Real-time protection

This option allows you to enable and disable the Real-time scanner. This scanner launches automatically at system startup and scans the files you interact with. After it is mounted, it automatically scans the Download folder, APK installation files and all files on the SD card.

ESET LiveGrid® reputation system

ESET LiveGrid® is a preventative system designed to provide your device with additional security. It constantly monitors your system’s running programs and processes against the latest intelligence collected from millions of ESET users worldwide. This allows us to offer all ESET users better and more precise proactive protection and scanning speeds. We recommend that you enable this feature. We recommend that you enable this feature.

ESET LiveGrid® feedback system

The feedback system allows us to collect anonymous statistics, crash reports and diagnostics data about suspicious objects, which we process automatically to create the detection mechanism in our cloud system.

Detect potentially unwanted applications

An unwanted app is a program that contains adware, installs toolbars, traces your search results or has other unclear objectives. In some situations, you may believe that the benefits of the unwanted app outweigh the risks. For this reason, ESET assigns these applications to a lower-risk category compared to other types of malicious software.

Detect potentially unsafe applications

There are many legitimate applications whose function is to simplify the administration of networked devices. However, in the wrong hands, they may be misused for malicious purposes. The Detect Potentially Unsafe Applications option allows you to monitor and block these apps. Potentially unsafe applications is the classification used for commercial, legitimate software. This classification includes remote access tools, password-cracking applications and keyloggers.

Block unresolved threats

This setting determines the action that will be performed after the scan is complete and threats are found. If you enable this option, ESET Endpoint Security for Android will block access to files categorized as threats.

Removable media

You can choose an action after removable media is inserted into the device:

Always scanremovable media will always be scanned

Do not scanremovable media will not be scanned

Show me optionsoption to scan a removable media will be shown after the media is inserted

Detection modules database updates

This option allows you to set the time interval for the frequency that threat database updates are automatically downloaded. These updates are issued as needed when a new threat is added to the database. We recommend leaving this set to the default value (Every day).

Custom max database age

This setting defines the time between threat database updates, after which you will be notified to update ESET Endpoint Security for Android.

Update server

Using this option, you can choose to update your device from the Pre-release server. Pre-release updates have gone through thorough internal testing and will be available to the general public soon. You can benefit from enabling pre-release updates by accessing to the most recent detection methods and fixes. However, pre-release updates might not be stable enough at all times. The list of current modules can be found in the About section: tap the Menu icon action_button_menu in the ESET Endpoint Security for Android main screen and tap About > ESET Endpoint Security for Android. We recommended that basic users leave the Release server option selected by default.

ESET Endpoint Security for Android allows you to create copies of update files that can be used to update other devices on the network. The use of a Local mirror—a copy of the update files in the LAN environment—is convenient because the update files do not need to be repeatedly downloaded from the vendor update server by each mobile device. Detailed information on how to configure the mirror server using ESET Endpoint products for Windows can be found in this document.
