This app is used to prevent apps from accessing the Internet, either Wi-Fi or mobile data (GPRS/3G/4G).

★ Block Internet access on a per-app basis
★ Separate mobile data (GPRS/3G/4G) and WiFi access control
★ Restore the blocked networks by tapping the notification icon

It would be useful to add e-book reader apps to the blocked apps list so "Net blocker" can help to disable the Internet connection when you are reading. It helps to reduce waste on your data plan usage and save the battery life.

To block networks for specified apps
1. Open "Net blocker"
2. Tap app that you would like to block it from accessing the Internet access
3. Check the network types that you'd like to block
4. "Net blocker" app will automatically disable the Internet connection when the blocked app is running in the foreground
5. A new notification icon will tell you which networks are blocked
6. Tap the notification icon to restore the Internet connection, tap again to disable the Internet

"Net blocker" only blocks the networks when the blocked app runs in the foreground.
It won't prevent blocked apps from accessing the Internet when the app runs in the background.

For Android 4 or greater users, you can restrict background network accessing by going to
Launcher > Settings > Data usage > tap app that you'd like to block > check "Restrict background data" option.

Android 5(lollipop) disables 3rd party apps to toggle mobile data. You have to root the phone for making it work.

We have been selected as a Google I/O 2011 Developer Sandbox partner, for its innovative design and advanced technology.

Whats new

    ★ bugs fixed and optimization
    ★ tap Net Blocker notification icon will open Net Blocker app and scroll the last foreground app item to the top of list
    ★ For Android 5+ device, no more converting Net Blocker to a system app for toggling mobile data. It now works on a rooted device without you to convert it to a system app
    ★ updated FAQ page. Settings > About > FAQ
    ★ require WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS permission as some devices need it to toggle mobile data

Amjad Ali

Block All Button Needed Add a button or check box which can block and unblock all apps in single click to save time. i have around 100 apps installed in my mobile, i takes too much time to select all manually. I wud give 5 stars if u add this button

Bernie Rey Barsomo

Good! The app functions as described. It would be better to add a feature to automatically turn it on when wifi/data connection was turned on and turn the app off whenever internet connection was also terminated.

abdulatif Zeno

Note 3 It does not work well. Not blocking telegram by wifi or 4g. So it is useless

Rko Gaurav

Very less powerful. Dr.web VPN is much better than this it stops the internet when we open that particular app but dr. web doesn't allow that particular app to use Internet. that work amazing.

Arrie Theunissen

Amazing Thx to this app i got rid of some annoying ads.

Zahraa Ali Zaid

Didn't do the job I wanted to prevent whatsapp from using the internet but couldn't

Vikash Pandey

I like it Really it's great. For long time I want this type of app. Really it great and easy to use. Go for it guy's.

Amit Mehariya

its useless when I on this app and starting to play a blocked game it off my internet so why I want to use this???simply off the internet and play that game.

snehdeep verma

Using lollipop. ...just tell me how to convert this app to system app

Sarvesh Singh

Brian Sims

Mohamad Rizal Fahlevi

It work's Does exactly what it said....

Yasar Baigh

Its not working with 4.1 Its not working with 4.1 version

Dan Haze

It has errors. It blocked my Internet connection and every time I unblock Internet Mobile and WiFi data ? this application block them again. I'm disappointed with these errors that is why I uninstalled it.

mohammad AL montshri

good i hope it have sort

John Waqa

Best app blocker Recommended for blocking application!!

tom tray

Arigato sam lu This is the application I've been searching for decades, save lots of my data ,once again thanx for the apps

Awais Shahzad

<3 it It works

Harsh sharma

Worked well

Shaneel Chandra

Sporadic Sorry, it works on and off. unreliable.

Micky Brand

Great! This app does exactly what it says it should do. I have blocked a lot of unwanted forceware which I can't uninstall and restricted many apps that ate away at my mobile data. The battery life has improved 3 fold and mobile data usage is down considerably. This app will earn the extra star if it can block apps running in the background too. Otherwise, great app.

