Reviews From google play store

While the app does offer protection, it's VPN seems limited by time...it I'll only work a little bit then stops...and will not restart. Seems like avast wants me to spend extra on a dedicated VPN program.....why offer it on the pro version if it's limited. Also....and this is a major let down that seems to be related to the app: my phone has become extremely slow and will frequently freeze. This is perhaps the most annoying aspect.


More irritated and frustrated since i bought a year subscription of Avast Antivirus . Keep you posted. Aug 28 ,2019. I thought Avast was going to be the answer to my problem . What is my problem a hacking of my data. It seems to be working but I'm still disappointed app gets turned off ghostly. Other apps drain my data on the 1st of each month . Now FBI is warning Smart TV's are hacked most easily Avast can you provide security ? It sucks having to factory reset my android every month. Lay men


Literally the worst service ever. Couldn't load activation code, which then disappeared. Spent hours looping in useless circles on support, which told me lots of places an activation code should be, but wasn't . The spent forever trying to request a refund, which you can only do by calling a USA number, I am in the UK and it said I would have to pay international charges. Eventually fudge an email requesting a refund under tech support issues. We'll see if that works. Really couldn't have worse things to say about this. Incrediblely painful, stressful and frustrating. Do not use them.


Easy to use. One of the highest rated antivirus engines out there. I know that on windows it doesn't use much processing power. I would assume the same with Android, but you never know. Back before they had this on Android there were a lot less ads. Definitely recommend.


Been using this app for over a week and starting to show signs like my old vpn service where vpn disconects when i force close chrome and, or vpn randomly disconecting then reconnecting.. Every now and then, Avast vpn disconects then reconnects also, like my old vpn service. I've unsubscribed my old vpn service because of this issue...pls protect your paying consumers like it says on your descriptions..


Looks like pop-up ads r gone, retrying.Hated the pop-up ads, but in the end they r 1 of the best at what they do. I've bn usin ths apk for a few years and I like its features, BUT now pop up ads. It already has ads all over the fkn place, what the sub. accounts not makin $. Im thinkin of tryin other apks! Greedy


Been using Avast for quite a while now, sort of years I believe. Haven't had any major issues, merely glitches and of course operator errors (most). Kept me in the blue zone and well out of the black ever since the beginning. I personally would recommend AVAST. Cheers The sniper.


I think I've had a malware virus on my phone for some time because I'll get random app pop ups to download stuff & my battery just would never last. I downloaded this app & not only did my battery ended lasting three times as fast, it seems better too! my phone itself♡♡


I installed and used the paid version, it supposed to secure the apps which i have set by prompting for a password each time i open the app. Unfortunately this is not the case. Its only asking for password whenever I restart my phone. After that no password is asked for.


Very good app. First time tried at work to keep our PC protected. Much better than other providers. Now using for my computer and mobile protection. Full version for computer, but free version for smartphone at the moment (still checking how it works).


Avast is the best antivirus I have seen not just for my phone but also on computers, with also being able to utilize other features like boosting ram and cleaning my caches I have seen a dramatic increase in my phones speed and performance.


I've used avast for years, and I'd never use anything else. Never had a problem and the security is always great, whether using a premium account or the free account.


Good antivirus, good junk cleanup and good shutdown of apps running in the background. Just a bunch of ads, but that's what allows it to be free, I reckon.


Keeps telling my my WiFi router might be unsafe. I scan it, it comes up safe then 5 minutes later same again. Only been happening since last update. It's gotten really annoying now


Too many ad notifications to upgrade Avast, sometimes x2/day. Now the option to block the always on notification stopped working, so there's a constant "we're always looking out for you" Avast notification on.


Would be 5 stars, but there doesn't appear to be a way to ignore certain suggestions in the app (not notifications, but suggestions for other Avast products). It wants a specific setting which I do not, so it keeps bugging me. Aside from that, all looks great! Just installed and configured, so I can't comment on long term yet.


So far so good.. Not had it long but seems to be working fine only pain is they want you to upgrade and pay... See free 1st but ads also with it.


Best antivirus app I've tried so far. Helpful, doesn't appear to eat up my battery like some apps I've tried, apps are not overly disruptive and it's easy to use even for a tech challenged sort.


Why isnt the app updating its virus database? It's been 3 days now, and the app still hasn't been able to resolve the issue.


I feel so much safer now. I had spyware on my phone so they stopped me running important apps, which was fixed right away with avast. I also had a lot of other problems like my Bill's were always higher every month and my phone would not hold a charge for long. That has also been fixed since I purchased Avast. My Identity is now hidden so no one can hack me again. You can't put a price on feeling really safe and i do now. I have a very limited budget, but i am glad i purchased Avast.


