Phone resets when Briar is running in background
- Android version: 7.1.2
- Briar version: 1.0.13
User feedback: "I am not so sure that this a bug in briar, but since last update my phone is often resetting when briar is signed in. What i have noticed is that briar cannot negotiate a new connection when app is in background or when screen is locked. Example is i am signing in and switch to browser app - ten minutes later i will look back and app is still signing in. When sign in finished i return to browser, look back in ten minutes and only then it finds contacts online (while i an looking at the app) and receives messages. Once it is signed in and connection is found then it works in background fine and will receive messages. If i am not checking briar while signing in and making connection though, phone will sooner or later reset. Same if i am changing type of internet connection, like i am going from WiFi to data. I must keep app open and active until it finds contacts again or else phone will reset. As i say, i am not sure this is caused by briar, but it started near time of last update and by keeping app open during such times i have almost stopped sudden resets which before were happening many times each day."
