Hi Jacque,

This is the expected behaviour. The remote debugger is included in the
standalone when you click on the Test button, even if you don't select it
in the Inclusions (the same applies to Android Internet permission).

See the discussion in this bug report:

If you think this is not expected behaviour, please file a report for us to

A workaround to prevent the remote debugger from being included in the
standalone is to turn off the wifi in your Android device (or connect to a
different network than the one your machine is connected to). I have not
tested it but I suppose it will work.
