Have used for some time now! -Good app buT- Needs more settings.... Why does the App get shut down so often!?? Can't u add Administrative Rights? And it's always a nuisance to always have to go bk into the App to turn it bk on! Sometimes i kill it in the Notification bar when I want to shut it down! And then bk in ya go to Start App again! -You should Add a Stop/Restart widget for Home screen use...

Much faster than previous version. Can you add an indiviual data counter for each app going through firewall?

Leo Ros K

Super Control which app can use network and even control apps permission truth mobile or Wi-Fi net, use one or both. Then I can stop some apps connect via mobile network but still connect when Wi-Fi is around. If suspected app suddenly want to connect internet it can't until I give it permission. Simple and Works fine. Only coins it is to easy to disconnect Firewall accidentally from notification bar

Arsenic K

Nice for us warranty valid players. Needs a specific application choice for each specific like (one time allow access, user permissions to ask each time about running perm,temp,or none.)

David Cousins

Very nicely done app This firewall is perfect and runs so smoothly, nice job?

Brandon Ozard

I used this APP for over a year until Android Lollypop broke it. Developer's please fix this APP, it worked fine with Kit Kat, but now it blocks MMS messaging when connected to wireless data and wireless networks at the same time. I have spent hours trouble shooting this issue down to this APP.

Celina Thomas

Good for controlling data usage Works great. Keeps my phone from using too much data. A little more set up than I could handle on my own, but my computer savvy friend helped me out.

Andreas Kostyrka

A really cool idea But it still has certain performance issues, it increased the ping time on my home wifi from 20ms to 250ms.

Kennie M-Kittredge

Easy setup Looks good but reboot tablets and will not start firewall "auto start", I push start firewall in apps..

A Google User

Needs Export To .csv abilty for log Great app; however isp's require logs to address cyber attackers.. Also should cover IPv6 and ipv4/6 tunnels.. IOW make it magic without root :)

austin carpenter

Awesome! This app works! It has alerted me to several viruses.

Joan O'Hagan

Nice idea keeps crashing

omg aa

must have

এবং আভে

Fine but I can't use VPN and no root firewall same time. . please fix it.

Kaviona Edwards

Uyvjg Did not try yet

Qamar Syed

Few issues Uses too much ram and drains the battery and no LTE support

Curtis Finney

Its pretty good.

Justin Cram

please this deserves five stars *****, but no export & import rules big issue for me, I've over thousands of apps fully configured installed & uninstalled apps that I've created in depth rules for every single one of them! I've been huge supporter of NoRoot Firewall from the beginning! please add abilities to backup and restore all rules global included. it would make it much easier to recover or to share amongst each other! maybe if I could suggest maybe add-in a rules sharing market or predefined geo location blocking! please see these app as examples, AUTOMATEIT USER MARKET, XPOSED USER MARKET, XPRIVACY SHARE Market. make the add-in optional maybe that's the premium purchase addition. you've created the dream firewall APP OF THE CENTURY, LET'S KEEP IMPROVING IT AND MOVE FORWARD AND WORKING together TO MAKE IT THEE ABSOLUTELY BEST FIREWALL TO GOTO & REFER OR RECOMMEND TO OTHERS!

Mjahed O.

Good but It's exceeding the screen consumption in battery history...

imu sh

perfect must have app :)

Tauhidul islam

Really great This is a great useful app.I love it....

harmanjotsingh bhatia

Surperb you are great guys this is best in Google play

Galina #

Amazon Why application in journal shows that it open amazon links?

Alexey Gugnin

Very nice! With this one you actually can have control. Must have!

Guy Baconniere

Little Snitch for Android This App should be on all Android by default. If you implement IPv6 (for LTE), notification a la Little Snitch (Once, Until Quit, Forever) and Ads blacklist you will get 5 stars award!

abdulkareem ibn neville

So far so good Very nice and simple to use. I like the connection notifications which is something that Mobiwol is missing.

Enrique Eglesias

Best free app no in app purchase Best thing about the app is giving notification when any application ask for access. Have a little bit problem Cz this app is not fast than other app but very effective. Thanks for helping us without any donations.

Ahmed Lotfy

Well it is great but Well it is great but I keep getting notifications from Facebook I don't know how please reply

aaron acosta

select-all feature needed Select-all feature would be nice, this way i can give access to all my apps faster.

Martin J

Awesomesauce ! Feature request: sound alert when an app is awaiting confirmation.

