Why Meddle?

Have you ever been surprised by overage charges on your mobile data plan? Even wonder why certain apps run slowly? Tired of annoying ads? Want to do something about it?

Unfortunately, mobile operating systems and carriers currently give you little or no control over the network traffic generated by your devices. With Meddle, we give you back control over your mobile network traffic.

What does Meddle do?

By giving you control over network traffic for your device, Meddle can improve your performance, privacy, data consumption and battery life. We've built a few services that you can use on your traffic and we're adding more all the time.

Meddle also offers you transparency into how apps use the network and how carriers manipulate your traffic. We provide several filters for blocking unwanted traffic and allow you to set custom ones.
