Hi friend!

Up till now, the internet is loaded with many S60 series applications and many of them are at free of cost. One method is to directly download the firewall from your mobile’s software market. And another way, and maybe the best way, is to search the internet for spam free site likes the one that I have found.

Search for specific software for your Symbian model and then download it on your computer and, after that, you should send it to your Symbian mobile and install it and set the privacy settings. When all is done then restart the mobile to set the firewall to work in your mobile.

Though firewalls are normally installed on computers, Android Smartphones can also be installed with this security platform. With Android, security works slightly different with a normal PC. This means an Android device doesn’t need a firewall to the same extent as you do on your computer.

The power management functions in an Android make the device to not constantly “open for traffic” and you’re unlikely to get malicious communications from the internet. But still, if you want a firewall on your Android Smartphone, here are several of the best:

  • NetGuard – latest version is NetGuard 2.216 and requires Android 5.1 Lollipop and higher. This app offers simple and advanced ways of blocking access to the internet and doesn’t require rooting the device.
  • AFWall+ – latest version at the moment is AFWall+ 3.0.1 and requires Android 5.1 Lollipop and higher. This app requires rooting the device. It is a front-end application for the powerful iptables Linux firewall. It allows you to select which apps are allowed to access your data networks (2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, and while roaming).
