How "ca-bundle.crt" ended up in my documents folder?

Post by simon.schvartzman » Wed Jun 12, 2019 3:39 pm

Hi all, I have this App that temporarily stores files on the mobile specialFolderPath("documents") looking at its contents (when dealing with a customer problem) I found there is a file in Android called "ca-bundle.crt" that doesn't appear on iOS.

Question #1: Where does it come from?
Question #2: What is it?
Question #3: Do I need it or can be removed?
Question #4: If it can be removed, how?

Any hint will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Simon

It looks like a security certificate. I'm not sure what your app does but I'd leave it there. If you are signing the app with your own key it may be related to that.

Thanks Jacque, as a matter of fact I'm signing the app with my own key in Android and that would explain why it doesn't appear on iOS.

Mystery solved...

Saludos!
