self-signed cert and a warning from android

Post by linforpros » Tue Feb 02, 2016 2:32 am

Hi,
after successfully installing and configuring zmNinja on android a message appears on the upper taskbar:

Code: Select all

"A third party is capable of monitoring your network activity, including emails, apps, and secure websites.
a trusted credential installed on your device is making this possible."
How to make this message go away and never pop up again? Is this something that we are to live with as a price for self-signed certs?

thank you for any hints

best regards

Yup I hate this. It's apparently a security feature starting kitkat

Given the number of people who miss the SSL instructions, and also the fact that Android, starting kitkat posts this weird message, I've removed the requirement to install SSL certs on the phone. This will be part of the next release.
