I agree. this is a serious problem. Every browser and other application which connects to a domain will be recorderd FOREVER. You can delete the apps in the monitor (which deletes the log but it could potentially be recovered so that's bad) You guys SHOULD implement a solution. What good is a firewall when it logs things it should not.
You guys are RIGHT! I have thousands of records in the monitor for every site I visited the last few months. That's some crazy shit! I know a firewall should be able to work on application level but recording EVERY domain you visit with EVERY BROWSER is way too much. I tried looking for a solution (like automatic removal of these logs but this feature is non-existent)
As a developer I take my security and privacy very serious. Can someone from Objective respond to this issue!? I urge others who read this to also post in this thread and e-mail them. I think unless we do something nothing will change.
I bought this recently and am quite upset with this issue. Removing a process from the list only works until the program is restarted, so it's not a real solution. Removing individual processes permanently would be an acceptable solution.
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 communicating, it re-appears with the new communication.
We are aware that there is a privacy issue here and we plan to come up with a solution in a future release. However, this solution depends on other changes we need to roll out first.
