    I've used AVG in every device for a decade but now I can't find my subscriptions history and services I have paid for seem to have disappeared (tablet pro?) This device's app has had no updates in 7 months. The phone is getting glitchy but I have no idea if the virus scans work, even tho they say it is protected. Plus! I keep getting push notifications of "security breaches" which is just an ad to sell me another AVG product (which I'mm pretty sure i used to have installed). Not happy. Leaving.

  2. Anon 7-avatar

    Read the AVG privacy policy! If you see the data that AVG will collect on you and that they will pass on to third parties, you will probably not grant permissions. When you buy AVG you would think that your personal info was not is not the case and they will collect cookies from more than 35 software providers. This Czech company will really check you out. Do not grant permissions to use AVG services. Your cookie data will be passed on and AVG tell you this in their policy!

    The scan wifi feature has stopped working. Also when running the boost ram function nothing appears to be happening until it's run it's cycle. Please help? Also does this app take screen shots that aren't saved to the phone?

  4. Robert Valentine-avatar

    Robert Valentine


    Wifi scanning dont work, app last updated 1st February 19? Is the database still updated and is this app still supported as I see you're pushing the 2020 version now which is a monthly fee.

  5. S J-avatar

    Seems to work in many respects but i used the "photo vault" to protect some particularly precious photos of friends and family that I've lost. Today when i went to retrieve one of them, the whole vault is empty. DO NOT USE THE PHOTO VAULT FEATURE!

    Found this in my app list, wondering why it was not installed. Installed it and then remembered all the annoying messages and reminders which just keep poping up. Asking to enable features I have no interest in. And no way of stopping them.

  7. Tyler Scott-avatar

    Works as it should. Scans are very fast and gets out of the way when not being used. Their other services work very well and keeps my computer running fast and glitch free.

  9. Bo Zhang-avatar

    Used to be great, but it has not got any update in past 6 months. And it doesn't work well on the latest Android pixel 3. It says there issues found, but cannot resolve 12/3 update I read a couple of other comments, and saw quite a few had the exact same issue, but haven't seen any avg replies. Downgraded the review to 1 star due to lack of support. 12/18 update: thanks for the response. any timeline of the new fixed version coming out? the bug is really annoying, I'm about to uninstall it

  10. Wyman Sung-avatar

    Ram Boost is horrible, the default phone app is much better because I have the ability to choose what apps I want to shut down. I like the app lock feature, but the use is sloppy as some apps may need to be unlocked twice.

  11. Hans Wu-avatar

    Tons of features. Lots protection options and extra features like clearing clipboards, Wi-Fi security check, deep scan, etc. And at times bit too many. Could be a good thing or bad thing. Haven't get positive results for virus/malware. Didn't set up half of the options because I didn't need them. Have to set notifications else it'll scream at you hourly about scanning your phones, clearing your clipboard, setting up anti-theft, and etc. Overall really happy with AVG. Highly recocommend it.

  12. Shaun allen-avatar

    So far it has caught most things. One item is does not and did not catch was a picture editing tool that was able to bypass Everything and put ads up on and over all screens and programs periodically. luckily I was able to catch it mid change and found the underlying app to remove it. If it misses something as simple as the photo editing app doing this it makes me wonder what other hidden apps it does not catch and stop.

  13. JRose-avatar

    When you pay for the pro version on you home PC and you try to use it on your other devices, it wants you to pay again and will not let you sign in or make changes or upgrades. I paid for the full pro version and it is supposed to cover all my devices. Well, it doesn't. Good merely for simple task and that is about it. So, I'm just somewhat happy with my purchase, not completely happy with their promises because they've not been fulfilled. 😔

  14. N N-avatar

    My daughter put the pin incorrectly several times and phone got locked by AVG as it should but the app pin didn't work to unlock the phone. When reset the PIN still didn't work . so cant access the phone the app. The so called 24/7 customer service is none existence as two days later still no reply to my emails. Was on hold on the phone for first time 40 minutes and second time 50 minutes as well but after I explained the problem they put me on hold and hang up on me! Further more the supposed feature "camera Trap" and locate when lost function doesn't actually exist. I am actually happy this happened now as still can back up my stuff. Imagine if you lost your phone and relying on the functions of this app which doesn't exist or workt! Stay clear of this app to save you a lot of head ache and money.

  15. Ian Hague-avatar

    Not bad but the UI is rubbish. Very intrusive, nags constantly, won't leave the notification bar with a generic 'Always looking out for you' message and, more worryingly, tells me every single WiFi connection my tablet makes 'Might be risky'. Okay for me as I know they're secure but less experienced users I know might well abandon the internet for that.

