It's good for what you're paying for. It lets you know what accounts or passwords are breached, and it searches for insecurities in your wifi or device. However, I do dislike how the VPN turns on periodically on its own despite the fact that I chose the setting to manually turn it on when I need to; in addition, the VPN doesn't work and my browsers and apps such as YouTube start buffering. After deactivating the VPN, apps become normal. This was never an issue before(customer since 4-2-23).

This app makes me have 1 notification all the time. It won't go away. It says: "24/7 threat protection is on". This is good to know, but I don't need this notification on all the time. I know I can go into settings and turn off all notifications for this app. But I don't want ALL notifications turned off .... just this one. And my VPN will not stay on. It never has. Restarting my phone doesn't work either. Please help. UPDATE: These issues have been resolved. Thanks!

Great app to have. My 1 issue with them is the VPN service. It keeps turning off even when you're using the same wifi and didnt leave the network, you get kicked off. UPDATE: Tech team doesnt respond to issues. So I just deleted the app as I had missed too many emergency messages from work and just notifications in general. I never got a service number.
