InternetGuard forwards traffic of allowed connections directly to its
not use a remote VPN server.
No, depending on the mode of operation basically one of two things will happen
- When IP filtering is disabled, blocked internet traffic will be routed into the local
which will operate as a sinkhole (in effect dropping all blocked traffic)
- When IP filtering is enabled, both blocked and allowed internet traffic will be routed
local VPN service and only allowed traffic will be forwarded to the intended destination
(and not to
a VPN server)
The Android VPN service is being used to locally route all internet traffic to InternetGuard
so no root
required to build this firewall application. InternetGuard, unlike all other no-root
is 100% open source, so when you are in doubt you can check the source code yourself.
