But if I am in a wifi, and the app is transparently proxied, what would
happen when the false icon keeps on showing?
Some apps that do support SOCKS proxies have leaks ( looking at you,
twidre) and often, transparent proxying, on top of the SOCKS setup helps.
In this case, it would be compromising.
