About this app

Device protection
• Advanced antivirus: Automatically scan for viruses and other kinds of malware, including spyware, Trojans, and more. Web, file, and app scanning provide complete mobile security.

Feels like it's really doing a good job keeping my devices safe. Really breaks down the many ways to keep devices truly protected with clear instructions on how to do so. Easy to follow. Does a thorough full scan of all devices looking for any and everything. Explains recommended setting changes for the device in a way that's easy to understand. One account covers up to 5 devices, which is a huge plus to me. Overall, pretty good app! 👍 😊

Something to think about as you use this app: It normally wants "Permissions" for your "Files", "Phone", "Contacts" and "Location". I voiced my concern to Avast regarding the last three permissions and told them that I would not give most any app, especially theirs, permission to access my phone, contacts, or location. Avast threatened me and said that the app wouldn't work if I didn't give permission for those. Threats don't work well with your customers.

Dear Steve, we are very sorry to hear about your inconvenience. Our app should not be doing this, nor should it affect your device in any negative way. If you feel it does, please contact us at android@avast.com. David*Avast

All of my phones and my computer were infected with spyware, malware, and I got hacked because of it. I first tried a software that I've trusted for years. but this virus avoiding capture. after two attempts at paid subscriptions for antimalware, I installed avast free version it found 5 viruses. 1 was there since 2019, multiplying. The free version got three of them out and I had to upgrade to get the last two. But, Avast was able to clean up but other popular brands couldn't.
