    Block unwanted background updates

    TripMode lists all the apps that are requesting internet access and blocks them by default. You can choose which apps get internet access and 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. It's also great if you want to only block specific apps.

    Install it and 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 when you tether your iPhone and turns itself on automatically when you connect to a hotspot.

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

    Keep an eye on the network activity of your Mac with the all-new Live Monitor. It identifies and measures all the traffic on your Mac and displays it beautifully. Combined with the new detachable window, you can move it around, resize it, and easily spot the data-hungry apps at a glance.

    These are brand new TripMode 3 features.

A simple concept, done well

Your Mac doesn’t care whether you are connected to a mobile hotspot, a slow public Wi-Fi, or a throttled data plan. Many background apps will aggressively try to download content and updates from the Internet. 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."

"It has a really nice user interface, it's very easy"
