-===== Manual eduroam Configuration on Android 5.x==== 
-These instructions show how to configure the Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop) OS release mobile device settings to establish eduroam connection manually. Various Android devices may slightly different screen layouts. 
-<WRAP center round important 80%> 
-Please use the [[en:​services:​network_services:​eduroam:​start#​eduroam_cat|CAT tool]], since eduroam can not be configured manually for optimal security on Android. Manual configuration should only be used in exceptional cases, since no secure certificate check can be established on Android devices manually. 
-==== Root certificate ==== 
-To make sure a secure connection can be established,​ it is necessary to load and install the root certificate. By default the root certificate is included within Android 5, however it can only be used for VPN and applications,​ but not for WLAN. Therefore, it has to be loaded again for this purpose. Download and install root certificate for WLAN connections. Type any name for the certificate,​ set the Credential use to **Wi-Fi** and hit **OK**. Please follow detailed instructions [[en:​services:​network_services:​eduroam:​android:​ca-certificate#​download_certificate| here]]. ​ 
-If you don't have set a lock screen you have to do that now.

-According e.g. the [[http://​www.uni-goettingen.de/​de/​59845.html | security policies of the university]] this option may not be used, thus passwords may not be disclosed to third parties. This option is to be deactivated,​ to do so, navigate from **Settings** to **Personal** section and choose **"​Backup & Reset"​**,​ where you can set **"​Back up my data"​** to disabled status. 
-As an alternative backup solution can be e.g. the App Helium may be used (check German article in “GWDG-Nachrichten” [[https://​www.gwdg.de/​documents/​20182/​27257/​GN_03-2015_www.pdf#​10| Helium Backup für Android]] ). The App Helium does not require system route and can backup data encrypted. ​
