This is very useful on holidays, when I got my own mifi. No more costs because of an update that costs data. Like this app :)

Great and powerful menu bar app. The app's profiles feature is incredibly helpful, as I can set specific limits for each network type that I use. The app is unobtrusive and feels like it belongs on the Mac. Excellent price too! Thanks!

Pretty much zero setup for the common use case of tethering off a smartphone - nearly as easy for more complex needs. Highly recommended.

Use it when I'm hot spotting on my smartphone and when on a cruise ship where the online data plans are ridiculous .

It works, but I had an issue when I selected the Settings (I'm running El Capitan). I contacted support, including the crash log, and 32 hours later they shipped me some code to test! The new code has fixed my my issue. I'm giving 5 stars as the product works and support is great — a great little utility, well done!

Very impressive response from developer. I experienced crashing after the initial purchase. There was a very quick response from the developer with a correction for the problem. Now it seems to do what I need to monitor & control network traffic while travelling. Possibly a five star once I've had more time to use it on the road.

I have had the issue that with it turned on TripMode failed to pass along iMessages through Messages, even though I had “Messages & FaceTime” checked. Something must have been buggy.

My only complaint is that it took the developer a long time to reply to an inquiry regarding licensing. That let me to leave a less-than-stellar review. I did purchase this software. The licensing is good for three computers, which is great. The software itself is excellent. When I am tethered to my data plan (outside of my WiFi network), I can block data-hungry programs from downloading. The software is easy to set up. You are given choices of what programs are allowed to access data and which are not. One only needs to to turn TripMode on or off when needed, I would highly recommend TripMode for anyone that needs a means of blocking programs from eating up precious data when outside your home network.

This is an excellent app that works as advertised. A free trial is provided so that you can try the software before buying. The purchase price is quite reasonable. I have already purchased licenses for myself and for another person in my household. This makes it easy to avoid draining our data when we are on a metered connection. (While it is possible to configure Little Snitch to achieve similar results, TripMode provides a much easier and, I would say, superior solution.)

First, there is no customer support for anyone that has a simple question about the app. You need to pay for the app first before anyone in their support department will even speak to you. What is not clear about this software is whether a single license purchase would be good for all personal computers in a single household (meaning more than one).

A couple times a month I will connect my Mac via my cellular phone. My hotspot provides great upload and download speeds, which means I can quickly send/receive massive amounts of data through my limited plan. Tripmode has saved me on a number of occasions by stopping a number of background processes from using the hotspot while still allowing me to easily get my work done. Well worth the price of the app as it has saved me huge in potential "overage charges" from my cellular carrier.

Is TripMode El Capitan compatible? Can the required Kext-File be installed with activated SIP?
