Dear Jolla,

Please stop SailfishX from 'phoning home' to when the phone is powered on, for two reasons: (1) it's that kind of creepy shit that gives companies a bad name and (2) my workplace uses a captive portal before allowing WiFi access and whatever it is that is trying to contact fucks up by launching multiple tabs in the browser, each of which is a failed attempt to connect to

Thanks so much.

That's for checking if your Wifi Connection has Internet Connection to show the right icon. Every modern device does this, even modern Linux distributions... Same question here:

Thanks for the link to the other question - avoiding the wifi check is exactly what I want to do. Why on earth Jolla can't make this an option in the GUI I have no idea. After all, if someone has the skills to side-load Sailfish onto an Xperia X, I rather think they have the skills to know whether the WiFi connection has Internet connectivity or not. If Jolla really must do this then they could at least connect to an NTP time server or similar.
