    I don't think Google wants us controlling our devices or the apps installed on them, thus recently removing the Ap Ops feature in KitKat.

    Currently using NoRoot Firewall here. Is it overkill if I get SnoopWall..?

    They offer a thirty day free trial but I can't find any info on the website about the cost of a subscription.

    Edit - this from the Google Play Store:

    You can always choose to upgrade to add additional functionality such as automated blocking technology for as little as $1.29 USD per month or only $9.95 USD per year for one device or less for more devices. The upgrade includes additional features and does cost money. The upgrade is not required for SnoopWall to audit and alert you when applications are misbehaving and trying to spy on you or steal your information.

    So anyone give this a try yet?
    Interesting looking, still a little reluctant on trying till I hear some feedback though.

    I tried the free version and didn't find it very useful. It offers different "profiles" which toggle WiFi, GPS and BT with the idea of saving battery. I have widgets on my phone screen to easily toggle these so I saw no value in that feature. There are numerous apps that will take an inventory of installed applications and list their permissions, but all you can do is uninstall them if you feel the permissions are excessive. I didn't try the trial for the full version. That might have more useful features. As they say YMMV so why not give it a try and add a review?

    this doesnt do anything that xprivacy+AFwall wont do and they both are free.
