***FAQS***

Why does Mobiwol No Root Firewall show as if using a VPN connection?

This is superficial. We've used technology available to us from within the VPN packaging module offered by Android to be able to gain visibility to your applications' network activities and apply firewall rules without having to ask for root permissions like other Android Firewall apps. However, no actual VPN connection is being made, no data is being sent externally by our application, and we do not tamper with the security of your personal data, so you can continue using your apps with peace of mind, and confidence that you will not end up with a higher than usual data bill at the end of the month.

Why Can't I accept the VPN Prompt?

You will need to select the checkbox first and then the button becomes enabled. If you are having problems selecting the checkbox, it is likely that you have another app that creates an overlay on the active screen that is preventing you from selecting the checkbox.

Why does Mobiwol top the data usage chart?

It’s an illusion. Mobiwol uses your device’s VPN package to create a firewall. As every data packet sent or received by your apps passes through the VPN, all the incoming and outgoing data traffic gets attributed to Mobiwol.

The good part, however, is that Mobiwol now comes with its own Data Usage feature which allows you to check data usage for each app. To view the usage, choose Data Usage from the home screen.

The only firewall which actually blocks the internet connections absolutely reliably. I tested almost all root firewalls and they all did let ads leak through and fully blocked apps did appear in data usage. But Mobiwol does the trick. The only downside is that is uses quite a bit of the battery. In my case it makes top of the list with 6% of all usage on my Galaxy S5 CM 12.1. I think it was after a recent update. Thus only 3 Stars. Please Mobiwol fix the battery problem.

If only it would stay active... I imagine this would be a very helpful app, but I cannot, for the life of me, get the firewall to stay active. That kind of defeats the purpose.

Amazing Does what it says, we have option to block or allow background and foreground data. My phone is a firewall now :-)
