    Android Firewall

    Phone: Galaxy Q
    OS: Android 2.2.2

    Are there any decent 3rd party firewall's to install for this OS?

    The reason I ask is that I am not fond of the default firewall setup for installing software.
    When I install an app it displays what the app has access to but does not allow one to opt out any permissions while doing so.

    ie. Let us say I want to install an app that does not really require accessing my personal phone info or perhaps does not need to connect to the internet.
    I think there should be an option to 'uncheck' internet access (and anything else) so that when running the app I know the firewall will not let it access the net when it makes an attempt.
    This is rather simple to implement for the developers and imo it should be a standard feature of the firewall.

    \\Edit -> I apologize for not posting in the proper section.. your board index is rather lengthy.
