    Hi AppKed! First I dragged the new version app (4.2.0) to the application folder and upgraded successfully the previous version of the same app (4.1.0), then rebooted the iMac. Then noticed that the [Network Monitor] and [Network Activity Display in the Menu bar] both do not display any information. Although the install and upgrade process was very smooth, but it seems the K’ed version is not working properly. Secondly, uninstalled completely the app and proceed with a clean install, but this procedure faced with a window that says [User Approval Required], asking to go to [Security & Privacy, System Preferences] and allow the installation of the app. Although opened the gatekeeper accepting apps from any source, but still was unable to complete the install of this new version. My iMac is using macOS High Sierra 10.13.6. Question: Any suggestion? Thank you for your help.

    yup, not working here too – Mojave 14.5. breaks on “update”. Bit of a byatch to get rid of as well since “uninstall” is only available when the app is running!

    Hi AppKed! Hi Everybody!
    This version 4.2.1 works well with Mojave macOS.
    Question: Is this same version 4.2.1 Rel 2, working with Catalina macOS?
    Thank you for your comments.

    Dec 12, 2019. Hi AppKed! A comment about Hands Off! v4.4.0 and the recent updated macOS Catalina v10.15.2 (two days ago). This version 4.4.0 was working fine on macOS v10.15.1, but does not work on the Catalina v10.15.2. According to the official site of Hands Off! this version supports v10.15.1. There is not a new Hands Off! release yet for the support of v10.15.2.Just for your information. Have a nice day.
