Works okay but you have to choose between web filtering or device encryption pin entry on startup. The device can be encrypted but if you enable pin entry to start android up, the Sophos accessibility service that powers web filtering will not run. An oversight I've not come across in other apps. Sophos is a good lightweight package overall though
Previously a five star app, the constant crashing on Android 8, requiring the app to be restarted, and always open in the background, has relegated it to Norton for Windows status. Utter cunting tripe at the moment. Yes, we know that the issue is with Oreo, don't need to hear that again, just get it fixed, and whilst you are at it, the heuristics need some significant tweaking. One star.
Noticed it didn't pick up a Trojan! that Malwarebytes found? And it has been crashing a lot of the time on starting the app, before the update get back to you! if it's still doing it. not sure why I need to give it permissions in superuser when Malwarebytes you don't??
After installing and setting permissions, a dialog box came up that read "this copy of Sophos antivirus is corrupt. Please uninstall immediately and download from Google play instead" however... I did download it from Google play 🙄 6 November 2017 Installed successfully this time and it helped me remove low rated apps and files and the scheduled scan is awesome. Happy to update to 5 stars.
Notifies you about low reputation apps but only designates them by a number. You have no idea what they are. And you can't just remove all low reputation apps because Sophos includes things you know are legitimate and that you really need.
This app is amazing! Does take some setting changes so it doesn't try too hard but this is the best app of its kind I've ever used. And I've gone through a lot of them. To name a few I've used AVG, McAfee, Avast, Webroot and CM Security and Bitdefender this one performs better on all aspects. Bring Sophos Home to android please :D an ETA would be awesome. It's stopped flagging my built-in web browser as adware after a conversation with the Sophos team but now it says my built in Software Update app is a PUA. Would love for that too stop. The allow button is also, once again. Hidden and unable to be clicked on. It's on the ZTE Axon 7
