Ratings and Reviews
I think this app is a super smart idea. I've been using it for a while, but it's more important than ever with all of the harassment in Trump's America. I know the last version was a little buggy - that's all fixed now. Just get the latest version.
Thanks for fixing the glitches!
Circle of 6 is my favorite security app and it's great to see it running smoothly. Thanks for all your work!
