    • Monitor applications to ensure they aren’t misbehaving, and are respecting your personal privacy by staying out of files they shouldn’t be in
    • Protect your removable media from being accessed by applications without your permission
    • Choose which applications are allowed to use your webcam, and which can’t, block it completely, or require authorization for every use
    • Know when your microphone or webcam are in use, when an application is intercepting your keyboard presses or mouse clicks, or eavesdropping on your internet connection
    • Prevent malware from taking control of other programs on your computer, running from your home directory, or becoming persistent
    • Prevent applications from installing junk that runs at start-up, which can slow down your computer
    • Protect the pairing records your computer uses to talk wirelessly to your iPhone, iPad, and other iOS devices

    To what extent does this class of product duplicate/interfere with Apple technology such as XProtect?
    Notwithstanding that, I'm looking forward to having XFENCE, HitmanPro.Alert/Intercept X and others available for macOS.

    My concern is I don't see an official way to uninstall the XFENCE beta...

    Could always uninstall it via the registry if you're comfortable doing that.
    Brain fart. Didn't register as MacOS in my mind even though I just read it. :oops:
