Automatic Scans

In addition to the manually triggered Device scan, ESET Mobile Security also offers automatic scans.



Scan level

There are 2 scan levels to choose from. This setting will apply to both the On-charger scan and the Scheduled scan:

Smart — Smart scan will scan installed applications, DEX files (executable files for Android OS), SO files (libraries), archives with a maximum scanning depth of 3 nested archives and SD card content.

In-depth — In-depth scan will scan all file types regardless of their extension in both internal memory and SD card.


On-charger scan

When this is selected, the scan will start automatically when the device is in an idle state, fully charged and connected to a charger.


Scheduled scan

Scheduled scan allows you to schedule a Device scan to run automatically at a predefined time. To schedule a scan, tap the switch switch_off next to Scheduled scan and specify the dates and times for the scan to be launched.
