    "This is a really comprehensive security app, which probably explains why it's used by so many users. It basically turns your phone into a super secure device! It even takes a photo of intruders who try to use your phone. The only issue I noticed, that others did too, was it slows down the phone. Maybe they will optimize it in software upgrades."

    "I want to say that I started using this about a month ago, and I can confirm that it has blocked almost every add in most apps. However, I can't recommend using this company's products because of negative experiences I've had on other platforms, particularly on PC. It works great on mobile, but the PC version leaves much to be desired."
