Quick Answer: Liquid Notes can connect to the internet to check for software updates or to send usage data. You can enable or disable this behaviour in the general settings of Liquid Notes.
Settings for connecting to the InternetWhen developing Liquid Notes, we have included two features that enable it to check for updates and to send usage statistics to us. The former is a comfort function that notifies you of any update automatically, the latter enables us to better understand your usage of the software.
Both settings can be disabled so no data is exchanged with our servers.
To locate these settings, go to the menu bar in Liquid Notes and select "Settings" > "Settings...":
At the bottom of the Settings dialog window, you will find two checkboxes that configure how Liquid Notes connects to the internet.
Automatically check for updates is used for a periodic check with the Re-Compose servers for the availability of a new update when Liquid Notes is running. A data message is sent to our servers, asking for the latest version available there - this will be matched against the version installed on your machine, and notifications derived from it.
Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Re-Compose sends usage data that is collected on your machine to the Re-Compose servers periodically. Usage data don't contain any personal information, rather it gives us an overview of what features are used and how often. This allows us to better understand how you use the software, and what we could make better to support you at your work with Liquid Notes.
No crash reports are sent today, and usage data is collected (even locally on your machine) if this setting is turned off.
Tick the checkbox for either of the features to set them to active. If you want to prevent Liquid Notes from connecting to the internet, make sure that both of the checkboxes are unchecked.
