Hi there, I would like to know if there are any private firewall software for home that can sniff HTTPS traffic and show the URLs Additionally, I would like the software to be able to block the URL. AFAIK, I think there is only one software (NetPeeker) that is currently able to do this.

 

I need something like HTTP Debugger / IEInspector HTTP Analyzer with URL blocking capability..

 

Thanks!

Can Fiddler block URLs intercepted and prevent them from making connections later?

It can block URL's but I think there are better and easier solutions for URL blocking than using Fiddler.

Can you give me some other solutions? Note that I am referring to system wide blocking and not just browser? I would like to view the HTTP(S) requests (URLs) and would like to block them. Thank you!

The better and easier solutions I meant were at the browser level by using addons and extensions. These can also be useful for getting the URL.

 

Does your router support URL blocking? You could load that up.

Another option might be a DNS service that offers web content filtering.

Thanks. As I mentioned earlier, I am referring to a system wide monitor/blocking. Something like AdGuard (which has a log monitor and also ability to block the individual connections/URLs). I can block URLs in my router firmware but will have to add one by one each URL (which is very time consuming). I am looking for a firewall software that will sniff and show all the requests (incoming/outgoing) from my PC in the format shown below (URLs) with the ability to block them.
