Hi everyone, I’m new to this forum (sorry for my bad english).
I find that existing privacy services protect against specific attack vectors but leave large gaps in other areas ex: privacy VPN but no firewall or privacy DNS with no VPN.
I need one application that includes the following:
- Firewall (blocks/allows internet access to apps)
- No custom ROM that offers built-in firewalls
- I am open to rooting my device but I would prefer not to do that
Bonus points for:
- DNS tool
- Granular tracker control (blocks tracking and ads within apps)
Here is what I found so far:
Safing released their beta application for mobile but it is super bare bones (also I have to pay).
Rethink DNS is working on a VPN in addition to their existing DNS + Firewall. I think it can also forward connections to Orbot but it was hit or miss when I tried that feature.
NetGuard and Tracker Control have a SOCKS5 proxy but I think that a lot of beginners (including me) don’t feel like they have the technical skills/knowledge to setup a VPN chain through a SOCKS5 proxy…
Net Guard will eventually add support for multiple VPNs. And IMHO it has the best firewall UI.
InviZible has a firewall function but the UI is very bare bones.
What should I go for? Am I missing something?
