Een firewall. Ook voor Android nodig als je klein beetje security-minded bent.

To use, 1. I rooted phone with http://www.droidforums.net/forum/android-forum/156103-nerdslogic-resource-thread-multiple-phones.html Note that the -widget- button did not work until AFTER I had enabled the firewall from the Application button -> settings -> Enable. Now the widget enables and disables the firewall... very confusing, just glad to have it working finally.

Droidwall is a decent firewall and gets the job done. Much the same as the rest of the firewalls available but lets you control the on/off state of the firewall. It doesn't provide information on what apps are trying to access the network (either via Wifi or 3/4G); which makes troubleshooting access a headache. Another huge problem is the lack of logging and traffic sent by app and connection. It's cool that it's free but maybe they'll release a better paid version that incorporates basic necessary firewall tools.

What firewall? I had alway been under the impression that a firewall was supposed to block incoming and out going traffic. This one does not work. I logged for less than 5 minutes and 7 apps that were not whitelisted sent over 30.5k packets. I traced the ip addresses to addresses allover the world. Major security risks revealed. Traffic in and out of DSP protected content and media folders. Not blocked not secure. Allowing data to be gobbled up. Had to delete 12 gigs of my sd card because it was being shared.

Works... most of the time Some apps managed to connect. I would like a profiles option. Other than that I like it!
