Android post-import: delete configuration file from Download folder

Recommended Posts

I have a suggestion for an addition to the Android installation instructions.


After importing the profile into OpenVPN Connect, you should delete the profile from the Download folder.  In many cases, any app with WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE (and, recently, READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE) will be able to read the contents of the Download folder, allowing a malicious app to grab your profile.  The profile is more secure in the OpenVPN Connect app storage area.


Is this worth adding?