Very happy with Avast's update to their paid service options. I was considering canceling when they were all separate, piecemealed, & had individual fees. Being able to share devices was huge for me. I hated the updated pricing model. I have no complaints about the service. Now I'm hoping they'll do something similar regarding their VPN, especially for faithful customers. Won't be using it otherwise.


good antivirus software. Useful addition and protection. Big disadvantage, even if you have a subscription you will be bombarded by advertisements from Avast


I like what I see in the free version. I'm trying to upgrade but when I try it says something like verifying purchase or something like that arrow is spinning and spinning and spinning it never comes out of it! Why??? You guys piss me off. I've wasted an Hour just trying to contact you with no results just so I can upgrade!? Come on....really? I'm resorting to this. Never mind, I've uninstalled it.


I have a valid Avast Premium Security (Multi-Device) subscription that includes Avast Mobile Security Premium for Android. When clicking on the Avast Mobile Security Premium for Android download link, I am being directed to the free Avast Antivirus – Mobile Security & Virus Cleaner which offers in-app purchases. I once had that free version in my phone and it disappointed me. Why is it I cannot access the Avast Mobile Security Premium for Android included in my paid subscription? Post-edit: I managed to activate the Pro version, and now it works to my full satisfaction.


Well, I installed this app wishing it will work as it used to but unfortunately, the ad version has some ads that have malware in them and this keeps on installing those app onto my phone. In short, the avast is infesting my phone with malware. For my phone's safety, I have to uninstall. Live wallpaper is the most commonst


No Web Shield as advertised! I got this apo specifically for real time protection when using a Web browser. This app claims to have this, but it does not. It only offers Web shield lite(Useless on anyone running a modern phone as it is Android 5 and below), and Web shield with accessibility is nowhere to be seen. Add in the aggressive adverts, and this is hot trash.


Easy to use, great. It was a breeze to install this app. The steps and instructions were clear cut.


Overall good experience, I think they should focus on reports, if any incident occur alert to user at the earliest.


Everytime I let this scan my phone, it always say "no threats found" but I still receive a lots of ads (which comes from the virus.) I always scan and re-scan it. Though my phone still have virus, Avast Antivirus tells it don't have. Why is that? I need to remove the virus. It bothers every important files I have here. So, please:))


I love it.before I got the App I always had adds poping up everywhere in my games,home screen and even on YT even though there do come adds up on YT my whole screen turns black for 10 seconds then an add pops out and now I don't get it anymore because of this app and I really think you should install it It's not a waste of time! <3


I have used Avast antivirus on my Galaxy S8 since I got it. The last couple of years since I bought this phone Avast has yet to find one virus or malware. Either I am very lucky, or Avast antivirus doesn't do very much. After a couple of years of consideration, I am of the opinion that's Avast antivirus doesn't do very much.


Perfect, but I've been using Avast for years and didn't expect anything less. Great job!


It's decent at keeping the phone clean if junk. But the free version has intrusive ads that pop up randomly when the phone is active. Having ads within the free potion of the app is ok, I get that. Having their ads overwrite other activities at random times? I don't like that at all.


I love Avast; I've been using Avast on my computers/phones since I was 13 (19 now). They've always been helpful, super affordable (they also do special deals for long time user; at least I think they still do on pc) and have always had an amazing team. I'll most likely use them for as long as they're around.


Well, it never gives me any problem, and i trust avast since i use their services on my pc too, the VPN is kinda meh since it slows down my internet connection but thats okay since i only use it on certain things. The only problem im facing is the anti theft because it wont connect to my pc for some unknown reason


While this is a reasonably reliable virus scanner, it should be thought of as ad-ware or spam-ware, meaning, in exchange for using it, you must be subjected to spam and ads. I turned off notifications for this ap because it was being so annoying. It likes to tell me how dangerous disabling notifications is every time I use it, as well as encourage me to install other avast apps, and also gas apps, games, and the kitchen sink. I don't delete it only because I can scan for problems once a week.


Seems to do what it says but I tried to upgrade my subscription to ultimate multi from the app but the ultimate and ultimate multi options are unresponsive and the header underneath the 50% off banner is all jumbled. I would also like to know an I gonna be charged the full amount of the subscription on top of the basic subscription fee I was just charged?


Best antivirus app I've ever used on any phone. I like the way that it gets rid of the pop-up ads on some apps.


Trusted, secure, more intuitive all the time, and a terrific suite of services. What more could you ask for?


