No way!!! Good information. I will keep an closer eye on FB. I wonder if it has to do with their tie in to the phone’s GPS service to capture the I AM HERE location posts? I also wonder if FB turns on the GPS link every time their app downloads a software update!

I've been having the same issue. I've noticed it happens every time I download a new app. I end up deleting the new app(s) then turning the phone off and charging while off. Once it goes away it doesn't come back until a new app is downloaded... never the same app twice.

Hi,

I have a Droid Maxx and the mdnsd was also draining my battery at 34%. i read everything and did not believe that the Facebook app was the culprit...it was...I uninstalled it, charged the phone at night and the next morning it was gone. I get on facebook thru google search and actually it is almost as easy as the app.

I hope it stays gone!!!

I have a note 4. I have this same problem. I have uninstalled firefox. I have installed the package disabler for Samsung because you cannot uninstall facebook on this phone, which is [Removed] ! I have tried all kinds of service disablers. Nothing works!

The problem is:

The  MDNSD service is the number one on the battery page. It is sometimes as high as 46%. It runs the battery down very quickly. Sometimes it runs it down and heats up the battery so badly, even with it hooked to a quick charger, it runs the battery down while using it.

This problem only started six months ago. What is the deal? It doesn't always do this. I can go 5 or 6 days without a problem. Then it shows up on the battery page, and my battery goes down fast. I have googled the heck out of this and can only find that facebook and firefox are the problem. That is not it. I am getting really mad because it is not my fault. This phone has been great for 2 years. I refuse to buy another phone just to fix this! I will go to a flipphone if I have to. They always do this. They find some way to make you have to buy a new phone. [Removed]!

Please help!

I thought I would follow up with what I did. I couldn't uninstall facebook as it is a built in app. I could however uninstall facebook updates. I did that and it solved the problem! No more mdnsd in the battery page. I am using an old version of the facebook app but it does the job fine for me. My battery has over 50% at the end of the day. Happy camper here.