  16. Joanna Woodworth-avatar

    Joanna Woodworth


    Getting REALLY fed up with this app interrupting me being able to use the Google keyboard each time it refreshes in the taskbar! Which is often. Stop making it impossible to type!

  17. Matthew Hall-avatar

    Not bad, just ok. App constantly tells you your phone is at risk, and the reason that it is at risk is because the "Advanced Web Shield" isn't enabled. Ok, so you go and enable it. But it constantly disables on it's own so you have go and manually enable it all the time, which doesn't make sense.

  18. Sidni Tant-avatar

    This used to be a great app! i pay $11.99 a yearly fee for this. as of last Monday i was hacked! all of my social medias, emails and phone number was compromised. i have spent hours changing passwords, emails and doing a complete hard factory reset on my phone to ensure i got rid of whatever hacked me! as of today this will be my last day with the app! uninstalled I'm so disgusted!

    Hi AVG...! I really don't have any issues with your software, actually I like it. BUT! I have got another AntiVirus for my phone now which I got free with my new laptop... And when I say free I mean full software just free of charge. Now I've been trying to delete AVG on my mobile for 2 hours stopping all the apps permissions and accessibility and what not, and when I go to uninstall it magically rewrite it self exactly where it was not letting me delete it. EXTREMELY ANOYING 😡😡😡PLEASE DELETE

  20. John Portch-avatar

    Excellent app. Does everything you need to keep your mobile working at peak performance. Far better than its closest rivals. Five star rating *****

  21. Andy Smith-avatar

    The best security app ever. Never fails to impress, location is great for locating stolen or lost mobiles. Locks phone dead if sim removed, and factory wipe if needed. 10 / 10 💂‍♂️😍

  22. Landon-avatar

    I think this is the first app I have ever actually written a review for, but I have to because I have never been so annoyed by an app.... it works fine BUT... there is always, always, ALWAYS a notification from this app. CONSTANT notifications about other services it has, nothing even important, I cant believe I pay for this and I have to receive so many notifications. Most annoying app I have ever had.

  23. A Google user-avatar

    A fantastic app, but doesn't have the ability to whitelist apps running in the background. So every time you boost your phone's performance with the AVG app or widget, key background apps and processes are closed and don't work again until they're manually reopened. Very frustrating.

  24. RaceOrBust-avatar

    Good app, been using it for years now, however..... you used to pay your subscription and you got everything, now you get the basic antivirus and everything else is an add on which you have to pay extra for! This tarnished what would otherwise be a very good app.

  25. Brian Sorli-avatar

    Excellent product that ive used for years. Only problems relate to WiFi security and always reporting my network as unsafe. AVG security checks repoets no problems and then in a few weeks says i have a problem again. What has changed in the last week on my LAN? Would also like more Malware check integration, but nothing like that yet offered by AVG and rely on Malwarebytes instead. Keep up the great work...

  26. LVOV-avatar

    Wi-Fi Security does not work properly on Oneplus 6t running Android 10.

  27. Darrell Tonks-avatar

    Issue following update 4/2/2019. I now have a permanent sticky notification, I'm unable to clear stating "AVG is running".. I know it is I installed it ! I can only clear this notification by disabling all sticky notifications for AVG from within the device notification settings. All I need to know is; 1) If there's an issue and it's not working 2) It's undertaking an activity ie. scanning or updating 3) The app requires my attention Come on AVG, I never had this issue before the update !!

  28. Mason Bohm-avatar

    Been using this app for almost 7yrs, I've never had any virus or malicious apps gets passed AVG. I paid for the pro version when I first got it years ago and I've never had to pay anything else and it has been well worth the money to know that my phone is protected ! I've never had to install any other anti-virus and wouldn't have ever feel the need as long as this app keeps getting updated.

  29. Stephen Ivanovich-avatar

    OMG this update has taken over my notification light, its now blinks away and you can't disable it without stopping all your notifications from all your apps. Plus you now have to download a new app to clean your junk files as the original junk file cleaner built in your antivirus doesn't work anymore. so its now a two-step app process, to clean your junk files. And now android is warning me that AVG is draining my battery. its draining at a rate of one percent every 5 minutes.

