When user uses custom electrum server, make him aware that his addresses/txids sre still leaked to a Push Notificatinos serer

See original GitHub issue

@ncoelho i think we need your brilliance in making this work

or, quote:

I highly suggest that if someone sets a custom Electrum server, the push functionality is turned off and has to explicitly be opt-in​

also, nothing is ever sent to PN server until the user presses OK on this dialog box: (its displayed when user goes to Receive screen)


perhaps this message should be reworded to explicitly include a statement that PushNotifications mean that there is a PN server that needs to see your addresses to track them to actually send notifications
