This app works good. Not too laggy, and I actually think it's doing what it says it does. The reason I give it 3 stars is because of how many features you have to pay to use. Like the photo vault for example. It's an EXTREMELY helpful feature- but I can only put 10 photos in it before I have to pay for premium. I think maybe it could be extended to 20 (just a suggestion) or whatnot. And I understand that the developers have to have money to fund the app. I just wish there was more features. ⭐⭐⭐

Hey, thanks for taking your time. It is how it is for now. We find it fair to offer top level protection for free and more advanced features for a little fee. Thanks for understanding. David*AVG

A good app, but it keeps warning me of issues, and when I look at them, it is things like "web shield off" when I have set it on. I have to go into my settings and turn it back on multiple times a day. Other than things turning off randomly, it is a good software, but it's so annoying when things turn off randomly, so 2 stars.

Hi Max, it seems some app keeps killing the AVG AntiVirus running in the background (which automatically turns off the web shield). You can check https://dontkillmyapp.com, which is a nice summary of how various manufacturers use optimizing features. I hope it helps, David*AVG

The app works really well protecting your devices. In fact, a little too well! I have to disable the app to access my home wifi, to play podcasts or music, to access some of my apps ... If this app had a "trusted application" section that allows certain apps and function to operate, that would be handy. Tempted to delete the app and cancel my subscription.

Hey Joseph, this sounds very unusual to me. Our app normally does not have any negative impact on the performance of your device - nor other apps. Could you please reach out at mobile-support@avg.com? We would really like to have a look. David*AVG
