Android 4.2.2, and Android 7.1.1 updates status ?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

why are the current updates, so different between a Samsung Galaxy 3 mini Android 4.2.2 (GT-I8200N), and the LENOVO Motorola, Modell Moto E4 (XT1762), Android Os 7.1.1?

App version: 2.0.5.3 Version der Schadsoftware-DB: 2018.09.11.0. By a Samsung Galaxy 3 mini Android 4.2.2 (GT-I8200N) Android device.

App version: 3.0.4.3 Version der Schadsoftware-DB: 2018.09,12.01 By a LENOVO Motorola, Modell Moto E4 (XT1762), Android Os 7.1.1 Android device.

This App, I mean Malwarebytes for mobile, on Android.

Something lags behind ...

 

What´s going on in this issue?

Hi @MAM,

Different Android OS versions support different versions of Malwarebytes for Android.  We develop based on the most current Android OS version at the time.  Sometimes older OS versions don't support the new features we add to Malwarebytes for Android.  Therefore, these older OS versions are limited to the version of Malwarebytes for Android developed during that time.

Hope that makes sense,

Nathan

Hello, not really. Or I have an understanding problem in this issue.

Let me explain to you:

This 2.0.5.3  old version of Malwarebytes for mobile,  not developed anymore, is that so?

Or I'll put the reverse question right away, will there be a further development in version 2.0.5.3, and updates in the future?

@MAM Android 4.2.2 is not supported by any 3 versions. Unfortunately, your Android 4.2.2 will not get any app updates.

Our updates are available for Android 4.4 and above.

Great, now I'm no longer protected with my old device. I am still a paying customer.

Hello, will this old device still be provided with malware definitions in the future?

So, I get the right updates too?

Hi @MAM,

Yes, we still update the malware database daily on the older version.  It just doesn't have some of the more advanced features which don't work on the older OS.
