    For anybody who is having a sudden loss of battery life, a hot phone, mismatched files, or think that you may have a virus, this app is for you. A couple days ago, I had downloaded an app from the internet, My phone started to heat up and slow down drastically a few moments later, and lost about 20% battery in about 10 minutes. I knew something was wrong, so I downloaded this app. When I scanned my phone for viruses, it found a virus and deleted it off my phone. DOWNLOAD THIS APP! It helped me.

    I have had a positive experience with this app. I paid for the annual avast antivirus mobile subscription. I tried to use it on my PC as well but was unsuccessful. The VPN security on mobile app does disconnect after a few days. When this happens I simply restart my phone, or turn it off for a few minutes then turn it back on and turn the VPN back on. I subscribed avast antivirus for PC for my PC and the VPN upgrade was able to be used on my mobile as well. Highly recommend 😊

    Multi-platform use, trusted virus - protection, and easy portability. So much better than "not bad." 12 may 2020 revised : I like it.but I don't like being pushed to rate these apps over and over. even after purchasing. all in all, not buggy and quick. as good as the best. no program can make up for bad tradecraft though, so still use your brains, people.

    I knew I had malware by the way my phone was acting. I had Play Protect and Gadget Guardian by Lookout running on my phone. I tried Bitdefender and Kaspersky. They all showed my phone was clean. I downloaded Avast. It found 2 issues, removed them and everything is back to normal. Talk is cheap, results matter. Avast gave me results.

    I do love this app but the in free version you need to lighten up on the amount of advertising that pops up every second. Some people can't afford the full version just in case you sent messages back saying buy the full version. Even that's probably got adds. Ps if your like me and hate notifications with this app go to apps under notifications turn all off works like a dream for me.

  6. Ronnie Johnson-avatar

    Ronnie Johnson


    It's very easy and simple to use and protection availabilities are 2nd to none.The only issue I have is that the ad for the upgrade to the premium version for 40%off pops up first for 99¢ a month and at $11.99 for the first year which I subscribed to thinking it was the advanced upgrade with all the good features like the VPN online features,the camera trap features and tons of other features.Well it isn't and I paid $11.99 for nothing.Then the offer for the 40% off the advanced pops up.

    Worth every single cent. This app does one impressive job. Although it does kind of get confusing loading the different apps and getting them working together in unison, of course I'm no computer genius maybe even all little illiterate with this stuff, but after it gets up and running it rocks. I hope it continues to operate this way, which has been seamlessly. If so they have one very happy, loyal, and highly satisfied customer right here. I highly recomend this app. Trust me, I tried them all.

    It's great app to have but my phone become very slow and need to restart many times, am sure the problem from Avast because I uninstalled it and after that my phone works faster and for more information it's a new phone with less apps installed on it , also internet browsing slow now , please update because I pay money for this app to be safe not to be angry

    If you don't pay extra money for each feature everything is covered with advertisements. It slows down both my laptop and my phone. You claim that the ads are only in the free version but that is false. I have paid for my service and adds are still covering and there is no option to turn them off in the settings. I will not be renewing when my year is up. UPDATE i have followed the instructions in Tereza from Avast's response. I still have advertisements for game installations Covering content

    We all know how it is around here! You get very limited time to get familiar with an app you just downloaded, (6 minutes in this case) yet alone how well it works, OR if it works. I'll give it give for now, for the free app. It scans super fast! It just feels right. I know that isn't much help. Also, very unintrusive ads so far. I also like the security feature. All free. Give it a try. I'm not sure if it replace my current app, but it sounded 4x faster. Give it a try!!👍

    VPN protection keeps disconnecting itself, and many times you can't even reconnect. What good is VPN protection if it can't stay connected?! It only takes a hacker a few seconds to see your IP address, so VPN protection needs to stay enabled. UPDATE: I'll add another 🌟 to make it 3 stars, and maybe even 4 stars if you can add a notification setting that notifies every time users Everytime VPN disables itself... Let me know if you do this. Thanks!

