What is 360 Security?
For this 360 Security App Review, we are going to be checking out this Android app on Google Play:

Is 360 Security Safe?
With 16,465,267 people rating it 4.6 in Google Play store… these many people can’t be wrong, the app is rocking it and part of it’s job is actually to keep you safe from viruses. So while this 360 Security App Review is just my opinion, there are very few bad scores on this chart.
360 Security App Review: What I Like
Well, I’m a bit of an app junkie, so my phone gets cluttered, like a lot. This app helps me clean things up on an ongoing basis.
One other thing I like is the easy-access bar it adds to my phone for “Torch” which allows me to use my phone as a LED flashlight without another app. I also couldn’t figure out a way to do this on my own using the prepacked setup on my unlocked Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4.

360 Security Android: How to stop the Madness
Not sure when they added this functionality, but here is how to get rid of it. This super-annoying notification is hiding way down in the 360 Security App Settings menu (bottom):
Next step is to move the Full charge notification alarm setting Off (to the Left) to stop the daily semi-random annoyance:
At least they were nice enough to silence the thing for certain time periods, I just want it off ALL the time!
Even with the quirks, I would say check it out. It’s still on my phone and I have to delete other apps constantly!
