TorGuard drains battery when on cellular network

Rate this question

Question

sparc64

Using Motorola One smartpone with latest Android 9  and noticed that TorGuard app drains battery very quickly (roughly 50% per day). That doesn't depend on how much data were actually used, battery consumption is ridiculously high either way.

I would've assumed that this is just how things are on smartphones but when using WiFi instead of mobile internet battery consumption is back to normal -  I can't even see TorGuard app in battery usage statistic.

Does anyone else experience same behaviour? Is it normal for TorGuard app to consume MUCH more energy when using  mobile internet or that is a bug?

Hi

is your battery consumption normal when on cellular network without VPN? My battery drains fast because I have a bad connection and the phone tries to connect ever so often.

Yes, with direct connection battery consumption us much better.

Do you use TorGuard VPN over cellular network? Would be interested to see if app causes significant increase in battery consumption on your device.
