Thanks maximeleb (can't make a direct comment for some reason), now I know not to get Hands Off. However, what brings me here is exactly to find an alternative to Little Snitch, because I can't find any way to either quit the application or stop it from starting with the system. It doesn't have the options for that, and if I force quit it from System Monitor it just restarts itself. That's a bit aggressive for my taste, not very sympathetic. I don't use it much, it's just sucking up system resources, but still I would like to find an alternative. Radio Silence (in the alternatives to Little Snitch) seems nice and cheap, also TripMode (same price). And the open source IceFloor – I'll try this one, as it's free and looks decent.

Such a bad licensing policy

about Hands Off! and Aurora · ·

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.