    I can't log in my google account on the app... its working on my PC and mobile browsee but in the app. Hopefully it could be fixed since I paid for the subscription. Edit: After messaging the constumer service abt my issue, they respond to me after 2 days. The issue was fixed. Hopefully they will fix the bug completely.

    Next to zero performance hit. Been using the PC version for about a decade now and never had problems with malware, mostly due to Avast actually doing its job (unlike some others i will not mention). Having Avast on my phone is mostly just a precaution, but one can never be too safe, right? And with the ultimate price of being free, not having a basic version of such a reliable AV program would be borderline irresponsible for smartphone users. Keep up the good work, Avast team!

    I have been using Avast Antivirus for over 15 years now and i always buy it for my clients as well. It works for me. The VPN works perfectly. My clients never complained about the antivirus and the VPN, so i can recommend it to any one...i am still using the free version on my phone and Laptop now but hope to get the license one as soon as our Government ease the Lockdown due to Covid-19. So i am giving you 5 stars.🤜

    Very good before all the advertisements and interruptions but that's just part of doing business. I have used Avast personally since about 2004 it has never failed always efficient. Adverts are annoying but you offer a good product for free and now you are growing to meet new challenges with new products. Thanks for a good and simple product. Michael P. Socrates

    I used to enjoy the app, I feel the anti virus part does the job. Unfortunately with the Free side come Ads, and if you or a family member unintentionally activates something such as "GameMine" which apparently is affiliated with Avast, then they can take money off of your airtime each day without you even knowing about it. Be very careful with this software...as I have been fighting with these people now (GameMine) to get my money back and to add our cellphone number to their block list so this doesn't happen in the future.

    All I have to say it's the best. As soon as I downloaded it it found 2 threats and 2 risks. It gives simple and understandable descriptions of what the virus is and doesn't take long at all. Its free only thing you would have to pay for are ads and other premium stuff Wich isn't a big deal to me as long as I got rid of those viruses I'm good. Thanks to the developer and his/her crew that helped make the app.

    I guess the Security part is ok and doing what its supossed to. But i payed for a year of the Paid version mainly for the Photo Vault, but it won't let me access all of my Photo's ! That's Bull*** t !! What in the hell did I just pay for !! I feel like ive been kinda Scamed / Cheated ! SO FAIR WARNING, AVAST PHOTO VAULT SUCK'S !!

    I have the security protection and the scan apps option. I feel better because I have suffered from attacks to my system before Avast. I am satisfied for now. BTW, Avast was recommended to me by a mellenial who had a good understanding of the problems one can experience online using different devices.

    I just installed the app, It seems to be working well. Although sometimes I am not sure about some of the functions, you could spend a LOT of time running it through all the stuff it can do. But I suppose a clean safe fast running phone is worth the time. I just re installed and bought the protection- subscription for one year.

    Just downloaded and as soon as I did it helped clean junk files, unneeded files etc. I'm using the basic/free version for now to see how it works. My phone had a virus before downloading. Hope this goes great. I gave 3 stars so far because you can't use the wifi VPN protection so you can't get virus protection over the internet without paying for the upgrade. The upgrades aren't extremely cheap. I'm testing it and if i like it I'll come back and give more than 3 stars and buy upgrade.

    Works better than I thought it would! Unfortunately the criminals already have abootkit on this and it cannot be removed. Probably is encrypted. Just did a factory reset that did not solve the problem. Hope they are found out some way. Rootkits bootkits spying voyeurs thieves that posses Sll keys botnet data miners just all around criiminals! Time will run out 4 them someday. Pros apple, Windows, and Android. What more could you ask for? This product is good but I was too LATE!

    I always had an antivirus on my phone and when it came near the time to renew it I went and did research on which app to use. I was honestly sceptical about Avast as I didn't know anything about it but reading several articles about it and seeing the ratings allocated I decided to use it. I bought the premium subscription and I have no problems with the app.

  25. Steven Huynh-avatar

    Steven Huynh


    Very easy to use. However, if you purchase this and wish to put it on a computer it would say activation failed. I called tech support and they said I would have to pay twice as android and mac is on 2 different platform. I would have to pay twice as I purchase premium on Google play which is a third party to Avast. Not secure from the sound of it....

