TripMode 3

Major upgrade for the data usage control utility introduces new feature for viewing traffic of all apps in real time. ($15 new, 10.3 MB, macOS 11+)

@agen, the article lists TripMode 3 as a free update, but for me it was a paid update from TripMode 2. I received an email that gave me a coupon for 50% off the single-user licence if I upgraded before the end of the month. So I think after October, it will be a paid update at full price. Given the price is so low and TripMode is so great, I don’t think this is unreasonable, but you might want to update the pricing in your article.

If you haven’t installed BigSur, do not actually update your computer to TripMode 3. You can purchase the upgrade so that you have an updated license, but TripMode 3 does not run on any release below macOS 11. You will need to re-install TripMode 2, although I believe you can run it with the TripMode 3 license code.

Note: if you need to redownload TripMode 2, you can do it from here.
