Android marshmallow WifiManager leaking IntentReceiver
Here's the scenario, I have a LoginActivity that makes use of the WifiManager to obtain the IP address like this: WifiManager wifiManager = (WifiManager)getSystemService(Context.WIFI_SERVICE); String ipAddress = wifiManager.getConnectionInfo().getIpAddress(); I do not register any receiver to receive any WiFi updates. I use the WifiManager to obtain the IP Address only and nothing else. Now when I complete login, I call finish() in LoginActivity and start SplashActivity and that's when I see the following log in console: LoginActivity has leaked IntentReceiver android.net.wifi.WifiManager that was originally registered here. Are you missing a call to unregisterReceiver()? And I get this log only on marshmallow. This does not happen on <6.0 devices ever. Also on marshmallow, the app never crashes but I see this log every time. If anyone can explain this behaviour?
I had the same error, but only when running in debug for some reason. Adding: getApplicationContext() fixed the issue for me. (Although I'm not entirely sure why?) WifiManager wifi_manager = (WifiManager) getApplicationContext().getSystemService(Context.WIFI_SERVICE); After doing a bit more research it looks like when you transition from one activity to the other the context no longer exists. getApplicationContext() - Returns the context for all activities running in application. getContext() - Returns the context view only current running activity. So it's probably best use getApplicationContext() for anything that should survive for the lifetime of your app.
