Does anyone else use Zeus on Android to connect to a remote LN node serving over Tor?

I find it frustrating because it does connect, after 10-20 seconds, most of the time, but often I get 'connection timed out' and it's just not reliable enough to want to use it because of that. Does anyone else have that experience?

I used to use Zap and it was far more reliable using that slightly dodgy 'IP2Tor' mechanism, but that stopped working in Zap about a year ago.
Is there another option?

@waxwing Had the same issue when I tried it out a few months ago, but was mainly put off by the fact that it stored credentials unencrypted.

@raucao I take it you mean Zeus here. Please do tell details if poss.

@waxwing Yes, Zeus. Was just exactly as you describe and I did not investigate at the time.

@raucao right, but which credentials in particular? There are so many :)

@waxwing All of them, as there's no PIN or other secret to decrypt any of them when starting the app.

@raucao @waxwing Do you know of an article that explains this in more detail?

It's been my main wallet for a while now.

@beachbardave @raucao he's just pointing out that when you open Zeus, it just .. opens; no password, no biometric, nothing. Now I write it out, aren't some other LN wallets like that? I tend not to take it too seriously as only playing with them for now, but it's a meaningful question for sure!

@beachbardave @raucao it means that whatever credentials you use to connect to your node (example: macaroons for lnd) can't be encrypted, since there's no secret.

@waxwing @beachbardave I also didn't find that, and password is a bit clunky on mobiles anyway. Option of PIN or biometric would be the norm.

@raucao @waxwing there's a new version in alpha so hopefully those issues are addressed.
