On mobile devices, app background execution time is restricted to minimize impact on device performance. Mobile Security for Business is designed to have a minimal impact on mobile devices' resources, based on app development guidelines from Apple and Google.
- On Android and ChromeOS devices, app background execution time is limited to ensure apps don’t consume memory and battery resources unless needed to run a task. For more information, see Android’s Background Work Overview.
- On iOS and iPadOS devices, background execution time for apps is limited to 5 seconds, by default. For more information, see Apple’s Extending your app’s background execution time.
To prevent device performance degradation, settings are updated when the app is opened, or via background actions triggered by the Nebula admin.
