Ratings and Reviews
For a free app, it works pretty well
The first thing I wanted to review about this app was the privacy of the data they’re collecting from you. I’ve seen some other reviews freaking out about how in the “fine print” it says that the app owns all information it collects from you, and this is true, but it’s also true for pretty much every app. The thing I like about this one is that they’re very upfront about this. In the FAQ section, they even address that they are only able to keep the app free by sending your “search trends” to other companies, but again, this is likely happening to you anyway. Most applications and corporations do this. To some people, this might be a complete turn off, but I personally don’t have a problem with it. Secondly, the numbers the app gives you for “threats stopped” is very reassuring. I genuinely think the app is keeping me at least somewhat protected, and the overall design is easy to understand and aesthetically pleasing. Obviously, someone took put a lot of time and effort into making it function smoothly. Though it is true I haven’t had the app for very long, it’s been an pleasant experience thus far.
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.
With all the mobile security issues out there, I decided to install Phone Guardian and was very pleased with its performance until I tried to access my TD Bank mobile app. It appeared that the app wasn’t working, returning an error message stating “we’re working on their problem”. Having experienced a glitch or 2 with TD before, I wasn’t terribly concerned, figuring the problem would be rectified shortly.
After about a week with the same issue, I thought to turn off the VPN in settings … TD still didn’t work. I called my local branch and the TD main CS number, but no issue had been reported. At that point, I decided to delete the VPN app, and when I did, the TD app started working again!
I don’t know if there’s a conflict with any other VPN app, but I can state that Phone Guardian won’t work with TD Mobile. I’ve sent a secure message to TDCS… let’s see if there’s a fix! Now I’m reporting the issue to you. I was really liking this app until I found this conflict. Any ideas developers? My dog is named Max too! Fix it and I’ll give you 5 stars!
