Well... I had a equalizer app I was trying to unblock for a second that I just downloaded, so I guess it blocks on default maybe but I looked for a hour to find the app in your logs/app management and nothing. Weird stuff. Also the ads blocking is always showing that it's blocking ads even when I don't have the app open and it isn't a app that's shows ads on phone anyways. So I'm not quite sure but its definitely improved.
Great potential, just needs polish Find this app very useful. It blocks ads and connections to dangerous locations very well and globally throughout your system. However the challenge is that it frequently blocks Internet access when you haven't been using your phone for a while and come back to it. To get around it I turn the firewall off and browse to a website and then turn it on again and it works until you let your phone sleep for a while. I have enabled it to run as a background app, but app needs usage access?
Terrific app Got more than what expected. Could not uninstall Baidu Chinese Spyware, so blocked Chinese country specific traffic itself with this app. After that got to know that my Coolpad ui tried to contact Chinese servers 900 times within an hour. You can completely control your traffic with this app. I blocked ADs also saving data. It also keep giving alerts on what are being blocked in status bar. Love this app.
Your info is going all OVER the World!! Download this...read the instructions! Then watch what happens. Google goes to Ireland. Local TV station connects thru Germany? You will be able to block access to China, Russia, Romania & any country in the world! If you don't care where your Apps access?, then skip this. But if want to know where your info is being transmitted?... Get ready for a real education. This App will give you 100% control & total control over Ads. It takes some time set it up, but once you understand how it works? You'll thank me
Lots of Good Stuff But it adds 3 icons to the status bar (top left), and no way to remove or hide them. Give me that to get 5 stars. Apparently has no customer support. Installed this on my slow Moto Bionic (Android 4.1.2), it sped back up to its original fast self! Won't let my Moto Droid Maxx XT1080 communicate. Only the phone works. Otherwise, seriously cool that you can block access to regions or individual countries (or both). Can't even get that on a PC firewall. Stops background I/O and almost all ads. Awesome!
Great app with some flaws This is one of the great app. I use NetGuard which is also a great app when working but it crashes a lot. LostNet working great except that block while in background does NOT work at all. It blocks Internet completely even when i am using the app. It should block internet when in the background, no? Btw, block ad works great! I will give 5 star once background block works
