Outstanding Firewall and lets you be in control of an application's communications with the Internet. If you want to minimize the collection of information information, here's where you control it. Denying an apps permissions and storage doesn't mean it still can't contact 'home' with the limited information remaining. I've used this since 2019 and it's an awesome tool to block provider installed apps that cannot be disabled. Samsung Pay is one example.

It's like a guard dog that typically sleeps on the job. Numerous connections that I'd prefer to have filtered aren't, so when it does end up filtering one, it's usually just an annoyance because it's a connection I would like permitted through. The "auto start at boot" does not work and it seems that one or more apps has the ability to trigger a network radio reset, which results in the firewall being disabled anyhow. To that end, it negates this app being classified as a firewall altogether.

The firewall works great at blocking annoying apps once it's configured on android 9. Startup works fine (although I tend to swipe that screen away once it's up), etc etc. Only thing that's odd is my phone shows it used 69gb of data this past month (but shows 30gb total mobile data used). Does the app work with wifi too? That's the only thing I can think would cause a miscalc with the data utilization.
