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. **********
PERFECT! This is a MUST HAVE app for anyone that uses their phone for everything! Mine is a battery eater and a firewall shutting my xtra apps access saves me power. A PC has s firewall written into the OS. It's about time we have one for our "mini PCs". Nice! Running on Moto Triumph w/ CM7.2 g60.
Not working Update 6/6/2013 It's not working on my Xperia S (Pre-rooted Build 6.2.B.0.200). Was working fine on ICS(build 6.1.A.2.45). When the white list is enabled, i've to choose Any application to use wifi. if not it won't let me use wifi even though the particular app is selected to use the wifi. Just awesome app.... Worked great on Xperia arc, galaxy s2. But does not seems to work on galaxy nexus (ics 4.04) stock rom :(
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.
So good! Had to find a firewall app once Avast removed their top notch firewall from mobile security. Came across this firewall and I'm glad I did. Easy to use, straight forward, and just good all around. Make sure to change the list to "blacklist" instead of "whitelist" for ease of use (just press the bar at the top that says "whitelist" which is the default mode). Thanks dev! Great job.
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.
☆ Added application icons to the list.
☆ New applications are shown on the top of the list.
☆ Enabled hardware acceleration on Android >= 3.0.
☆ Fixed OK button not showing in the Custom Script dialog on some devices. Pressing "back" also asks to apply on that screen now.
☆ Added support for a custom shutdown script, which can be used to define cleanup rules when the firewall is disabled.
☆ Avoid reloading the apps list all the time.
☆ Various bug fixes and enhancements.
