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

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.

Thank you.

Seems that nobody has an answer to this... maybe not possible to do?

Who said that everything that we do on an iOS device can be done on Android, really ? I don't agree iOS is completely different OS than Android
