Works well Tested and working fine on my Galaxy. Quicker than changing internet permissions,- as have fast and easy method of denying web access via built in widget.Would be useful however to have pop up reminder when installing apps as I forget to enable web and then cant figure why app not connecting! (Could use the "whitelist" mode to overcome this but would rather nt!)- Anyway many thanks to dev. Keep up good work.
Good app but nothing special here. Many others do the same thing. However, blocking SPECIFIC Ipv6 addresses would be something Unique which is the functionality I was originally looking for. Sorry but if you are going to say anything about iptables, you need to have functionality to be able to add single IP addresses into the iptables. This blocks the entire app, which is not what I am looking for. Thanks anyway.
Brilliant, but... There are a couple of features i would like to see. 1. Custom Profiles. E.g. let me create a profile called "custom" or "normal use" or "bare minimum" etc, that lets me select which apps can use wifi/data for each profile. Then depending on my situation a can just select a profile rather than individually selecting apps. 2. Notifications. Add an option so that i can see when and for what data is blocked. Just something in top menu bar. Would make troubleshooting connectivity issues easier than checking log.
Every Android needs a firewall Not only can it prevent data overages, saving you money, not only can it extend your battery life, but it's a vital security tool that every Android device needs, whether their owners realize it or not. I'm not sure if this is the best firewall for Android, it's the only one I've tried, but it's also the only one I've needed. ********** Update: This app has ceased being updated since the author sold the code to Avast. You should now consider either installing the Avast app or installing another firewall app. **********
Great but.. Great but missing either a notification icon, or a widget, in order to easily see if the firewall is still running. Is there any way to force it runnning so it won, it won't close ? Samsung galaxy note 2 sgh-i317m canadian version
Finaly total control of my phone I must say to the creator of this app one big thank you. This tool finaly allows total control who is using internet resources which was so annoying on stock android since a lot of apps wants to go online. Now I can use whatsapp worry free that some app will eat my 3g plan for nothing... Highly recommended to all users of android. Make this app your first market download.
