    "DuckDuckGo is great, free, and convenient. Sometimes I don't find everything on DuckDuckGo that I find on Google, but I find most things and I like that it's even more private than using Google signed out and in private mode."

    "Onion Browser - Secure & Anonymous Web with Tor is something you need if you want full privacy on the internet. Nothing comes close to the privacy you get with the Onion browser. Downside is that it's a little tricky to get used too, but it's definitely the best app to prevent eavesdropping."

    "I wanted to protect myself from government monitoring. This program allowed me to do just that. I feel safe and secure now that I use it. Speed is not an issue either, like it is with some other virtual peer networks. "

    "While this app is designed to meet my need for a private, encrypted conversation or video call, the app doesn't execute this very well. It is buggy, a bit pricey at 10 bux a month and does not appear to be very experienced in the field as of yet. I could find a much better solution, especially for the price. I will look elsewhere. "

    "Orbot is great for protecting user privacy and allowing anonymous and secure browsing. It helps prevent unwanted access or eavesdropping by others. The interface is nice and easy to use. Sometimes it runs a little slow, but that might just be my device. Overall, works as it should and enhances user privacy."
