    I'm looking for a way to be able to mark certain wireless connections as trusted.

    I'd like to be in location A and see an open wireless node and be able to add it and do something simple like check a wiki article or look at google maps. It seems like when I connect to a new network however, it checks my email, and allows apps like facebook, twitter, etc... to also update, sending sensitive info over an untrusted network.

    Anyone know a way to identify my home and office wifi as trusted and restrict application access based on this?

    As far as I know, there's no way of restricting specific wifi networks with what they can be used for. However, I think that if you change your email to check for emails manually, unless you open the mail app it should not connect to the wifi. I think it should be the same with facebook too, if you don't open it it shouldn't connect. Hope that can help.

    That's unfortunate, but thanks for the info, I was holding out hope there would be a hidden setting.