Ionut R

Too many problems While the firewall is enabled: 1. Nothing is loading for a GPRS network 2. Vodafone Mobile wifi android app cannot connect to wireless router. 3. Often battery drain occurs

Littlest Toucan

Easy To Use. Easy and effective.

Rio Wong

Please offer an app filter for easy lookup app Compress access log. Some blocked apps keep accessing internet severely which swarm the access log. Wish to ease user's eyes on the log for such condition to filter out specific apps optionally

Richard Griffin

Good program Like the firewall and have no complaints. Seems to be working and hope it keeps me safe

Tom Thumb

I've noticed a big difference.

André Manzolli

Best free This is the best free no root needed firewall I ever see for Android. Good simple interface that can be improved.

Michael O'Leary

Love it must have

Dirmansyah Lubis

Usb tethering does not work ... ... if NRFW is active.

Daniel Epperson

Not bad I dont like the fact when the device fires up, and you do not immediately open device, your firewall by default is not on, until u give it the ok. Otherwise, i havent tested it because it's on android so i dont know the real effectiveness of this, along with the fact they are linux based apps and so on. Im familiar with p. o s windows instead. For free (nothing really is) id say good job devs / and device not being rooted.

Riz wan

After reboot whole App should be run in background. I have to manually start vpn network after rebooting, it should be auto after apply first time. please add mobile traffic control beside network traffic to save battery life also. Previous version does not require any permission why this version require photo access.

Rio Wong

Used over 200MB memory. Could it be decreased? Please offer an app filter for easy lookup app. Some blocked apps keep accessing internet severely which swarm the access log. Wish to ease user's eyes on the log for such condition to filter out specific apps optionally

Tehri Sami

Add feature Pl add feature to stop services that run in background thats not going online but consuming battery. Hope this feature will be added in next update. Sometime app stops and icon dissappeared from title bar. I have to manually start. Thanks

Chuk Robertson

It just works flawlessly A bit annoying (easy though) to set up as every app needs permission to operate through the firewall but what do you expect. Great app, don't give bad reviews if you don't understand what the app is doing and how it works. Thanks dev! Keep it up!

Wilton McGhee

Great App Really simple and useful app. The only really annoying things that I find are the request to effectively start the firewall after you have given it permission to auto start, that's dumb other apps auto stay without proper permissions so why can't this app? Some connections must still be going through, Linux kernel calls home and I don't see it being blocked (it is blocked by other firewalls), and there are others. Otherwise great app.

Tony Harrison

The app does a very good job of blocking Internet access to apps that I don't want to connect. This saves my data plan, battery, and memory. However, it does not detect all of my apps.

Terry Roose

firewall this one works for real. remember when u install a new program that u need permissions for it before it will run. good work guys. this app should be a stock system app on all phones.

David Polasek

Seems to work but..... Description says it reports crashes (which is fine) but it actually connects every few minutes unless you deny it. If denied it will continually try every few seconds. I unistalled when the count reached 35.

Frank White

Good app Has many uses it has been working I see it blocks some apps from the net refresh the app once a day

Littlest Toucan

Easy To Use. But now its getting buggy. Had to remove it, kept giving me VPN messages.

Le Cash

The app itself is pretty stable and pretty awesome at blocking certain ip's and hosts, really is super customisable. Reason for 4* instead of 5* is because in my opinion it needs a few more settings. 1st: needs allow all except blocked app rules. 2nd: allow all except Global rules and 3rd: allow all except app and global rules. If it had those 3 then it would make it much easier to customise rules for each app and have ultimate control over every connection your android makes. But the app itself is awesome and i'd highly recommend this one over all the others, as it fully free and much more customisable.

Ralph Bigio

Gives ability to block ip, but only individually. Where is the bulk list of IPs? Where is the file? Where is the ability to subscribe to IP lists? Devs, I would like an answer on how to fix this!

Peter Stindl

Looks promising but I still don't know the difference between no setting and a red cross.

Christopher king

Works great Only issue is for some reason the pre and post filters seem to be reversed...

George Dimitropoulos

Very good How about working with orbot, so that when apps option is selected, noroot firewall goes through there as well? How about setting traffic volume limits per app? Five stars plus pay for these!

Harry Whitecross

Firewall Beta Started out better than the alpha version, but has become increasingly obstructive of phone operations, so i'll just without this one as an add on.

Landon Walker

It seems pretty effective for blocking traffic without rooting. It would rate higher for me if you could allow access once using a single click. The allow button marks the app as always allow.

