Good scanner but it has a lock screen add that defaults on and makes you swipe twice to unlock your phone while charging. I understand add revenue for free apps but that is just a pain ********* Edited to provide more information ********* Going to unlock your device only to see a ADVERTISEMENT is of cause for concern as i did not do any installs. taking time to find out what happened and doing virus scans only to then find out it was my ANTI-virus application showing the ad. I would like to see the lock screen default off on the update of the application and not default on as it was.
Think this app might actually be malware.. System scan detected my Amberweather widget as malware... Then opened its own charge screen lock w weather widget when I plugged my phone in a few minutes later. Muy fishy!
Changed my mind. I originally gave this app 5 stars, im taking that away, uninstalling it, and giving it 2. 2 only because i know how good the actual antivirus part of the program is, all the rest of it is pretty much useless rubbish and AD'S. AD'S everywhere! Even took over my phones lockscreen and i can no longer turn it off. So thats it. Uninstalled. Il probably also remove it from my computer and use something else because of the amount of bloated crap that is now included and not optional too.
Ads, Ads, Ads & Mysterious Pop-up Screens! Installed an update, next thing a pop-up message appeared from nowhere when I plugged my phone in. I thought it was a virus! Turns out it was this app. There was no warning and no info on the screen to tell me where it came from. It did the same thing when the trial period was running out - another pop-up screen with no info. It's really disconcerting, I wonder what else this app is doing in the background because my battery doesn't last as long. Uninstalled.
Lock screen adware The app has treated me well in the past. However, upon reinstalling recently onto a new device, it appears Avira have decided to replace my lock screen with their own advert-laden lock screen when charging. This would be considered malware by many, including myself. As such, I cannot support this behaviour and must remove this app from my device. I would encourage others to do the same.
Malware! After installing the most recent version, my phone was hijacked by an Avira screen which I could not close, and the on/off, home, back, and volume keys were all disabled. It turned out it was Avira's "recharge screen" which had seized control. The only way to get past it was to touch the Avira app's hijack page on a "swipe here" scam bar. Uninstalled and replaced with Avast. Reported to Google and other malware sites.
