    Is there a Free Firewall App That Does not require "ROOT?"

    I've not had my TT a year, yet, so I"m not ready to root (its my only Android device, and not comfortable doing the root, even tho, quite a few apps for Firewalls require root.)

    I'm really looking for a way to keep my nfo secure while using public wifi's. So, maybe I'm not even asking the right question?

    I can't think of one. Firewall requires administrative capabilities only provided by root, namely the capability to change the functioning of network accessing applications.

    What you really want is to use VPN. There are some free ones if you don't use much data on public Wifi. Try them out and you can always purchase a subscription later to get access to more data throughput. VPN will encrypt your data on all networks you use it on.
