Dr.Web Security Space for Android updated to version 12.6.9 and Anti-virus Dr.Web Light updated to version 11.5.5

March 26, 2021

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web has updated its Dr.Web Security Space for Android to version 12.6.9 and Anti-virus Dr.Web Light to version 11.5.5. The updates deliver feature upgrades and resolve existing software issues.

Changes affecting both products:

  • An issue preventing notifications from being displayed correctly on certain Xiaomi devices has been resolved;
  • A problem causing the application to terminate abnormally on some devices running Android 11 has been fixed.

Changes affecting Dr.Web Security Space for Android:

  • The update changes the way the application requests access permissions in order to comply with recent changes in Google's background location data usage policy.

If you downloaded the Dr.Web application from Google Play, the updates will be downloaded and installed automatically. If you’ve disabled automatic updating on your device, go to Google Play, select Dr.Web Security Space, Dr.Web Security Space Life or Dr.Web Anti-virus Light on the application list, and click "Update”.

To update your software via the Doctor Web site, you need to download a new distribution file. If you’ve enabled the “New app version” option in the settings, a notification will be displayed whenever the virus databases are updated. You can start the download directly from this dialogue box.
