I wanted a virus protection for my kindle fire HD I tried lots before I came across this one, I red the reviews and downloaded it and was happy with it instantly, which I wasn't with the ones I'd previously tried, I'd recommend it because so far I haven't found anything I don't like about it and with it being free to download and so far not having to upgrade and pay for anything like some I've tried that also makes it a good rating of me.

Having used Webroot to secure my PCs for the past 2 years, I decided to give the mobile version a go for my Kindle Fire HD. The product is proving to be most satisfactory and reliable even though this is the free version.

This app has three parts to it: An antivirus, secure web browsing and identity & privacy. It is always worth having an antivirus program and I would say that this has an important feature which is to stop dialing damaging numbers, unfortunately this has no use on the Fire unless perhaps you dial out using SKYPE but the other features of system shield and scanning any app you download and install is probably a good thing. The secure web browsing will block malicious websites and ask you if you want to continue so it at least alerts you to a problem. The bit I was disappointed about was was the privacy and identity because the lock, locate and wipe function if your Fire was stolen for instance works by activation through an SMS message. Obviously the Fire is not a phone so the key feature is rendered useless - what a shame. However, at no cost you get most of the app.

I like this app. so far. I have not had any problems. So I guess that is a great thing. I did have a problem uploading onto my Kindle Fire HD, but I chatted with a representative who helped me with my problem. I gave it 4 stars because I have not had it long enough to say "I love it." I am a satisfied customer so far.

If you own a Kindle Fire your choice of apps is limited to those sold by Amazon. AVG, Norton etc are not an option.
This is the best of what is available. It is a capable security package but is not inspiring.
I have used it for about 12 months and it has done its job and kept me free from any mallware.
