    Ok, since the last thread about this was flushed down the crapper. How about a thread for people who use it, or are interested ONLY. NO haters...etc...you people can continue on in that one! thanks!

    I am very excited for this software to be released to the mainstream.

    Some of the newbies here may not even know what you are referring to. Maybe you could post a link explaining exactingly what Dell Mobile Connect is.

    Thanks Alex. Just got back here....

    The big question now is, are they going to release it to devices bought before 2018?

    I like the idea, but if this software will be limited to Dell, it won't likely be analyzed properly as if it was commonly available, thus some critical security flaw may go unnoticed for months and compromise end users.

    Update: After reading more about the app, it seems to work through Wi-Fi Direct, which is nice and secure, at least in theory. Still, this may be concerning, especially on a rooted phone.

    I don't root stuff anymore. Dell developed this, why would they give it away to other companies. it's a great feature thats only on dell. A great selling feature IMO.
