UNCOMPLICATED PEACE OF MIND!!! I've used Avast products on my PCs and Devices for more than 15 years. It has saved me far too many times to recall. It doesn't place any added load on my system's performance like so many other anti-theft/anti-virus/anti-malware security systems I've looked into in the past. Totally care-free with many convenient added features to keep me safe and secure.
Relatively Simple / Great Results As the title mentions, the App was generally easy to setup and configure - but the results are fabulous. We've tried out most of the options (like find the phone, etc) and it comes up trumps. Naturally, we didn't use "Erase the phone" options or other things that would permanently disable the phone, there's plenty of them! Overall, I think it's great, and as I've linked it to another phone number, if I unfortunately have my phone taken I'll either be able to get it back - or ruin it for anyone who's got it!
Update Sms control returned so all is good again! They have removed the secure sms control part of the app with no notice.It's not acceptable to change key security features without notice. You can still send messages from their website but that's no use if your away from a data signal when travelling. Going to look at alternatives and remove AVAST!
Use to be awesome! This app use to be awesome! Siren would activate when needed and locating was great! Now the response time is so slow what's the point? I needed the siren cause I couldn't find my phone but it didn't go off till a week later at least! Please fix these Avast! Use to love now not anymore.
Great app, very secure I'm a Web developer and have tried numerous ways to unistall/turn off without using admin pin. Couldn't do it. Fantastic app. GPS location is spot on to a few metres as well if phone gets lost/stolen. A must have app for your mobile.
Disappointing Oct 2016: Tried setting up the app and found problems. 1. You can only upload to Google Drive, why not others? 2. While setting up my Avast account, I typed in the minimum 7 chr pw (letters & numbers), but the app said I'm using less. 3. During set up, menu options let you set up the app as a Device Administrator and switch on Usage Access. After set up, the options disappear, so if you want to switch them off, you have to find them in settings, if you remembered that you switched them on.
- Fixed dark thefties on some devices
- Cool new Avast logo!
- Suggestion cards on tablets now centered
- Added a note about cost of SMS messages in case of theft/loss