I have been a avid supporter of Avast for many a year...since 2010 if I recall. This nifty piece of software packs in more than enough security features, as well as having a super UI. Initially I found the purchasing process a bit of a nightmare, it could also be due to being up all night, work load! I have to say that with out a shadow of doubt, Avast is the best option when looking for online Protection!


Works great. Finds trackers and gets rid of them. I love the ease of use this program provides!


Every things absoute grand".no complaints well!! Nothing any diffrent in more then needed". But history apps that do every thing!! Nothing but use to mutch" storage bat life..can be anoying!!! My top 3 avast!! Mcfee!!! Norton!!!.All spealized!!!. In diffrent's impotant!! Things!!!..log dog, is good app,,


Its still earlier and it may be that i uninstalled some apps that were draining my battery I'm not certain but before i downloaded this app i couldn't make it six hours without needing a charge but today its almost 4:30 pm and i still have 48 percent and my phone hasn't been connected since 2:00 am. I'm still a little skeptical but so far so good.


Its great, though I don't like all the microtransactions for all the other security options to get. Maybe if you did like a bundle and you pay annually that has all the other options for extra security. It would be nice to have that option to pay for everything yearly at once.


Not bad, not too many alerts or notifications. Other similar apps flood you with notifications and actions to take, etc.


The basic app has been downloaded to my cell phone for several days and appears to do what it says it would. There are ads but they don't seem to interfere with the app's operation, and the junk files left behind by them are being cleaned out by the app's junk files cleaner. All in all, it seems to be a good app, does what it says, although I've yet to try the premium version...


I'm done with this app! It's constantly sending notifications, well at least it's constantly ringing, but not showing anything. It rings every few minutes and is so annoying, it goes off all day and night. I can't delete it bc it says it has to be deactivated so I tap the deactivate button and comes up with a notice that says it's an administrative app (I think) and has to be deactivated, really Wth? I turned off notifications and it still beeps. How do I delete this? I want it gone!!! HELP!!!


Experience is bad upto now avast lures you in, gets you to purchase avast clean up app. Then wants you to get their VPN of which I already have a VPN, NORD VPN. This is disastrous how in the hell is this going to work for me. They always want want want! Anyone from Avast to answer me, What's my next move. Or can I delete both your app's and waste what money I paid you.


First time installing this Program. Therefore, it's to new to give Five (5) Stars. On thing I do not like is the constant notification that AVAST is running. How do I disable this? I have a screens hot, but not able to upload it here in this forem. Google should Chang this, and allow up to post screenshots.


Good work, but the app. Need more simplelisty and the app.s interface has many options, that makes interface very noisy. Thanks


Used other antivirus apps, such as clean master, to find the malware in my phone. The apps reported back as all clean. Yet ads still popped up on my phone randomly. I looked further for help and was suggested Avast Antivirus. The app was user friendly and through a complete focused scan through my phone, it had found two threats to my phone, an app with no picture or name! Thanks to Avast, I now have the peace of mind to use my phone without being worried of being taken over by a virus. Thanks!


Very very nice Security suite with robust protection features. But, one thing I would like to mention, Avast constantly try to push their other product through warning type ads within the application, its maybe good from business point of view but, lil bit irritating for the users. I hope avast would resolve the issue.


This is insane. I don't understand why it shows up in my Avast account that I only have Avast SecureLine when I clearly also have Avast Ultimate Multi through GooglePlay...I guess that means my mobile device is secure but I'm not covered on my laptops? Why can't your product subscription information be more clear? It's infuriating to see that my virus protection is marked as expired. Why is nothing clear or easy to navigate? If I want my mobile device AND my laptop to be secure I need to pay two separate extremely high fees? I am extremely disappointed with this experience.


I am looking for the option to lock out doing a hard reset. The last time I had Avast mobile it offered that option. I may have overlooked it. Please note the rating will/may increase as time passes as I need to see it's impact on my new device. The only thing separating my phone from the regular P.O.S is it has 3GB of ram. 😃


Brilliant app, although to be of any real use to have to have the premium, but something for the kids phones, brilliant, easy to use, straightforward and no hidden costs. For a free app, it won't let you use much until your on th premium version that's the only downside.


Great anti virus protection, with talk killer, boosting much needed ran at the touch of a button. And a pretty good accumulated junk cleaner. Highly recommended, hell the price is right, and just cause it's the basic version, has absolutely no bearing in the quality of its security. I do recommend you go pro if you are dealing with sensitive information on a few devices. Worth every penny, especially when compared to some of the competition's pricing.. 5/5 Great software.


