I use F-Secure on my phone. Both SAFE and VPN Freedome.

I previously with Android 9 from time to time got a notification that Freedome was using the battery a bit excessive, but it's also required to let it handle the battery usage as otherwise it risk getting closed when it's supposed to be on 24/7. Similar with SAFE. SAFE even first time I installed it, warned about letting the phone handle battery saving automatic.

A tip/hint is to watch the phones possible built in battery usage feature. On my phone Freedome use around 3% and SAFE is not even on the list.
