HIgh CPU usage and battery drain on Android 9 after update to McAfee Security

After upgrading my McAfee Security to version the battery drains twice as fast as normal. When checking battery information McAfee Security is all time high 30% usage or more, twice the amount of the second software "Pokémon GO" know for it's battery usage.

This has rendered my phone useless since it has gone from lasting 2 days to much less then 1 day. The device from time to time gets really hot and I have a concern for the battery health due to heat.

I'm considering uninstalling this software if no fixes are released.

Phone in use: Samsung Galaxy A8, Android Version: 9

I have attached 2 image:

1) Showing high battery usage and constant activity, no sleep

2) Strange CPU usage warning from Samsung Device Care, due to extrem CPU usage
