I saw an interview on Fox news about haw practically all flashlight programs contain malware. They also said you needed to do a factory reset to clear out the RATs. (Remote access trojans) The following is a link to the report.

Does Webroot protect against this?
Webroot mobile used to have a security app and a browser app. I never used the browser since everything I have is synced to Vivladi. Webroor security was alwys running on my phone. Now it appears that the security and the browser have been merged into one app and my android phone is only secure when I use the Webroot Browser. Since everything I have is synced to Vivaldi, I don’t want the Webroot browser. Now this once useful app is useless. Since Webroot was gobbled up by Carbonite it has ceased to be what it once was. After over ten years when my subscription expires I will sadly being saying good bye to Webroot.
[b]Webroot SecurityAnywhere Mobile Complete[/b] Webroot SecureAnywhere Mobile Complete is a balanced security product, which has a feature-limited free version. For users who require more functionality, a premium version is available. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/15899iBD9E6A08DF7D8711.jpg[/img] [b]Installation[/b] We installed Webroot SecureAnywhere from the Google Play Store. Once the licence agreement has been accepted, the user has to create a Webroot Account or log in with an existing one. The password for the account has to have at least 6 characters. The product is then registered as a device administrator. Starting the program When the program is first started, an alert in yellow points out that the Android lock screen has not been activated, and the installation of apps from unknown sources is allowed. When both of these problems have been fixed, the status display turns green and makes clear that the product is now protected
Battery Usage on AndroidKnowledge Base
[h2]Question[/h2]I'm seeing massively high battery usage from Webroot on my Android. Why? [h2]Answer[/h2]If you run a scan immediately after unplugging from a power source, the metrics presented in the Android OS battery usage meter are skewed by virtue of the fact that it starts tabulating battery usage immediately following the disconnection from the power source. Likewise, readings may be similarly skewed if you have just installed Webroot for the first time, ran the first scan, and then checked consumption in Webroot's own App Inspector. Most battery monitors work like how gas mileage on a car is calculated for a single trip. Immediately when you turn on the car, it shows you 0.0 MPG, and as you start to drive, that number increases. Not having enough data to go off of, the results are skewed until enough data is available for the reading to be statistically valid. Try leaving your Android on for a while and checking back in again later. You will

[b]Question:[/b] Why am I still receiving blocked texts on my Android Device? [b]Answer:[/b] This is an issue that occurs because of limitations applied to the Android OS after the 4.4 update. For security reasons, third party applications are no longer able to offer this functionality without creating a default messenger application specifically for their product. [b]Question:[/b] Why does it show that it is being blocked? [b]Answer:[/b] Because technically, we are catching it and attempting to block the sms. We are simply not able to given the limitations provided. [b]Question:[/b] Will malicious links still be blocked? [b]Answer:[/b] Of course! You will still receive a notification in regards to a text containing a malicious link. This happens regardless of whether or not the number is in your block list.
