  1. Include all security warning events in Android app log

    I encountered a webpage security warning apparently generated by the app and immediately chose to block, but afterwards wanted to investigate. Cannot find this event logged in the app, so cannot check threat details or even verify that the warning was indeed a genuine Sophos warning. Please include all threat detections in the app log.

    [Note to Sophos: If the scenario described above suggests that I encountered a fake warning, then please let me know!]

  2. Sophos antivirus for android should not consider the presence of root as a threat if root access is disabled in Cyanogenmod.

    Cyanogenmod versions 12 and 13 which are based on lollipop and marshmallow respectively contain root, but root access is disabled by default and to enable it one must enable developer settings and then enable root access to apps, to adb or to both, or to leave it disabled. http://www.cyanogenmod.org/blog/security-and-you (Root access management in Cyanogenmod explained)
    However Sophos considers it as a threat to the device but in my opinion that depends more on the user and disabling the feature is pretty good security in this regard, of course not perfect, but it's not like there aren't apps that can root…

  3. Allow definition of exact scanning time/day

    For special purpose devices, like kiosks, please allow the definition of the scan time/day from the server. So it can be done in off business hours

  4. Silent scanning mode

    Implement a mode, in which the scans will run in silent mode and no pop-up or other notification will happen, even after a detection. Only the reporting back to the console should happen

  5. Automatic removal of malware/PUA apps

    In case that malware or PUA are found on a mobile device it would be great if SMC would automatically initiate a task that removes the corresponding app (either with/ or without user interaction).

  7. Do not autoscan SD cards on boot unless requested

    Every time I boot my device the external SD card is scanned automatically, which is quite annoying as it contains some 55 gigabytes of mp3 files. An option to scan external and/or internal SD cards only on demand would be highly appreciated. Maybe as a notification in the notification bar, "scan now / skip scan".

  8. Streamline App Protection password input when I open a protected app

    Currently, when the App Protection password screen pops up, I have to (1) tap once to bring up the keyboard, (2) type the password, then (3) tap OK to open the protected app. Any way to eliminate (1) and (3) to streamline? I.e., when the App Protection screen pops up, so does the keyboard; when the password is identified as correct--rather than redundantly "OK'ed,"--the app just opens? Two keystrokes eliminated, but it would speed up phone use considerably! Thanks!

  9. Better training materials.

    I just received an email, from me, that still does not tell me how to activate the remote feature. It states: This command locates your device using GPS and/or Wi-Fi. As a response you receive a first text message with an approximate location. After 10 minutes a second text message with an exact location is sent. The remote locate command text must have the following format:

    locate password
    password as defined in Loss & Theft.

    So, is this saying that I text my own phone and as the text "locate (password)"? This may be clear to programmers, but not to…

  12. Report thiefs location after SIM change in addition to the new phone number

    If a thief replaces the SIM card in an SMSec protected phone, we send the new phone number to the preregistered number. Please add the location of the devices at that time to the message
