    Is there any protected firewall available? I have tried many & the problem was as follow: - it works very well but ANY user can simply uninstall it!! how didn't they put this into consideration. - i used a program to hide it, and when I hide it it becomes disabled.

    I used AFwall+ (root), Netguard..

    A firewall's job is to protect from external threats, not the person who has the device in their hand, so to me it's not hard to understand why they didn't consider this a priority. I guess you are trying to use this to stop the user (a kid? An employee?) from accessing some app or service?

    There are apps you can use to set a PIN on accessing other apps. I've never used one so can't say how we'll they work or recommend one, but that approach (rather than hiding it) might work. If course you'd need to lock the system settings too in order to stop the user just force stopping the app.
