  • (2023-03-27) Sparrow: garbage, way too expesnive "free" trial just takes all of the money off of your credit card. DONT DOWNLOAD IT it removes every single antivirus before you can do anything.
  • (2023-03-26) Prof Tech: what if this is another scam, to scam us by pretending to stop other scammers
  • (2023-03-25) arthur mason: this is grate.
  • (2023-03-25) Radu Ciocarlan: I've installed the extension for 30min-1hour now and already got tired of the constant free trial and the limited timed offer notifications spam.
  • (2023-03-25) joseph manuel: It picks up a lot of junk love it. It`s very save to use thank u
  • (2023-03-24) Bahram: Give full control of your browser and your credit card to an unknown Israeli IT company, great idea, what could go wrong? Add "Guardio Protection for Chrome"? It can: Read and change all your data on all websites Display notifications Manage your apps, extensions, and themes
  • (2023-03-24) Tristan Krauskopf: everytime you run a scan it just begs you to get a free trial for premium
  • (2023-03-23) Sharon Nowlin: very pleased they have found problens that others have missed
  • (2023-03-22) Varniit Professional: I know that Guardio is focused on protection and safeguarding users from harmful sites but the 4 and 5 reviews and paid sponsorship in youtube videos doesn't exactly sit well with I installed it. There is no mention that only installing this addon is free, rest is paid and the gimmick of 7 days trial is just not possible without giving your credit card or paypal details. At first, I thought it would be install it and use it but it showed me constant blank popups and unless and until I didn't went into addon settings, I was able to see how it works. In short, you need to allow the permissions of Guardio addon to read your browsing history, checks sites you visit and some java changes control, create an account and then allow 7 days thing with credit card then you can use it otherwise it is useless. The info it gets and shows is just facebook but not from Mark. Plus the company is from Israel which is not considered good for privacy. Anyways, it is 2 days and I haven't seen anything spectacular happening with Guardio. I will wait for your dev response and ask why there is no shadow behind the functionality of addon if it is said free and simple. I don't see simple things getting complicated.
  • (2023-03-21) TK Hardy: yes i love it a lot
  • (2023-03-18) Christina: i have Guardio on my google chrome laptop & ive only had the free version and it already has warned me every-time if i am trying to go to a website that they dont reccommend & they even give their reasons & facts on why that website isnt safe. I will definitely be buying the premium version! 5 STARS forsure! I do hope you can come out with an Apple&IOS version in Guardio!! Ps. i love the crews that recommended you in their scammer payback videos on youtube!Awesome job! (thats how i found Guardio!)
  • (2023-03-17) Peter Gushue: Guardio is unobtrusive, reasonably priced and there when I need it.
  • (2023-03-17) Velda Collins: I get reports not as often as I had expected but perhaps I don't know how to access that
  • (2023-03-17) Wojciech Nagrodzki: Does not work. Error: Forbidden Your client does not have permission to get URL / from this server.
  • (2023-03-17) unknown username: Besides needing a credit card for the "free trial" and similar complaints I've read in the reviews, I was curious about Guardio (yeah, maybe I'm following so many Youtubers promoting the thing). Besides bogus "harmful sites" (that I haven't visited and most of them with very similar dates), "leaks" in places I don't even remember clicking once in my life, as soon as I uninstalled the extension, the very next day I started receiving a truckload of spam mail. I went from receiving 2 or 3 junk emails per month to receiving at least 10 per day: surveys, insurance companies, you name it. NEVER, in 20+ years of surfing the web I've ever received so much junk mail in one of my accounts. I didn't subscribe to anything new; I didn't do anything else online besides downloading the Guardio extension. I'm not implying anything, just stating that my results in Guardio were not what I expected and that after uninstalling the thing I started receiving a lot of spam mail. The more I unsubscribe from those craps, the more I receive. Great way to waste time every day!
  • (2023-03-16) Red_impostorYT: Video that was sponsored by it said it was free, it is not free. Would rate -5,620/10
  • (2023-03-15) Donna Greenland: LOVE Guardio Has kept my computer safe since I was hacked.
