This is a question aimed to those that constantly say that everything that you can do on iOS you can do on Android.
So far I haven't find a way to do the following:
- Block certain apps from using mobile data at all
- Use a VPN for privacy protection
So far I have two programs installed in my phone for this:
- Opera Max
- PIA VPN
I cannot use those at the same time because both are VPN apps. So I have to choose between blocking some apps from using mobile data when I have no wifi available, or privacy on the phone. I need and want to be able to do both. I was able to do that in iOS since the mobile data blocking was a system setting that I could activate per app. The only closest thing that I found on Android is to block the background data usage, but that is not what I need/want.
So, how can I do that on Android? Block mobile data and use VPN at the same time? Oh, it has to be a solution that does not require me to root the phone.
