Malwarebytes + Airplane mode = battery drain on Android 8

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if any users have found a work around for this issue:

Starting at the beginning of June, on Android 8 devices, Malwarebytes drains the battery rapidly when the device is put into airplane mode.

I've been in touch with Malwarebytes support several times in the past 2 months and they said it's a known issue with Android 8, which they do not plan on fixing.  The solution they said is that a user must manually disable Malwarebytes before putting the phone in airplane mode.  When airplane mode is disabled, the user must manually re-start Malwarebytes.

I often put my phone in airplane mode at night when sleeping, but if I forget, then I get awoken by alerts of a dying battery.

Has anyone found a better workaround than having to remember to manually disable and re-enable Malwarebytes?  It's pretty frustrating.
