***ROOT REQUIRED*** If you don’t know what root is, please search for “How to root android” in the Internet.
AFWall+ is an improved version of DroidWall(front-end application for the powerful iptables Linux firewall). It allows you to restrict which applications are permitted to access your data networks (2G/3G and/or Wi-Fi and while in roaming).
Note: If DroidWall/Avast doesn’t work on your device, AFWall+ also will not work.
I will not be able to push any new versions for month or 2, as I have other important works to be completed on my personal and professional front. Please send out an email or log an issue on github. I’ll surely respond to the queries whenever I get some time.
