Support & Protection App consumes large amounts of battery power.

Verizon,

FYI - Just like my Samsung Galaxy S4, my new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 battery was being drained by the app called Support & Protection. With it installed the battery % went from 100% to 75% within 10 minutes. With it turned off battery % goes from 100% to 95% with in an 1 hour. There is something definitely going on with this app that makes it consume battery power very quickly. When you look at the app the running section of the application menu it has 2 processes and 4 services running compared to other apps that use 1 process and 1 services. At this time I've turned it off to save battery power.
