Antivirus for Android: How does the Antivirus affect the battery?


Avira Antivirus Security for Android is an anti-theft product that helps the user to find their mobile device if it is lost and helps to protect the privacy if the device was stolen. Since it is not a widget, the app always runs in sleep mode, waiting for commands from the server. Therefore, it does not have any negative effect on the battery.
