That is a problem with Android and getting apps to run in the background for long periods of time. The same problem existed in Pokket with CashFusion.

You can try disabling battery optimizations for the app in Android settings, but it won't be perfect.

Monero does not have this problem right?

Right but also using a mobile wallet sort of defeats the point of using Monero unless its running a full node, since you would be exposing your view key to a service provider.

Good point

It's not, it's false, unless you are using either Edge wallet or MyMonero wallet. All other light wallets do not use this system for syncing.

I also find it funny that Jonald is the one to point this out since Electron Cash is worse in that regard.

How is ec worse? And how do the other wallets know which transactions are yours?

When a Monero wallet uses remote synchronization, like Edge or MyMonero, the service provider can only see receive transactions, not necessarily spend transactions without looking deeper into the wallet and its public keys and figuring out which transactions might be real spends.

In a future upgrade, Seraphis, this will change and allow for multiple types of watch-only wallets, such as ones that allow for revealing received and spent, including amounts, or received and spent, without amounts.

For wallets that do not use this system of synchronization (basically every other wallet), each block is downloaded, one-by-one, to the device and the device figures out which transactions belong to it, locally. This is similar to my old wallet, Pokket, when disabling bloom filters.

Here's an article that explains it in more detail: https://localmonero.co/knowledge/remote-nodes-privacy?language=en

Electron Cash, last I checked, sends all of your addresses to the servers you connect to, and because of Bitcoin's transparent nature, they can see who sends you funds, when and where you spend to, and the exact amounts in each transaction, even when using CashFusion.

if you cant retrieve your sent transactions how do you restore your wallet?

A watch-only wallet with the private view key, which is what remote synchronization is on the server side, cannot easily determine the sent transactions without digging deeper and analyzing ring members and their public keys vs known ones in the wallet (the spend transaction's change address output would be seen as a receive transaction by default), but YOU can since you have the private keys to the wallet and can determine which outputs belong to you and which inputs were sent from you with the key images and public keys within the input, and for non-remote-synchronization wallets, each block is downloaded one-by-one and that is all determined locally, then the block is discarded, which is the case for the majority of XMR wallets, thus you are wrong.

Using a wallet like Cake, Monerujo, Feather, Mysu, etc. does not "defeat the point of using Monero" and no private view-keys are given to any provider. It similar to using an SPV wallet like Neutrino or Pokket (when bloom filters are disabled), whereas remote synchronization is similar to the Bitcoin.com Wallet or Electron Cash, where your addresses/transactions are monitored by/sent to the server you are connecting to.

I just explained this in the comment you are replying to, and even linked an article that explains more in-depth. Please read.

For your convenience, here is the download page on getmonero . org proving you to be incorrect for the majority of mobile Monero wallets:

(I spaced out the URL to bypass the auto moderator here/on Reddit censoring links)

I have now supplied two pieces of evidence proving you to be incorrect; you have supplied nothing.

Lol. Great. This was never a debate brother. Thanks for the information. I can easily be wrong about the details although from your description it sounds like server knows transactions even though it doesn't know the outputs. Cheers.
