Hi,
I'm facing one particular issue. I had used noroot firewall in my nexus 5 unrooted device to limit data access. However, recently, google applications like gmail,youtube,play store etc was not able to access my wifi (showing connection failed) whereas it can access data connection. However, using Chrome i can access wifi connection successfully, so I believe its not a hardware issue. Same is the case with google now, it doesn't work using wifi, but works in mobile data. I believe its because of some setting change caused by noroot firewall. Please help.

Using a great firewall requires root permissions imo so I suggest you to root and use AFWall+.

I tried uninstalling and resetting the phone. Still didn't work. However, I installed the app again and gave permissions to all apps again using Mobile data and now its working fine
