Exzellent Gibt dem Benutzer die Kontrolle zurück, welche Apps ins Netz dürfen - und welche nicht. Nachdem mittlerweile fast jedes Programm aus oft unerfindlichen Gründen Netzzugriff verlangt ist Droidwall die angemessene Antwort. Schade, dass mit root als Voraussetzung die Schwelle für manche zu hoch liegt. Aber da Android nichts vergleichbares mitbringt lohnt der Aufwand. Kompliment und Dank an die Entwickler.
Iptables is the de facto standard, So why can't we have some basic features that are conspicuous by their absence? Save/export logs, rules, etc. would be a great place to start. It could be my phone, but log is always empty when I turn it on in the morning; occasionally it's emptied itself while in use. The rules all remain... Just to save me the bother of searching for them, where are logs, scripts and rules kept? More stars when features added and glitch fixed. Ta.
A good and user friendly firewall. Droid app works well but it always fail to stop MXplayer from connecting to internet. And who knows if others are also connecting to internet in the background! But still it's worth installing. (18.6.2013). Update: Though it fails sometimes for some apps but this is very few.
Excellent app. App works well. Sets individual permissions to registered apps successfully and remain set until changed under root permission. Set app permissions, remain set even after access to root, is set to deny. This app converts successfully into a system app, but still requires root permissions to change firewall settings. Widget does not work when root permission is set to deny, only when granted. Kyocera Hydro 4.0.4 (rooted) of course! Lol ;)
Better than Avast! I had this installed then setup Avast, thinking that I could consolidate features between apps. Avast is great, but the firewall is over simplified. I couldn't get a couple of apps to work with Avast, even after enabling all registered apps and rebooting the phone. Switched back to Droidwall and haven't looked back since. Excellent app! Suggested enhancements: notification and ability to quickly update firewall settings when an app is trying to connect to network. Also, Notify after installing app. Thanks!
A must for any rooted device Great for blocking internet access for apps that call up ads or transfer data. Like an app but not the permissions? Worried about updates that may send you over your data allowance? If it doesn't require internet access to function, Droidwall will cut it off for you, just like your device was in flight mode. Easy to set up, and you can default all apps to on or off by default.
