Description

By default, Android maintians closed application in RAM as a cache so they can be restarted faster. The RAM is marked as available and garbage collected if needed by other applications. However, even though Privacy Browser clears all the sensitive variables on "Clear and Exit", there are still potential privacy problems with having the main application remain in RAM.

  • Status changed from New to Closed

Adding `System.exit(0);` to the end of the "Clear and Exit" commands completely removes Privacy Browser from RAM.
