The app seems to ping me suggestions to download other AVG apps several times a day. It's overkill. I paid for an effective and discreet antivirus app for my phone. What I now have is something that seems insistent on taking centre stage. I don't want to go in and configure it every day, or download four or five other apps after having already paid. Will be uninstalling and seeking something more discreet which doesn't endlessly prompt you to download more of its products.
I have been using AVG on my home computer and now on all my mobile devices for over 8 years and it is the least intrusive, yet most effective live protection. Completely trumping the other well known and more popular Antivirus programs. There has yet to be a threat of any kind that it did not detect prior to causing an infection which is more than I can say for Norton, McAfee, or Avast. I highly recommend upgrading to the pro version if you actually care to use this app effectively.
I have paid for this App and yet it keeps trying to sell me VPN, Cleaner, Gallery etc. Come on. Leave the paid users alone. Play the role of a decent Antivirus, we will refer your App to friends and family. Since your App has become an ad Billboard for other Apps from you guys, there's no internet to refer. Looking to switch to other Apps. Because it's not good experience anymore. Show as many ads you want to free users. But please change the way the App is now for paid users.
This app has become more intrusive recently. Try to turn off 15 of the different notifications it now generates and 2 new ones pop up. App wants to control how you manage your phone when it's low on battery, when it's charging, number of apps you run, etc. It's great to have system efficiency options, but these are aggressively thrust at the user. Hope trend reverses because I used to love this thing when it was relatively silent and effective.
Love the app, but the widget now just opens up the app (task killer) and takes over the whole screen, very in your face... Used to run in the back ground. Please bring that function back. There is way too many functions going on. You can't let them run successfully in the background and then get notified it's complete. The old UI was better and not as slow.
Easy to use. Very robust. A ton of features for the money and unlimited installs across my and my family's devices. Ive tried a good number of other security apps and while many are very good, none of them give me everything AVG does. Couldn't be happier.
