This app is very easy to use. The color scheme is easy on the eye. And the features that are provided with the ultimate subscription is all you will need in an anti-virus app. Each feature is very easy to use and gives you a full explanation of what was conducted as far as the scan or anyting that was found. The protection is quite amazing! thank-you AVG

Seems to be one of the best to keep your phone protected from viruses, malware, hacks, and it's FREE... It's user-friendly, but could include more services, like a link to personal email to send scan results. Idiots cannot access my phone data. My privacy is very important, and this app doesn't allow any other 3rd party apps to gain access. FREE version has ads, but not annoying. If I start to have security issues, I'm changing my rating here from 5 stars to 1 star.

1/28/22 I Always use this app across all devices, even had the paid version at one point. I enjoyed it's security soundness with all it's available features. Would love to get it again I just can't afford it right now. I'm still looking for specials though - that encompasses multiple devices. But as far this free app is concerned I think it's great, even saw a YouTuber test it years ago. While I still feel the same way I hate that the auto scan feature, for the free version, was taken away.

What's new

* Removing Avast Anti-Theft – Our research showed that it didn’t perform as well as our other built-in features so we’re officially letting it go to focus on other protection features. Already have Anti-Theft? Don’t worry, it will still be available and working for current users until September 30th, 2023.
