It only monitors and doesn't block connections like a firewall.Use network connection (from what i remember they don't need a firewall) and bloaka as adblocker(it's free) or even better adguard.

It depends on your usage. I paid for the VPN and has it always-connected.Hi,
Of the Android firewalls I have looked into, all seem to require setting up a fake vpn. And when you switch over to turn on the vpn, it disables the firewall's fake vpn. Which one is more important to you - vpn or firewall ?
On the other hand more VPNs are being industry-audited nowadaysI prefer firewall, because it blocks traffic coming inbound. Anyone can connect to any app and send over exploits without a firewall. VPNs encrypts traffic, but doesn't block unsolicited traffic inbound. I am not sure if a vpn checks if incoming traffic only originates from it's servers.

Sure, under the battery saving I agree, about the filtering capabilities is quite limited to the fact to don't allow creating custom rules, I follow Blokada real closely.even better adguard.
