Ummm, you know when you have to tell someone you are about to go put your head in the sand from embarrassment? This is one of those times. I somewhat forgot that I was also using another notification app. I’ll need to talk to them.
Reduce notifications about unknown cert.
When traveling, one often encounters captive WiFi portals (Deutsche Bahn mostly, in my case). Because these often somehow provide their own custom certificate, DAVdroid correctly produces a warning notification about this.
I’m not sure whether it’s just me, but that notification can not be swiped away. I have to click on in, scroll down and click “Reject” to make it go away. Of course, I never want to accept such a cert for one of the calendars or contact syncs that I have configured in DAVdroid.
I wonder whether this could be automated somehow. Maybe with a general setting like “silently reject unknown cert’s”, which might also require a special settings entry like “review rejected cert’s”? Or with a UX change to enable swiping such a notification away?
I would like to request the same enhancement.
If I am on public wifis with a “Captive Portal” for login, I always get the notification that I explicitly need to open and reject the certificate.
Can you make the notifications reject by swiping them away?
Thanks for your suggestions.
- don’t remove notification on timeout (it’s better to have a useless captive WiFi notification than potentially not being notified about a change in your own server’s certificate, e.g. LetsEncrypt)
- show certificate subject in notification sub-text (see screenshot)
- reject certificate temporarily when notification is swiped out
- show toast when certificate is rejected temporarily (= until the DAVdroid process is killed or certificates are reset in DAVdroid settings)
Awesome work, thanks so much! I just send you some money via PayPal as a small thanks.
