  1. Little Snitch

    • Mac

    A firewall protects your computer against unwanted guests from the Internet. But who protects your private data from being sent out? Little Snitch does!

    Little Snitch vs GlassWire opinions
    Most users think Little Snitch is a great alternative to GlassWire.

    Little Snitch doesn't provide detailed statistics on a longer time base but is more intended for real time. It is however a great application and I would call it a "reverse firewall".

    NetWorx vs GlassWire opinions
    This alternative is disputed. NetWorx is still a legitimate alternative to GlassWire, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Glasswire can block connections - Networx only reports on them
