    I've never used it, but it isn't necessary. Up to you whether you use it or not.

    I doubt it will slow the device if you set it to just do occasional operations such as scanning apps on installation. If you leave it constantly scanning (e.g. scan every app when you launch it) then it's more likely to have an impact. Note that as I've not used the app I'm just guessing at what it might be able to do based on experience with other apps.

    I looked at it once, was not impressed.
    IMO, it is just an advertising gambit.
