Likes Avira on my desktop so downloaded this. Seems to work fine. Except I have never found it to detect anything or restrict anything suspicious. Makes me wonder if it is really working well. Edit: Sorry but I believe it is essential for the user to know when their device was infected, and with what it was infected with. I definitely would NEED to know all of that. That would help me figure when and how my device was infected and what I would need to do to prevent that or address it's possible implication such as needing to change my passwords again. Information is power not "trouble".
I was well pleased with Avira; however, after the very attractive update, this app is no longer licensed for my 5.1 Lollipop Acer Iconia One 10 tablet. Also, when scanning apps, my system UI stops running at 55% of the scan. I had no choice but to install from my tablet. As of this date, it is still functioning on my Moto G 5.1 phone. This is a good security product but may not work on all devices.
I've used the Avira AV app for a few months now and it's kept me protected while online. I also use the Avira Optimizer and that is really useful and reliable too, neither ever seem to crash. I particularly like the blacklist option on Optimizer, great for blocking nuisance callers!

Was perfect for a long time, but lately going crazy. Always rates the Airbnb app as dangerous, and even though I select to ignore this issue the app does not do that but signals again and again that it detected this issue and I cannot quit the Avira app im any way. As said, it used to be amazing, but now it is just going crazy...
New UI is awful compared to the old one. It looks too bland, the privacy score looks unidentifiable. Also I can no longer see how many apps are being scanned because it's now just a blue bar. Finally, there's adverts everywhere - whether it being Avira ads or Google ads they're really annoying - some of the avira images have been made to big for the app so they stretch off the screen. **EDIT 11/7/17** I have just updated and added another star because I'm beginning to get on with the new UI. I am still wondering over the bland privacy score, which is only "30". I think it should be higher because I have everything enabled. If you look further into the app, you find the older UI (in the privacy advisor) which I loved (5*). Still, too many ads for other Apps, a whole tab labeled "More" - and they will give you notifications for these apps too if you don't disable them!
