Welcome to official support page for AFWall+

Quote:

Disclaimer - As Usual. I'll not take any responsible if something goes wrong when using AFWall+

Introduction
Quote:

AFWall+ is an improved version of DroidWall(front-end application for the powerful iptables Linux firewall). It allows you to restrict which applications are permitted to access your data networks (2G/3G and/or Wi-Fi and while in roaming).Since the original author of Droidwall
discontinued the project, I decided to keep the app instead of Avast Firewall. I'll continue to add more features as I can.

Android L Preview Support
* Tested with Android L Preview and works fine.
Please do the following for logs

It works fine, but highlights in red makes it difficult to read. Maybe it would be better just to have red font for system apps without highlight. Of course, this is only cosmetics. Will post further as I use it now as main firewall.

Great man, and all thanks goes to you. Avast was killing my phone with firewall enabled. Let me know if you need any particular feature tested.

@vault1965, Added custom color options to highlight system apps from preferences and removed the RED background. Hope that helps. Thanks for your inputs.

here are some fr
Hey, very good app. I like apps that doesn't consume much resources on my devices and that's why i prefer this app here.

Here are some feature requests, i know the list is pretty big but most of them are important:

* translation support (e.g. to translate the app into german)
* google play store support (when the app are nearly "final")
* saving/loading profiles
* select all / select none / invert selection
* backup and restore rules (the most important point for me)
* IPv6 support (also vey important)
* Tasker/Locale Integration
* Orbot (Tor) support (because of some problems to connect into it)
* an Option for SSL/TLS only connection
* tablet interface support
* special rules for VPN



Here are some bugs or problems i found (some of theme are small and easy to fix i think)
* Apps can bypass droidwalls whitelist if started before droidwall upon boot
* On Jelly Bean the user interface looks different (a picture above explain it better), maybe remove the black background and the red one, and make it so that only the text have different colors and not the background
* The Widget needs to much space, the icon takes 4x1 for me (see screenshot)
* The notification about new apps only show one, but if you install right after that another app nothing was shown up
* In the help dialog there is an google code link, seems that that link does not work maybe you change this to the github repro

Thank you for that great app!
