NetGuard user reviews :

After using it for a couple of weeks, I am liking it more. I block almost every app from using up my data plan. When I am on Wifi they are free to update and etc… Get the Pro Version, lot more details and options. Xda Developers like it so I decided to buy it. Using more battery life but you can choose what to use and what not to keep track of.

  • Thanks, John. Filtering IP traffic uses battery power, this is unfortunately inevitable.
This is an excellent application. However, I haven’t purchased the PRO version yet. If the developer can create an option where we can define which wifi network a specific app can use, I’ll buy it in a heart beat.

Works very well for none root users Works very well. I have not rooted my new phone so this app works very well . I have tried other none root FW’s and this does work.

Fantastic app Helps me to manage my data plan with ease, blocking specific data hungry apps.

You are super! I will share it with everybody
