Why does F-Secure SAFE go inactive on my Huawei device?


F-Secure SAFE stops running when the display is turned off.


Due to the aggressive power management functionality in Huawei Android devices, the F-Secure SAFE app may get killed by the software in an attempt to extend battery life. This may affect the Family Rules feature in F-Secure SAFE preventing it from working properly.


To ensure F-Secure SAFE is working as effectively as possible, add F-Secure SAFE to the Protected apps list on your Huawei Android device.

  1. On your Huawei device, go to Settings > Advanced Settings.
  2. Select Battery manager > Protected apps.
  3. Find F-Secure SAFE from the list and toggle the switch to the On position.

Attention: The Ultra battery (ultra power saving) mode in Huawei devices turns everything off except for Phone, SMS and Contacts. F-Secure SAFE is also turned off.
