It keeps disconnecting itself from accessibility (and sometimes still says accessibility is turned on) and when it does disconnect, the app lock feature stops working. When it is working, it makes me punch in my pin, but it also switches to biometry! Sometimes it switches to biometry when I'm in the middle of typing my pin! My phone as well as the app are up-to-date so it's a problem with Kaspersky. I have never had this issue until the latest update.

Been using Kaspersky Security for several years now, on all my devices. Get real-time notification and reports. If I forget/misplace a device, I can simple go into the app an select locate device which gives location an options to lock device or make a sound to help locate. Sound alarm feature is helpful when device has fallen between the seat an console in the SUV. Keeps me safe & secure when browsing internet. The VPN is great. It's auto feature keeps me secure when on public networks.

Lightweight and fast, with no annoyances (constant bugging you to install other apps, etc.) that competing products had. It didn't even bug me to buy a subscription when I used the free tier or the premium trial. Only issue is: the call filter is a simple blacklist. I think they're trialing a more sophisticated system in Russia, I hope they bring it to the rest of the world. Also an option to import a list of numbers to block for the simple system would be appreciated.

What's new

We’ve expanded our stalkerware alert to further protect your safety. If our technology finds one of your apps is secretly sharing your location and messages with a third party, we’ll advise you how to proceed – considering the situation in full. We also want you to know that if stalkerware is removed the person who installed the app will be alerted, since this may lead to an escalation of the situation.
