This application seems to do what it says my phone was infected with very nasty malware. I've yet to search any anti malware that will detect there is anything wrong, or remove although it had complete controlof my phone. I noticed the programs under settings in my phone that were definently suspect known hacking apps. they are grayed out and cant remove them. No root firewall gives you the opportunity to block whatever program you want. Thanks NoRoot for blocking until I can figure out how to remove
Very amazing firewall without ads. --- Maybe the log could tell if a connection was attempted through wireless connection ou mobile data, and rules could contain a per application 'Don't log' wireless connection and/or data connection attempt. --- Apps rules could optionnally be sorted by allow/block/undefined, for example : allow&allow -> allow(data then wifi)&undefined -> allow(data then wifi)&blok -> block&blok -> block(data then wifi)&undefined -> undefined&undefined, with application name as second sorting criterion.
It can't block IP's though it appears to present that it can under global filters. I first tried my PC's IP and I was able to port scan and my xplorer server, so I tried blocking every possible IP and can still surf internet etc. It's amazing at blocking specific apps but a small misleading with the global filters.
I can't recommend no root firewall enough for your average Android device user (even rooted phones). I use this application on every single one of my Android device is rooted or not. One thing to hold in mind when you begin this app it is creating a VPN tunnel in to be able to let or deny a specific traffic. So with this being said hold in mind everything you do while this app is started all the traffic in and out is going through a VPN server which we don't have control of. hold this in mind
First off... amazing app. Thank you for providing it. But I can't ignore the stability issues. Sometimes all data flow seems to stop. I've found that it's due to NoRoot Firewall becoming unresponsive. Once I stop and reset the firewall, traffic resumes. That can take minutes, though, as NoRoot Firewall is apparently severely bogged down. I also search it frustrating that I can't (I assume) use a VPN service while running NoRoot Firewall. Aside from those issues... awesome app.
One of the best apps I have come across to monitor what is going on on your phone. I do run into the problem of background application requests not going through. Am not sure how to set it to let certain apps to accept background requests. For example: I would like messages and calls to go through to signal even when it is not open. Even though all requests are approved for signal it only shows when I begin the signal app.
31% of my full battery is being aggressively drained by this non-optimized app. I used it for more than a week and the effect is always the same. Mi8, non rooted recent Pixel Experience rom (Android 9/Pie). Same drainage was observed on a stock Exynos S9 too. I hope developers can search a method to limit the drainage but till then I am obliged to delete it.
Crashes rarely, but it makes it simple to send a crash report and reset the service. I've never had any problems with viruses or anything on my phone, and it definitely gives me peace of mind and makes me feel safer. I like being able to block or let apps internet access on either wi-fi or data.
I had a amazing experience with this app. I like it very cuz it doesn't present you stupid ads. But I a problem, when turn it it shows its notification even I've turned off the notifications. I don't wish it to present the notifier that VPN connected. I use it to prevent children from using some apps but they simply disconnected it from the notification bar. Dear Developers. Please resolve this issue.
Very nice app. And very enlightening to see which apps wish network access. Simple to block an application or a URL. HOWEVER, the issue with this application and all other "no-root" firewall apps is that they use Android's VPN functionality even without being a real VPN. Which means you cannot runs a true VPN and this application at the same time! How disallusioning is that. Sucks. I would like a real VPN and a non-rooting firewall. How to do that? No idea...
This is an unbelievable app. It solved a long awaited issue of auto installation of malwares. My mobile had a few apps pre-installed by manufacturer which couldn't be uninstalled or disabled. These apps regularly used to advertisements & malwares. With this app, I managed to block all those poor apps' internet activity and hence the problems are now resolved.
The application works amazing but it has some issues: battery draining aside, it has a tendency to stop traffic for modernize and downloading when in the filters all similar systems have permission to connect already (apps and other downloading overall) and video playing (YouTube, Dailymotion, WhatsApp to some extent). I have to re-start the application in to obtain it back on work appropiately.
How do I you? Exactly what I wanted. I used to root my phones mostly to obtain a firewall. For those wondering, this establishes a VPN to the phone itself, not an outside service. This allows the program to inspect and block or forward traffic. The downside is increased CPU load. I search the load minor and well worth it. Thanks guys.
