Since installing your app onto my galaxy s4 with android 4.3 I noticed with the phone in standby it dies in 12 hours well the app is installed.

 

if I remove the app, I go back to a week of battery power well in standby, and minimal useage.

I've been thinking about putting the MBAM app on my Nexus 7 tablet running Android 4.4.2, but I thought I'd check here first, since I'm concerned about its effect on my tablet's battery.  The first poster seems to imply that the MBAM app drains the battery even when his phone is in standby mode.  My tablet can access the Internet only via wi-fi.  When wi-fi isn't on, will the MBAM app still impact battery use?

fivealive,

I would like you to perform this test please:

Install MBAM Mobile. Charge your phone to 100%. Leave it in Standby for 12 hours as you indicated. Then show a screenshot of the power usage menu.

Perform the same experiment with MBAM Mobile uninstalled. Leave it in Standby for a week as you indicated. Then show a screenshot of the power usage menu.

This data will be very useful to us.

Thank you!

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes support, my name is Fernando Gil and I will be assisting you with your inquiries.

 

Battery life for MBAM mobile is about normal at 2% an hour. It may depend  on whether you have other security apps running at the same time, scanning etc. You may want to check other settings on your device.

 

If you open the app and go to the Settings, select Notifications. You have the option to turn the Notification icon which can make some impact on the battery life.

 

Also, the Notifications such as the scan result, scan progress and database updates, scheduled scans can be turned off. This will  make some difference as well.

 

If only using the application through a Wi-Fi connection, you may disable the settings for the time that you are not using the app, although the Realtime protection should always remain enabled.

I really wish I had that kind of battery life lol.

 

Of course, I have 6 Google accounts logged in, plus my phone is 2.5 years old.....

 

Glad the reinstall seems to have fixed your issues. though.
