User friendly, low cost, and doesn't use a lot of battery and system resources. One thing I would add for possible fufure improvement is that if the Avast can add multiple web browsers into the monitoring list (currently, it only allows for the primary browser) it may add more value to the software. Well, just a thought. Great app, and I would definitely recommend this to my friends.

Avast is suppose to be an antivirus company that specialize in defense tactics of various bugs & etc. The development team needs to get back in the lab:go back to the drawing board. I ALSO PAID FOR THE PREMIUM. When a link in a chain is found to be vulnerable you fix it. Plain & simple. App lock useless. I know it doesn't work all the time. Facts. Every so often and I mean to often app lock just doesn't work.

This Security App is excellent. It was not easy to get it set up but afterwards it is a pleasure to work with it. I like the ability to set Auto-Scan, then you are notified that the results are ready for your review. I was skeptical at 1st but the App is busy doing it's job every day, 24/7. I decided to purchase the enhanced version at a very reasonable price. Try it, You will find it secure, efficient, & trustworthy.