A Google User

Fantastic, one of my app essentials! :) This app is simple, straight forward and gets the job done. I already use 2x Battery from the developer and I absolutely love this app! :) I also like that the developer is always there to help and really quick in responding to any inquiries, I would totally recommend his apps to my friends and this one is no exception, well done!

Minh NN

Sometimes not working I used to use Noroot firewall, but that app is not active on reboot, then I install this app which restarts well, but during its guard, it fails sometimes and the blocked app still connects internet while sometimes it can't. Strange!

Aditya Thombre

JST WHAT I NEEDED This is a great app. whenever i connected to any wifi or turned on my data all those whatsapp messages would flow in and the senders would get two ticks showing that i am using my device but now i don't have to reply anyone when i don't fell like doing it. Blocking some other applications has also increased my wifi and mobile data speed for the application which i am using currently. GR8 JOB

david frost

Working very well for me and saving me top-up money to unknown apps etc, recommended a try if you rely on wi-fi a lot.

Amgad Fawzy

Hmmm ? We can't say it's a specialized net blocker all what it does is that it turns off wifi/data while a specific app is opened so at least background downloads are disabled ?. What's the use of it if I could just turn off wifi/data before opening the app.

Janice Burrows

Great app! This blocks internet access to an app which has appeared on my phone which I did not download and anti virus detects as a threat but can't remove.

Jim Proske

Password at start-up. I can't use the app on Samsung galaxy S5. It immediately bypasses instructions and asks for a password. None of the typical pass codes or my codes work. It is useless.

Kajanthan Thangavel

Good But can't use two apps (blocked and not block) same time.

Jules Frost

I know its not working I know its not working all the time. I use super fast charger and its managing to download its adverts even though its blocked.... Any suggestions. This app does not work at this point try else where

Jennifer Wright

Used for years I love this app! Im using for ebook readers nd many more apps. It doesn't block background apps that run data but thats not why i got it. I really recommend this for anyone who wants to restrict data usage.

Nilesh Raikar

Improve I don't want to get notification that tap to start network.. This facility only in app inside.. So no one can know that I restricted internet... Then it will be the best app ever.....thanks

doug mitchell

Nope As stated, it won't work with Android 5.0+ for turning off data usage, so no value unless you have rooted your phone.

Tanay Tiwari

Good, add more features Sufficient app, important thing- no need to be a routed phone, can add some more features like asking for permissions in special things

Arpin Gajjar

It not working Its not actually stop internet data in my HTC #Desire816. Worst App.

Brian Flanagan

my wish granted! Great app. Convenient access to Netblocker from the Android notification tray, whereupon Netblocker now jumps to last foreground app in its alphabetized app list (tho Netblocker scrollbar then not grabable). Developer responsive. Thanx!

Josh McLemore

Doesnt work after os update I updated to 5.0 and it doesn't work any more for blocking network

Christian Laurent

Useful. Does not actually block individual applications. It disconnects the Internet connection when selected applications are initialized.

sherri morris

No gd freezes up and does not block the Internet

Bryan Mazey

No longer works since updating to lollipop

varun n

Not working on my lenovo S8 tab

Michael M

Theres no option ti block all! I want to block all except for one app.

Larry Winters

Going for it let's see if it works

yakub momin

Good Its worked correctly.

Enrique Mota

Lollipop 5.0 Every since i updated the phone by accident. This app hasnt been working at all. It used to work so perfect. R the makers going to make a update for the 5.0 lollipop.

Adarsh Gupta

Not working on lollipop ?


Great App. Great app for Android. This app is required for Windows phones

sundara vadivel

Very useful

Suhaimi Muhamad

Suggestions Can i give you a suggestion to restrict background data also, because there apps that use background data example like whatsapp, it will be great if you can do so, for both data and wifi, because on the phone it only have for data network only.

Fathurahman Alafasy

Thanks very much bro.
