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.
Some direction: Was wondering if there is anyplace to find a little help on locking down system apps. Or more info on the pre & post filters. Good app, but I bet you could make it better. Having some issue with apps I dont want connecting, but arent on the list to restrict..
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!!
Awesome is all I can say Intuitive interface, using a Vpn to connect to the firewall app is brilliant. aka.. no root necessary. custom adresses are easy to enter for those bothersome ip's. I haven't tried url's yet. I use wall watcher to verify the wifi connection to my router. This app works like a champ. the pending access tab is great. what more could a network engineer ask from a free app. God Bless!