GREAT APP! The VPN function is not perfect, but ok. At least it works without rooting. But there are still a few features missing. - Directly visiting the main domain with one - Timed allowance for certain times for certain apps and rules - Filtering the access log for certain apps, ports and urls
It actually works and it's easy to use. The only thing I don't quite understand yet is the filters. Once I learn to configure the filters I'll obtain the full benefits of this easy to use and very effective. I want I could search an online user manual... That would be just great. Hopefully the developer can build a website with a user manual but even without the filters this firewall is very effective.
Amazing application to track and manage out going traffic. You'll be surprise how much info is being sent out from your cellphone or intelligent devices. No root is needed for this application to function properly (note: very few escalated privilege apps may not be managed). Thank you to developer for providing such a amazing application for to the consumers. Wished I had a related application for each of my desktops with the same functions and ease of use
💋 I adore this app. I can have a solid VPN without rooting a device now. I have also found it easily compatible with a dozens of well designed spyware detecting apps & cleaning apps, all of which are Google Play verified & on the Google Play Store. If you value privacy & smoother online function of your handheld communication devices, I would strenuously recommend this well designed, reliable app. Kudos to the developers...keep dreaming & designing! ❤
I've used this for years, installing on each fresh phone. But, it doesn't seem to be blocking all apps on data connections anymore. That could be the LTE issue mentioned in the description. It seems that it won't be updated as it hasn't been in a lot of years. What a pity.
Amazing. Works perfectly and its the only service that provides the 1 thing that apple gives on iphones. So useful for android games with ads and its UI is epic, only one possible improvement may be the ability to slide between screens rather than having to at the top to navigate.
Brings Galaxy S10 internet to a CRAWL It's been a while since I had used this but I figured I'd give it a go because I'm sick and tired of all the spying being done not to mention the ads and everything slowing down my phone but unfortunately this makes things worse as regardless of settings and browser used, pages have lots of problem loading and take forever. Clearly the application needs to be updated as it hasn't been updated in a number of years and so therefore is not fully compatible.
This apps almost perfect. For one thing it blocks most ads(random ads) from popping up. if an ad create it through, you can check the access log and delete the malware. But if you just cram malware on your phone vy going past secure access, well like i said its almost perfect.
This application does a amazing job. Yet it does need a software/program modernize because the hackers are definitely five years advanced in their skills. NoRoot Firewal has NOT been updated in five years. It may be beautiful far behind the "new" technology. Is why I combine it w/ more modern apps....
Does exactly what it says. now I've blocked sneaky apps trying to auto modernize or just trying to access the net without my permission, I'm in total control I don't even mind that my phone says this is the one which uses much of my battery its because it's gatekeeping all the time!...I'm glad I've found it almost immediately when wanted such an application since there are a 100s of apps out there claiming to do the same thing better and finding the excellent one can be a headache I'm glad with this one 10/10
This application is awesome and does excellent work what it is designed for, but being using it for a long time i mostly felt the need of some extra features that the developer must consider for fresh update:- 1-Ability to make lists, so that in idle state various list of allowed apps can be activated. 2-All allowed apps should be on top of list instead of finding them while scrolling. 3-NoRoot Firewall sensitivity should be increased for allowing or not allowing data to the apps.
Very flexible. Tells me when an application wants network access and blocks it until I set a rule for it, which it uses thereafter. Per application and global rules. No tip on what to block, nor pre-made block lists, so if you are a novice and not prepared to place a bit of effort in this may seem hard work. Been using this application for ages on a Chinese import. Enables me to stop thousands of attempts a day to contact China. Has crashed a few times but still not found anything better.
Should enable the option for "always on VPN" option. Also, "disconnect internet if VPN us not connected". amazing but begin on reboot does not actually begin the service. only opens app. have to "start" to begin the service. Stops service randomly. Would be nice if it could reset its service after it got disconnected for whatever reason. Seems to be intentionally unstable.
It's doing what I think my phone should do, block apps from accessing the internet! I restricted my apps access in the phone settings but they were still connecting with the internet, not anymore;-) RoRoot firewall is simple to set up and works reliably. I'm very satisfied with it.
This application is the best enhancement ever , so easy to use . Do your application research and control those device data hogs, and stop invasive apps from using your data slowing u down. Amazing job! developers , your work may one day alow us to have some control on the devices we again.
