Zerotier VPN on Android is treated as a metered connection, even when underlying network isn't metered

I’ve noticed things get stuck, like podcast stop auto-downloading on my phone, while I’m connected to zerotier. I’ve looked into it and it seems that the VPN connection is marked as “metered”, so it tries to save data.

Some other VPN products have had the same issue, see:

Could this be done on the Zerotier side as well?

Yeah looks like Google/Android added an API flag in API level 29 that defaults to True on Q and higher. Le sigh.

Thanks for letting us know.

Thanks for the great tool. :slightly_smiling_face:
