It appears that myself and others have noticed that Android 10 has
removed the VPN status and connection details from the top-down
notifications UI.

If a VPN is active, the Key icon appears, but pulling down the
Notifications bar shows nothing.

This used to be a quick and easy way to verify WG connectivity, active
tunnel, and amount of bandwidth utilized.

This can still be accomplished but is done by long pressing the
wireguard toggle in the quick settings (or opening the wireguard
application) then selecting the active tunnel and viewing the transfer
details on the bottom.

I'm sure this will come up again, but wanted to share with you all.

Thanks for all the work Jason, et al. put into this project. Its
greatly appreciated.

That's right, because it was moved further up into the Quick Settings
panel. If you pull again you will see a 'Network is being monitored'
warning below the quick settings tiles, clicking which will take you to
VPN settings.
