It's not working I used it because I didn't want some of my apps connect to Internet. But AFWALL+ couldn't stop them. My android version is 4.4.2

My app is blocked by the fw but nothing is logged. And how to control incoming connections?

L720T 4.4.2 I chose this firewall because it had more recent updates vs the firewalls people were recommending on XDA, which haven't been updated in like a year. I definitely like this app and will be sticking to it. I wish more people would root their devices since there's many benefits in doing so, but people are too afraid to 'void their warranties'... Most people are oblivious to Android and think Google will protect them like Apple.
