Not Sure What Little Snitch Does?

Post by beatchic » Sat Feb 16, 2008 12:58 am

Sorry but I am a real computer illiterate:( My husband and I purchased Little Snitch to protect our business information.

So I am unclear of a couple of things.

1. The rules, it allows you to let you computer to reach out to the cyber world so to speak so couldn't people get your data that way?

2. Can I tell if we have been hacked into? And how can we find out?




Thanks in advance

If you want to stay anonymous while interact with the world. I would recommend to use a uk vpn service, or any other vpn according to you country, price and features.
It will mask you IP address and you can stay anonymous. :idea:
