Do you know where is the destination IP address and/or port the programs try to access?

That could be a tricky task depending on the app to bock.

For example, I'd love to block Facebook messenger, but that's tcp/443. Good luck with that.

You could look at a layer 7 approach, but it'll take some research on your part, much testing and a lot of router CPU.

Sent from my cell phone. Sorry for the errors.
