Mobile Security is using battery - NOTICE

On my new Huawei nova 3e I continually get the message that Mobile Security (Trend Micro) is using battery. Perhaps this mobile has its own mobile security?  Perhaps I should uninstall TMMS?  I last year bought a new computer and don't run TM on it even though I've paid for it until September 2019, because it was interfering with the Microsoft Security.  On the advice of the IT person who set it up.

Hi jtannoch

RE: On my new Huawei nova 3e I continually get the message that Mobile Security (Trend Micro) is using battery.

The notification that Mobile Security is using the battery is caused by your mobile phone's services. If you want to disable it, you may long press the notification until a toggle shows. Tap on the toggle to turn it off. 

RE: Perhaps this mobile has its own mobile security?  Perhaps I should uninstall TMMS?

I've been checking Huawei Nova 3i's specifications on their website and no native security software was mentioned. In this case, third-party security software such as Trend Micro Mobile Security is needed to ensure your phone's security. 

RE: I last year bought a new computer and don't run TM on it even though I've paid for it until September 2019, because it was interfering with the Microsoft Security.

Trend Micro is specifically designed to combat all types of malware, whereas Windows Defender mainly protects you from spyware.

Thank you very much for your detailed response.  It is rare these days, and I appreciate it.  So you think I should install Trend Micro on my computer - it will not interfere with the performance of Windows?

No worries, it's my pleasure. :) I highly suggest you install the Trend Micro program on your computer but to also check its system requirements to avoid any performance issues. 

Here's the list of system requirements:

And here's the guide to install the program: 

Installing Trend Micro Security

Let me know how it goes. :)
