I am trying to figure out what data is sent via the device manager in an unencrypted state, and what is encrypted. Does the Device Manger start a generic connection to the server, or is the device info sent in the clear?

Just looking for some confirmation of what is sent this way, vs. a Cell connection or WIFI.

From what I can tell, Device Manager connections and WIFI connections should be similar, but does either send info in the clear?

I am trying to find the smaller footprint connection. All are going to leak some info, I assume. Where can I find info on what is sent?
