Would love to give them 5 stars but the malware scanner simply does not function when running in the background or with the screen off. It's a shame because it's arguably one of the best malware scanners out there. It just stops or slows down to a snail pace if you turn off the screen or navigate to a different app or page. It seems like basic functionality they should have fixed.

I loved this app, it was especially useful for blocking unwanted calls, and the locate and recovery features added some nice peace of mind. unfortunately Google has forced them to reduce the app to little more than a well built antivirus. It's a great security app, it does its job quietly and efficiently. Providing a release with all the previous features outside of the play store would be awesome, but it doesn't seem likely.

Thank you for your rating and understanding. We are also very sorry that we were forced to remove those features. Thank you also for your proposal to provide an app variant with Loss&Theft and Call Blocking outside of the play store, which we will discuss.

It is really good, very smart concept, effective and easy to use. Loaded with features and ad-free! I have a few suggestions though. These are quality of life suggestions, so this is still a 5-star app. First, the app locking has a smart concept but isn't compatible with some apps. For example, apps that have a loading screen then pop up the actual app the app locker will prompt you at the loading screen, but then refresh when the app loads and prompt you twice and it looks sloppy. Second, have low-reputation apps scanning as a separate service to the scanner. That way adding the exceptions for using the low reputation apps (because they are apps I know and trust) doesn't leave any vulnerabilities on my device. Just my thoughts, keep up the good work! Oh, and the help page has no spaces between words, but it works lol
