Fire­wall op­tions

1 UL­TI­MATE SE­CU­RITY

Check this box to turn up fire­wall se­cu­rity to the max. The Mac blocks all con­nec­tion at­tempts over the net­work, apart from es­sen­tial ones.

2 AL­LOWED APPS

This is a list of all the apps that are al­lowed to com­mu­ni­cate over your net­work con­nec­tion. Search on­line for any you don’t recog­nise to check it isn’t mal­ware.

3 BLOCK AC­CESS

If you find an app in the list that you don’t recog­nise and which looks sus­pi­cious, click here and set its net­work ac­cess rights to ‘Block in­com­ing con­nec­tions’.

4 HIDE YOUR MAC

There are easy ways for ne­far­i­ous peo­ple to de­tect your Mac over a net­work. En­abling stealth mode stops this, and is use­ful when us­ing a pub­lic Wi-Fi hotspot.
