Huawei is a popular android manufacturer who has taken it upon themselves to modify android and add extra battery protection. If you leave this feature turned on, the Huawei phone will likely kill off pcTattletale after a few days to try and save battery life. It can also alert the user that pcTattletale is using their battery in the background (not good). For these reasons let us disable Huawei’s battery saver. It is easy:
First just pick “settings” from the home screen:
Next Pick Battery:
Now click the cog up above Battery (NOTE: Your Huawei phone may look different here):
Disable power sensitive app notification settings:
Newer Huawei Devices Stop pcTattletale from Restarting
If you have a newer Huawei device you will notice pcTattletale will not start back up with it. If the phone looses power or is restarted for any reason pcTattletale will not start back up.
Let’s get this fixed. It is easy.
Your battery screen will look a little different and have an “Apps Launch” section. Just select that.
Then pick pcTattletale (security services). You will notice everything is already turned on and there is nothing to do. Just press OK.
Finally you will see that “Manager all Automatically” is no longer checked. Neither is security services. pcTattletale will now start back up with your Huawei device.
Once you have done these steps pcTattletale will work a lot more reliably on your Huawei phone or tablet.