    Just download so far so good. Feels safe. Has great reviews. Bought the Ultimate package as it's very affordable and a nice welcome 40% off for newcomers. Nice touch. I'm always skeptical about the things for mobile but have dived into all the background stuff and seems to all be legit. Very thorough and not buggy which I like. Would recommend if all still well in a few months. Like I said seems great so far. Thanks for the protection Avalast. Cheers. Dom

    I'm furious to discover that Avast has been collecting and selling my data. I checked my emails and found nothing regarding a notice other than "We've updated our privacy statement," which gives no indication of opt-in or opt-out of data selling. My Windows subscription just renewed or I'd dump Avast. 👎👎

    Very nice app, before I installed avast, my phone was very malfunctioned, I was very worried because I'm scared of being attacked by viruses, so I tried to install Avast, after scanning, My phone got a Malware, an Adware, and 3 Unwanted Files, I was very happy that my phone is not as malfunctioned as ever, thanks to Avast, you did a great job for me😁😁😁😁

    More reliable than most pay services. Been with avast since their early days. There was nasty virus (2003 i think) that caused your C: format, Norton missed it for a month not avast stopped it. On the downside, they push a lot of ads. I think it's an easy ignore.

    I love this app. I have not been able for the longest, been able to find not one app that I can honestly say I enjoy using and that has met my every bit of aspect I have wanted mainly in a anti virus cleaner. If I could this app would be a 20+ off the rating charts , I am so absolutely satisfied with this app!! I HIGHLY recommend this app to EVERYONE! I installed it in my mother & my fathers phones, and I do make sure their phones are checked on regular basis. 💯😁 Again, Thanks So much

    There is a new error message every other day now! Wtheck?! Isn't why we PAY to NOT have issues & crashes when we open things like Gmail? Plus, this last year, if you DL more than 1 app by this developer, ALL of them crash. The battery saver...! It has gotten ridiculous the worms attached to their ads too. Their program doesn't find them. I have to hook the phone up to an open source OS & dig them out. Hire some better ppl yo. Never heard back from a report either.

  33. Yosdee-avatar



    Very good app! At the beigning it may be hard to set up, but it is doable! It has many great free features as well as even better subscription features. It's great knowing that this can really protect you online. One thing I don't like is it will give you a notification every now and then saying sensitive content is detected. It's fake. It tries getting you to buy the subscription. I would really like that to be fixed so it stops worrying me about something that doesn't actually exist.

    Initially I thought this was an excellent device. However sometimes 3 or 4 times during the day it disconnects from the Web shield and fails to reconnect. I constantly have a message listinghave a risk issue and to resolve it by going to accessibility to Avast only to learn it already enable. Maybe only once in a 3 or 4 day span it shows the Web sheild has been automatically enabled only to discover less than 20 minutes later That it's disabled in my risk alert is on again.

    Free version worked fine , decided to upgrade to the premium version and would only let me use the premium features on one of the whopping two devices I had it installed on. Luckily was refunded after contacting devs so good customer service but was advised to get their 10 device premium protection for a price I was unwilling to pay to just protect my two devices. Should have a price tier for 2-3 personal devices with premium protection for only a slight increase to the one device plan/price.

    This is best app ever! Everytime i turn on my Samsung A40, chrome opens and show me 18+ content (i am not 18+) so it disturbs me, i decided to download this app, scan the treats, resolve problems, and it works now! Thank you so much for making this app. It helped member of my family too. And he rated the app with 5 stars too. And i don't have anything other to say, just that this app is amazing!

    After my phone experianced an emotionally compromising situation I was forced with the thought of putting it out of its misery until fate and my budget stepped in and gave it a second chance! Avast Antivirus! Hesitantly I downloaded the app and followed the suggestions....I could not believe it! Avast Antivirus saved my phones life! I recommend this app to anyone faced with a tight budget and difficult desition and thought of euthinization for their phone!

    If you are asking me about my experience with VPN?? Not good,. Because VPN is not protecting my phone, the reason I said that, VPN, mostly of the time it shut off by itself. And I've paid this, so called protection for whole yr. And it doesn't do any good.

