Sorry to hear you're having trouble with this. Personally, I'm not super familiar with Little Snitch (I ran the free demo for a couple days but didn't have any issues) but I know a couple other people have recently mentioned having issues with it.
That said, you might want to take a look at this thread - unfortunately we didn't get details from the customer on what rules he changed, but apparently resetting the rules fixed the issues he was having, which sound pretty similar to what you're experiencing.
Can you give that a try and let me know how it goes?
Maybe this thread would be more helpful than the last that I suggested. It goes into a fairly good discussion of how LS and SAV work together.
The TLDR of it all is: try turning off web protection if you're finding it's SAV is too intensive on your internet connection.
Hope that helps!
Hey,I have similar problems with Sophos home.. once a week it decided to upload lots of data over my poor 10/5 connection, and thats really annyoing,
Im aware it needs to update its signatures or whatever but using 2-4Mbit up for 30min is just a really big joke.. how? Why? How to stop? Please, I hope there is some fix for this, or I actually have to use other software, thats not bearable to me :(
Hi LOL NO
It will try to update the signatures when it has data connection. However, if you are seeing these issues repeatedly, You can reach our Sophos Home Support team and they shall help you with this.
