Processing Application Traffic

Dr.Web Firewall filters traffic on the application level and, therefore, controls the access of applications to network resources. To view the information on the Internet traffic of applications installed on your mobile device, as well as to configure the connection rules for them, open the Applications tab (see Figure 24).

Figure 24. Applications tab

At the top of the Applications tab, you can review the total amount of data transferred over the network and the amount of sent and received traffic. Below, you can see a list of applications (and application groups) with amount of traffic they have used.

On this tab, you can enable/disable use of Wi-Fi, mobile Internet, and roaming Internet for each application in the list using the corresponding icons.

To enable/disable use of Wi-Fi, tap the wifi icon.

To enable/disable use of mobile Internet, tap the mobile_traffic icon.

To enable/disable use of roaming Internet, tap the roaming icon.

Dr.Web Firewall is based on VPN for Android technology. VPN prevents apps from functioning if they use a technology which is incompatible with VPN, e.g. Wi-Fi Direct. It can result in inability to connect your device to other devices. In this case, you should not disable Dr.Web Firewall completely. Disable Dr.Web Firewall control for the necessary application (or application group) instead:

1.On the Applications tab (see Figure 24), select the application (or application group).

2.On the Application settings screen, tap Menu menu_bw.

3.Select Do not control the app (see Figure 25).

Figure 25. Application settings

You are recommended to disable Dr.Web Firewall control only for the trusted applications.

When the option is enabled, Dr.Web Firewall does not control network connections of the app even if you set up the limitations in the Dr.Web Firewall settings. The app traffic is not metered.

Access to data transmission

You can enable/disable use of Wi-Fi, mobile Internet, and roaming Internet for each application using the corresponding icons in the Access to data transmission section.

To enable/disable use of Wi-Fi, tap the wifi icon.

To enable/disable use of mobile Internet, tap the mobile_traffic icon.

To enable/disable use of roaming Internet, tap the roaming icon.