    Only two, maybe three Anti-Virus software I have used for various applications and platforms in the past: MacKeeper, Sophos, and if there is another, it's not crossing my mind at the moment. But for a service to offer clean-up performance, malware scans, and other useful tasks, it's imperative that you have a service that works for you. Avast is such a service.

    So far, so good. I've only been using this antivirus for a short time, but it appears to be great protection. I had been using McAfee and wanted to switch to something that gave more admin options, more thorough deep scanning and offered a VPN. Avast has all of those features and more - all wrapped up in an exceptionally user friendly interface, with a clean layout and well organized tabs and content. Definitely worth downloading.

    I have been using Avast Antivirus now for sometime and am really impressed by the all time presence of the antivirus activities. I surely feel somebody is in control of my device security. Some times i feel paranoid about Avast watching me, always. But it's that fear of being very secure!

    I put a review in regarding how bad this app is with ads. Of course Avast added a comment for me to upgrade. I don't mind ads. I mind intrusive ads that make the product nearly unusable. Some ads are also misleading enough that I almost thought the were part of the app function. I won't be upgrading and praying for a product that makes me this unhappy in the free version.

    Avast has protected my phone and my computer for a long time now, and they offer clear instructions for which I am thankful. Their scans are quick, efficient, accurate and results include any actions I need to take. Pricing is reasonable. You get what you pay for, and I am a satisfied customer. It is niw 2020. I am 80 years old and no longer as sharp or as quick as i used to be. Arthritis makes my fingers work slowly and Neuropathy causes lack of feeling in mt fingertips. Avast keeps me safe

    I had installed an app from online and i couldn't find it, Everytime i unlocked my phone it would give me a pop up ad, i tried resetting a few things, things to try and get rid of this but nothing worked, i was about to reset my phone but i didn't want to lose and have to reinstall some apps and records of some games. So i tried this and ran a scan, only thing it found was 1 risk. This app removed that other app and boom problem solved!

    The boost claims it wont delete any photos. I have ovet 700 broken photos which leads me to believe otherwise. Update: Since I am unable to respond thru the app (there is no option without a subscription) and the redirects in the app which take me to the avast website ask me to install a different app I dont think I will be able to have this issue resolved.

    This is a very good app. I have a subscription that cover my laptop and I extended it to my phones. My subscription include the cleanup pro and the VPN app. My major problem is after scanning I would be told repeatedly that there is a problem with web shield being off, I would take the time to go through the steps to turn it on, only to be told later that it is now off again. I have tried ignoring only to be ruminded time again. U people should do something about turning it off once and for all

    At first I thought this was another one of those antivirus apps that did not do any actual work. Thankfully I was proven wrong. Avast is easy to use and does not constantly press you to buy the premium version. In case a virus is detected all you have to do is press the resolve button and nothing more. Furthermore, they listen to people's feedback, which you can not say for all app developers. Simply perfect!

    Well... I tried many apps since 1999 but I'd text these Avast apps put a smile on my face. I'm considering purchasing the full version. I already have a private company online handling my VPN. If I get the FULL VERSION BY AVAST; will it conflict with my company version VPN?? Please let me know! I rate Avast definitely 5 stars! I've used Norton & Kaspersky in the past but I must text here that Avast impressed me. I recommend the quick-&-easy to use Avast apps. I'm happy with the results. Thanks!

    Doesn't work on galaxy Samsung phones makes. When it scans it comes up go too setting enable web shield. Done this many a time on this prescription paid app n your other non prescription payed apps And both of them turn the enabled web shield off. Right after the scan says I'm protected. Also it doesn't accept the daily time of the days of the week. And it doesn't send you a message too check out what they have found. Uninstalling on both my phones.

    Been using it a month now. I purchased the premium subscription expecting it to be relatively free of ads. All of the other apps that Avast has tend to show up in menus (which is self promotion or another way to add ads). It's annoying, distracting, and bad enough that I'm uninstalling their product. If you don't mind self promoting messages on the menus and popping up, occasionally, I suppose you could live with it.

