I have been using Avast over 3 years and so far it has not let me down. The total premium security is well worth it as it always warns and stop you if malicious attempts are made. For the PC I would highly recommend for excellent protection against the latest threats and for mobile it is exceptional but with a bit of a battery drawback if you have a small capacity like 2000mah. Overall, give it a try and test it fully before you make any decision/rating.

I have used both free and paid versions of this app. Both are truly great! I currently have the annual yearly membership and have been 100% satisfied with it, especially compared to others out there of its kind. The free version is good as well, for the basic features, it does everything it says it will do! Very reliable app! I would highly recommend Avast to everyone and anyone who needs security and other features for their phone!

Great app! The user interface is very well designed and the features are everything you want. I have also contacted customer service and technical support asking about various features, upgrades, and for just basic info, and they are very quick to respond to any questions, no matter how trivial. I love Avast and I actually purchased their deep cleaning app and I'm thrilled with it, too. Definitely worth every penny I've spent. I am grateful someone suggested Avast to me! Get it! A+
