The HoneyBadger Firewall helps you eliminate unwanted data usage and fight against walware, and even block adds! This is done with the Linux firewall IPTables. It provides the following features:

- Block/Allow specified applications
- Block/Allow specified IP addresses or domain names
- Block/Allow can be specified for WiFi or Cell network traffic
- Automatically generate rules to block known malicious sites from an online database. You can do this manually be pressing a button, or select in the preferences to update every 24 hours.
- View log of all network traffic, including whether it was blocked or allowed. This can be enabled or disabled in the preferences.
- Export and Import rules from CSV file.
- Firewall can be enabled or disabled quickly and easily.

*If you have issues on the Apps Tab with the app not responding or locking up your device, check the "Disable Icons" option in the settings. This will significantly reduce the amount of work your device has to do on this tab.

***ROOT IS REQUIRED***

***Requires grep and wget for certain features. You can get these as a part of busybox, which can be installed by apps such as Busybox Installer.***

    Let "blocked" apps connect except occasionally when it blocked *everything* and forced me to disable it to connect with any app.

    Very good and not as bloated as the other iptables GUIs, but... it doesn't apply the rules after a reboot. Everything works fine until you reboot. Nexus 4 with rooted+busyboxed 4.3 stock.

    I'm running HTC evo 4g and when I install this it freezes up my phone. Have to uninstall so my phone will work. When that's fixed I will use this.
