Re: Little Snitch Feature Request

I have the same thing as JDBoer: always having to click away 3 requests from Chrome when I open the lid of my laptop, becuase I tries to connect to random gibberish domains to test for capture. It can't be disabled in Chrome settings. Chromium does seem to behave, so perhaps using that is an option?

Re: Request: Built-in Whois

This is what Hands Off does.

And I totally agree I want that feature on Little Snitch so badly. It's the only reason I use Hands-Off; I want to block access to domains, not to IP addresses.

Re: How to use Little Snitch?

Still, I think Little Snitch would become 10x more valuable and usable if it incorporated some way for the community to together decide on which things to allow and which not to. This is not a strange idea. Take for example the blacklists of dubious advertising/tracking domains that are created for ...

CIA mentions Little Snits in leaked documents

Apparenty they try to circumvent the detectionof their malware's communication by pretending that it's browser traffic.

If there any way for Little Snitch to respond to this?

Re: Which processes to allow, and not allow?

I discovered Little Snitch when I was on a quest to reduce online tracking. To set up Little Snitch it took two weeks of: - Just a whole lot of searching online. For that In the first week I used another browser that I hadn't locked down as much as I had locked down Chrome, which was my main goal. -...

Re: Snitch blocks IP's instead of domains?

From the help: "Little Snitch’s filter engine is implemented in the operating system’s kernel. It works on Internet addresses (IP addresses), not hostnames. When a connection is attempted, Little Snitch only receives the numeric IP address, not the hostname. Since we want to present a meaningfu...

Re: Snitch blocks IP's instead of domains?

OK, I an answer my own question now: First of all, my question was a bit vague. I didn't understand the difference between domains and hostnames. And I should have used "URLs" instead of "domains" in the title of this question. What I want control over is which (sub)domains are a...

Snitch blocks IP's instead of domains?

After playing around with Little Snitch for a bit, and trying to tame Chrome, I sometimes don't understand what is going on. Am I correct in my understanding here: When I block access to "google-analytics.com" over port 433, my expectation is that other websites that later try to access a ...

A couple of feature requests

I have bough Little Snitch today, what a fantastic and fascinating program! I've been able to track down some dubious programs, and even deduce that I had a dodgy browser plugin. You guys rock! I do have some things I was hoping for, didn't understand, or think could be useful that I thought I'd sha...