  30. Carol Carter-avatar

    I've used AVG for years. I was advised by a close friend that this was the best to use and was free. Since then I have upgraded computers and added phones and new use the paid for app which is a great price for all the protection the app offers. Keep up the good work AVG. Thanks

  31. Mike Russell-avatar

    ive have far fewer issues since downloading this app. The anti theft or emergency beacon function works just as described...i accidentally activated the emergency beacon and it took several pics and sent them along with both a pre existing message id put in and my current location on google maps to the emergency contacts id listed so good job guys

  32. John Evans-avatar

    Provides a variety of handy tools. Seems to work well, but as a future upgrade perhaps it can do multiple tasks with a single "go" command. Make that a customizable list so each user can choose what tasks make sense for them. Make the "go" button a screen widget.

  33. Jon Pennycook-avatar

    The new version has added even more pointless notifications, like a puppy that wants everyone to take notice of it. A good security program should just work, without having to have popups all the time saying that it's "looking out for you"

  34. A Google user-avatar

    Uninstalled. Don't care if android forces notification. Having permanent notification is an intrusion that you should have solved. Keep the payment, as I will go find app that doesn't intrude and pay them 100 times more. Please be don't bother responding with your weak excuses either. Too long you have been pushing and by now you should see people don't appreciate that.

  35. Andy Jones-avatar

    I have a paid subscription for this app on Android and Windows. Even so, I'm constantly badgered by pop up adds from AVG pushing additional services. These adds even take priority over other running apps and interrupting their operation on both platforms. AVG that should be classed as Malware!

  36. Adnan Aseeri-avatar

    For starts the app is bugged so its technically useless i am very disappointed i used to use Kaspersky which was excellent but a friend of mine recommended this to me so i subscribed but only to find that its not working will i already informed customer service but they told me it will be fixed soon so its been 2 weeks now and nothing i am gone keep the app installed for another week hope it will be fixed other than that i will unsubscribe and never think of downloading again

    I absolutely love the security AVG has provided me, for the last few years ive had it on almost every smartphone I've owned. But lately I've been getting constant crash messages of it failing. I'm gonna try reinstalling it and hope 8t fixes my issue.

    really poor app. waste of money. i did expected it will work well. app locking is ridiculous. many loop holes. when it showing app locked by going through recents accessable to give input. by following anyone can easily eliminate this app from administrator. then i can uninstall the app. do fix else don't sell for money. you have to shy for producing like this garbage app.

    Updated Anti-virus is terrible I put it to blocks (filters) too many calls it filters many calls I don't know who all it has filtered out. It filtered out my Dr's office who was calling through approved # but it also blocked my son who called from his own starred number, he left a voice mail with an important message I almost missed before I went to a meeting. Thanks to AVG!! My son phone is a normal phone not going through a switchboard like my Dr's office.

    A Solid performance from AVG, I have been using this for my pc and phone for years because it has always been reliable, for me anyway, and to be honest I don't know if I could ever switch to another Internet security software since this does just the job .

  41. Jagstang1981-avatar

    So far so good. I like the control this software gives you over the other apps and the feeling of security over my personal information. Highly recommend for those wanting a secure control panel for your phone or tablet.

    I've had a few months to make up my mind. This is no doubt a good scan. The boost do work. Safe cleans don't mess with my games. Also got the pc free version with the bought VPN. Very satisfied.

    I have paid for the pro version and the men ultimate version yet when I try to use features on my pc they have no record of my payments or subscriptions. If I lose my phone there is no way locate phone....customer service just insist I have no product.

    Currently on a Pixel 3 and it tells me I have 1 threat. I click through and it gives me a red screen but no details. After poking around the red screen it asked to uninstall something called retail mode, which it can't seem to uninstall, not does anything show up in Android settings matching that name for me to manually uninstall.

    Hi, I'm using Huawei mate 20 Pro and I'm having problem. Why my phone screen turn black(whole screen turn blank) when I want to unlock my apps that are active by app lock program? Not just this... it also turn black when there is an alert msg after scanned. Pls advice.

  46. Matthew SEET-avatar

    The fingerprint sensor does not work intermittent when trying to unlock the screen from sleep mode.

  47. Steve G-avatar

    always trying to cross sell products which is annoying. I want my anti-virus software to sit in the background until needed and just get on with daily tasks unless something serious happens. That said it does what it says on the tin!

  48. Jen R-avatar

    Very user-friendly and efficient. I've had a very clean and safe phone thanks to AVG

  49. DD 8-avatar

    I am subscribed to the pro internet security, the cleaner, and the VPN. When I did this previously I had access to install the pc tools and security on my laptop. Now my account online doesn't show any purchases and I'm unable to download the pc stuff.

