    "This is a very helpful app if you lose your iphone. It offers a sound that makes a noise so that you can follow that to find it. It shows where your phone is on a map. It allows family sharing and supports the IOS8. This is for people like me who are constantly misplacing their phone. Great app to have"

    "I always wonder whether or not are phones can be really secure. I mean even when we try to lock down our phones by not installing apps that want to much permission to access certain things. It makes you wonder. For me I would love to have my calls being encrypted. Kryptos is that app for you. It uses military grade tech to help encoded your phone calls so others can not hear them. Get this app if you want to have your call encrypted."

    "So I recently learned that using regular passwords was unsafe. This app makes it really easy to use super difficult, impossible to break passwords while I don't have to remember them! And it's really secure, using all sorts of encryption i don't understand."

    "The app does what it describes, but it doesn't work as well as it claims. Sometimes live video lags, which is disappointing since live viewing is the main draw for me. Also, why should customers have to pay for the app? Isn't it enough that we already pay for the product and service? "

    "Wickr is pretty dope. It's like snapchat for actually messaging, an adultchat, something similar where all your data and stuff is meant to be kept secured. Perfect for professionals, and those doing not so public things."

    "I had a Vivint alarm system that drove me nuts for 5 months. Had to call them 14 times for service and out of 14 they only came out 6 of them. The other 8 had a 4 hour window that I sat at home, lost money because I wasn’t at work, And They Never Showed Up!!!! And They Never Called. They were Terrible. I found The Alarm Guys and had them come out. What a difference a hard working service company makes. They were here in the morning and finished the job in one day. The techs had a issue with my door bell cam and next thing I knew the owner and his brother were at my house and resolved the issue. Where else do you get that kind of loyalty and commitment. I can answer that, No where!!, never!!. They run their company hands on. So I very highly recommend The Alarm Guys to anyone wanting a very good alarm and camera system. They are the best."
