Steps to reproduce
Read the Infosec handbook article here + We monitored all data connections of /e/ after restarting the phone. First of all, /e/ knocks on Google’s door by using its connectivity check:
- GET /generate_204 HTTP/1.1
- User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.82 Safari/537.36
- Host: connectivitycheck.gstatic.com
- Connection: Keep-Alive
- Accept-Encoding: gzip
What is the current behavior?
Calls are being made to Google
What is the expected correct behavior?
There should not be any Google calls.
