Anti-Theft drains my Galaxy S4 mini’s battery!! - 03-14-2014, 05:51 PM,

I was install Anti-Theft app for tracking purpose and everything is working fine, battery lasted throughout the night from less than 30%. Now on my S4 mini it drains the battery whilst phone is idle from ~80% to total drain. Setting are the same.. Continuous tracking has been reduced and switch off and still no luck. In settings, under battery. Anti theft has hogged the battery whilst idle.
Please give me tips to resolve this battery draining issue.

An Anti-theft solution would really be waste of processing resources and battery life. Each application is running in a locked environment in your device and it cannot really infiltrate or break anything on other applications nor on the OS.

The only thing I'd be looking into are malicious applications that are sending your private info to a remote server. In order to do this, a user would need to accept the list of permissions to access their private content.

Follow these simple two rules to protect yourself about such malicious applications: - Never install applications that just came out on the Market.
