What does Max, your guardian do?
• Protect your personal information and online privacy.
• Keep you safe while using public WiFi.
• Stop advertisers from tracking you.
• Help secure traffic from all browsers and apps.

Keep Max on guard 24/7 for complete peace of mind while browsing the internet. No in-app purchases, no ads!

How does Phone Guardian work?
Phone Guardian uses the latest technology to scan your internet traffic for security leaks. Internet traffic that is at risk will be encrypted to add an extra layer of protection.

Phone Guardian determines which apps and WiFi networks need extra protection, so it can always make the best trade-off between speed and security. This makes Phone Guardian at least 2x faster than traditional security apps that use VPN!

Great free app that gives you peace of mind


On average this app will block at least, (and I strongly emphasize the at least) 10,000 intrusion attempts in a week. This week is a little higher because I’ve been outta the house more than usual, so right now I’m right around 19,700 blocked attempts.

My only gripe with the app is this, (and it’s not even that major of a gripe), when restarting the iPhone X the app won’t reconnect/reactivate the VPN and get back on your local WiFi. So if you aren’t paying attention at home/work, or wherever you usually rely on a WiFi signal, you will chew through your data. You have to go into settings, scroll down to the VPN slider/button, tap it, it attempts to turn off and then turns right back on and connects to the WiFi immediately. It’s my home network, I’ve told it to trust it many, many, many times to see if it takes care of it...but, it does not. That’s really it. Haven’t had any other issues, no issues with the app interfering as far as blocking websites, app’s accessing the net, etc. Great app all around. And like I said, it gives you a little peace of mind while out n about searching the web for anything.

Some issues


Overall I like the app especially for free but it does have a few annoying issues. Mostly when I'm online trying to look things up. It won't allow pages to open even from previously visited sites and ones that are associated with my accounts so they are protected anyway. Sometimes it works fine other times it won't work at all until I shut the app off. I've also had a slowness issue. My wifi has been noticeably slower since adding this app and my battery drains extremely rapidly. Now since I'm typically in an area easily accessible to charging it hasn't caused me too much of a problem. The lagging is however annoying and I do find myself turning the app off a lot, at home especially.

Overall from what I can tell the app is serving it's purpose and when I'm not using my phone or only using it for texting and calling, it is still a good piece of mind to have.

Developer Response

Hmmmm..fine print


So, nothing against this app or its developer/owner, but I am seeking a security app to ensure my information isn't collected and shared with 3rd parties. Like many, I don't want the websites I visit, apps I use or the location I am at, readily available to anyone other than myself. If you read the fine print, you will learn that while they are upfront about it, The company Distimo, who makes this app, owns any information you give them, including the primary 3 listed in a previous sentence of this review. More than likely not a big thing, but they're offering an app at no cost, with no ads. There had to be a catch. So if you're truly looking to be " under the radar", read the fine print and then make the call....
As for me, I have deleted the app and don't plan to use it. But I gave them a 3, because the reviews are all Favorable and I didn't want to bring them down too much for something I am bothered by. Form your own beliefs.
