    Been using this great app for 3years now and its been good but lately its shutting down my connection altogether no google play store Firefox etc... So for now till I figure out what's causing it I will move to avast where it has its own firewall . Pity really AFwall is my fav app on android.

    GS4, 4.3, Stock(ish) v6 ROM, KT kernel - XPrivacy + AFWall gives ME total control of all permissions & data.

Awesome combo to keep Big Brother, NSA, nosy devs,