Os is all beond my comprehension I dont have much programming skills with apps . is nice to be able to limit the apps this method is why I gave it a 4 star I really need colleged about these things Ive had amazing luck with just putting all fresh apps from macintosh toshiba since these phones are all resold remanufactured phones and I just baught one with apps from 2005 .
automatically amazed by the method this app was desidned and how it works. so a lot of apps out there but when we speak of a well built firewall - this is it. can you please add a feature where we can disable all the apps that we do not need to access the internet and re-enable at the same time.
Superb. I can now install applications (apps) and deny internet access to prevent the adverts being updated. The apps still modernize through play shop but no more childish adds. I detest all forns of advertising. Thank you to all involved in making this a simple, functional must have piece of software.
In my best estimation this application has worked incredibly for me, for which I'm most grateful for it's being available to the determinee novice at undertaking the challenge underatanding info systems via the vast and wealth of knowledge the globe wide web provides. The design and features of this application encourage the users own intuitive discretion. Thank you, once again 🙏
Useful application, if you need to hold your data usage under control. The one thing that I don't like, is that you have to select each app installed on your phone manually. There's no "select all" option, and if you have a lot of applications installed on your phone, it can be quite a chore to set it up.
More necessary than ever since rooting seems to be almost impossible now. Seems to work but not sure it works 100% of the time, for example blocking YouTube mobile data. Would love if they Implement a timer to turn the firewall back on when you temporarily wish to shut it off. Also an application access timer that would grant temporary internet access to an application and then automatically shut off.
I'll loved it, but there are a lot of rooms for improvement like the power consumption is quite high, the UI is so easy (I mean, sooooo simple... and rough), and manual switches. It would be better if they'll add a feature where I can turn it on (start) and off (stop) in the notifications so I could just tweak it whenever I wanted to. But, it's all good, I mean better than the other no root firewalls.
I allowed Google play to access my wifi, but it can't the fresh app until I turn this application off. Even log don't present any other application with pending access on the same time. Must be something that your application can't see. Like another layer of network?!
Amazing so far. Straight forward install and use, no in depth config work required. Easy interface, quite simple to understand. Straight forward selection of apps you want to give internet access to, by either wireless connection or mobile data. So far seems to be doing the trick. Perhaps a further selection option of Bluetooth in addition to the wireless connection and mobile data would be good, but I have no complaints.
this application works very well. however, after a period of use my phone well freeze. touch screen no longer works and i have boot into recovery to turn off my phone before turning it back on. Razer phone v2 still, this application does everything it advertises to do.
application used to be great, i have to begin and stop it to let google play to modernize my apps otherwise its "pending download" forever. also a latest emui updste allows wireless connection calling, this application completely blocks that capability, doesnt even detect it to allow you "allow" it through the filtering. its a amazing idea, but it has become less and less of a amazing user experience. Create it $2 and give us an modernize or something.
Stops everything that can be stopped from accessing your device. Tells you what add ons are hitchin' with your apps. It's amazing. Even detects items traveling method faster than light. You will realize your vulneribility. The squad supporting this application is collaborating more than most governments in to create this application available. This application beats all for apps available to the general public. It really does what it says!
First, its so to complain is stupid. Second. Its better than all of the firewalls I have bought before A small tricky at first but read the directions or youtube some instructions. Gets an A on its report card. Once you learn the ins and outs, not too extensive, maybe a week of playing with it (program), theres no reason to test anything else. And no I dont work there or have stock. I just wish to support a person avoid wasting their timesearching for a amazing firewall. You found it
A real and complete firewall app that allows us the user choose what applications connect and where they connect. Yes you're going to have to do some research to search out if you wish the application to have these network connections or you can just hit yes and know that they're logged. ;-)
I absolutely love this App! It blocks any and everything from internet access or stops apps from performing actions and holds them at bay until you can decide which to let access or not. So much more such as filter tweak capability and comes with a built in VPN! Thanks and hold up the amazing work. look forward to any upgrades
I think that this application is an interesting idea, but there are problems with it. It drains my battery (just like running any other VPN full time would). It locks up occasionally and I have to stop and begin it to obtain network traffic going again. And I can't use my actually VPN and this at the same time.
