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

    February 11, 2012  |   By Ensatina

    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.

    The problem is this site, a huge jump back if compared with the good old VersionTracker and McUpdate!.
    You are absolutely right that there MUST BE a way to post a 'Troubleshooting'!
    But let me add that Little Snitch is a 'must have' to know who and why wants to send our informations to who and much more that you will learn just by using it

    What sort of idiotic review is this? Read about the program before you install it, and in all honesty if you don't know how to use it it's probably not meant for you. LittleSnitch does exactly what it's supposed to do, and does it in the best way possible.
