Firewall removed?
« on: May 04, 2020, 06:14:24 AM »
I've jus installed Avast (free) on Android and noticed there is no firewall anymore, was it removed?
I can't find any info about it on the internet.

The Firewall feature in Avast Mobile Security depended on access to several system features that required root privileges. Due to low usage of the Firewall feature, and the risks associated with using a rooted device, we have removed Firewall from Avast for Android version 6.27 and higher.

Please find the complete information to the removal on the Avast Mobile Security FAQ site (https://support.avast.com/en-eu/article/Mobile-Security-FAQ) under "Why has the Firewall feature been removed from Avast Mobile Security?"
