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.
The app is now one big suggestion. It may impress some one new but not people who using avg for specific reasons. Like where is scanning individual files? I thought that functionality will be added no removed. Don't try to do it too simple. This app use to be one of the best but some how get lost in money digging. I know avg since Win Milénia and this is looong time a go. What it was and what it is now is 100 to 1.
I find this app to be very trustworthy, and it protects my phone, but when I purchased this app, it didn't say it was for 2016, 2017, or 2018! I have also noticed that this antivirus app does not, I repeat does not do, or update on a regular basis!?!? There are new viruses that come out every single day! I do not see this app do updates on their database that I know of? I have also noticed that my purchased AVG Antivirus AppLock, and cleaner does not look exactly the same as it looks on the submitted screenshots that are shown in the Play Store?!?!? I will admit that I have been using this app for years now, and I have not had any issues that I know of, but I have noticed that my phone is slowing down!?!? I do make sure that I close all of the apps that are running in the background, but I seem to still have this problem? Please do more updates to the virus database in this app, and I will go back to 5 Stars again! :-) I did pay decent money for this app, and I shouldn't have to sit here, and question is the app is doing its job or not!?!? Thank you very much for taking the time out, and reading my updated reply / review, the lack of updates really has me thinking🤔 please reply back to me when was the last update you did to the app, or database for this app? Thank you very much, have a wonderful, and blessed day or night😄
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.
