Lockdown launched on iPhone back in July, blocking ad tracking services, analytics platforms that monitor device usage, ads, and more for all apps you use (and not just Safari like most ad blockers). According to developer Rahul Dewan, Lockdown has blocked more than a billion trackers for lockdown users on iOS.
Lockdown for Mac is as simple and customizable as the iOS version of the app. The app contains a preinstalled list of recommended domains that must be blocked to prevent tracking, e.g. B. Facebook tracking and analytics tracking options from companies like Google and Mixpanel. However, custom lists can also be added.
The app can be used free of charge. Since it runs on the device, there is no user data collection. Lockdown was developed by the developers of Duet Display and monetized via an optional Secure Tunnel VPN service.
Lockdown can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]
