    Question How to deny or restrict network access to a specific application?

    Hi,

    I wanted to restrict an application from accessing network, so that application does not upload or download. Basically to stop rouge application from suspicious network activity.
    I understand Android provides a way to limit/restrict network access for Mobile network, from Settings --> Data Usage screen. But I'm looking for a way to completely restrict network access (both mobile and WiFi networks) to any particular application.

    I'm using Moto G, Android Kitkat

    Kindly let me know how to achieve this.. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks,
    Praveen

    I use it! No root needed!

    Our app. Same as No Root but much more features + Geo Firewall.
    You'll find more apps making suspicious connections.
