Mobile Security flagging KidsGuard App

I have Bitdefender Mobile Security running on my child's Android phone. I installed KidsGuard, which is a monitoring app for their protection. However, Bitdefender detects it as an unwanted app and provides an uninstall option.

How can I mark this App as safe and therefore not have it detected as a potentially unwanted app?

    You cannot set exclusion in bitdefender mobile security for android. Both monitoring and keylogger applications are usually detected by majority of av vendors since they track user data . You will have to look for an alternative application which may not be detected by bitdefender.

  • Well this is dumb. I'm a IT security professional and need some tools on my device that are in fact malware, but malware I want and choose (Like Zanti by Zimporium). Bitdefender, please add an exclusion list!
