Disables Wi-Fi and Mobile Data to prevent Internet access while certain apps you specify are running. Works with or without Root access.

The flow detects whether the UI is needed to do the setting by checking for an exception from the Wi-Fi and Mobile Data Enable blocks during setup. In order for the UI method to be able to turn Wi-Fi and Mobile Data on and off in Android Oreo and above, those tiles must be present in Quick Settings. To see if they are, expand the status bar by swiping down twice. If either tile isn't present, tap the EDIT or “pen” button, then drag the tile to add it.

Note: If you have logging enabled for the flow and notice an exception, that's normal and is the way the flow determines whether the non-root UI workaround is needed to enable and disable Wi-Fi and Mobile Data. The flow continues to run normally.
