Kaspersky end protection seems to work pretty well. The VPN however is very disappointing! Doesn't work most of the time when I need it. I brought it up to support and they recommend turning on airplane mode then turning it back off. Tried this, didn't work. Then they sent me some software to diagnose the problem but that software wouldn't even open!

The app is an extremely reliable anti-virus, anti-malware, and VPN all in one which is great. The one thing to watch out for is battery consumption. My phone used to last 2 and a half days from full charge, now it can't even go 1 day. So if you have an app in background or foreground that eats up a lot of charge then this will be the last straw. Edit: as someone pointed out, the VPN keeps trying to turn on by itself and hence decreases battery life. Very good app though.

If the VPN tries to turn on but doesn't connect, it will continuously try in the background, draining battery. If you cancel the connection from the notification, the app disables the VPN switch and gives it a red background , so you can't turn it on/off. Connecting/disconnecting from wifi doesn't enable the switch, you have to restart the device. | Can't turn on VPN without manually opening the app. Needs a Quick Settings tile
