    I've never tried that myself, but at least there is no risk of getting a BSOD under Android.

    Android has its equivalent BSOD: Blue Error Handler and Kernel Panic.

    Maybe when they add more rules . . . but then it could affect the apps functionality.
    Still, i guess that with data connection blocked even if it could log any kind of info it would be impossible to send the info. :rolleyes:

    It works with the default Android browser too. It's just that they've added support for the Dolphin one.

    TrustGo also has added support for Google Chrome browser--see the what's new tab on Google Play.
     

  11. I now have 3 AV's, AVAST, DR WEB & IKARUS. All free solutions. No trouble with my phone, no issues. Working well.

    Might try out DroidWall, sounds good.!!!

    None for me. I bought my smartphone with Ahnlab V3 already installed and after a while I tried Dr Web for a few months. They've never found anything so I decided to go without any AV, I don't do much Internet stuff with my phone anyway.

    Agreed, after all it's just a phone used by a user that I don't really count as a high risk user :D

    So far only using DroidWall... anyway i only use this phone for games, and i´ll probably start using it for a couple of other things.

    As for calls and sms, i rely in a good old Nokia 3310 :)

    For anyone with a rooted phone and has installed a firewall, have you noticed in the logs wherein the "linux kernel", "dialer", "Google Services Framework,..." and "android system" are all trying to phone home to various IP addresses despite disabling automatic update/s?

    Noob,

    Are you still running Kasperksy on your phone?

    If so, would you mind sharing your settings with me/us?

    Just installed it on my device again. Its a default install have not changed anything. Looking for optimal setup config if at all possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah i still have it, i bought it for $5 USD!
    If i purchase something it's because i'm 100% sure i'll be using it. :D :D

    It's been a couple months since i last configured Kaspersky, give me a couple mins and ill answer you. ;)

    Kaspersky settings:
    File protection setting: "Extended"
    Scheduled updates: "Daily"
    Call & SMS Filter: "Disabled"
    Anti theft settings: All ON

    Thank you sir!

    Any reason you have disabled the Call and SMS filter?
