Battery protector

Many device manufacturers introduced battery protectors or battery-saving options in Android 6 and later devices. This feature turns off the Anti-Phishing functionality in ESET Mobile Security when turned on. On devices with this feature, you will need to create an exception to allow the ESET Mobile Security Anti-Phishing functionality to work with the battery-saving feature turned on. To create an exception, check your device manufacturer's documentation.
