Running a scheduled scan

Anti-Virus has a number of limitations:

  • When Anti-Virus is running, a threat detected in the external memory of the device (such as an SD card) cannot be neutralized automatically in the Work profile (Applications with a briefcase icon, Configuring the Android work profile). Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android does not have access to external memory in the Work profile. Information about detected objects is displayed in app notifications. To neutralize objects detected in the external memory, the object files have to be deleted manually and the device scan restarted.
  • Due to technical limitations, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android cannot scan files with a size of 2 GB or more. During a scan, the app skips such files without notifying you that such files were skipped.

To configure the full scan schedule for a device:

  1. In the main window of Kaspersky Endpoint Security, tap SettingsApp settings → Anti-Virus Scan settings.
  2. Tap Schedule, and then select the full scan frequency:
    • Weekly
    • Daily
    • Disabled
    • After database update
  3. Click Start day, and then select the day of the week when you want to start the full scan.
  4. Click Start time, and then select the time for starting the full scan.

A full scan of the device is started according to schedule.

On Android 12 or later, the app may perform this task later than specified if the device is in battery saver mode.
