Re: Stop recording browsing history!

Sorry, we don't have a solution for this problem yet. Currently your only option is to regularly delete Safari from the list (Cmd-Delete) or to disable Network Monitor completely.

Re: Mac doesn't start after installing Little Snitch 4.0.5

I had this issue after installing LS on a brand new iMac. Not even the developers of LS seem to be immune to this type of issue... It took me several hours to find out what's going on. Here's the solution (and explanation) in short: When Little Snitch's kernel extension is installed, a new kernel mu...

Re: Research Assisitant

You share connection information ONLY when you click a button to explicitly request data from our server. Information shown immediately (without additional user interaction) is stored locally, nothing is sent over Internet.

Re: Lost connection to Daemon after Screen saver

When the connection to the daemon is lost, this usually means that the daemon has crashed. You should have a crash report in Console.app > System Reports (left sidebar of the console window) for Little Snitch Daemon. Can you please mail us the crash report(s) to the support address? If you have no c...

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

I agree that there should be better control over the data available in Network Monitor. I can't promise a time frame, though. But we are aware of the problem. Regarding PII, PHI and GDPR: These are about data related to persons. Network Monitor stores connection information. All this info is about t...

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

You might have been using version 3 then. Version 3 did not persist connection history over restarts.

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

There is no alternative location of the connections cache.It's in the same directory as configuration.user.xpl. If there is no such file, connections cannot be persisted.

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

The "~" represents your home directory. Sorry for the confusion. Finder hides the "Library" directory in your home. You can open it in a Terminal window with the command

open ~/Library

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

You CAN delete the history. Just select all connections in Network Monitor and press Cmd-Delete or right-click them and choose "Delete". The database is in ~/Library/Application Support/Little Snitch/ConnectionsCache.sqlite. If you want to delete the file, please turn off Network Monitor w...

Re: Can't block incoming connections?

I've looked as your screen shot and it does not show the "any owner" icon for the rule. This means that it affects processes owned by you only. The owner pop-up is right to the "Any Process" selection in the rule inspector.

Re: Can't block incoming connections?

You are denying port 22 for your own processes only, not for system processes. Ssh runs as system process. Double-click the rule and change the process owner in the pop-up right to the process name.

Regards, Christian.

Re: mDNSResponder automatically denied incoming connections

Ah, sorry, a mistake. The rule should be

action: allow
direction: incoming
priority: regular
process: /usr/sbin/mDNSResponder
owner: system
destination: any
port: any
protocol: any

The owner must be "system" because mDNSResponder runs as system user. Sorry for the error!

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

I can see your issues here. Network Monitor always stored all connections. In version 3, the list was lost on restart of Network Monitor, now it is persisted in an encrypted database. When you remove an app from the list with Cmd-Delete, all PAST history is deleted. When the app continues communicat...

Re: Little snitch started blocking all traffic

I think we get closer to the cause of the problem. When you restore from a clone, Little Snitch notices that the configuration was changed. Since such a change may be done by a malicious program, it asks the user for confirmation. Until the change is confirmed, factory rules are in effect. Little Sn...
