Permission management

In Android 6 (Marshmallow), Google introduced a new Permission Management system and ESET Endpoint Security for Android is compatible with it. Apps designed for Android 6.0 will ask for permissions when you start using them. Instead of giving an app access during installation, you’ll be prompted the first time the app wants to access a specific device function.

ESET Endpoint Security for Android requires access to the following functions:

Accessibility—required for the proper functionality of ESET Anti-Phishing

Contacts—required for Anti-Theft and Call Filter


Phone—Anti-Theft and Call Filter

SMS—Anti-Theft and Call Filter

Storage—Antivirus and Anti-Theft

Admin is allowed to disable monitoring of these permissions in Settings > Permission notifications.
