Just Android things: 150m phones, gadgets installed 'adware-ridden' mobe simulator games

I don't wish to root my phone (and even if I did, it borks various apps so I wouldn't) but for anyone else in the same boat, I can recommend the NoRoot Firewall.

Basically it installs as a VPN client and routes all traffic through itself, acting as a proxy, allowing you to turn off access to any app on a granular basis.

And it's free.

It also defaults to blocking (as it should, of course) so a new app needs to be allowed through.
