I was wondering , is there any App (unrooted/rooted) or Xposed module through which i could block a certain App's Data or WiFi access?

I would expect XPrivacy to do that.

i have AppOps already installed,,
but there is no blocking data or wifi access of a particular app..!
for example.. take Google+
the options are : Location, Read contacts, Modify Contacts, Media volume, Ring volume, Camera, Record audio, Post notification, Modify settings, Keep awake..
thts it..! No option saying "Block 3G data/wifi" ..!


Checking Xprivacy, will report back..!
thanks

I use Droidwall from the Playstore. Root required. You can make a white list of apps who are allowed to make use of data or wifi.

I prefer avast. Its free but needs root. It lets you block per app WiFi or mobile access and it has antivirus scanner.