کتیبه سپید

if you think I create a VPN for using your firewall, you are in mistake! I need an app to disable connection, no an app for connecting!

Chris Nguyen

Peace of mind Like it. But for nearly 1 yr the app without update so it oftens turning off automatically. Uninstalled

m suthor

Great firewall Though menus not readily modifiable, great app to block and monitor. Suggest, from pull down menu to open App. Thanks developer.

Cn Y

Thank you for creating this app! Fantastic! I was wondering if there's a way to block all the apps at once rather than having to click on each app individually to change the permissions? It would be great to offer up the option so that the user can block everything at once, and then only have to click on those apps that he/she wants to allow through the firewall. Thanks! I wrote/asked the same question on the non-beta version.

privacy nexus

look no further now this is control! [my China 809T is NOT rooted, yet I have complete control]

Michael O'Leary

Needs auto block at boot so it stops data use at boot Love it must have

Christina Perez

Simple but effective for one that doesn't require rooting

Andres Meluso

Great performance I tried few firewall apps using vpn, but most will drop the internet speed. I tested using Ookla speed test. This one actually stays almost the same. Great job K.

rajesh krishnan

Could you make it start automatically after a reboot at least in rooted devices?

Vibhor Sharma

Nice But some issue hot create hotspot when its on

Ted Churchill

Doesn't work for hotspotting Hello, could you possibly fix this app for allowing internet via hotspot? What it is currently doing is just limiting the connection so I cannot access the internet via my laptop. Thanks for the help, if this is fixed I can buy any other apps you guys sell so you can get some money for your efforts. Thanks

AbdRozaq Iwashokun

Awesome Does the job, though might require some tech knowhow along the way.

Łukasz Błaszczyk

Proxy problems The app doesn't get along whit the standard proxy. Not all connections appear when the proxy is configured.

Matthew Dobbs

ZTE Stratos LTE straight talk Works great with adguard HTTP & VPN firewalled up now

Dennis Faucher

Works, saves $$ on data I recently switched to Project Fi, which I love. Data is prorated and I am a heavy data user. This app keeps my monthly cell phone bill under $25.

Van Jone

Crashes came back ((( Non-beta crashed a lot and then often could not restart automatically leaving me open. It used to be great Beta util one day I upgraded to Lollipop 5.1. Crashes are here, not often, but still enough for some buggers to pull their wonderful ads. Which defeats the purpose of keeping at control. The app wasnt updated for long and I seem loosing my faith on it. -1 star for crashes and -1 star for incompatibility with AP mode

Phil Shine

Great protection One of the best firewalls I have found. No need to configure the program for outgoing blocks. The firewall will inform you as soon as anything tries to go online. Has saved me a heap in data usage because of programs trying to contact base. Can't wait for the next stable version to be released. A big thank you to the devs.

Khakim Assidiqi

Really love this apps, but.. but I tired to allow any application every it started to connect for first time, you should to add default internet permission, for example drfault permision allowed, so We no need to allow each app. Works well for blocking BBM Advertisement, good job ?

Tom Catter

DOES WAY MORE THAN EXPECTED! It's an Android FW--upon which, you, the end user, have 100%, C-O-M-P-L-E-T-E & TOTAL CONTROL. The FW performs honestly & leaves me alone while doin it's job. TYVVVVVVM!!!!!

Mark Sizzel

Excellent except... I'd love to add import rules - I want to use custom hosts file to block redundant traffic, also i saw a feature that allows only foreground data but i dont miss that much

Ashish Kumar

This app automatically cresh This app not good ,its automatically cresh and u r can not provide new update or support, I am install this app at 5 time but every time they r cresh,I am using Google Nexus 5 and OS is marshmallow 6.0.1

Robert Arbogast

Absolutely excellent experience on a unlocked android samsung galaxy s4 running lollipop 5.1 Great job developer's! !! It's very nice to be able to have control over the apps that you do not use or constantly run ,when you don't use them. Excellent control and ease of use is perfect.


Firewall problem Firewall is stopped working by smart censorship in Iran. I hope the programer solve this problem in the next version.

Shamsudeen S

No root It's frustrating to me..... Not working for my phone it keep telling me trash

Sr. Zé Alguém

1) Why need sd card r/w permission? 2) Too much retries for sending the [crash] reports or whatever, when it is self-blocked; moreover, I can't see any crash. Non-beta version is less intrusive.
