Many apps have one or the other - good security paired to average customization options, or beautiful customization with only okay security. Here however, is a winning combination of gorgeous personalization options and excellent security options, along with notification customization!

Use the auto-wake screen and choose which apps are important enough to sacrifice sleep for. The anti-theft alarm can show real time locations, allow you to remotely lock your device, and even keeps an album for all photographed intruders. Looking to make your background more in your style? Browse the wallpapers, themes, and launchers, or add your own photos to show off your cute, haunted, romantic, musical, or hidden side of you!

▲ Customize your phone exactly how you want it with styles, protection, and other options.

▲ Go into musical preferences, or go app notifications. Just go beyond the pin or pattern question.

▲ Catch intruders 365 days a year and gather an album of their pictures. This locker takes no holidays!

Quick access from your lock screen (just slide up) presents you with four symbols. Tap the rocket ship to clean up hidden files. Pick the battery to show how much time you have left, depending on what activities you will do. Touching the pinwheel randomly changes your background, and the flashlight allows you to, well, shed some light on things.


With everything you need, style, security, and efficiently all rolled into one app with a sleek user-interface, this makes setting up your new phone (or protecting your current one), a snap. Take the time to lock up your phone with this pretty package!

Used to like it, but after updating everything kind of fell apart. Worst of all, they put ads on your lockscreen! Definitely not worth it. Deleted and just using my stock lockscreen for now.

As a smartphone user, you have a lot to worry about: viruses, malware, phishing emails and websites, bloated installs, power-hungry apps, and even the theft of your device. Ensure instant protection against threats, and at the same time, set up beneficial system enhancements with an all-in-one security suite. Real-time safeguards scan and block malicious apps, emails, websites, and even users. The app also improves device performance by cleaning junk files and optimizing battery usage.

To start, simply tap the big “scan” sphere to search for viruses and performance issues. The app lists threats to your phone, explains them to you thoroughly, and gives you options for how to handle them. Scroll through the suggested changes and tap those you wish to apply. Let the app walk you through the rest, until you are safely browsing once again!

▲ No need to be a tech wiz: color-coding from red to blue lets you know how vulnerable you are.<br>

▲ System running slowly? Optimize its performance by cleaning out junk files.

▲ Choose from basic to full protection, based on how integrated you want the security suite to be.

Device security requires pro-activity on your part as well: the best way to avoid threats to your phone, or frustrating elements bogging you down, is to browse smartly. This security app features built-in safe browsing, so that you can visit websites in incognito mode, which means no server cookies tracking your visit or unwanted cache files clogging up your system!

It can easily be overwhelming when it comes to keeping up with technological dangers and poor system optimization. Having a comprehensive defense tool on your device is a great way to stay both safe and informed!
