It WAS a great anti-virus app. Have it for my comp and tablet, but I don't use it for my phone anymore. It worked well when I first installed it over a year ago. Now, it's just laggy, annoying, and freezing up some of my apps. Just uninnstalled it, and probably won't ever download it for my phone again.
April 2017 I don't like the new look for the boost notification... It looks.... kinda cheap! -Dec. 2012 I wish it would detect all threats,Dr. Web seems to detect more bad stuff... But the laptop version works really well so I'll give it a try :)
Avast has become as stupid as all the other silly junk cleaners out there. I hoped for a safe clean like in the previous updates but all my APKs, music files and photos got deleted. What the hell?
I paid for the pro version on 4/9/2017. My credit card was charged on 4/10/2017. The pro version worked until the update was installed on 4/27/2017. Now I get ads and I'm offered the chance to spend another $6.99 to upgrade to the pro version. I sent an email to Avast this morning and received a quick reply saying they cannot find my license. I wrote back that the charge is on my credit card statement. It's been 11 hours with no further communication So more I'm making my displeasure public. If I don't get a response, my next stop is social media.
Previously excellent protection with a good selection of features and customisable options. However, some features were made free only to be chargeable again. Very clumsy! I also pay for my computer based products so it would be nice to see a cross platform setup. I'm not paying more money! And now?! Now the Anti theft has been merged - with a subscription needed. I'm now sick and tired of Avast and will be looking for an alternative. Pathetic business model!
This use to be the case. I have valid pro Antivirus licence. I can not get it load on my device! I use a few Avast products and I found them to be very good. The support you can get when you need it is great.
