Android 7 - Service stops when screen locks

Recommended Posts

I own a HTC One A9 phone, and the full paid version of MalwareBytes for Android phones (yes with latest updates).

For some reason, when ever my screen goes to sleep, within 15seconds, the SERVICES settings shows "Malwarebytes Safe Browsing Scanner" as OFF.

I keep turning it back ON, but as soon as the screen darkens, and I unlock my phone, the service is OFF. It doesn't happen when I lock my phone via the Power button.

I have given the app full permissions and also System permissions. The downside is, if I remove the timeout on my screen is massive battery drain for one, and also it heats up too much. So the screen saver has to stay on.

Any suggestions please?

Hi Vabados

I think I've resolved it. I usually ignore the MB warning about my phone having the developer settings available. I haven't needed it for a while, so I've gone with MB's suggestion to turn it off. Voila! The Services option for browser protection stays on! I've locked the screen, turned phone off and on, and the settings now stays on. Thanks guys.
