Firewall - Option to block background data


#1

Hi there,
Thanks for a great app.

I suggest to add an option to the firewall to block background data per app. I mean while the app isn’t used on screen.

I think that can save a lot of data and gives you better control of your data.

Thanks,
Sahar

Great idea! Thanks for your feedback.

I think with most Android versions though you can already do this with your settings so that’s why we didn’t launch with this feature.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your reply.

Actually, it’s far from being comfortable or even usable when it comes to android settings. You can’t, for example, to set an app to work only when connected to WiFi and only when in the foreground.

I think a feature like this can complete GlassWire offering and provide full control over the data.

As an example you can check:

InternetGuard Data Saver Firewall (I get an error message when I try to add a link to Google Play store)

and

NetGuard - no-root firewall

I hope you can manage to develop this option for future versions.