    The VPN does not work most of the time, and frequently breaks down. Have written in to them, their advice was simply to reinstall the app - which I did, to no avail. There seems to be problem with the app itself, as I see other reviewers who have encountered this as well. Either ways, it was not well addressed via the support team.

    I've tried a lot of android cleaners over the past years and Avast is a "Top Shelf" Antivirus and Android cleaner that ACTUALLY works. The free version is plenty for your phone & tablet. It really does exactly what it advertises it will do. Don't waste your time trying other Android cleaners and boosters because Avast is all you need. Turn it on, let it do it's job, and forget about it. Simple!.!

    A premier service at an affordable yearly price. You spend more on your coffee a week, or at least a month, than you would on this in a whole year. And, unlike that caffeine boost, this thing is really working in the background for you 24/7 without performance hits -- Letting you feel safe & secure. It's pretty simple to use, my grandma could do it, and if you don't mind ads or want to miss some handy features, but still with the same protection, the free version is available by default. Try it.

    Really reliable app, giving secure VPN. I have installed also Avast Cleanup and Avast Secure Line, so at last my phones are securely protected with long battery life. The online Customer Service can give prompt step by step guidance and resolve appearing problems. They are worldwide and have great variety of payed and free apps for all kinds of phones to choose from. Highly recommend!

    Avast has good stuff always. But i wasn't ready to buy it and by mistake my finger clicked on "buy button" later figured out that transaction has been conducted unknowngly and my bank charged me $35.00 extra for overdraft. I contacted the bank, they said transaction should be cancelled and they will refund that $35.00. i contacted avast twice buf nothing has been done almost 2 weeks now. If you need transaction order number let me know. Tks

    This is the first security app I've ever paid a subscription for and it's worth every penny. Very pleased with the vast options Avast provides to keep your device safe, secure and running at peak performance. I love the VPN option that's included as well as the anti-theft protections. All around a great device security app. Would definitely recommend! Thanks Avast!

    So far so good. Using Basic. Picked out some issues immediately. Easy to remove. Since then has occasionally alerted to malware downloaded with other products. Wouldn't have known about it otherwise and would still be on my phone.

    Very bad choice, upgraded to the ultimate subscription but to do a deep clean the app wants to pay more. You would think if you paid for the ultimate you would get all that is offered. But not the case, they continue to dollar you to death. I would request a refund but Google doesn't refund. It maybe a good antivirus app but don't be suckered into paying for the app. You don't get the ads but not sure it is really worth the price.

    I found that Avast Antivirius was very easy to set up, customise and use. I did not encounter any problems, apart from remembering the wide array of passwords called for on almost every app. Otherwise, I am very happy with this antivirus, as well as with the very reasonable £21.49p discounted annual price.

    Avast Antivirus and ALL related internet security products could not be better. The protection(Real-time Protection)and device cleaner, not to mention Anti-theft and related features are utterly flawless. With regards to customer services (in event it's needed) particularly Nikolas, and Dejan offered outstanding customer service and was always promptly responding to my emails. Nikolas from Customer Care ensured my query was addressed and resolved in the most professional and supportive manner.

    I've had a vast Security Premium on my laptop for some time now and I decided to get it for my phone. Even though my phone is quite old at this point, it's not a heavy app, although I do wish it was a little faster with its animations. The one issue I'm really having is I don't want it to have the ability to wipe my Google Drive. I'm having trouble finding how to deactivate that permission

    Out of all the free antivirus apps Ive used, Avast has been not only the most effective, but the easiest to use as well. The computer vers. is just as wonderful. As a cherry on top, the costumer service is great! I recieved a full refund only hours after informing them I was erronously charged after opting out of renewal, all haggle free. This was all during the coronavirus scare, so the speed was a (welcome) surprise. 100% recommend. If I had the money, I would stick with premium

    After the installation, Avast tells you to either opt for one of their paid plans or accept personalized ads (and thus trackers). I've been told there was in fact a way to opt out of this in the free version, sufficiently simple to find under settings -> personal privacy. This setting only refers to data being used to improve the app though, NOT advertising trackers. The app is very obscure in its wording regarding ads. Not to say others didn't do that as well, but bad practice nonetheless.

