Delta Chat now contacting third party servers (map provider) for position related data (map tiles)
Position tracking "has been silently introduced as an advanced opt-in feature"
starting with version 0.301.0 of package Delta Chat (https://f-droid.org/packages/com.b44t.messenger/)
But apparently third party servers are now [EDIT: were] also contacted even if the feature is turned off! https://support.delta.chat/t/end-of-privacy/393
EDIT: The allways-on connections got fixed, now connections should now only occur after using the specific map feature:
- NonFreeNet - Delta Chat has a feature to show location tracking data on a map. The map drawing depends on Mapbox, a third-party map provider that states to record API calls.
