Reviews From google play store

I must revise my last review sense now I am seeing the improvement in how your upgrades have been maintaining the security of my phone. I just recently purchased a new Chrome book , can your software work just as effectively on this as it does on my phone?


I'm glad they let me know daily about security alerts


have it on your phone is to protect you from anybody can steal your memory on your phone 🐞🐞🐞.


Major battery killer


EATS BATTERY!!!!!!!!!


good security!


great job 👍


I guess it's a pretty good app, LOL it seems to think it's doing something to protect my phone. I don't have access to the information it has collected by scanning and this should be an option for customers to easily see the things like "web attacks" it keeps telling me that it has stopped. Plus a auto fit for a users font and screen size would be a nice update. I can't tap on the bottom button to close the app.


CONSTANT NOTIFICATIONS ABOUT BATTERY USAGE BUT NO USAGE. BUT SEEING MOST OF HE ISSUES ARE THE SAME AS MINE JUST OROVES YOU DINT CARE ABOUT THE CONSUMER. THAT CLEAR ENOUGH? Once again, continued fictitious alerts all day every day and nothing done about it on your end. Usless


Just like everyone else it keeps annoying you for no reason and tech support doesn't even know what it is or what it does. They even told me to contact Google because they (Verizon) doesn't control the update. Verizon tech and FRAUD departments have no clue what their own apps do. I literally waited on hold a solid hour to speak to someone about this app and what it's doing. The tech at the Fraud department was rushed and never even heard of this app, blaming Google Play.


Not only does this app report it is using battery, there is a one click option to extend this app to other devices for 6.99 a month. Don't accidentally click that... One click and it adds to your bill. I didn't know till I had to call to dispute that charge it was even a Verizon app. Disabling it and force quitting it seems to have stopped it working.


Verizon, please stop adding apps to my phone that i don't ask for. at the very least don't make them system level apps that i can't delete. I just spent 20 minutes disabling this one because it became intrusive with constant notifications. if i could at least delete it I could reclaim the storage space it's holding on to


What insanety!!! Same negative reviews & Same old Vz song and dance! It's been a nightmare 😫 I've been uninstalling apps thinking they were the culprits of my Droids Evil problems. Not thinking that it would be Vz who installed it in the first place. What Vz, trying to mess with our phones to gain more sales or longer contracts. It's uncanny that this app was installed 4-6 weeks ago, that's the time when I paid off the balance of phone, & my Vz contract is done. Gone, Gone, Gone!!!


This app is phone cancer. Its constantly running in the background consuming your battery. Anything that requires CPU cycles will cause it to reduce battery life. To what scale is questionable. The latest update of the app is causing it to run in the background continuously which prompts the message for consuming battery. Uninstall the latest update and you will notice the notification goes away, yet the rep is blaming the Google? F you to anyone who puts bloatware in a product.


I have the same complaint. I know there is going to be an up date but when. It is driving me crazy. I don't understand why Verizon puts these apps on here and we can't remove them so they take up memory. So Verizon tell me why you put apps like this and the sports one Amazon audio. If I wanted these apps then I would have put them on myself.


After few years of usage this app, today the app determined that my home wi-fi is an unsecure network after it daily updates. The app could neither provide reasons for the conclusion, nor guide me to corrective steps for resolution, nor enable me to confirm security of my home network. One thing for sure, the app is suggesting me to purchase monthly subscription fee, which of course I denied.


Constantly getting this app is a battery hog, also when visiting 2 of my family homes app says their network has been "compromised" but fails to give any specifics - questionable if that's the case. May be doing some security, but I'm sure there are much better apps for security.


Verizon recently added this permanent annoying, intrusive, disrespectful PUSH NOTIFICATION, "Security and Privacy Safely 24/7 Threat Protection Is On". And they've made it so that if you disable their notifications, it disables the functionality like detecting installation of malicious apps. I choose to disable Verizon's security app and use a different one and Verizon is too big to care!


Constantly pops up, and it has caused me a loss of time on numerous occasions. It doesn't care if you're in the middle of typing something on your phone, it will take over and tell you about the wifi network you've been using for years.


I never use this app. It only exists to give me notifications saying that my phone was still in fact not full of viruses. Ever since the update it has been saying that it's consuming battery, and I can find no way to turn it off. It is wasting my battery and not giving me anything in return, why would they auto install this app onto my phone
