    "This app is alright. I'm not a huge fan of it just because of the fact that it takes up space on my phone where I could have apps I actually enjoy using, but it's still a decent app to have."

    "This truthfully isn't the best security app on the market. It's good though for what it is. It's UI is simple, it's easy to understand, and use. So all in all, it's not a bad suggestion..just there are better."

    "Kaspersky Antivirus and Security seems to be effective at what it does. Of course I have no way of knowing if it blocked any hacking attempts but the app seems to be lock-tight as far as security goes. Also it's in another language so that made understanding the app a little difficult since I had to translate it to English."

    "Our phones have become a central nexus of our lives, yet many people don't use even basic security for their phones - even though everyone knows computers need antivirus software. I did the same thing, and so I tried 360 Security. Unfortunately, 360 Security is just not good. Its junk cleaner and speed booster are worse than useless. The antivirus is just a basic app tester - don't install strange and unfamiliar apps and you'll be just fine without it. Everything else is just kind of useless."