  • (2023-03-14) joe smith: alerts me about bummer sites super, tks
  • (2023-03-11) Mark B: To start off, this Guardio extension is only available on Chrome and Chromium-based browsers (e.g., Edge, Brave, Opera) and at least one WebKit-based browser (Orion) that allows for Chrome extensions. So no option for Safari or Firefox. Also, there doesn’t appear to be any mobile version of Guardio. As for the effectiveness of this extension, I found it to be far superior to Web-of-Trust in catching newer phishing sites. It even caught a few sites that Chrome’s built-in security feature didn’t readily catch. As such, I give it a four-star thumbs up but not five due to the lack of availability on Firefox or Safari and the high subscription price There is a discount for an annual subscription which made it a bit easier to swallow.

  • (2023-02-23) Hussien1975: needs a credit card for free trail, 0/10

  • (2023-02-15) Pascal Pimpare: Works great and keeps itself out of my way! Appreciate it!
  • (2023-02-14) Aria_ Gaming: It's okay but a there should be a site protection setting part. You should be able to adjust 3 things. Let the site read and design info from other sites of malicious info should be a security setting. Report site and import info. Ratings from other extensions like W.O.T. This extension is really good though.
  • (2023-02-12) Robert Demler: Guardio is a great anxiety reliever!
  • (2023-02-11) Joel Birchenough: I found out about this application thru doing some normal antivirus research and such so I thought I try it out but when I went to sign up and create an account it gives me an error something went wrong please try again later and it wont let me create an account. I've tried multiple times and still the same error, I uninstalled and it recommended I try the free version but it still asks me to create an account and it still wont let me, I even tried signing up with my Google Account and the webpage just sits at "Processing" for the last 15-20min
  • (2023-02-11) Joaquin Diaz: I've been loving it so far. I heard about this from a YouTube ad where you guys partnered with Scammer Payback. Also, Ben, you missed a review.
  • (2023-02-10) Zian B. ERCE: Can we have a free version of Guardio please?
  • (2023-02-08) Jamie Perez: hi i dint have any problem ,guardio take care i recomend it to all my friends
  • (2023-02-07) Melvin Duckenfield: I have been pleased with Guardio since the day I downloaded it. There were two or three notifications of malicious websites that were immediately taken care of. The peace of mind in knowing that I'm protected made subscribing a no-brainer for me. I would recommend Guardio without reservation.
  • (2023-02-06) Pancho: Is there a way I don't need to put my credit card numbers? I just want to use the free version for now.
  • (2023-02-03) Kirk Cunningham: Spotted some websites that I didn't realize were problematic
  • (2023-02-02) Sergey Tverye: Doesn't work in Opera (tested in stable version, in GX edition and in portable version with clean profile). Useless support, which replied that I probably use unsupported browser. Probably? A support staff is unable to verify supporting state one of the popular browsers? Moreover, the site says that it supports chromium-based browsers, Opera is just such a browser. At least even the uselessness and templateness of the response from the support discourages any desire to interact with this company.
  • (2023-01-31) jami parker: Glad you were there when I was Hacked on Fb. Guardio gave me a hint to close the notice sent to me because it was bad...Thanks!
  • (2023-01-26) Tony O Seanainn: reliable and easy to use..value for money.
  • (2023-01-22) Hamidreza Omidfar: Clearly did not fix my browser hijacker issue. My chrome still switches to microsoft bing and the extension unlike what it's claimed can't even detect the hijacking let along fixing it. I am not satisfied with it.
  • (2023-01-19) drusilla hookano: just want to thank you for keeping my laptop clean. keep up the great job. mahalo from hawaii, that means thank you very much
  • (2023-01-18) Jack: app.guardio.io refuses to load and is stuck on a loading image, I have tried multiple browsers and devices. I was unable to cancel my membership as I was not using it and have now been charged for another month that I did not want.
