Intercept X For Mobile App Stops Responding


Hey Community,

Intercept X for mobile (Android free version)stops responding at random times and pop up box reads "sophos has stopped responding" giving the option to 'wait' or 'close app' and the  anti-virus doesn't scan daily as it should sometimes and the latest issue is sophos in accessbility is turned off and so is web filtering. Web filtering will power back on but it's not staying on. As it stands right now, I'm not sure if my device is protected or not.

Any suggestions would greatly appreciated.

Thank you

  • Thank you for reaching the community forum.

    May we know what steps have you taken to resolve the issue? There are quite a lot of reasons why an android app stops working, and this includes the device hardware and OS version. I've tried checking and found this forum. You may try applying the steps mentioned and let us know.

    Also, have you allowed all necessary permission for the Scanning upon setting up the free version? You should be asked to setting-up a scheduled scan when configuring the apps after installing.

    Thank you for responding. I've restarted my device more than once hoping to resolve issue, and as I stated, I have more than one issue going on but the issues started with anti-virus skipping days it would scan. The web filtering, sophos accessibility and the app not responding are the new issues. I've shared log files with one of your team members concerning the scanner but haven't heard anything back yet. Restarting device is the only troubleshooting I know to do.

    I will check the forum you suggested as well.

    Thank you Glenn, for your help.

  • I've got the same problem as FormerMember. I've been using Intercept X for many years and I don't want to move to another app because it's very precise for my daily usage (testing third party apps, games, etc). Even when I were using Android 12 the problem started to show every time I launched Intercept so I think that the problem is in some previous Sophos update. All necessary permissions are granted as always it was, even reinstalling app using config backup did not solve this issue.
