I am using the Orbot Tor VPN app on Android, and periodically while browsing, I will get a system message at the bottom saying "App Restarted". Then: "Cannot Establish VPN (App Not Prepared)". The app thenrestarts, and traffic resumes through the VPN according to the onion icon in the system panel. I have not run any tests, but it seems to happen when the processor/ram gets overwhelmed. I imagine this is beyond my control, so my primary question is about data leakage, and there is a secondary for any recommendations on how to fix or prevent this from happening, short of an update.
- If I am browsing a site while this happens, does data leak out in the time it takes to restart the app? Either to the website or to the ISP?
- What may be causing this? RAM, resources, conflicting apps?
