I would like to ask about the "Device Administrator" option in Malwarebytes for Android app. I understand that this option exists mainly in order to prevent MB being uninstalled by malware and to assist the user during ransomware attack.
My question is, does this option also affect the Malwarebytes ability to scan the apps installed in the system root partition? That is, is there a possibility that if the user does not grant the Device Administrator privileges then MB won't have enough permissions to scan the content of the system partition, and malware that installs disguising itself as a system app might go unscanned and undetected?
I apologize if this was already asked and answered before; I tried searching the forums but couldn't find clarification in this matter.
