Bug - Ads?

I'm a premium user of ClearCheckbook, and have been for a couple of months. I also use Adguard, which blocks ads in apps. It also keeps track of data usage on a per app basis, to include upload, download, and blocked ads.

Over the past 24 hours, ClearCheckbook used 182.7KB download, 65.5KB upload, and attempted to download 10.7MB (455 ads!) from blocked servers. That seems quite excessive.

Is this supposed to be happening for a premium user?

Neither our apps nor website serve any kind of advertisements. I'm not sure what your ad blocker is doing, but it's definitely not blocking ads from our app since they don't exist.

We run a service called crashlytics on the app which helps us catch bugs and crashes but it would not be using that much data.

Does your ad blocker provide any real information on what was blocked or is it just an arbitrary number?

Adguard blocks crashlytics, so thinking it is using more trying to reconnect and send rather than using less when it can connect.

You can add a filter @@||crashlytics.com^ to get around it.