    Excellent antivirus, AV scores rate this free version in the top three in every category, depending on your source of scoring. Pros: Has effectively caught items and issues other so called top end antivirus's didnt. Has a boat load of options that you don't see in many free version's. Cons: Can be a little loud with ads and push notificatications. It's easy to see why it scores so high and is so effective for me. Recommended. Thanks devs for the hard work.

    There are many things within the app that are available to me in my device *(Samsung Galaxy S 10) that are also available in this app and the things you want $ for, I'm getting for free already from Google. However the app is extremely efficient for many IMPORTANT and useful tools for you to stay private, productive, and safe from predators or accidents. I HIGHLY recommended people to use this app, especially if you are not using the most up-to-date device at the time. Google "Find My Phone"free

    I didn't like the app at all, so much I wanted my money back , just like it states in the apps description, that if I'm not completely satisfied with the app I can cancel at anytime within the set amount of days then I get my money back , no questions asked... guarantee.. I have tried to cancel my subscription and deactivate and uninstall the app. But it won't let me, I look for a" contact us" link and nothing. Im not liking the way its looking here Worst app and customer service ever !

    This app works suprisingly well, the ads don't get in the way and it helps me keep my phone safe. But one problem I would like the developers to address is that I have to "update virus definitions" but it always fails, even though I have stable internet. Other than that I highly recommend.

    Last October, I purchased Avast Antivirus and VPN for computer and cellphone. The VPN works on the PC but will not connect on the phone. Support advised me to reinstall which I did. The license shows " active " but it still won't connect. I paid for a 2 year subscription and so far it has failed to perform as advertised.

  71. SATTY V.W-avatar



    Worst it keeps notifying me about promotions are turned off and it does not go no matter what you do,I bought premium version to avoid it and it just kept me a notification of avast instead of adds and I paid for subscription. app claims that is has cleaned memory and killed apps but apps in background are running and avast just keep it faking of optimisation. Services I paid for are not even shown on the app once I logged into app. Security is just a show on app it doesn't do anything..

I hate this app

    Great value for price, and it's good to have piece of mind with anti theft options. To have it and VPN service for like 2$/ month is a phenomenal deal.

    I don't think it's doing anything for my phone because it still slowing down not correcting it and I'm getting stuff sent to me that I did not ask for coming in PDF and documents that I did not ask for and it's being shared to me have access to my Google Drive you need to work harder and prevent this that's why I give you two stars.




    I downloaded something I shouldn't have, and minutes later I had random tabs opening with ads on my phone. I was scared, so I went to the appstore to see if I could find an app to get rid of the virus I had. I found Avast, downloaded it, had a virus scan done and it was gone. I now actively use Avast and it has helped me immensely. And the best part is that it is free!

    This app is remarkably good. It helps me with the games. I download and keeps my phone safe. Thankyou for that. In my opinion I think it is a safe and easy antivirus app to use. My brother and I download games off the internet for a GBA emulator it has work completely fine and we both love this app.




    This app is AWESOME!!! It helped me detect and find a hacker who had cloned my phone, was hijacking my email & made a gmail account from my Instagram account name and then tried to "link" it to my my actual email address as the recovery account. Had I not installed AVAST when I did, I would not have caught these things and been able to get this information to "FREE" myself and data from this person. I highly recommend this virus protection and software. The basic version is free!!!

    I like this app more than I expected. I got it because I've never gotten a virus with Avast installed on my pc. I am impressed by the security features in the mobile version. The free version had annoying notifications but I haven't noticed them in the paid version.

    This app is becoming a royal pain in the ass! Continually bombarded with tweaky upgrade "offers". It has become as much of an aggravation as Norton became which is why I dumped them years ago.

    There are a few key issues with this app. 1. The VPN does not always function, 2. The cleaning tools in the initial paid app has a flaw with the lg k20 phone where you may loose data on cleanups as it qualifies it as temp when the data was actually images, 3. customer service for the paid application is lack luster and they take 2 to 3 weeks to get back to you on a ticket, when you reply they quickly close the ticket without response and send a survey. I would not recomend the paid version.

