Have had my note 4 for about 2 weeks now. Been noticing that my battery has been draining quickly. Checked the battery status and got the following:

com.android.keyguard - 54%
screen - 12%
android system - 9%
Google services - 7%
cell standby - 5%

Any ideas as to why my battery is being drained so much by "com.android.keyguard"? Does anyone else have this problem?

Thanks for the help.
 
I have the standard pattern lock on my screen with the time widget. Just removed the pattern lock and went back to the swipe method and it looks like com.android.keyguard is gone. Its not showing this as draining any battery. Just wondering why it would take up so much battery with just a pattern lock.

It's probably the clock. I use the pattern lock w/o any battery issues.

Hi Ennaira,

Welcome to the forum!

As explained above, the com.google.keyguard is a part of the Android operating system and therefore neither a virus or something that can/should be removed.

I would recommend that you try to remove any custom lock screen and/or widgets from your lock screen (also as mentioned above) to see if this solves your problem.

Best of luck!

Regards,
Eric.
