"I don't understand how to use this...."

February 11, 2012  |  By Ensatina

 |  Version: Little Snitch 2.4.4

Pros

don't know yet, can't figure it out.

Cons

I don't know how to tell if I need to deny something. I denied one item and then I couldn't do a google search... so went back and allowed it to go through - then I was fine. I got this because I inadvertently clicked on a facebook link from someone whose account was hijacked and later got a message from google that said "We're sorry... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries." I thought that might have had something to do with the Facebook issue and thought littlesnitch might help me with that, but I tried the same search after installing little snitch and still got the same message from google. oh well.

Summary

I'm only giving it one star and only because I have to in order to post this. Littlesnich could be great, I have no idea because I don't know how to use it. They shouldn't assume everyone understands how to use the product.

"Know who is being contacted by your computer!"

October 20, 2011  |  By jmumaugh

 |  Version: Little Snitch 2.4.4

Pros

Little Snitch works in the background. You do train it to know what you will allow but that is not a difficult chore.

Cons

I would like to know what was planned to send out but when I asked about that, it was pointed out that it was probably coded anyway and I still wouldn't know was was being sent. I think the company that makes Little Snitch were correct.

Summary

This is an excellent program and well worth the price.
