F.Gunn It's free and make you feel more secure of your cellphone. I tried most features and they works perfectly. The only issue is that the location does not update quickly enough - the location is 2 days ago. But the problem is the same if you trace your device via Google's Android Device Manager. So, I still recommend Avast to all cellphone owners. It's Free and has more features than Google's to protect your phone.
A Great Loss Protection App With each new release this app keeps getting better. What follows is my previous review. It is all still true. While my cellphone has never been stolen, this app makes me feel a lot better. It has all the pieces necessary to protect my cellphone. Coupled with the security features of my cellphone (Samsung S7) this app is a good guarantee against having my information stolen. Would recommend it to any cellphone owner.
Can't find phone now... Find phone function is now inert. Overly complicated. Text simply goes through to phone. Spams target number with repeat texts. Now useless. Way better before when you got a link back and you could click on it. Can only use SMS commands if the phone I want to sent SMS from has this installed. Gone downhill.
Totally useless - no hard reset protection They used to have a really good rooted version but that no longer works. This one can be easily overcome by simply booting into recovery and factory resetting the phone.
Can't uninstall. Hate. Can't deactivate app as device administrator, crashes settings. Can't login to avast account, tells me email or pwd wrong, but it's not. Called & spoke to 3 people b4 being told i need to submit ticket on website. Waste of my time. Super annoyed. Grrrrr
Newest Update Breaks Tablet Functionality Now, the only way to launch the app when hidden is to call your PIN. If you have a tablet without a SIM, this is obviously impossible. Previously, you could still send a launch command from the web interface, but this has been broken as well. If you are upgrading, you can no longer send any commands to your non-SIM tablet, since SMS won't work either. Unfortunately I recommend Cerberus or Android Lost instead if you have a non-SIM tablet.
We are delighted to present the new Anti-Theft 4 that is easier to use than ever! Full compatibility with Android M, revamped user interface and all features are COMPLETELY FREE.
FOR UPGRADING USERS: If you are upgrading from previous versions, your settings WON'T be preserved. You need to configure app again.
