Welcome to Little Snitch
Little Snitch is a powerful tool which helps you to protect your privacy and defend against various types of malware. However, in order to get the most benefit from it, it is essential that you understand what connections in a computer network really are, what properties describe them and how Little Snitch rules relate to them.
After installing Little Snitch, you are asked two questions:
- Do you want to use Silent Mode, which we recommend for the first week or two?
- Do you want to enable some built-in rule groups, which cover much of the every-day connections?
There is no right or wrong answer to these questions, it’s a personal preference and therefore Little Snitch asks you, the user.
