Phishing is a criminal activity that uses social engineering (manipulating users to obtain confidential information). Phishing is often used to gain access to sensitive data such as bank account numbers, credit card numbers, PIN numbers or usernames and passwords.

We recommend that you keep Anti-Phishing enabled. ESET Endpoint Security for Android scans the URL addresses—all potential phishing attacks coming from websites or domains listed in the ESET malware database will be blocked, and a warning notification will be displayed informing you of the attack.

IMPORTANT: Anti-Phishing integrates with the most common web browsers available on Android OS. In general, Anti-Phishing protection is available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Opera Mini, Dolphin, Samsung and stock browsers that come pre-installed on Android devices. Other browsers will be listed as unprotected, and access to them can be blocked by the switch_off toggle .

You must enable Accessibility in Android system settings for ESET Anti-Phishing to function properly.

Allow accessibility permission on ESET Endpoint Security for Android installed from the .APK file on Android 13



For security reasons, Android 13 restricts accessibility permission to apps installed from .apk files. This prevents uninformed access to these permissions.

How ESET Endpoint Security for Android uses this permission
