"Totally customizable to your needs. I've needed a program like this for a while but could never find exactly what I needed. Data Guardian ended up being the end of the road for me, and I absolutely recommend it to anyone out there who is still searching." — Susan McAllister
"How did I ever live without this? I'm paranoid so I used to think the only safe place for my passwords and information was inside my head. Guess I was wrong… and as an added plus, Data Guardian never forgets!" — Jackie Young
"The encryption level that this app uses is just insane. I won't entrust my information to anything less than Data Guardian ever again, that's for sure." — Daniel Kamp
"Koingo's customer support is incredible, and this app is always updating and improving. Just when I think Data Guardian can't possibly get any better, I'm always pleasantly surprised. Every single time." — Jasmine Taylor
"I haven't found any other application that does things as beautifully and as smoothly as this one. And trust me, I've tried just to see if I could conquer the challenge. I failed… but I'll be the first to say that I'm quite content with that. Keep up the good work, Koingo!" — Aaron Wellsgreen
"I love how diverse this app can be. I use it for everything from passwords to contacts to a tool for reminders. I honestly couldn't ask for a more complete program for all the things I need. I highly recommend this! You won't be disappointed!" — Carson Workman

"This program is like the backbone of my digital existence. I don't know how I've survived all these years on the internet without it. I would have been hooped so many times if I hadn't kept my data stored using this app. 10/10 Koingo, keep it up!" — Nicole Audette
"Great app, always improving. I really like how Koingo actually listens to their customer's suggestions and integrates them into the updates. I'm always looking forward to seeing new tweaks in the upcoming Data Guardian releases." — Riley Brooks
"I have so many different passwords and logins that I can barely tell which way is up. If it weren't for this app storing it all for me I'd probably have just given up a long time ago or made all my passwords the exact same (I know - safe, right…?) The level of encryption that this app has just blows my mind. This is the perfect password storage device, hands down." — Matt Combs
