TripMode is a program designed for people who travel and wish to reduce Internet data consumption on their Macs. The application helps you spot the tools that use large amounts of Web data and allows you to block utilities from accessing the Internet as soon as you connect to a hotspot.
The utility lives on your Menu Bar from where you can change the way it operates. Once the app is enabled (turn slider to ON position), the program displays a list containing all Mac utilities that use Internet data. Then, you can choose which apps are allowed to be connected to the Internet.
TripMode also comes in handy if you want to learn which of your Mac programs use large chunks of Internet data. It can also be used to identify if there are any apps that use Internet connections to send data without your approval. You can block them from accessing the Web with just one click.
Another great thing is that you can sort the offered information according to your needs. For instance, you can organize the apps list in ascending order based on their names, show only the tools that used Internet connections today, etc.
In my opinion, it's worth buying this app if you travel a lot and wish to reduce Internet data usage on your Mac to save money. The program is intuitive, works flawlessly, and is cheap.
