« on: May 03, 2018, 08:09:33 PM »
Hi everyone,

What`s new:
  • New desing of Wi-Fi Inspector
    • New map of devices
    • Easier to change device type
    • Different scans for public and private networks

What was fixed:
  • GDPR compliance: added new options in Privacy section in General Settings ( paid programs)
  • Setup: UI is now installed in second phase of setup. It should have positive impact on installation success and installation speed

Why is GDPR compliance only available to paid users?

Makes no sense the rules aren't product specific. They apply equally to paid or free users. :)

For those who might be wondering what GDPR is - General Data Protection Regulation - from what I have found it would appear to be an EU (European Union) directive.  But other countries would have to comply for any European citizens.

GDPR is a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of EU citizens for transactions that occur within EU member states. And non-compliance could cost companies dearly. Here’s what every company that does business in Europe needs to know about GDPR.

Wi-Fi Inspector appears broken, it flashes back and forth, alternating between the screen with "You're Protected" and the WiFi Inspector at about a 1 second interval.  Eventually WiFi Inspector completes, but the "exit" button has to be pressed quickly when the screen becomes visible in order to stop the alternating screens.

"We'll see whether it's necessary to enable it for Free users in future. "
Eventually, we'll see an answer to my statement. :)

Hi NON, that's correct - in fact, all of them (German UI).

Why is GDPR compliance only available to paid users?

Free users will keep the current settings: to opt out from communityIQ and Data Sharing. The paid users have more options as for them we might know their identity (through license purchase). Free user is anonymous for us.

Also noticed the user interface seems a bit slower compared to the previous beta 18.4.2336 and before.  Maybe it's related to my earlier post below.

BTW - The alternating issue above only happens with WiFi inspector, not any of the scans.  And when it alternates to the "you're protected" screen, the usual screen buttons are muted.

Thank you both,
The issue is affecting only Win XP.
We are working on a fix.
