#12976 new defect

Orbot's new identity feature is not mentioned anywhere in app or documentation

Nowhere in the app UI, wizard or websites can I find any mention of the Orbot's new identity feature. I only discovered it by accident and I'm sure other users will be in a similar position. I thought I'd seen a bug of someone actually requesting for a new identity feature to be added because they didn't know it already existed, but I can't seem to find it now.

I think a simple mention in the UI would be enough. Just like we already have Orbot is deactivated - long press to start -, we could simply change the string Connected to the Tor network to something like Connected to the Tor network - Swipe for new circuit -. A mention in the in-app wizard and/or in the interactive how-to on the Guardian Project website also wouldn't go a miss.

I just came to the bug tracker to ask whether I could help develop a "new identity" feature, as I had never noticed it. I agree that it should be mentioned somewhere on the main screen.
