About this app

AVG Secure VPN & Proxy for Android helps you stay safe and protect your identity and information while connected to the Internet. As long as AVG Secure VPN is on, any data you send or receive is protected. Even on public Wi-Fi. Connect to an optimal location via proxy VPN for fast and reliable web surfing.

Browse privately and anonymously with AVG Secure VPN.

Choose your location to unlock apps, content and websites which are geo-restricted.

Our private encryption VPN ‘tunnel’ prevents hackers and thieves from stealing your data via public/open WiFi hotspots.

VPN on/off dashboard widget - a simple one-click widget for turning on your secure connection. Best for quick hotspot shield security.

Geo-restricted content access is made possible by changing your IP address (virtual location) using our VPN proxy servers.

WHAT IS A VPN? A Virtual Private Network (VPN) protects the data you upload and download from the internet, provides security for any data you send from your device, and anonymizes your internet activity.

HOW DOES VPN WORKS? Our VPN service protects you from data theft by using a virtual encryption shield ‘tunnel’ to secure your public/open WiFi connections. Once secured, your communications are impossible to spy on.

Private, anonymous browsing – when using AVG Secure VPN Proxy, your internet connection will appear to originate from a different virtual location. Use it to hide and anonymize your banking logins, chats, emails and payments.

Unblock apps, content and websites - some websites and content providers block access from certain locations. With AVG VPN Secure Proxy for Android, you can unblock these. Choose from a variety of servers, located in numerous countries and locations to change your IP address.

Some countries prohibit or restrict the use of VPNs. Countries in which our VPN solutions are not currently recommended for use: Belarus, China, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Oman, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates.

EDIT 02-15-24: I did as you advised and cleared out all memory, then uninstalled/reinstalled app just to make sure. This seems to have worked so far. I'm going to give four stars now, because the update shouldn't have caused this! 02-06-24 update sucks... (1 star) Started receiving "your wi-fi network is being watched" messages when connected to my trusted network and the VPN is turning on. LOCATION PERMISSION SHOWS "ALLOW ALL THE TIME"!!! This did not happen prior to the update!!!

Hi, sorry to hear that. I would recommend you to clear the app data, or reinstall the app. If it doesn't help, please contact my colleagues on mobile-support@avg.com or directly from the Menu → Help & support → direct support and add more details. Thanks. Hür*AVG

Note: this is not free, but seems to be less expensive than most other VPNs. As of now, there is a 12 month option billed through google that comes out to $1.50/month. App is easy enough to use. It includes most features you would expect from a VPN (can enable for just specific apps, etc.) Most Importantly, it allows me to view my security cameras/doorbell while connected to my works guest WIFI, which they block for some reason. Google 1 wouldn't connect either, so now I am using this AVG VPN

Very sporadic when attempting connection... Doesn't stay connected when it does, and will disconnect on its own without notice. I'm actually surprised I haven't been hacked as of yet! AVG consistently asks for ratings, and feedback which has been provided, but never received a reply to THIS issue!! it appears AVG presents a"New" feature to their software every few weeks, but I suggest they work out the bugs first, before moving onto the new stuff! Unfortunately, a (1/2) ⭐ isn't an option 😡

Hi, try this: 1. Check your internet connection (without VPN). 2. Select a different AVG server location. 3. Select a different VPN protocol. 4. Disconnect other VPN services. 5. Check that your subscription is active. 6. Try to uninstall and reinstall the app. If none of the above helps, please contact Support (see the app's Menu). Tereza*AVG
