The best firewall This app is the best when it comes to data blocking especially when your device is not rooted. It really works like a charm. It allows me to grant internet access to a particular application. My data having been draining away drastically all this while. Thanks to Noroot firewall because I now know that every inbuilt and third party applications are all hungry for our monthly data plans even the least application you never expected such as torchlight application on every android
It's a simple firewall that works well. Works pretty well. Good for limiting background data usage and making you more aware of what apps are using the internet (even when you are not using them). However, if you are looking for a robust solution, this is probably not for you. I dig it though. It would be nice if there were a "firewall reset" button to make apps have to ask permission again and a single button (or drop down box) of various custom configurations. As it is, I find myself giving and revoking permissions often. Still dig it. 👍
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.
Great app. See what app is doing hidden communications. Still great after using it for the past year... If your are curious to see how often those apps are sending out days then install this. You will then see why your battery life is so bad. No additional permissions required. Works great even for a novice. Ome improvement would be after deleting queued up requests I'd top automatically close they Window. Minor but it would be nice. It is interesting to see how many apps are sending non-encrypted data via port 80.
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.
Wow..Grey Shirts--you're my heroes! For the first time in years, I feel like I have control of my phone again! Can't describe how good that feels but THANK YOU!! Still trying to figure out some things w/blocking & allowing access but that has to do w/my lack of tech knowledge. Love the way this app is set up--actually HELPS me learn more w/the easy toggles & the info provided in the Log. Great app all around!!
