Private Eye

Private Eye 1.0

Private Eye is a network monitoring application for Mac.
1.1 (See all)

Private Eye is a network monitoring program that informs you whenever a launched app within your Mac connects to the Internet. In addition, you can also keep track which applications allow incoming Internet traffic and the exact time when the connection was made.

This app can be used as a companion for Radio Silence, a program from the same developer. Private Eye lets you know which applications connect to the Internet when launched and Radio Silence blocks these programs from doing so.

An advantage of working with Private Eye is that it brings you real-time network connection info. Plus, the program enables you to filter the offered details by application (Firefox, iTunes, etc.) or direction (incoming or outgoing) for a clearer view.

If you wish to clear the program's Internet connections list, all you need to do is restart the software and let Private Eye resume its tasks.

To sum things up, Private Eye is a good solution for monitoring the incoming and outgoing Internet traffic. The program is very simple to use, offers you information regarding which applications connect to the Internet, and comes with no price.
