First off, I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of apps that claim to boost speeds and improve performance. The majority of the time all they do is bog down the system even more. However, the AMC Security app changed my view on that completely.


After a brief introduction to the features, you proceed straight to the main screen. There’s a sign-in feature that is recommended for long-term users, and for those planning to use a premium subscription.

A premium subscription will unlock extra features, but comes as a pricey extra at $9.99 per year.


The purpose of the app is to mainly clear out excessive storage hogs, offer an anti-virus and boost your phone speed. As the proud owner of an LG G4, I saw no difference in speed and the user interface, and can only assume that features like this are designed for people who have budget-orientated phones. The same goes for the feature that cleans out your storage and cache. While I had 3GB in excess files, this was really just a fraction of my total space available.

But perhaps AMC’s strongest point is the wide variety of things you can use it for. Anti-theft, battery saver, app manager, privacy locker, call blocker and a wide variety of handy features mean that it’s really got your back. Of course you’ll need a premium subscription though.

Overall, AMC provided a decent experience. The fact that it’s not in-your-face with annoying pop-ups and that it actually works means that it is a worthy competitor against the other Play Store apps.

Is it for me?

Unless you are rocking a flagship phone, it’s likely you’ll find AMC of some use. The extra features will certainly come in handy at least some of the time, and you might just forget it’s there with the enjoyable lack of notifications.

What we liked:

  • No excessive notifications
  • Wide range of features
  • Clean UI

And not so much…

  • Pricey premium pricing

AMC Security is certainly a handy app that is targeted at users who use budget-orientated phones. The minimal notifications are something of a joy and the large range of things that you get from it are certainly a treat.
