It's been 3 years. No problems! The malware protection, install shield, ram boost, wireless speed test, networking security, scam protection and file scanner are superb. Free version is not crippled. Paid version is well worth it! The AVG team responds to requests for new features right away. It's a truly professional product! How much is peace of mind worth!? New features every month! It would be a deal at twice the price of the paid version. Simply the best!

Subscribed to AVG again and I like the features. Only thing is is that in order to get the best protection you have to have a paid subscription. The free AVG app is okay but it doesn't have the extra security features. Plus the free app has advertisements and the paid subscription doesn't. I've always had AVG and as far as I know it's worked fine except for once, but that issue was resolved easily.

Hi, the app can disconnect when the type of connection is changed (e.g. from Wi-Fi to mobile data or another Wi-Fi network), or when something kills our app running in the background. I can recommend you checking the website www.dontkillmyapp.com, which describes how various manfuacturers use optimizing features. David*AVG

I first started using this app 2 days ago and paid for prime version yesterday but still have ads and pop-ups galore. The circuitous way I'm supposed to get it to work is ridiculous. I've never had problems like this before with a paid app. I found something better, deleted this one, and now I'm on a quest to get my money back! One star is too high of a rating but as low as I was able to go.

Hi Carol, what exactly is the ad content you see? We remove third-party ads for Pro users, but there are also feed cards that promote features of our own apps. You can disable these in Menu - Settings - Notifications & alerts - AVG promotions. I hope it helps, David*AVG
