Hi, I got a Nexus 6p, using stock Android 8 but using GoLauncherZ, and the widget doesn't seem to show correct status until I move to different screen then back. Then it shows correctly. Only a small thing, as its set to vibrate when on/off, so know when it's working and turned off. Worked well with Nougat, so hope it'll get back to the high standards that were previously experienced. One app that should be tried and purchased Thanx, Chip. Ps and if a video walkthrough was available, then even better, hope it happens.
If one of the pro options was to reduce the size and visual impact of the massive "enforcing rules" in the pull down area, I'd buy. They seem to have missed my point, that you can offer this black on grey or other similar options so it's not in your face. I have other enduring apps that require icons to stop them being shut down by Android, but most are much smaller and less annoying!
I had been eying various Firewalls for my Android phone on and off for awhile. I have read quite a few reviews and responses by the developer. There are way too many people nowaday with an entitlement mentality and expect a lot for nothing. Let's just say as a small business owner I could identify with the developers responses to some of them. I installed Netguard and without even trying it first, I immediately purchased all the pro features. I am quite impressed with its abilities and the information it reveals from connected apps and their data harvesting and ad serving... and let the filter list begin!
I consider this the de facto Android VPN-based application firewall. I don't understand a 1-star review unless someone simply doesn't understand the app. All of the functions are what I would expect. If you're looking for minimal pro features to purchase the most useful is Filter Network Traffic. Notifications of new apps and the view blocked traffic log are 2nd. The other 2 pro features are might-as-well. I mainly use this to set my VPN DNS servers, it also gives easier access to Android's own background data controls, and I use it to block individual 3rd party domain from apps- excluding my browsers (I block unwanted browser traffic separately to reduce NetGuard's number crunching.) I've thought of making a video tutorial of some simple best practices. Maybe someday.
This app is only the best app in the play store which sorted out all the issues relating to data consuming and blocking. Now I know how to keep such data hogs at bay. Very intuitive UI and easy to use. A must have app for all. Recommended !
Great app! Please add the option to create custom profiles, so we can apply predefined changes at once, like when roaming abroad and back home. Thanks!
