    "This would be a very helpful app due to the amount of time that is spent on the phone this day and time. Hackers and trolls are finding new and improved ways to attack your devices and this would be a great defense against that."

    "This app comes in great handy when you can't seem to find your phone due to misplacing it. I've also been in a situation where my phone was lost and I was able to lock my phone so other people couldn't access my data and private information."

    "I wish I would have had this app BEFORE a phone I had got stolen. I have installed it on my new phone after that happened because this will document everything that is going on with it. It gathers a ton of useful info to give to the police so they can help track your phone. I've found it gives a lot more information than the default "Find my iPhone" app included with IOS. If you've never had a phone taken, or even if you already have, download this app. You won't regret it!"

    "This is a good basic security app for my android phone. I use it primarily to scan browsers for me when I visit websites on my mobile phone and also to scan apps that I download from the play store. It also alerts you if someone tries to steal your identity or if a Wi-Fi connection you are trying to get into isn't secure. One feature that I also liked about the app is that it provides you with privacy tips so that you can be on the look out for possible privacy breaches in your day to day. I would recommend having at least one security app on your phone because all your private information flows through your smartphone these days."
