Fills a BIG hole! It seems dumb that you must root your device in order to protect your privacy now that Google has done away with app ops. Strange since IOS still has easy to use privacy features without jailbreaking. This app provides restores some control at the network layer without having to hack your device.
Welldone Very good app its solve my problem i lost my credit due to mobile data social package every time which allowed me only facebook and whatspp but now i am happy that i found this app and test it and amazing work by developers .. hope for more cheerup
Sweet app thanks One question, is it possible to be able to block background mobile data yet allow background wifi? With all the options you went to the trouble of writing that one seems like it would be in the top three yet it is nonexistant. Im not as talented or smart as these devs so it might not be possible
OK but... Cannot be used with background data restricted as some apps like messenger cannot get a connection if you do. Unless there is a setting I am missing Just to clarify it is with data restricted on Android not the device that causes no connection and is not restricted to one application but many if not all and goes away when Mobiwol is deactivated.
i wish i could give 5 stars, but stopping app functions without making it obvious that mobiwol needs to be disconnected causes me to give 2 stars instead. the following email was responded to, but no help on this issue. following from 3/13/15 email: all question related to 3g. background data: on my old android 2.1 if i tried to access something that needed background data, i'd get a notice about background data. with mobiwol it seems things just don't work till i figure out why. as a result i don't dare limit anything not knowing how apps interrelate. so, i've reverted back to a "data on-off" widget even tho i think mobiwol is a better solution. i show 74 apps in the firewall rules. too long to list but any guidance? for instance can google maps work without google account manager? will "email app" work and refresh if i disable 3g in gmail app? i refresh email when necessary and use google maps to avoid traffic jams. i use opera mini for search under 3g. bottom line, i'd like to be told i've switched something off that needs to be on. dave
NO ROOT - Sweet! Does a great job of blocking ads when playing games and using offline free apps by disabling all Net access. Lets me know what apps are connecting to the Net. Being no root means a couple of extra steps on boot up, but a small price to pay for the extra security. No noticeable slow down or data usage or battery drain. Stopped Youtube app loading on startup. Some reviews on Google express concerns about what the developer is tracking - guess that is up to you whether to trust them or not.
