    Running on rooted, deodexed 4.12. Lots of time the apps that is blocked still managed to connect and sent data. Dont know what is wrong with this.

    Disable Internet access for any app you want to 3g/wifi or just Whitelist a few of apps which you want to have Internet access and automatically block all other apps, simple and easy.

    JEDES MAL wenn ich von WLAN auf Mobiles Internet (und umgekehrt) wechseln will muss ich danach in der App wieder die Regeln wieder "Anwenden" weil es irgendwie immer nur entweder für WLAN oder Mobiles Internet aktiviert und das andere sperrt!

    There should be a policy for the loopback interface. It doesn't make sense to allow lan access but block loopback access.
