Hands Off! Comments

Such a bad licensing policy

Negative Comment by maximeleb
about Hands Off! and Aurora Nov 2015

I bought HandsOff! few monthes ago. It works pretty well...when it works, but crashes a lot without notifying anything ! Your firewall falls down, and you cannot notice anything...

Moreover, One Periodic asked me to pay again $20 to get the version 3 that just adds...Mac OSX El Capitan support. That is a shame.

Better get Little Snitch which has a better reputation. And above all, do not get into their pricing gears. They will ask you to pay a new license for every MacOS X updates without really new features ; and they are not ashamed about it.
