How to Use Little Snitch on Mac for Adobe

By Mario Calhoun

Little Snitch is a third-party application for Macintosh computers that monitors information sent by other applications in order to protect your privacy. As you use the Internet and run applications, Little Snitch will work in the background to monitor all activity and alert you if an application is attempting to send your protected information. When using Adobe software, Little Snitch will prompt you asking what action to take due to Adobe's frequent sending of user information to its server. In order to use Adobe software and Little Snitch simultaneously, you’ll need to add Adobe to Little Snitch’s trusted applications list.
