little Snitch 2.3.6

Pros

Interface is good, simple and effective.

Cons

Doesn't wash the dishes. Actually I cannot think of any.

Summary

LS is a useful utility for adding security to a Mac. It is a good product. It isn't a product to get excited about.

"indispensable utility"

May 01, 2011  |  By fredlave

 |  Version: Little Snitch 2.3.6

Pros

runs silently in the background until a program tries to dial out, then it pops up with an alert that allows you to allow the call, always allow the call or deny this call or deny it forever. Great. Nothing else like it.

Cons

None noted after using LS for a few years.

Summary

Indispensable, unique utility.