    Amazing app! I know i had a virus and i had no services to detect my virus, i download the app and it was extremely fast at finding the exact file name of the virus. Its a shame i can't get the full version which is at a great yearly fee of £28/year. Other anti virus apps would make me pay £28/week. No scam and great fast service. And rarely I get adverts. Highly recommend 👍👍. Note: the only problem i have is sometimes it doesn't work sometimes stopping my device from working.

    Was not sure that I even needed this but yes you do need it. It can close all these background apps running & do all sorts of good things for your phone. The only thing that I am not sold on is the VPN. It is very slow, laggy and often does not load Web pages at all.

    I always have a hard time wondering if these things actually work or not, and if they're worth having. This app is easy enough to use and does not invasive. I signed up for antivirus and cleaner.I thought it included the VPN but it doesn't you have to pay more for that and before I knew it I spent 15 or $16 +still don't have a VPN and would now have to pay $24 to get a VPN. Somewhat confusing. Why not just put everything in one instead of having three different apps for everything.

    No other antivirus apps found the dangerous virus in my phone but this app founded. And the cache in my phone was 10 GB. It cleared the cache. I tried many other apps but no app founded the virus and the cache. Really best recommended app for both iOS and android.I am not just kidding. My cache was really 10 GB which this app cleared. I checked in google files and I was really shocked that the cache in my phone was 10 GB. After downloading this app my phone is running smoother than before😎😎😎.

    I started with Avast for my PC as I read they're no.1 in looking after Windows7 since Microsoft ended support. It was soon into trying the Windows free version that I tried the Cleaner, Passwords, Security for my Android 9. Very impressed! Everything you could want for cyber security. The free features were alltogether good enough to be secured but as with present times well made app standards, upgrade features were tempting on value. Overall mostly satisfied with operational simplicitys ◇♧♤♡

    Love this app!! I have it on all my mobile devices. I'm very happy that the ads are not super intrusive. Premium isn't a requirement, either, unless you would like extra protection. The free options are just perfect for maintaining a healthy device.

    I bought the premium on my laptop and then it says I need the cleanup premium as well, why would you put it in the same app if you need to pay twice , very unsatisfied, didnt even get an email regarding my purchase and my avast icon is no longer the logo just a file , this is terrible .

    Pretty good app. Basically the same as AVG antivirus without the ads. Helps clear up my phone's RAM. Only reason that I am only giving four stars instead of 5 is that their photo vault does not allow for videos and they scored a little lower on malware detection than other android virus protection programs. Other than that it's a great app.

    I have used Avast quite a number of times on different devices and operating systems. It has evolved and become different but I have been ever-satisfied with its functionalities and business models albeit surprised at their alterations and changes in direction. My favorite was some time ago where Avast would speak and affirm that repositories and other somesuch had been updated. That was sterling. It was like a healing affirmation. Thank you for your contribution to our technological ecosystem.

    It's just a Spyware app. I mean just look at all the permissions it has. Like has access to your calendar, camera, contacts, location, microphone, phone, and storage. And many more spyware permissions. If you don't pay for it, your the product. It's as simple as that. So in conclusion, app developer, please tell me why you have these permissions... I bet you won't.

    Great protection so far, does what it is supposed to do. Minimally suggestive, minimally invasive, not a storage hog. Initially irritating given how much it kept suggesting add on apps, enjoying it now that it has slowed that right now.

    This app has kept my cell phone cleaning to a deep cleaning & boosting to shut down any running in the back ground, it's quick & easy. For these reasons this is my pick as the best one available to do all for easy to use you can even setup a time, it will perform the cleaning boosting & check for & virus or problem & it actually lists amounts of files cleaned, boosted & space cleaned & amount of spaced cleaned & how many programs shut down..THAT SIMPLE !!!!!

    If you're looking for a app to actually help your phone then you found it I 100 percent recommend this app if you have low storage and if you just don't want a virus on your phone . And it's checks if your wifi is safe to connect to , like come on what app do you know that does that. And that's some of your reasons that you need to download this app. Believe me when I say you're gonna love this app once you download it. I can't tell you how much I love this app but I can only put 500 words bye
