Proper use of "payment protection" in Mobile Security 6.0.25

I hope I did not miss the obvious in my searching. I am trying to fully understand the intended use of the mobile version of payment protection. 

The Payment protection feature looks like it is for "payment" apps only such as Google pay and dedicated bank apps not browsers (like the desk top version).

If I check off my browser under manage and open the browser from normal icon (for non payment browsing) ESET flags that with a message the app was opened without full protection message.

Is my deduction accurate that this feature is not for browsers were payment "could" be entered and is only for dedicated "apps" ? 

Sorry if I missed something -- Thanks Ebill

Correct. The Payment protection screen reads: "Add additional layer of protection to banking and payment applications", ie. it's enabled for applications, not for browsers. Since applications on Android run in an isolated sandbox, I assume that it's not possible to redirect to a secure browser by design.
