I just upgraded my Pixel 3 (Verizon Wireless) from Android 9 to Android 10 on my secured home network. Interesting issue encountered: After the update, ESET Mobile Security flagged my home network as an 'insecure public WiFi hotspot,' and recommended that I disconnect! Reason? ESET had not been given location permissions and therefore could not resolve the SSID of the network (even though I was connected to the WiFi). Giving ESET location permissions resolved the issue, no muss - no fuss. So, just as a heads up: If network aware apps aren't working correctly (security apps, WiFi/Network scanning apps, apps that sync over WiFi such as DejaOffice) after updating to Android 10, make sure you give those apps location permissions. As an aside, hopefully ESET folks will test this themselves, and roll out an update to account for this change in Android 10 so less savvy users do not become concerned that they are suddenly connecting to a non-secure public network from their home! 😉 @Marcos