    I've had this app on several phones over the years and it's currently on a Galaxy S6 Active. After a software update from Samsung, a few months ago, the AVG app crashes up to 8 times a day and I don't know what would be making it do that.

  51. Cym Mitch-avatar

    been using this since the beginning and i have loved and trusted it enough to get the pro. but now it is crashing multiple times a day and I don't know if it is still protecting me. there has been no updating since May. is this still viable? is it still supported?

    Still my go-to security software. I've been using AVG many years and it has consistently proven to be a most effective and inexpensive means of avoiding many of the worst things the Internet has to offer. Keep up the good work AVG!

    I just uninstalled this on my XiaoMi RedMi 6. I cannot activate the anti-theft and always screen freeze when I try to scroll down the menu to see settings.

  54. Kaivan Askari-avatar

    I have 3 issues after the scan but I can't resolve them. It's just a red screen it doesn't allow me to do anything. It's just a endless loop. Running pixel XL with Android p

  55. Tracy Hobbs-avatar

    Very happy with AVG. Years of trusted secure stability that I can count on. AVG continues to lead the anti virus world on pc and smartphone. I put my trust in them and know my private information is safe.

  56. A Google user-avatar

    Some features are already built in in Android. The notifications don't go away after clicking them since several months back. I still haven't been able to track my phone but that is built in my Samsung.

    My phone stopped ringing and generally was not working optimally. Turned out my phone was infected. The AVG antivirus fixed the issues. Total phone functionality has improved significantly.

  58. Get Fit 2018-avatar

    Excellent app. User friendly and always does what it is supposed to do.

  59. James Fletcher-avatar

    Anytime i scan for threats, and theres issues. doesnt give me a choice to do anything about it, just to re-scan. no, not installing again. and don't recommend others do either

  60. A Google user-avatar

    Been my goto security app for years now. I use the paid version, it's well worth the few quid. Simple, safe and secure. What more do you need. I recommend AVG Pro Android Security to everyone. Use it!!!!

  61. Michael Garrett-avatar

    "Best Antivirus App On Google Play!" It ignores private and fraudulent calls, it has an app lock feature, it cleans and protects 24/7, and alot more! I personally recommend AVG Pro Antivirus for Android and IOS!

  62. Bob Rix-avatar

    Been using AVG for many many years on various PCs and more recently phones and tablets. Absolutely brilliant, easy to use, fast and efficient product you can trust. The best there is!

  63. H Wms-avatar

    Did not detect Adware.ModiDash.NC malware, which was detected after installing Malwarebytes. Also, after making the onetime payment, is there some reason this app no longer shows up in my library so it can be reinstalled if necessary?

  64. Salah Boulfoul-avatar

    No updates like the subscription version, not working well with Android 10, no WiFi scan, no progress of tast killing.

  65. A Google user-avatar

    Why has the sms anti theft feature been removed ? This was one of the main reasons for purchasing this app, that with the fact there was no update for android 9 for over 4 months on my handset means I'd like a refund, please advise how to go about this

  66. A Google user-avatar

    Fantastic antivirus! I'm disappointed I had never been made aware of it long ago! I was so impressed I even bought the pro version. You will not regret if.

  67. Karl Dixon-avatar

    For me this has been standard issue on all android devices for a couple of years. Great features, great interface. Wouldnt be without it.

  68. RED -HOOD-avatar

    In my handphone problem now..why the browser open up automatically and send virus..I choose setting and stop allow installation at unknown resources..then,same time the virus come again and again..can u update antivirus give high quality and security..and cleanup deep virus

  69. Paul Laters-avatar

    I use this antivirus as it works and does what it says it does. the extra addons are a little annoying especially after the original purchase but as a av avg does work. would be a 5 star if it wasnt for the addons.

  70. John Mearns-avatar

    Bought this app to stop constant pop ups on my Samsung S6 edge phone telling me that my phone has been invaded by a virus despite getting the paid version I'm still getting the same pop up messages it seems your app has made no difference whatsoever ?

  71. A Google user-avatar

    I already had a in date subscription with avast but decided to change to the paid version of avg pro as I presumed they were different. In fact avast and avg are exactly the same. I feel misled.

  72. Anna Stinson-avatar

    I have used it for at least 10 years! I have downloaded on every phone I have owned! It always catches anything that could harm my phone or steal my information.

