The Android ecosystem has issues with how the OEM Battery Optimization functions.
As we don’t want to force our users to whitelist or give any permissions to the Honeygain app we have implemented all possible measures to keep the app alive. But it’s getting more difficult to achieve, especially with the latest updates...
