    I recently installed an application called Little Snitch.

    It's a great app for me (*******s

    How can I use it for me but not him?

    no, my dad has a system account.

    He hates it because (translated from Spanish), he "doesn't want to mess anything up on the computer and doesn't see why I install stuff like that."

    He's taken up like 1/3 the hard drive with photos of his all I want for him is the little snitch cancel or allow messages to keep popping up or he will get pissed

    Whenever he accesses another application, does he get something like this?:

    This is what the application (Little Snitch) is supposed to do. It cannot be controlled to one account.

    Now, you mentioned something about *******s. Are you trying to block some ******* servers or something?

    If you want a decent Bit******* client - get Transmission. It's free. Hopefully, you didn't buy the full version of Little Snitch. Best of luck!

    Yes, that is what I get.
    I am trying to block applications that I have *******ed from contacting the server and blacklisting me.

    So there is no way to have it for my account and not his?

    I can certainly look into it for you, but I cannot guarantee anything. Sorry.

    EDIT: The only thing you can really do is turn it off (which will stop the messages). There is no way to split the application and make it available to one account, and not another (I think).
