Does the app need disclaimers
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Both the mobile web version and desktop version has disclaimers in their legal footer, such as to the General disclaimer and/or the Content disclaimer etc.

Does the app need to link/mention these as well. I'm guessing there is a reason they exist in the first place, and I just want us to be consistent across projects/devices.

Having a link to the General Disclaimer somewhere in the app, perhaps in the article footer or in the setting page would be a good idea.

Having a link to the General Disclaimer somewhere in the app, perhaps in the article footer or in the setting page would be a good idea.

Would that need to be localized for the specific language from which wiki one is reading, or would the English one be sufficient if the app settings is in English?

Good point. It would be nice to have it jump immediately to a localized version (especially if this link ends up in the article footer) but not necessary. The Disclaimer page has a pretty obvious language selector in the mobile view so the user can easily change it to another language variant.
