After the recent update August of 2022, it will no longer connect to the internet and update. The app is effectively useless if you cannot update virus definitions. Ok! I deleted the app and reinstalled it. It now works great, the problem is gone. There was some problem that arose when I updated the app to new version. My wife's did not even have the issue and her phone is just about the same device. Our family pays for their premium service and I think its worth it.

App may have a good name but it is very intrusive. It constantly has messages pop up about this or that that's needs to be cleaned, or scaned or needs attention of some sort. I even tried to limit notifications but that didn't work. Also, it claimed to empty cashes of apps. Checked after it 'cleaned' the cashes and found several hundred MB of data that was still there. Not happy with this app. Deleting.

When I initially installed this app it worked very well. For the last month the app has been trying to install an update, unsuccessfully. I have tried reaching out to customer service but have only received canned, and inaccurate instructions for my phone platform that does not work. I am unable to update the app. Now my phone does not function correctly. I do not recommend this app because of the substandard customer service.
