How can I find out if my keyboard is connecting to the internet?



  • I have it cut off from the internet on AFWall+ and I'm using XPrivacyLua with everything checked except "read clipboard". How can I now make sure whether or not it's connecting to the internet?



  • You can also use an app like https://github.com/emanuele-f/PCAPdroid to watch (and record) the traffic caused by apps. Traffic can be filtered per app if you want. I recommend installing it https://f-droid.org/packages/com.emanuelef.remote_capture (which I generally recommend as first place to go for apps, not just for privacy reasons).

    I took your screenshot from your comment, and added a second one from the app's listing at Google Play: the first shows there are indeed connection attempts made by the app, the second shows how the details would look like if you'd tap one entry in the list. In this second screen it would be interesting to see how many packages have been transferred up and down – i.e. if there really was any traffic, or if it's all just failed attempts.
