When trying to open it was just spinning and not letting me do anything. I fixed it before the developers got back to me by uninstalling and then installing it back. So far it hasn't been an issue since. I do feel the scan should be more obvious and so between the technical issues I faced and that...I took off one star still. I may update later if the scan button becomes easier to access (maybe bigger).

I don't think I will renew... It continuously turns off, I have to go in and do everything manually daily. What's the purpose of having this if I have to keep going in and restarting the program. It doesn't serve the purpose of "protection/monitoring" if it turns off the VPN, the protection and monitoring etc.on my PC and phone.. frustrating and risky. Something has to change and be upgraded ASAP.

Haven't been too happy, not necessarily for the protection aspect. Mainly because the browser overrode my default browser for months. (Finally fixed) and the notifications are so darn annoying. My phones chime at midnight every night to say they scanned an app. I turned off notifications and it still chimes all the time in the middle of the night for every app it scans. So annoying!! One notification is plenty.
