To help prevent the SEP Mobile app from being put to sleep by the Android operating system, Broadcom has introduced the Battery Optimization Option (BOO) permission for SEP Mobile.
Enabling this permission makes proper configuration (i.e the SEP Mobile being on the battery optimization whitelist) required, otherwise SEP Mobile will report a yellow health alert for the device.
The intent of this article is to provide administrators with information on what end users should expect when this new permission is enabled.
Both Android and iOS now aggressively manage installed apps in an effort to preserve battery life. Apps which do not appear to have user interaction will be marked for sleeping. Since SEP Mobile is intended to run in the background, this makes it a common target on either mobile platform to be marked as an app wasting battery, and then be put on the sleeping apps list.
By requiring that the BOO setting be enabled on Android, it is possible to prevent the SEP Mobile app from being marked for sleep by the OS.
