Default Android app to stop other apps connecting to internet...

Is there any app that will run on Android phones and either block any mobile
data connections (in the interest of preventing roaming data charges whilst
abroad)

Is there any app for same that will block a specific app/number of apps from
connecting to the internet whether over mobile data or wireless (due to
privacy concerns and ad blocking)

Thanks

Why an app?

Settings/Wireless&Networks/More/MobileNetworks

and either disable DataRoaming (the default?)

or disable DataEnabled
