Runs smoothly. Scans well. No ads, no hassles. Very reliable. Nice job!! 7/2022 Just upgraded, love it! Felt there were some privacy issues. Feel much more secure now. Easy to use, no ads! Awesome app!! 🤜🤛 8/2022 I was having some major tech & security issues with my phone, so I reached out to tech support. Alex took care of things from behind the scenes from an email I had left, and then wrote back to me in case I needed any further assistance. Thank you so much, Alex! Great job!! 👍

I am a paid user for Prime subscription. I really like their softwares for Windows. It has improved dramatically over a year, and the best I have ever seen on the Market. However, the apps for the Android on the other hand has bugs. For instance, even tho I have enable permission on certain features in the setting, the app still shows that I haven't enable it yet. For one other feature, it won't let me enable this particular permission the setting. It also blocks me using my camera. Disappointed

Never noticed whether it actually stopped or blocked anything malicious on my phone. But, the app consumes 82% of my battery life, and severely degrades my cell phone's performance! Plus, the battery monitor with ad notification window keeps popping up repeatedly, making it nearly impossible to use my device. Can't figure out how to uninstall it either. They need to fix this app!

We're sorry you're facing this issue. To the battery: Please make sure that you are using the latest version. A reinstallation could also help solving the problem. To the ads: Running a free app version does not give you all the benefits of the product. We invite you to try the premium version of the app, which comes with an add-free experience.