  73. Alex Seymour-avatar

    Seems to say it does things as far as antivirus and task killer. The money is worth the app and settings lock, locate Device, Anti theft system and storage cleaner is ok. Well worth the price as it's on all my devices.

    Scans and tells me there are two security risks but doesnt give me an option to deal with them other than to rescan. Didn't find trojan that other antivirus found on first try.

  75. Andy Tsai-avatar

    rubbish, avg is getting more annoying with asking for more money and features. The app scans showing 3 threats found but doesn't display the threats. this is the 3rd time that's occurred for me. not happy!

  76. George Ilovski-avatar

    Good app but whenever I run a scan it won't let me ignore risks found , after the scan is completed it will show risks for a few seconds and disappears . Please fix it

  77. Robbie Fordyce-avatar

    I have no idea if it's working, but the notifications are reasonable without being excessive, and I haven't had any security issues that I'm aware of (not that I had them before)

  78. A Google user-avatar

    After Download this App whenever I open an App,it shows black screen after 10 to 90 seconds ,app opens. My phone's app is not open immediately, it takes 10 to 90 seconds plz improve or suggest me

  79. fazzel ont-avatar

    everything used to be great. now antivirus portal does not work. customer service keeps telling me they are sending my request to higher priority but never emailed me. needs some serious work before i use avg again..... if i use it again....

    Good app. But does not allow me to update virus definitions on my Android 7.0. Keeps telling me to check my internet connection, but internet connection is fine.

    so far so good. this app secures my mobile at the same time doesn't impact on my performance. the premium version is free of disturbances which is the most amazing thing in this product.

  83. marc walton-avatar

    Simple and cost effective security. Love the extra security feature AppLocking. Web control find device is a useful tool. Well worth purchasing.

  84. Jay Effelle-avatar

    I like the avast antivirus pro android version that I paid for and have been using it seems to cover most of the bases well. But IF anything changes you will hear it first HERE.!

  85. Nik Bardsley-avatar

    Worked fine for years but has all of a sudden removed the option to disable the permanent notification. If this can't be disabled anymore then I'll be uninstalling. Incredibly intrusive.

  86. Bill Hughes-avatar

    after a scan, AVG identifies a risk;. however with the latest Android update, AVG doesnot identify the risk nor allow you to fix or forget it on my original Google Pixel phone.

  87. Mike Morley-avatar

    My Kaspersky licence ended so thought come back to this only to find the updates are behind the free version. When login to account it won't add device and links you to get the free version

  88. Roy Greene-avatar

    I purchased this app and I have no regrets at all. It does all it says and more! I would recommend it for everyone looking for great security.

  89. David Harvey-avatar

    Neat little app works flawlessly in the background, but can be called upon for an immediate scan if you feel there's a need.

  90. steven pile-avatar

    I haven't used AVG since after the 1st install... then stopped using it, I've just found out they have been taking £6.99 every year since July 2016 !! WT* !!!!

  91. Jai D-avatar

    AVG is by far the best antivirus, app manager, etc. I've used it for years and will continue. Works on all my devices.

  92. Just Me-avatar

    Great service, the free option has a number of helpful security features. Easy to use, highly recommended.

  93. thejas sridhar-avatar

    why is there a permanent notification?? I do not want any notification showing, I like it to be minimalist. But due to the irritating permanent notification it is not so. P.S. very good antivirus

  94. Philip Elvidge-avatar

    I have had this app for quite some time, it has protected my phones I believe very well for a reasonable price. Excellent antivirus protection for a great price.

  95. Sachin Gopal-avatar

    Seems it finds risks but you cannot see or clean it. Tried all options including clearing cache, giving the app admin rights. Saw users complaining in avg forum sometime back, but no fix yet

  96. Just Passing Through-avatar

    Just Passing Through


    Brilliant App that does everything it promises. It is simple to set up easy to use and secures my devices.

  97. Anonymous-avatar

    only giving three stars due to avg cleaner app should be a one time (installment/payment) not a yearly or monthly subscription fee, other than that the security apps works well

  98. James Orr-avatar

    Good app. However the notifications appearing, drivers me up the wall! I still recommend the app as it does what it claims!

  99. Craig Dock-avatar

    awesome awesome awesome app I always give u guys 5 u never let me down thank u..seriously try this one out it's awesome..I've Been using avg for a while never one problem not even a update issue.ill never stop using is the best by far...

  100. A Google user-avatar

    Can't get it to show in Google's "Family Library" so have now purchased it twice. Contacted AVG support who didn't seem interested and instead referred me straight back to Google.
