I downloaded this app because I knew I had a virus, and it did what it promised. To remove the virus. This app has a clear interface, and is very easy to use, and it does it's job with no problems. Only problem I have is that the app runs a bit slowly, but not slow enough to hinder the app. It's a great app overall. EDIT: In my opinion, you should probably remove the feature of locking sensitive apps from Premium, and make it available for everyone, as someone can use your stuff to blackmail yo

Hi Deigo, thanks for your recommendation. Yes the app lock has been a paid feature. We find it fair to offer top quality protection in exchange for some ads, and offer a Pro version to those who are interested in ad-free app with extra features, thanks for understanding. David*AVG

Unusable. When I tried to use this app for the first time, it displayed "Scan your files for threats too?" I selected "yes" and the next screen listed all my phone's apps. I selected almost every app. There was no way to run the scan from that screen and when I returned to the previous screen it took me into an endless loop of selecting "yes," proceeding to the list, and returning to the permission screen. Am I missing something?

I don't like that the TikTok ad plays constantly and it would be nice if the VPN were available in the free version. I upgrade, but only after I denied the upgrade a few times did they offer it at half the price. If I had denied it a few more times maybe they would have cut it in half again. They could just offer a better price initially...

Hey Matthew, thanks for your feedback. Regarding the VPN - we find it fair to offer top level protection for free and more advanced features for a little fee. Thanks for understanding. Regarding the ads - it is what it is. It actually isn't us who display the ads but 3rd parties. We do our best to block inappropriate ad content. Thanks! David

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.
