Preferred Network Offload leaks known SSIDs

Added by Paul Kocialkowski over 5 years ago

It was recently brought to our attention that most Android devices leak the know Wi-Fi SSIDs when the screen is turned off, in order to maintain Wi-Fi connections when the device is asleep. This issue was fixed (this is now disabled) in the Replicant source code and the fix will be part of the next batch of Replicant 4.2 images. You are encouraged to update to the new version (when available) or build Replicant from source if you don't want to wait!
