Battery protector

Many device manufacturers introduced battery protector or battery saving options in Android 5 and later devices. This feature turns off the Anti-Phishing functionality in ESET Mobile Security when turned on. On devices that have 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 manufacturers documentation.
