Managed and unmanaged apps
An app is managed if its icon is listed in Managed Apps view. If not then it is unmanaged.
Being managed means that Vallum will look for specific app rules in case of a connection. When a connection matches an existing app rule Vallum will pass or block it accordingly. If not then Vallum will react according to your preferences: in some cases it may simply pass the connection, in some other cases it may hold the connection, trigger a notification alert to ask you whether to pass or block the connection.
Each managed app has its own set of rules. The combination of these rules defines the app status. An app can be:
- passed with exceptions (exclusive)
- blocked with exceptions (inclusive)
- mixed-state (triggers notification alerts if needed)
