I downloaded this app reading a couple reviews on what goes on with apps we don't know about; amazing what it shows! I'm not a techie like these guys here, but knowing that I am in control of my info. NOT going out of the country is really good to know. It would be better for us non techies, to have more details on using this app please! You would get more users of this great app!
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.
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.
Effective within it's limitations. Love the geo info and choices. Wonderful idea. Same for the statistics. Unfortunately, it fails as a firewall because of the coarse choices. EX: Want network data access in the car but not at home with GPS navigation apps like Waze. Can't select that. Change to selecting WiFi, Cell Data on/off individually. Want block on China except for Asus, etc support files and shopping sites/apps like Aliespress, Gearbest, etc. Russia for my Yotaphone support. Need exceptions by domain (browser) AND app. Still using No ROOT firewall because of the fine grained choices. Combine the 2 for a truly great app. Do that, I'll be happy to buy.
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?
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
