Hi Support,

I just downloaded Malwarebytes on my Android device. Malwrebytes requires me to enable Usage Access for Malwarebytes app, otherwise I won't be completely secured.

I would like to ask the question as below.

Q1. What is "Usage Access" ? 
Q2. What is purpose for enabling the "Usage Access" for this app ?
Q3. Why I need to enable to "Usage Access" for Malwarebytes app ?
Q4. If I disable the "Usage Access" for Malwarebytes app , what is the impact ?

Sorry for the delay in answering this.  When looking up your answer, I realized that I had not pushed the newest user guide out.  Thanks for the reminder!


Usage Access is a privilege on your device which allows Malwarebytes to provide real-time protection rather than just scanning on demand.  Its a new setting in Android 5.0.  If you deny that access, the program is limited to scanning your device when requested.
