Introduction

The ESET SMS Tool allows you to use the ESET features that require SMS and Call services permissions in:

ESET Mobile Security

 Call Filter

 SMS Commands

ESET Parental control

 SOS Button

 Parental Messages

ESET Endpoint Security for Android

 Call Filter

 SMS Commands

These features were removed due to Google Play restrictions.

On January 9, 2019, Google Play implemented restrictions for the use of the SMS and Call services permissions necessary for the core functionality of the SMS and Call filter features. This resulted in removing features that used Call and SMS services from ESET products available on Google Play, such as Call filter in ESET Mobile Security and ESET Endpoint Security for Android or Parental messages from ESET Parental Control.