I currently have McAfee and am not happy. Paying for five devices and can only run on one. Avast is doing everything they advertise and I'm using the free trial. I will switch to Avast security and install on all my devices. Keep up the great work Avast.


So far so good. Used this several years ago on my PC. Now using on my phone. Great app!


As an antivirus application it seems to be doing it's purpose and doing so dutifully, especially for free. Given that, I am skeptical of many antivirus applications/software, henceforth I will see if it withstands but couldn't give it the fifth star due to it being a recently downloaded application.


One of the better antivirus apps. Other never detected that I had a major issue with my phone. Avast detected it and fixed. Just wish I knew they had an Android app long time ago. Been using it on my PC for a long time.


Smooth and fast operations. Can definitely see difference in improved phone performance.


Seems ok, but absolutely LOADED with ads (unless you pay of course). Not sure how long it will be before I decide to uninstall it and take my chances, rather than have unwanted ads thrust at me all the time!


Absolutely a must have. This is the first cleaner booster that im not wondering if its even helping i havent even payed a dime the free version blows cms browser out of the game. Fast and easy to use. And its not too flashy where ur ram speed dies running it. Great job avast!


Outstanding performance. Does what it says and more. Breakdown of apps is astonishing and impressive that AVAST controls the app regardless what the app thinks. It's like putting poison out for bugs. It may take a couple treatments but but it will be gone if you want it gone. Hats off to the developers at AvAst. Thanks for bringing a program that is actually designed to help the consumer and not blow hot air up our A****


I installed this because my little brother installed an app from the internet (he doesn't quite understand what is safe to install and what isn't) and accidentally downloaded a bunch of viruses and stuff. I opened this app, and it took like 10 seconds to set everything up. The app scanned the phone, and told me what was going on. I clicked the button to fix the problems, and now everything works fine! 5/5


Have always used avast on home PC per our IT guy.My phone is s l o w & delayed when I click on something to do.Takes like 5 seconds for keyboard to pop up then i start using it & wont show what im writing for about 20 letters then posts it all at once. My battery isnt draining no where near what it was before i installed this.Calls are still dropping & its like it taking a picture when i awaken the screen to use. I paid for both 1 year of security and 1 yr of the clean up app.States no threats!


I just had a popup advert offering avast ultimate for £18.99 for a year, (have saved screenshot) but it didn't detail what that bundle consisted of or if it ment just a single year. So after checking out what ultimate meant online it said had amongst other features, Svast VPN. On clicking 'get ultimate' the Google Play payment page said it was £23.99 and didn't show Avast VPN. What gives?


My phone was acting up so bad before I downloaded Avast Antivirus. It would shut off on its own, ads would pop up over all of my apps out of nowhere, and apps would randomly close at the most inconvenient time. As soon as I let Avast help, there was no more of any of that. I genuinely recommend downloading at least the free version, but paying for perks will definitely help you keep a even still healthier phone. 100% works for my Samsung Galaxy S9+. Don't let you phone down folks!


Its good for clearing cache n regular junk. I have been downloading multiple android virus apps to try and get rid of this viralupdatestoday, it keeps opening internet by itself. Avast didnt get rid of it. Niether did Norton and malwarebytes so off to the next one.


Thorough scan! It's good for peace of mind. This is a solid app especially for free


Great AV App. Good range of tasks, easy to use, and set out well for ease of understanding and use. Used Avast for years on my different computers, and always recommend it to family and friends. Don't know if a Boot time scan would be useful on Android, however, the boot time scan capabilities in the PC version is so helpful at detecting viruses before they load in to memory and execute themselves is a must and has become a frequent task on my computer. Cannot fault Avast!!


I really like this app and so far trusting it. It has been keep everything up to date on the cellphone so scanning at it certain time make me feel a little less worried what's going on. Only annoying thing is the ads.


Great and easy to use App. I highly recommend and the price is right...


Works well, bought premium for no ads , still get pestered by features not available or to upgrade


Works very well and doesn't cause problems. Great, easy to use software. Thank you!


Low impact on battery and device performance. Good amount of features,but wifi security scan fails every time. Suggestions: allow user to dismiss naggy messages on app home screen like "Activate anti theft!" and "on a data diet?". I don't want to use that stuff and would prefer not to see those messages all the time. Also would like some confirmation that web protection is active, such as search engine result ratings/check marks similar to the Avast Online Security for desktop browsers.


Have been using Avast products on my laptop for about 12 months now and I have been pretty impressed with the ease of using your product and how well it finds little bugs and viruses. If you do weekly services and scans the laptop has been handling everything that I have thrown at it. I had PC Keeper running on the same laptop and I was forever calling their technicians to get it sorted out because the programs would go walkabout and I would have their technicians trying to get me to pay more.


