Simple to use and great options. I don't know if this is really protecting my G2 from ask the risks, but gives me the peace of mind!!

This is great, does what it says. Tried a fake virus, after installation it detected it immediately. The lightest I've seen compared to lookout, antivirus and netqin

Have Webroot mobile security basic installed on my gingerbread android. If I have a phone number in my blacklist and that number phones my android rather than block the call webroot crashes. Any ideas.... other than this I am impressed with the app. By the way the webroot app ran fine on the Froya os.

So far this is great! Everything works just fine. Nice UI too, very easy to use and set up, thanks to all the webroot dev team.

The issue that downgraded me back to the free basic version has been fixed. Customer support is terrific. Excellent app!

Great protection - nice interface, quick scans and lock-down/locate features are nice...but it thinks Superuser is a threat if you're rooted.

I have used this app since day one on my phone. Through rooting, custom ROMs, tons of downloads. Amazing protection, easy to use ... I would absolutely pay for this app. Droid X.

Subscription lasts a year, but I heard it will just keep being a free product with limited features. Works great on my Samsung Captivate. Keep it up W :)

Unobtrusive, feature rich; but beware app updates as you're liable to lose your subscription; contact support to fix (happened twice now)