after filtering out all apps including Google system and phone manufacturer apps which cannot be uninstalled, I still obtain charged for unknown mobile data. I have only allowed WhatsApp mobile data to pass thru firewall because I all-inclusive WhatsApp data bundle, i.e. I should not have additional mobile data charged . Appreciate guidance how to solve this for Android device 4.3. Thanks
Why the 4 stars: its super hard for users to enter each and every ip we wish to block. Create a very easy feature that allows the application to import a text file containing a list of ips from sd card, or just allow us paste copied lists, and allow the application parse it. On the other hand, why not create and place a list of ad servers into the application itself, which we can choose to block? Some people at xda have already done that with this application but their way is hard for us simpletons to understand.
Amazing firewall, I kept seeing a pop-up ad and didn't know what application it was coming from, tracked it down from logs and blocked it and don't see it anymore. I'm on a rooted Motorola One Zoom, no problems and only uses 48mb in ram. Would be awesome if the developer(s) can Implement numerous protocols of blocking, see "ProtoWall" for Windows XP which blocks over 30 protocols. Also, would be amazing if you can add a feature to add custom blocklists.
Probably the best VPN firewall which also stops Android device system files from accessing the internet. I didn't give it five stars is because it's not very aggressive at starting again like certain apps ie. clean Master, etc which continue to begin no matter how a lot of times you slay it. They're only been a few surprises when I found that the firewall had stopped working & it did not inform me nor did not even reset itself. Since this is probably the most necessary application on my phone, it needs 2 reset
Nice App. It would be nice to contain (Always on) Vpn Option. I would be nice to contain a true (Vpn Option) that actually takes you to other countries. That would really save me some time Downloading other vpn services. I use this application on all my devices and i look forward to the day when your Application is available for Windows 10 as well. So yes, for the future be the best (Firewall & Vpn) service on the internet. Just a few tweaks and your amazing to go 😘
I love this app. In 2014 I had major run ins with law enforcement. They factory restart my fresh intelligent phone remotely. They were turning my camera on and off. Playing melody - Charlie Pride seemed a fave, "Help Me Create It Through The Night." I place this on...boom! No problem. Thank you.
I am so crazily satisfied with this app... Does what it says... I always wanted to block the internet access of my phone and hold the internet on... BAM! Works man... Hahahaha.... I guess I am sorted .... Simply outstanding.. love you guys for making this app... Blessings ❤️❤️❤️
I love this app! I like the amount of control it gives me over apps and really makes my phone more secure. I have had issues because I got block-happy and later had to go back and let things, but that was my own fault. I also have fun blocking Bixby, which I never asked for and Samsung force feeds us.
Nice app. First installed it in an attempt to block malware connecting to the internet on a previous device. It didn't really resolve the issue completely. But it opened my eyes to chance of blocking background apps more effectively than Android device is capable out of the box.
Stop the data leeches. This application helps me save time with my phone by stopping those apps that continually wish to use huge amounts of data. It was either this or search a lawyer and begin suing the people that hold sucking up my data. Amazing app.... thank you
The only application that would actually allow me block internet access for some apps (WhastApp) while still allowing other apps to work! Only problem: some apps may not work either despite being given access permissions e.g. Youtube and (funnily enough) Google Playstore. No error notice or anything, they just hold loading for hours on end. Please fix this!
works, but want there was an option to enable the firewall for all apps instead of manually selecting apps one by one. not sure if it allows incoming connections as the case with netguard firewall but blocks the application from using the internet i.e. google voice can't send messages, no internet access, but it still receives messages.
a bug in this app when user disable internet access for all apps which is installed in that device but although internet accessed by all apps which is installed in same device. example : i block internet acess all apps also google but when i use google it has my internet access. fix it that is not a joke or make batter it by add a feature to delete option for pre-installed monitoring app only not system apps . i think i write all things which is important.
The most consequential application I have ever downloaded. It's so difficult to root my phone and this briliant idea is the next best option that gives the user back much deserved power and control over their private device. I can stop Samsung from harassing me with notifications and can stop Bixby from updating and hopefully can also stop forced system updates so they will only occur when I'm ready for them to. Thank you so much, I feel like I own my device again!
