In reply to @idkrnx:matrix.orgDo you have some tips on securing a local network?
In reply to @idkrnx:matrix.orgI was talking about my home WiFi/local network, what do you mean it's already done for me?
Again please forgive my ignorance if I am asking stupid questions. I have VLANs which I use to try and separate all devices (of which I keep to a minimum anyway) but the only authentication they have to provide is the WiFi password which I change occasionally. I don't use IOT devices or anything like that and also won't be using Bluetooth devices much if at all now.
Anyway this is definitely off topic and I doubt anyone cares about my setup haha
In reply to @blicero:matrix.orgBut yea same, I am very open to any tips as well
|roamer4223||Though as I said it's probably too off topic for this room||22:29:27|
|elephantability||When using the stock file manager to open a video in a third party app, does it grant the app write access or is it limited to read?||22:32:56|
In reply to @elephantability:matrix.orgDo you mean going into the file manager and opening from there or going on to third party app and using the system file picker to open the video from there?
I don't know the answer to your question by the way, but I just wondered if it would make a difference
In reply to @blicero:matrix.orgnot me lol
In reply to @roamer4223:matrix.orgthat won't help secure your device/the connections it makes. https etc. does this
In reply to @roamer4223:matrix.orgGoing into the file manager and opening from there. I can't find an answer anywhere
In reply to @elephantability:matrix.orgI may well be wrong but I am pretty sure if the third party app doesn't have access to that file via storage permission or storage scopes, then it will be read only. It may be able to edit the video for example but would have to save it as a copy and leave the original where it was
In reply to @idkrnx:matrix.orgsee what you were saying now :)
In reply to @roamer4223:matrix.orgThat's what I was thinking too but I wanted to be sure. I appreciate it
In reply to @elephantability:matrix.orgactually I might take that back
|roamer4223||just tried it with a text file created in one app, opened with another app that has no storage permission and I could edit that||23:34:34|
|roamer4223|| right, I guess I have your answer. It does depend on the file, whether it is read only or read write. So if the file is a already read write (which it probably is) then it can be edited.|
at least from my test, which was creating a text file in termux, then opening it in beauTyXT. I could edit it initially. Then after changing the permissions of the file in termux with chmod 400 [text file], it would still open in beauTyXT but it showed as read only and couldn't be edited.
In reply to @roamer4223:matrix.orgDo you think it could depend on the file type? I was hoping videos only got read access. Also was that through the "open with" on the stock file manager app?
In reply to @idkrnx:matrix.orgwrong reply, sorry
In reply to @elephantability:matrix.orgYes it was through the "open with" on the stock file manager. Looks to me from my little 'test' I mentioned above it just depends on the file permissions of the particular file in question, which you can change I guess.
Or you could clone the file before opening it in the third party app, so you still definitely still have the original file unchanged
In reply to @roamer4223:matrix.orgOh nevermind I guess that makes sense. I thought the file manager got to choose to grant read or write when opening to another app with the content uri regardless of the actual read or write permissions of the file. I didn't know if the file manager grants write or not but maybe it doesn't matter
|elephantability||I appreciate your test and answers though thank you||23:55:22|

In reply to @elephantability:matrix.orgTo be honest I hadn't really thought about it before and am glad I actually have now, I kind of assumed the same as you at first. But it makes sense now I think about it, if it grants access to the file, it will just depend on the file and what permissions it has. So thanks very much for the interesting question!
I hope we reached the right conclusion anyway :)
