- switch Obsidians background data off (android default app toggle)
- block Obsidians outside traffic (using firewall apps)
- track outgoing traffic (using logging apps)
Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]

Obsidian on mobile should be totally silent if it isn’t updating plugins or syncing no matter if it’s online or off-line
Obsidian is a local personal knowledge management system.
Also some plugins require temporary connections but just temporary and I really hope, plugin developers are told and encouraged to add toggles to give users full control over unsolicited background connections
I don’t want other connections than the connections I allow, when and how often I want. Nothing more, nothing less.
In a local set-up, network connections should be treated as secondary and not essential services.
background services / connections cause Obsidian to restart very often.
You can see at the bottom (under Additional information) a incomplete day log of some of the outgoing traffic from Obsidian. (I pasted them by hand, need to find a way to print these logs)
I checked some of these urls, these are not-essential connections and not needed for the proper execution of local file editing in Obsidian. I’m ok if plugins are updating or if plug-ins load some pictures but these connections are temporary and are run on demand. No repetitive, unessential, unsolicited connections to github or google, please.
