There’s no native firewall app for Android. As a result of that any app, that has the permission to access to the Internet can thief data (suspicious). Fortunately Google play rich of free and paid apps. Now we can use free Android firewall apps to block selected apps internet connectivity.
Earlier post I introduced DroidWall and Avast mobile security apps. Both of these free apps capable of blocking selected application WiFi and/or data connection. This post I’m going to introduce another three new Android firewall apps.
These applications modify your phone’s iptables file. Therefore all of these Android firewall applications need the root permission. If your Android device still not rooted, you can use Unlock Root tutorial or you can follow our device specific tutorials.
This is one of the best and the free firewall app for Android. This app UI (user interface) identical to the DroidWall app, but this one has more features and work with newer version of Android. User can select one app or multiple apps to to block list. In addition to that user can block apps accessing IPv6, VPN and Roaming connections. We can’t see that feature in any other applications. There are two types of apps Free and paid. If you like to support developer, you can go for the premium version. Android Firewall app premium version price lower than other apps, but this app rich in features. When I’m testing this app free version its not support ads.
