Was 5 star, has tripled adware recently and in last three days reports can't download virus defs update CONSTANTLY! Was my personal favourite AV app until ads became more important than function All other apps seem ok, browsing still fine. So why is AVG reporting as unable to update? Using Google pixel on Oreo.
I've been using AVG on all my phones for the past few years. As soon as I download an app, it'll let me know if it's a threat. I also have it scheduled to run a scan every Sunday morning which is easier than having to wonder when I did a scan on it. I definitely recommend this app to anyone who has a smartphone and does a lot of downloading, even if it's pics from Google or downloading music. 9/3/17- I love that it updates every few months to be able to stay up to date with the newest viruses and that I can clean the junk files and cache to be able to free up space on my phone.
I've given myself a week to calm down over the latest update, but I've had it. The widget, something so simple, a huge reason why many of your users use your app. I've been using you guys for years, and this is the third time I've experienced you guys drastically changing it. The previous 2 times there was a huge back lash, and numerous quick responses of "Thank you for your feedback, we're working on returning this feature" or something to that equivalent, and after awhile an update would be released that would put it back to how it was. This is the third time. Thank you for your app the for the years I used it, but I'm finished, it seems you guys just don't get it. Uninstalling.
The pro feature that tracks your phone could be helpful to some users. On the topic of viruses, my new phone has not received security fixes for almost a year, so nothing is going to stop viruses. AVG is about optimisation features and it is good for a mid-range phone. No use to me unfortunately.
Iv been using this app for quite sometime now. It has served me well. Except maybe killing running apps...it doesn't. Keep up the good work otherwise. It would really help my overloaded phone is you could actually kill running apps.thanks
No viruses that I know of, so that's good. But Chrome gets pop-ups as of late, which never happened before. Yes, the ads & notifications are ANNOYING, unfortunately this makes me disable most features just to avoid the annoyance. Suggestion: Task Killer having a list of running apps & option of what tasks/apps to kill. I want some of the apps running in the background to sync, etc., but I don't know what will be stopped until the task/app is being killed.
