    Block background updates

    TripMode lists all the apps that are asking for Internet access, and blocks them all by default. You get to choose which ones get Internet access. See their total data usage.

    🎉NEW: You can now also always allow Internet access to newly detected apps, making it a perfect traffic monitoring companion. Also great if you want to only block specific apps.

    Install it, forget it

    TripMode remembers the networks you previously activated it on, so you don't have to remember to do it yourself. It also detects iPhone hotspots and turn turns itself on automatically when you are connecting to one.

    Frankly, you can set it up once and never look back. That's how easy we want it to be.

    Avoid data overage fees

    Set the limits: never be surprised by a huge data bill again, because something downloaded too much data in your back.

    TripMode can warn you before you're about to reach a limit that you've set. It will then block all the data transfers.

    You can easily limit traffic of specific networks only, such as your mobile hotspot.

A simple concept, done well

Your Mac doesn’t care whether you are connected to a roaming mobile hotspot, a slow public Wi-Fi, or a throttled data plan. Plenty of background apps will aggressively try to download content and updates from the Internet like there's no tomorrow. TripMode stops that.

When TripMode is turned on, it prevents all your apps from accessing the Internet but those that you have allowed. It typically stops automatic updates, online backups, cloud drive syncs, and various background apps from consuming precious data.

"Apple’s OS X does not have a “metered connection” setting built in, but you can monitor and manage network connections and downloads with third-party tools like TripMode."
