Implementing a public API to support ESET and other anti-malware solutions
Vivaldi is not currently supported by ESET (and other anti-malware solutions, such as new Microsoft Defender) on android due to the "lack of public API" (as per ESET's support answer).
Is there a possibility of implementing it?
I posted a while back on two Anti-Malware apps that protect the Vivaldi mobile browser and also have functional web filtering: Sophos Intercept X and Avira Pro.
I have no connection with either other than being a Vivaldi user.
Sophos has excellent detection rates as does Avira.However Sophos is entirely free with no ads while Avira is a paid antivirus. I pleaded with Bitdefender to add Vivaldi to their browser lists (which include Puffin and Dolphin!), but received no response. It came down to using one their covered browsers, so I looked elsewhere for an antivirus.
Subsequently, while trying various AV apps I came across Sophos and Avira.
I hope this may help until an API is issued
