Radio Silence is an extension platform consumers can download onto their laptops to help prevent Mac apps from connecting to networks, and using unwanted data. The program help to set up a series of firewalls that allow consumers to control what apps have the ability to automatically connect and which don't, as an added safety measure and monitoring system.

With laptops having many automatic functionalities, it can be difficult to know what programs work and update without the authorization of the user. Radio Silence help to give consumers more control over their apps by installing virtual prevention systems that stop apps from going online without the okay given by the consumer. The service allows apps to be more closely monitored.
