That is unfortunate that the issue could not be discussed publicly, as I would love to see the developments on this issue as well and have not seen any official posts regarding Android 11. Using the option for "apps and VPNs," I receive an error that it is an invalid certificate. It will let me install it as a regular CA certificate, but it seems that does not allow it to intercept app traffic.

Hi Cody, For Android 7.0 and above you need to install the Burp CA certificate at the OS level on a rooted device - the way the certificate trust settings are managed were changed in that version so that user supplied certificates are no longer trusted. Having said that, i would expect to see connection errors being reported rather than an invalid certificate - are you able to confirm the complete error that you are seeing?
