App Permissions

Recommended Posts

Hi @P_Deib,

Device administration is needed for ransomware remediation.

Malwarebytes for Android does not use device administration rights for anything but this purpose.

Ransomware is particularity dangerous, and if given device administration rights (accidentally), it can render the device unusable.  By giving Malwarebytes for Android device administration rights, we can remediate ransomware even after it is given privileged rights.

For example, some ransomware may change the device’s user pin.  We can remediate this if given device admin rights to reset the pin (via SMS commands).

Also, device admin rights protect Malwarebytes for Android from being uninstalled by malware.

If you would prefer to not give Malwarebytes for Android device administration rights and forgo protection from ransomware, our application will continue to run without those rights.

I also had this same question. we need to permit sometimes unnecessary things for downloading apps. there is some risk of Malware attacks. for details, you may visit Mobile Re[pair Dubai. these type of permissions may give us insecurity.
