You are welcome, it was a nice find for me too.
Basically it leverages the work profiles on android, which is something I didn't know about. It's separated from the rest of the OS, not able by default of accessing the main profile's data, and under the control of an administration (shelter, here).
Another nice use case is if you want two profiles, for example two whatsapp profiles, or whatever, in the same device, as some apps are so retarded they think multiaccount is just for morally devious people who do not deserve the usage of their precious software.
thanks for your suggestion, that is what I would do but unfortunately (or, luckily) I'm not an employee, I need it to sell stuff online and to share info with other contractors, so no one is going to pay me for a monthly plan, another mobile and so on =D
What I ended up doing is installing #shelter, downloading #whatsapp with #YalpStore, cloning it into shelter and removing it from my main system.
I am all too aware that it's not a full #VM, I'm just putting some wire net around it, not a full box, but it **shouldn't** be able to access my data.
It has its own contact book and gallery to refer to, and I can avoid giving it many permissions.
By using shelter I can also freeze it, so that I stop it from running on the background no matter what, which is good.
It still sucks, but I couldn't come out with something better.
I guess sooner or later I'll have to go with a second device though, it's mostly the phone bill that bugs me.
A shout for the nice people who helped me:
* shelter: https://git.angry.im/PeterCxy/Shelter
* yalp store: https://github.com/yeriomin/YalpStore
For working reason I'll have to install whatsapp on my mobile. To avoid it reading my contacts, stuff, running all the time and so on, is there anyone here running it using #shelter , or some other confining app? Any thought or best practices?
It's the first non FOSS app I install on my #android
@tjemni Today I'll mostly study, I think, have a nice nap and go to dance in the evening. Not too bad, even if I do not feel enthusiastic about anything lately.
On a small side project, I'm getting conscious of how many discussions I have that are basically solved by getting to the sources, so I'll try to streamline the process of giving and receiving sources.
Since many topics are frequent (homeopathy, climate change, water memory, biodiversity and hybridation...) having at my fingertips all the links will save me hours: I'll just say "stop here, I'm sending you this researches, get back to me after you've read them". And I can enjoy life more!
What are you up to?
Hi, can I please ask you to CW long posts (>1000 characters), not to fill the entire timeline? It'd be appreciated =)
so, @email@example.com , what about that website on your work in scientific education?
I just read this article by my #phylogenetics professor. It is framing a bit the natural sciences as historical, tackles the envy of physics held by many natural scientists and makes an analysis of #Darwin as an ecologist, highlighting how he already pointed out most of what is now the staple of #ecology.
