On version 3.0.3, still cannot make persistent notification icon go away. When enabled, persistent notification is a shield, when disabled it is a white ball. Developer says white ball is from Google. That may be, HOWEVER, neither existed in v2.9 and earlier, so persistent notification icon is due to some change within the app between 2.9 and 3.0. Based on other reviews, these changes should be reverted back to how the old version handled things. I'm glad I still have a copy of 2.9.

I removed notification dot in the recent version. But active notification (on going) will stay until I find a workaround.

AFWall+ is probably one of the most important apps on my phone. I like how I can leave an app's wireless capabilities off by default, essentially sandboxing it before allowing it to access the internet. My primary use case, however, is disabling access to data on my media apps. Without AFWall+, I would have drained all the data on my limited phone plan countless times. Definitely earned my donation, I've saved way more than $5.

Update: please make it stop auto refreshing during games!! It causes constant disconnects. Make it detect game modes. For what it does, great app. But it will randomly reapply settings in the middle of mobile games, which causes 15 second disconnects. Very bad for competitive gaming. No way to "mute" it or have it recognize game mode.. developer failed to respond to emails...
