I recently tried to kill an android app on my XA2 using the "force stop" button in the settings menu (settings->apps->[appname]). To my dismay I found that this not only stops the app, but also wipes all app data without prior warning.

This behaviour is reproducible with all apps I have tested so far...

Phone is XA2 dual (H4113) running SailfishOS

Confirmed! (and I finally understand why Spotify lost the login credentials -> force stop), I'm also on XA2 dual -sim (H4113) and SailfishOS (for the record).

Thanks for spotting this. It was a lovely off-by-one error that's fixed for 3.0.2.
