PeerBlock For Android lets you control who your phone 'talks to' on the Internet.
By selecting appropriate lists of 'known bad' computers, you can block communication with advertising or spyware oriented servers,
computers monitoring your p2p activities, computers which have been 'hacked', even entire countries!
They can't get in to your phone, and your phone won't try to send them anything either.

And best of all, it's free!

Keep in mind that I'm not a member of the PeerBlock team, I just wanted PeerBlock for phone
You're able to grab the lists from so you can start blocking those evil hosts
To add lists to PeerBlock create a new directory in the root of the sdcard (not external sdcard)
Called 'PeerBlockLists' here should be all the text files
Everytime you added a new/updated list to your PeerBlockLists please press the 'Rebuild cache blocklist' and reboot so that new hosts can be blocked

Root is required for XPosed to be installed
Use at your own risk!

Block million of hosts (upto billions)
Add unlimited amount of block lists
Allow HTTP/HTTPS Traffic when PeerBlock is enabled, this will make a security hole though so better if u keep it off
Block All Traffic (Paranoid Mode) every single application in android will not have internet
Block DNS - Block DNS Requests
Block the 'Ad' Keyword in host names to give a better success rate for blocking ad's
Have a history list of every application that connected to a host
Block a hostname/subnet/ip address from the history

How To use
1. Install XPosed Framework
2. Install PeerBlock For Android
3. Create a directory in the sdcard called "PeerBlockLists"
4. Go into XPosed Framework Installer and enable "PeerBlock For Android"
5. Reboot your device
6. Now go to the website
7. Take any list you wish for example,
8. Press the Update button to download the list (or copy the Update URL into your browser to download it)
9. Now simply copy/paste the .txt file into the sdcard in the folder PeerBlockLists
10. Go into the PeerBlock app and tick "Block DNS" and "Block 'Ad' Keyword in the Host name"
11. Go to the second tab "Block Lists" now hit the "Rebuild cache blocklist"
12. Reboot your device and enjoy

How to block the goverment
1. Go to your sdcard and open the folder 'PeerBlock'
2. Open the file HostNames.txt (if not exist create it)

    Works great! A must have app. Only issue is you have to delete the settings file from your phone every once in a while. Is there a fix for the Yolo sever ping test issue? Anyway to block it? I can't stop using this app.

    I've added Level 1 block list, reloaded cache and restarted, but no hosts are being blocked at all. I enabled paranoid, unchecked HTTP(S) and checked all the rest.

    Hundreds of connections per hour going to a "test" yolo server via Google services. This was supposed to be a test server that the Dev said he removed months ago. Once this was identified and questioned by users in the XDA thread, there has been no respon

    I'm a pretty tech savvy guy, i put a few txts in the folder, it says its blocking 2billion+ IPs but not one is shown in blocked history. Bummer. Hoping for an update of some sort!

    Useless app where you have to find and add the lists yourself only to find that you have to pay in order to obtain them
