Antiphishing and android launcher


Go to solution Solved by Marcos,

Recommended Posts

Hello from France, first, excuse me for my poor English writing... I installed mobile security and i encountered difficulties to activate the antiphishing... I could not activate accessibility for the different browsers because they did not appear in the list in which there was only Eset and Microsoft launcher (which is the launcher I use on my smartphone).. . I did some tests and found that by enabling accessibility for eset and microsoft launcher, the antiphishing protection for browsers worked. Is this normal? and isn't it a security risk to have to activate the accessibility mode for the launcher? Thank you.

It is important that ESET Mobile Security has accessibility services enabled. As for the MS Launcher, it's unrelated and it's fully at your discretion if you want to continue using it and grant permissions that it needs.

Hello,

unfortunately, there is a link between the two because if I don't give accessibility rights to microsoft launcher, eset mobile security's antiphishing stops working... MS launcher don't need accessibility rights to work... I haven't found any way to protect the browsers without giving accessibility  rights to Microsoft launcher... I'm not sure it makes sense, from a security point of view, to give such a right to the launcher to activate antiphishing protection...

This is the reason I'm trying to find out if it's normal to do this because it doesn't appear in the mobile security documentation

I've installed MS Launcher for a test and antiphishing worked even with accessibility disabled for MS Launcher.

Thank you for your test...

I don't understand why it works this way for me... As my phone is a poco (xiaomi), I disabled the mi battery saver for mobile security but it doesn't change anything... it's as if the launcher prevented mobile security from directly accessing the applications to be protected... it's weird...

I have tested with the original launcher of the phone and there's the same problem... It work a few minutes and the antiphishing protection suddenly stops 🙁

I followed the advice of the web page (autostart activated and battery saver on no restrictions) and everything seems to work well, without needing to give special rights to the launcher... Thank you very much for your help Marcos 🙂
