When I activate safe browsing scanner, I'm directed to enable accessibility for Malwarebytes.  Once done, I receive a screen that says the following:

Screenshot_20171027-140820.thumb.png.f247b189648101a9ef200405f2dc19c6.png

So with that:

1.  Do I need to make a choice between having an encrypted phone OR using safe browsing?  (maybe I'm missing something)

2.  If it is the case that I must choose between the two, is Malwarebytes covering me in the same way that my phone's encryption does?

3.  Is there a way to circumvent this? (I'm not rooted)

4.  Or, will my phone still be encrypted, not using the screen lock for enhancement, in which case I question, will Malwarebytes be replacing that enhancement or is there just reduced security for my phone regarding its encryption?

All thoughts and suggestions will be appreciated!  Thanks in advance!

This warning is shown when enabling any accessibility service. This a bug in Android.

This does not effect your encryption, however if you are using on-boot pin or pattern (or other lock), it disables it, later you may re-enable it again.

Also you can see same problem reported for other accessibility service using apps.
