This app is AMAZING!!! I've stopped TMo, LG, & Google apps! Works so well, apps I normally use were getting the boot 😄 I have one app that, when started, force closed Mobiwol & itself. But after making some settings adjustments to Mobi & Nougat, they work perfect now. I'll update this review to include how battery life is affected. Definitely worth installing!!! Running on LG V20🖖
Stops many unnecessary internet access attempts by apps that really don't need to be contacting anything outside. Update: still using it several years later on new phone & pad. It still works great. Update 2 - sadly Mobiwol has become extremely unreliable, shutting down without any notification, crashing regularly (particularly when accessing the Play Store or when apps update) and locking up when trying to view logs.
Since upgrading to Android Marshmallow, Mobiwol keeps shutting down at random times; sometimes silently, sometimes with a warning popup. When this happens, it sometimes restarts automatically and sometimes needs to be restarted manually. This makes it unreliable as a firewall. I was hoping that the recent update would fix this. It didn't.
Absolutely fantastic app. Simple GUI yet a powerful one. App logging may be a bit verbose in terms of the number of times a new entry is created but it's up to you to configure it. Congrats to de dev(s)!
Used to be good. Crashes when switching between WiFi routers or to data or when you disconnect, or just crashed out of no where. This is a problem because it temporarily blocks internet access which can be a big red cross when playing a game or watching a stream. Used to be good. Now it gets in the way. Uninstall.
It's simple to use and does everything I need it to do. However, when the firewall is turned on, there it's a permanent icon and notification in the system tray. It's annoying and unnecessary, and there is currently no way to toggle it off.
