I would like to know how to temporarily disable the app on my phone. I've force closed it, I've turn every feature off, but it's still running. I've even turned off it's permissions but it's still running. My phone has been severely slow ever since it's been installed. Had to uninstall it because even if you toggle scanning off it still continues to scan my storage and toggles itself back on. Waste of my money.

I like everything about this app, except the fact that its pretty much exactly the same thing as bitdefender central, without several key features. For the love of god, please add the ability to auto connect to VPN when on an open internet connection. In addition, please add the ability to quick connect to vpn from the button menu in the notification pane on Samsung/General Devices. We pay the same amount as a normal bit defender subscription, we deserve such basic and crucial features.

This is a clone app of Bitdefender Mobile Security & Antivirus. Netgear has rebranded it under their NetGear Armor 1 year subscription. The mobile app itself is not secure and cannot be locked with a PIN to protect a criminal from going into the app and disabling all of it's features. Once you login once with your NetGear e-mail/password, it will stay logged in forever (even after rebooting your phone). Additionally, if you ever do log out of the app, when you log back in, all of your settings are erased and you have to reconfigure the entire app manually. Clearly nobody ever tested the app and it's disappointing to see no Quality Assurance was ever conducted. It shows how much they care about your security. I am very disappointed by the app and they try to force you to disable your Secure Boot (encryption) on your device in order for their Web Protection feature to function, which makes my device even more vulnerable. Also, 200MB/day VPN is not a good deal. Make it unlimited or don't offer it at all.
