Really useful but app usage needed I have been using this for a while now on my Xperia to wrest control from the stock o.s. However you lose sight of the data usage on a per app basis because Android logs it all to noroot. A useful addon would be a tab with the top 10 apps download byte count. If an auto reset of the count could be added on a day of the month too that would be splendid.
A must have app Does what it says. You can monitor and regulate those extra chatty apps and control the traffic in your device. Love the functionality, permissions balance without root access. No devious behaviour by the app itself as far as I know. Only thing this app needs is to differentiate between foreground and background connections. But 5 stars anyway, for minimal permissions, being simple and efficient, free and ad-free.
Nifty Security Application Awesome , works as intended. Filters apps that should not be asking to connect to the internet. Also blocks applications you want to use offline by stopping any initial data transfer request the app you are using might have (I.E app permissions and what information you allow the app to pull from your phone). 5/5 because not only does it work but its free and there are no ADs.
Almost perfect This is an awesome app, I love it! Only one issue...it blocks incoming and outgoing MMS including group messages on all messenger apps: stock messenger app for phone, Hangouts, Textra. I am on a Samsung Galaxy S4, however friends with the new Galaxy S6 have the same issue. This causes me to not use it anymore. PLEASE fix this issue. Also, if possible add the ability to block Apps from accessing cell service/wifi when running in the background; help save data and battery power.
Very useful depending on purpose Very useful to identify background communications. May not save battery directly, since apps eat battery "attempting" to connect... in fact it seems battery consumption could potentially be worse by using a firewall app.. its most usefulness comes from simply seeing what hidden communication is taking place & maybe some saving on data plan for those on tight budget. May also save battery by getting rid of communication happy apps.
Just a suggestion It would be great if we could also get to know the amount of data each app is accessing. You see, I downloaded an app to check that but it shows that all the data is being accessed by NoRoot Firewall. That's because all the data is being rerouted through your app, I guess. And I don't want to remove this much useful app. So, if you could add that feature, it would great! Thanks!
