2.0 out of 5 stars Free Version is limited... September 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
Tried this product. Seems to run lightly in the system with no integration problems or system lock ups, etc.. It offers static scans but NO active dynamic protection unless you set up a paid account. So this is the bait to get yo into a paid version. Many apps do this and you are welcome take the bait,... but I opted not to for a couple reasons. All the other free features are not interesting to me except one: the feature that closes all unnecessary apps that may be running. That is a nice feature, so that's the only small feature of this app I use & for that reason will keep this app. For real time dynamic protection against viruses, etc. after many trials I finally landed on Verizon Mobile Security free app that came with my Android Maxx. They also have a premium version that co$t$ but the free version is more robust than Antivirus & Mobile Security's TrustGo Mobile, or Lookout Security & Anti Virus, or the paid version of Spyware Shield. Just sayin, my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best app i ever downloaded May 19, 2013
By Mr A
Verified Purchase
At first i was looking for others antivirus programs but then i saw this product. It got high rated that impressed me a lot, so curiously tried this app. The first day, i wasn't sure if i need it until i download the "Feed the Dino" game and Trust-go antivirus reports it got risks that could harm my tablet, i didn't believe it ad ignore the warning. A while, the kindle kept reports unexpected downloads and commercial every minute, then i delete the Risk-reported app and everything went fine. I tried some more products but this Antivirus is the only one that didn't make my Kindle laggy. I recommend you use this app to secure your kindle and enjoy risk-free device. Remember to turn on the web secure option to make downloads safer.

By Don

However you are connecting to the internet and regardless of the device, let's face it: you need protection. This app provides the peace of mind needed to navigate the sometimes prickly world of sports apps, online games, and even news sites. A real must-have for everyone online on the go.

Great app for keeping your device working efficiently and protecting it. I love the system manager that monitors your storage and you click once and it turns off all apps you arent using so your device runs better. Very good app.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unable to update this app on Kindle Fire Hd February 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
I'm using TrustGo on my Kindle Fire HD, I downloaded it from the Amazon app store on my device. I very much like this application and did a fair amount of research, reading reviews, etc. before selecting it. Something that I didn't discover until this morning is an apparent inability to update to the latest version on this device. I have v1.1.6. Today when I started TrustGo I was prompted to update to v1.3.13 but following the link took me to the Google Play Store, which notified me that I couldn't get there from my Kindle. I then tried to uninstall the app and download it again but the version was the same. What can I do to stay current on my Kindle?
I have sent two emails to the customer support link that was offered by TrustGo and have yet to hear back from them. I know that it's free but what good is a security app if it can't be updated?

How to Update
It has been like that for years. And now the Trustgo people refuse to provide a new apk to kindle users, even though we can't update the ancient database. I can't even back up or restore contacts, since Trustgo insists I don't have an internet connection. I think the Amazon version is 3 years... Read More