Love this app. Being able to lock individual apps with a pin number is fantastic.


I'm having problems with malware on my phone. This app catches it, but doesn't stop it, entirely. The same thing with emails phishing for my data, although this doesn't scan for them. Wish it did.


I like the software and use the paid version. It is intuitive and seems to do its job. I don't like the clutter of Avast prompts to get me to purchase other services and I particularly don't like that VPN frequently disconnects. I get a much more reliable connection through Orbot.


This is a very economic, and effeciant Antivirus software to run on your personal computer it may not be #1 or rate second best however it is competition and with that I am content, it meets internet requirements and that is sufficient enough...


Gets a big thumbs up from me. I used Avast many years ago on my PC, then recently I was trying to get rid of some kind of adware/virus on my phone and came across this, unfortunately it didn't help with this problem because an app I'd installed and given permissions to had hijacked my phone prior to me installing Avast, so it ignored the rogue app as it thought it was a legit app. Avast does have other features that are very useful to me like a Ram Booster and VPN on top of the antivirus.


Avast has always been a favorite of mine. It's safe and protects all of the information I have on my phone and computer. It's definitely a system I would recommend to anyone who wants to be safe with all of his or her information on his or her computer and/or phone.


We use the "Free" app for our phone protection and seems to work fine. I would really like to buy protection in a bundle for multiple phones and laptop which included a VPN. This does not seem to be an option for any of the companies...


The app is good in general, can protect you from viruses and other malware, boosts your phone's RAM and can save you lots of memory. The only problem is that Advanced Web Shield cannot be turned on in Android 10. At least I can't. If you could tell me it would be ideal.


As always, Avast is what Avast is. Best AV. Highly recommended.


Always used Avast for a number of years on various phones. Very happy with it


Maintains the security of my phone easily with a few clicks. I subscribed as the payment is low enough but the access to additional features helps reassure me that my phone will be virus free and cleaning unwanted files are easy and accessible. Even when I used the free service (for years) I was happy with it's performance.


It's really nice to be able to be protected and not have to worry about viruses I've tried several other antivirus apps in this one seems to work the best at least not faking me telling me that I have a virus when I don't I've had that happened in the past with all antivirus apps I've used in the past but only time will tell whether this works best I'll let you know when if it does or not. thank you.


I paid for the pro version and it worked fine for awhile but now it keeps saying it can't verify my purchase even though Google play shows it IN MY SUBSCRIPTIONS! I go to the website and it says I don't have any subscriptions yet I can somehow long in to an avast account. I've tried all the trouble shooting and guess what...no help. I've got several emails with purchase numbers as well.


Avast Antivirus exceeded my expectations on mobile devices. It doesn't slow down my phone and yet provides comprehensive protection. To me it's good value for money and a solid product with many useful features. Using a desktop version for my PC too and won't go back to anything else. This product is a job well done!


Needs to get sim hack protection and several other personal info leak protection features. I think that would be really cool and most definitely would make this a head honcho security app if they also made a feature that could identify unauthorized use based on studying how you move your fingers etc. and informed you with screen rec. Verification to catch what they did and just to verify that it was or wasn't you Incase it made a mistake.


The BEST antivirus in the market. Have it in my laptop since I bought it years ago, and haven't had one problem yet! Was so excited to be able to install a version for my cell. So happy I found it bc I know what I'm going to get; quality and protection. Thanks Avast!


I've had a lot of problems with connecting to the VPN. Sometimes when I click connect, nothing happens and the only way to fix it is to restart my phone. I feel like since I'm paying for it, it should connect when I click on it.


It is quick and give choices to scan different arwas in you phone makes it more speedy and secure.


Avast has earned my trust over the years. This is my first time on mobile. Wish I'd added it first instead of trying other popular apps. Thank you Avast for keeping your free version functional with respectful placement of ads.


My tablet was blinking and going off at any time also it was hard to turn on and most of the time my window would freeze... but since I downloaded this virus protection app I have had no problem there for I am extremely pleased with the app


Avast Antivirus app is easy to use, always protected. Thank You.


I appreciate this app and I've always had positive results while using it on all of my devices... until recently. I am concerned with the fact that I'm unable to update the virus definition on my Android phone. I keep getting the message "virus definition failed"... Is this a bug under construction?


Your program is complicated form of advertising. Ads take over the operation of the phone. This program stops my phone from working,it freezes solid . And how many programs would you have me install just to keep the phone clean? I am not happy and I will not be asking for your assistance with this matter at all
