Do you know any open source android firewall which work whithout needing to be root? I found some, but they just let me permit or deny access to internet for each app. I need a fire wall on which I can make rules about IPs,ports, or something like these.

Netguard may be what you're looking for.

1) No root

2) 100% open source

3) Allow/block individual addresses per application (Paid only)

4) Also PCAP logging like Wireshark.

There is no other no-root firewall offering all these features.


  • Is there any other that you know of? I'm looking for the smallest example that I can try. Also with a more permissive license. Commented Jun 3, 2023 at 12:12
