[jitsi-users] Thanks for the Android client (plus a security/privacy question)


#1

Hi

Thanks for the android client, it seems like it is working fine for the
alpha. And it is very exciting development in my view as a user. However
I see that this application is calling home " 5.135.86.61" (sent 4
packets totaling 288 bytes for one call) . Can someone shed some light
on why it is calling home and what kind of data is transmitted? On the
otherhand it never asked me if I want to send data to the devs (the
sending log option is off). I am just going to block this ip from now
on. I doubt it is malicious however it probably is not welcome by most
users, especially when it is a hidden behaviour.

thanks

We are not sending any data anywhere. Logs can be send only on demand
using "send logs" option in main menu. What provider do you use ? What
do you mean by "home" ?

The IP he posted belongs to us, stun.jitsi.net and jit.si run there. Given
the packets are call related, it's probably just STUN in action.

I was about to say that. If you are using a jit.si account then the
packets you see there are your XMPP traffic.

If you don't, then we are just making STUN queries to that service in
order to assist you with NAT traversal.

Hi

Thanks for the confirmation.

I do not use any 3rd party account, only my server and users of my
servers. I do not have any other 3rd party contact on Jitsi android
either.

In any case keep up the great work. I hope that the Android Client gets
wider user base.

thanks
