    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.

    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

    Need to improve the accuracy of wifi speed test. Otherwise excellent product.

    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.🤜
