Objective Development has released Little Snitch 3.1 which brings Automatic Profile Switching to the OS X application that lets you monitor your network and outgoing data.
Little Snitch informs you whenever a program attempts to establish an outgoing Internet connection. You can allow or deny these connections, or define rules to handle future attempts automatically. Little Snitch reliably prevents your private data from being sent out to the Internet without your knowledge.
What’s New In This Version:
● Automatic Profile Switching
This new feature allows you to assign networks (for example your Wi-Fi network at home, a public hotspot, etc.) to certain profiles. Whenever you join one of these networks, Little Snitch detects the network change and switches to the associated profile automatically.
When you join a network for the first time, Little Snitch shows an alert window allowing you to choose the desired profile. Alternatively you can configure a default profile that will be used for all unknown networks.
The mappings between profiles and networks can be reviewed and edited later in Little Snitch Configuration, either in the profiles section of the sidebar, or in the new “Known Networks” window (⇧⌘K).
Automatic Profile Switching is off by default. To use it, it must be enabled in Little Snitch Configuration > Preferences > Automatic Profile Switching.
● In the menu bar item “Silent Mode” and “Start/Stop Network Filter” entries are now hidden if “Allow Preferences Editing” is disabled.
● Improved “Restore Factory Defaults” feature.
● Updated help section to reflect changes mentioned above.
● Fixed a bug which caused a kernel panic in some rare cases.
● Minor other bugfixes and improvements.
Little Snitch can be purchased for $34.95.
