    Hi,

    I've just downloaded ESET for mobile on my Android phone (HTC Desire S) and it is asking me to allow it access to device administrator - but all the warnings say that it will be able to wipe my phone etc. and I wanted to check that it is completely safe before I do so.


    ALSO - has the uninstall issure been fixed does anyone know? Don't want to give it DA access if it would require a reset to remove the app in the future.

    Thanks,

    Mediamule

    Hello,

    It is safe to allow ESET Mobile Security device administrator access.

    The fix for uninstallation issues was implemented a few builds ago. As far as I know, there have not been any reports since then.

    Regards,
