Review WebGuard

Jay Feldman
7.4Good
Various features, simple interface
Weak functionality, old fashioned design, unjustified price
Personally, I think the single most important quality any antivirus or web protection software can possess, is the ability to instill confidence in its users. And measuring by that yardstick, WebGuard for Android has little to offer. I have to believe that the developers are on it, so far as continually responding to new threats, offering frequent updates and a user interface that gives me confidence that someone competent is behind the helm. And I simply don't get any of those warm and fuzzy feelings from this one.
The primary downfall for me with this app, is the very dry and old school interface. Sure, this app can possess all the protection and computing power as any other web protection service, but it sure doesn't look that way. I want internet security software to look like someone is slaving over keeping it current, modern and powerful, 24/7, not just in their spare time. Having said that, the strengths of this app is its ability to anonymize your browsing location, which is apparently the only real protection this app has to offer. However, the word "protection" is a misnomer here, because there's a lot more that goes into protecting your device than just masking your IP and location.
WebGuard has the audacity to want to charge you $0.99 monthly, $6 annually or $18 for a lifetime subscription. Given what little it has to offer, I'm hard pressed to see the value of that expense.
