    Hello i'm just wondering if it is possible to block a mobile app, for example TikTok, i take a look here and i found that IPTABLES could filter and block it

    iptables -t filter -I FORWARD -s <your iPad IP>/32 -m layer7 --l7proto youtube -j DROP

    but i also looked that layer7 is not used anymore by Merlin v.384

    Any ideas? :) Thank you

    layer7 is ineffective nowadays. Look at OpenDNS or AiProtection to see if they can block it.

    No way to do this without using external service (like opendns)?
    Using some script...
    AiProtection doesn't seem can block tiktok app...

    I would prefer to root the phone and use firewall on the phone itself. Works perfect.
