@switchingsocial "ProtonVPN hides the metadata from your ISP" wow now they are in control over the metadata... makes it not better than without...
Well, I just meant any VPN does this, I was trying to explain what a VPN was in one short phrase.
@switchingsocial yes and that's why I don't like when people recommend or advertise VPN... they help exactly nothing in privacy sense... they just help to come around Geo Blocking...
Well, it depends on whether you trust your ISP or your VPN more.
Some ISPs (especially larger companies) have an official policy of selling metadata to advertisers.
@tursiops since which version ? Does it happen only when you sync notes ?
@Carnet I got the latest version from f-droid I also tried locally but the notes also vanish after I close the app
@tursiops can you check if they are in the "browser" part ?
@tursiops what android version do you have ?
@Carnet version 9 on a Google pixel 3a xl
@tursiops ok, same as me...
@Carnet they are not in either recent or browser part
@tursiops woo really weird. Can you go in the app settings and tell me what the storage folder is ?
@Carnet storage/emulated/0/quicknote when I clicked on it it asked me to authorize it let me check again maybe it just didn't have to right to write
@Carnet OK it was that. Strange that it didn't ask me for permission when I installed it
@tursiops yes but it should need storage permission
@tursiops it shoudln't
@tursiops mine for example doesn't require storage, so I'm not sure the bug comes from here
@tursiops what was the original folder ? It shouldn't need the storage permission to access /sdcard/Android/data/com.spisoft.quicknote
@Carnet well my phone doesn't have an sd card so that's why it needs local storage I suppose
@tursiops sdcard is local storage, in fact, it's a trap :P
@tursiops but can you check the default storage you have ? in settings ? was it storage/emulated/0/Android (...) ?
@tursiops is it possible that you installed it one month ago or two, didn't use it, then decided to give it a try ?
@Carnet yes that's indeed what happened :)
@tursiops ok weird and weird :P
@Carnet thanks for your help anyway
@Carnet yes that's correct path
