    The app works great so far but there's a few improvements I'd like to see made if possible. Sometimes the app takes too long to check for root access and i have to close and reopen the app. An option to auto tick the WiFi box for newly installed apps would also be nice. Applying a new rule means the app has to update ALL the rules and not just one. I like to switch rules a lot so for me this is very time consuming. Overall it's a great app with few annoyances.

    On version 3.0.3, still cannot make persistent notification icon go away. When enabled, persistent notification is a shield, when disabled it is a white ball. Developer says white ball is from Google. That may be, HOWEVER, neither existed in v2.9 and earlier, so persistent notification icon is due to some change within the app between 2.9 and 3.0. Based on other reviews, these changes should be reverted back to how the old version handled things. I'm glad I still have a copy of 2.9.

    AFWall+ is probably one of the most important apps on my phone. I like how I can leave an app's wireless capabilities off by default, essentially sandboxing it before allowing it to access the internet. My primary use case, however, is disabling access to data on my media apps. Without AFWall+, I would have drained all the data on my limited phone plan countless times. Definitely earned my donation, I've saved way more than $5.

    Incredible app. Finally paid for the Pro version after years and years of use. Worth every penny. Extremely customisable if you know your iptables. Otherwise, simple to use for beginners. Its amazing what apps and services are trying to 'call home' for no real good reason.

    This app has worked very well in the past however over the last few updates it's been causing me problems with tethering not working until i open AFWall reapply rules. Using Galaxy S3 and LOS 14.1 with std kernel and LOS SU addon. I'm not 100% certain yet but i may have found the issue. Option in settings under Binaries/DNSProxy defaults to Auto should detect Android ver >= 4.3 but doesn't. Setting to "Enable DNS via netd" and tethering/DNS works again. Maybe LOS uses different UID for netd?

    5 stars for version (up to and including) 3.1.0 0 stars for versions beyond that. I am not telling "please fix it", I am telling "please pay attention before release". I understand that there are many devices... and configurations... and ROOT methods... but please revert to 3.1.0 code and start over again :) 3.2.0 broke the log functionality, oh, badly. 3.3.0 firewall (purpose of the app) is not functional after restart, log is buggy as ever (after 3.1)

    Update: please make it stop auto refreshing during games!! It causes constant disconnects. Make it detect game modes. For what it does, great app. But it will randomly reapply settings in the middle of mobile games, which causes 15 second disconnects. Very bad for competitive gaming. No way to "mute" it or have it recognize game mode.. developer failed to respond to emails...

    Great app but too many vital features are hidden/disabled. When I first got the app, it was blocking nothing. Then I discovered that I need to manually enable VPN blocking from settings. Then I kept repeatedly disabling the firewall while trying to apply settings. Afterwards I discovered that there is a setting I can enable to prevent that from happening. Why are all these features disabled by default?

    Great Firewall, but it keeps applying the rules every few minutes and always when I don't need it! I don't have any app that could mess up AFWall+'s rules, so it shouldn't do that, but it does! Clrwaing data and cache, reinstalling doesn't work. Out of frustration I DISABLE IT, WHICH I WOULD NEVER DO!

    flush flush flush rules all day 3 times after boot. theres boot setting then once after login and then 1min later. Nice but leaks a lot when VPN is being switched or stucked. Also needs refreshes often, frozen on boot often, so many problems. I wish android had exception for Lan as their blocking function really works unlike the firewalls.

    I guess it works. But i th8nk its overrated. I have root. But this program doesn't seem to do any better than NoRoot. Worse actually. Because it doesnt notify when an app or service tries to call out. It should. So you can click on the notification and see THAT app in the list. This app lacks features that are typical for a firewall. Pretty bad since its a root app.

    Question for the developper : Firewalls such as AFWall+ or Netguard are regularly used on Android to attempt to block network access from a specific app but these do not reliably work. Apps can use IPC to bypass the restrictions. If you cut off network access to an app, it will not prevent the app from sending an intent to another app (such as the browser) to make it make the same connection.Many apps already do this unintentionally with things such as with the download manager.

    after applying rules, it randomly applys itself in the background as i get a little popup from magisk that it was "granted superuser rights" and it causes me to lose connection in applications with rules for this app. it auto refreshes and I don't understand why! other than that terrible flaw, it's really good.

    Works well, blocks ads and other unnecessary traffic. But it would be useful to include some default options or guide on system services, because it took me a while to figure out all the ambiguous services without which nothing works in android.

    Edit: found you can reverse the whitelist to allow. Much better thank you! Will test for a few days and donate. !!! The application is good but the rules need more flexibility. Like enable all applications by default and only apply rules to disable. Currently everything is disabled and each app needs to apply a rule. On my phone this takes ~3mins Everytime i install or uninstall anything. Very cumbersome imo. Other wise the application worked great and does preform well.

    They let you export settings and lead you to believe you can simply import them if something goes wrong, but when you try to import they let you know its only the paid version that can do that. How can someone trust a firewall that deceives people into purchasing their app? There is a special place in a special place for these shady.....

    Will not let your VPN connect. So you have to disable this firewall (allowing all the apps you've blocked to connect) to start your VPN then enable firewall. Dev doesn't care and the paid version has same issues.
