Marcel, please dont give up!!!
I like your project!
I like your project!
Update: It seems you need to let the "show system apps" enabled for this to work. If you disable the "show system apps" it wont wort anymore, even if you dont deactivate the apps themselfs.I have a problem using adguard. I now switched to a Pixel 6 with GrapheneOS which uses Vanidum browser. I installed NetGuard like always but it wont block ads. Its only on Vandium browser. If I install DuckDuckBrowser it works perfectly.
I disabled "use safe DNS" in Vandium but it still doesnt work. Because the fact it works with other brwosers, I assume the problem is within Vandium and not within the GrapheneOS or NetGuard.
Edit: Solved. I didnt activated Vandium in the NetGaurd app. I didnt thougt about doing it bc it wasnt listet in the apps. This browser is listed as a system app. I didnt thought about this anyways bc I made Adguard block all traffic except the ones I allowed but Vandium still worked. Anyway, now it works.
All the best to you both and a good+fast recovery. I really hate how we human behave sometimes.
That's the evidence of your apps are awesome and lots of people enjoy it. No one can be really famous without receiving death threats. There are and always will be some dummies (may be benefit or compete related) trying to crash you. If you quit now, then you are letting them to win.
Probably because NG cannot block UDP connection correctly. Or the app you are using is connecting to Internet through other app.Audible is connecting to the internet even though connections are blocked for this app WiFi and mobile and roaming and app system setting "background data" unfortunately audible still connects to the Internet on mobile connection even on Netguard lockdown mode. I'm on galaxy s22 plus android 12 latest Netguard version.
Hi @jsusang ,
I didn't see in the discussion on the F-droid forum, the case describing how to use ProtonVPN and NetGuard in the same time.@iwanttoknow
Here's a discussion on the F-droid forum on how to set up NetGuard with Orbot or another vpn:
I keep reading about the pros of using a VPN. Should I ditch Netguard? I wish I could use a VPN and NetGuard simultaneously. Instead it’s either/or. Unless I’m missing something.(?) Thanks.forum.f-droid.org
I have used Fennec browser with NetGuard & CalyxOS vpn, Fennec browser with NetGuard & Proton vpn, and Tor browser with NetGuard.
Orbot was too slow.
I *think* CalyxOS vpn connects to a Tor relay.
I already use NetGuard with Orbot.
Thank you but I'm not sure to understand your last explanations. I think that unfortunately ProtonVPN doesn't offer a mean to use it simultanously with NetGuard, particulary through SOCKS5 proxy.@iwanttoknow
I used ProtonVPN from F-droid's website about a year+ ago, and no longer have an account.
ProtonVPN users have to create/sign-in for an account with ProtonVPN. F-droid also notes the vpn service uses non-free network service (anti-feature).
I don't remember the exact setup to work with PVPN and NetGuard, except that it is similar to how to set it up with other vpn services as mentioned on the F-droid forum - SOCKS5 and ip settings.
One of the vpn services, cannot recall which one, I think you can temporarily turn off NetGuard, turn off NetGuard "always connected vpn," then connect vpn service, then turn on NetGuard.
After surfing internet - disable vpn service, turn on NetGuard "always on" vpn.
As I mentioned, it has been a while since I do not have browsers installed on my phones any longer.
Just have NetGuard keeping watch on those sneaky services and android apps.
It may have been the vpn that I temporarily disabling and turning off "always on" in NetGuard, enabling the vpn, then enabling NetGuard, then connect to the internet without setting up the SOCKS5. May have disabled filter traffic in NetGuard, too, but I am not sure.Thank you but I'm not sure to understand your last explanations. I think that unfortunately ProtonVPN doesn't offer a mean to use it simultanously with NetGuard, particulary through SOCKS5 proxy.
3 years ago I asked Proton team if they could add SOCKS5 proxy support to interface with NetGuard, they answered no.
