    This time, it's gone for good: dev's site doesn't exist any more, just a blank page or a 404 error.

    The dev seems to have stopped any development, even on his other apps. A pity. I had many crashes with Little Snitch under Mojave, same thing with Lilu. Only Hands Off! works with no crash!

    Cashapp bitcoin put me in deep dept after making dosen of payments to this individual I lost about $13,750 worth of bitcoin I was baffled at my own foolishness thinking it was a investment. Well finally with the help of other individuals who got scammed too I was introduced to liam sophia, she took my request down and I gave her some information regarding the scam and wow to be honest I didnt believe I would get my money back but well I did. You can contact her via: liamsophia39@gmail.com and also on whatsapp +1 (814)503-0528. Have a blessed day.

    I've been using Hands Off! for the last few years and initially it worked well. But now it causes constant crashes. Every few days my Macs spontaneously restart with a kernel panic due to Hands Off! The updates don't fix this. Contacting support gets you no response. I am sick of it and purchased Little Snitch instead. If you are considering Hands Off! I recommend you get Little Snitch instead. It works well.

    Hands off has continued to deteriorate from year to year, kernel panic and forced restarts have become more frequent. Initially, I thought that the problem would be solved with the next update. The support is incompetent. The worst part is that Hands Off still does not work on Catalina, which is a shame for paid software! I ended up having enough, and I bought Little Snitch, which does not cause any kernel panic… I regret having bought Hands Off! and not to have bought Little Snitch in the first place.

    4.4.0 version doesn't work with Catalina 10.15.2 but it is unacceptable that the after-sales service does not respond even after 3 emails. After many years I have to change software.

    Frequent kernel panics on macOS Catalina and no support to be had from the manufaturer—emails remain unanswered, don't expect any help or refund. Cave emptor!

    Causes kernell-panic once in a day or two, support doesn't respond (tried numerous times). It's a good piece of software and I'd love to continue using it, but these frequent kernel panics and unexisting support are a major deal-breaker. What a shame.

    I had been a big fan of Hands Off! versions 2 and 3 but I purchased a new Mac with Mojave that required me to upgrade to Hands Off! 4 and it causes frequent kernel panics. This has happened with every version between 4.1.0 and 4.4.0. I've emailed One Periodic support multiple times and they don't even respond. For anyone that would accuse me of being a "noob" with a mess on my computer: 1) I did a clean install of macOS Mojave. 2) I have no third party kernel extensions other than Hands Off! 3) Every panic report shows com.metakine.handsoff.driver in the backtrace. It looks like I'll be trying Little Snitch but it seems it doesn't monitor filesystem access like Hands Off! does. Can anyone recommend an alternative to Hands Off! for monitoring file access?

    Absolute garbage. Causes kernel panic about once a week. The 4.1.0 update didn't fix it. Just had another panic. I guess it's back to the more expensive Little Snitch, but LS has NEVER caused a panic or crash of any kind.

    Hands Off! V 4.2Update does not change anything. It's been 11th(!) time that software causes reboot of my system, because of com.metakine.handsoff.driver (4.2), which apparently causes kernel panic once or twice a week. The support@oneperiodic.com still does not answer my calls(!). To note! Suggestion or advice to give me? How can I fix this problem once and for all? Thank you.

    Hello, It's been 9th (!) Times that software causes reboot of my system, because of com.metakine.handsoff.driver (4.0), which apparently causes kernel panic. Guys, if I'm talking to you it's because support@oneperiodic.com just does not answer my calls. Do you have a suggestion or advice to give me? How can I fix this problem once and for all? At worst, reinstallation? If not, I'm already ready to uninstall it completely and move on to Little Snitch. I'm counting on you. Thank you.
