Bit of a bugger that I can't get past this... even when battery optimisation is set correctly. Either the phone can't handle it or the software doesn't recognise this. Honor7 - running Marshmallow. Uninstalled again.
3.5/5. Completely FREE, with No Catches and No Ads! needs anti-tamper alarm with movement and sound detection, loud alarm siren. CCTV feature that allows you to video record and/or photos to be taken the moment alarm is triggered. an ad blocker or option to hide ads in other apps for 2 weeks. EDIT: please FIX the MAJOR BUG that continually asks for password when using an app before grace period is up. 5 TIMES asked while writing this review! EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!!!! may un-install otherwise. please respond.
Device Admin Everything runs great...except for the screen that keeps asking me to make Sophos the device administrator. Sure I have the option to press cancel but that does nothing, the screen just pops up again a few minutes later. I don't want your security app to be the device Admin. I allowed it on my last phone and it caused all kinds of problems when it came time to transfer information from one phone to another. Other than that love the app.
The new version wants me to give battery permission to be on ALL the time. Previous version didn't and no indication of this when updating this. Shady! Don't install unless they disclose battery usage/change. Sounds shady without prior notice. And you cannot uninstall it. It states you need to deactivate it first but nowhere can you. Even the deactivate button the page doesn't work. It keeps telling you to deactivate it. Bad.
This a complete comprehensive security application that is put together well. AV Test scores the protection consistently at 100%. The only other security app to achieve this is Bitdefender. The difference is Sophos is completely free with no ads. In addition, Sophos is lighter on system resources than other fully loaded apps that I have tried. I like that you can set the updates and cloud scanning to WiFi only to save data. In addition, the low reputation app quarantine is fantastic; it prevents malicious apps from running without your consent. This is a wonderful application and I highly recommend it..
