Target version:-


ChatSecure crashes when removing a contact's nickname, then continues to crash upon each startup (leaving the app unusable) until the app data is wiped.

  1. Open ChatSecure.
  2. Long-press on a contact from the list.
  3. Select Contact nickname.
  4. Set the nickname to something arbitrary but non-empty.
  5. Repeat steps 1-3.
  6. Remove nickname, leaving the field empty, then press OK.
    ChatSecure will then crash. It then crashes upon every start up, requiring a wipe of the app data (and setting up the accounts again) in order to use it. I am able to reproduce this every time.
