I'm using the paid version, use it on everything I own. Look deeper into the app and you'll find a phone number blocker. Android users will love this! It's not as good as the PC version but at least it better than McAfee! You do need to clean cache and run virus scans to keep your phone running great! Learn how to use this App and be safer on the Internet! You still need to run Malwarebytes to do a thorough cleaning of your phone. Also dump your browser history and your phone will stay clean like a New Phone. This app also has a phone number blocker! Full Review

Keeps telling me that I need to clear some space but all it offers is a second app that exist for that. I don't need the second app seeing as I have an s8 and comes with clean master integrated with it. I seem too only be able to disable notifications altogether instead of it just stopping to offer me to clean, and I'd like to keep the rest of the options available as well as it not being turned it by android as it says Full Review

I use Avast on all my laptops and it has always been a solid antivirus software program. Also to my opinion it's the better one of the others and easy to navigate and user-friendly. So now I have them on my phones to protect them and me as well. All I have to say for $24 (12 bucks a year per phone) is well worth the money for protection. Cause Avast has caught anything wrong or going on with my laptops and resolved them before it caused harm. You can't go wrong with this amazing app for your phone, nor for you computer(s).

Even though I am leary of the permissions granted, I am partly persuaded to use AVAST based on the excellent performance in Windows 10 years ago. I really need more time to evaluate the android version. Maybe I'll go off scale and rate a 6. Recommended for the novice and advanced uses!! Full Review

Avast would have received 4-5 stars, we're it not for its horrible customer support. I submitted 2 tickets over a week ago, still no response from Avast and I am a customer with an upgraded (paid) account, that is supposed to receive "fast response from avast". Very disappointed. Avast, your app is only as good as the people that stand behind it. Full Review

When the first time I use this app, I dissapointed because there is a lot of additional app comes from within and it always popup ads on it. But the all of these experience from these up, It really also works what it is said. I already purchase avast cleanuo pro along side on this app. It works great. It keps my phone clean and tidy. Buy it, they deserve payment for it. Thanks Avast! Full Review

I use Avast for all my devices. With my old phone this app worked nicely even though it didn't require the constant icon at the top of my screen or the message in my notifications I can't get rid of. I'm glad that you're always working for me but you don't need to remind me all day. Will consider bringing this back to a 5 star rating when this is fixed in an update. That is if I don't delete if for a different app in the meantime...update...unfortunately you say you can't fix this. In a previous version it worked great without it and I didn't have to change in the settings. I have other apps that do the same thing but stay hidden. Seems like a marketing tactic which greatly dissapoints me. Full Review

Well what ever it was on program not app it's fixed. App is wonderful and so is program for computer. If you want a free antivurs this is it forget the one that comes with most phones this is number 1! This Antivirus was 1st one to support a 64bit operating system. And you probably never heard of it. Windows xp 64bit. Yes there was a 64 bit xp version but it didn't have wifi capabilities like regular xp. Anyway app wonderful same with program. Full Review

Cannot reach customer support email add not found on their website. Had to contact them via business portal and requested them to forward to home user customer support. Have. not been contacted as of yet. Now applock is not working at all. Full Review

Seems to protect ok generally. Wifi check sometimes disconnects wifi and multiple tries needed. Dont like the "cute" interface. It confuses more than helps navigate. Straight heirarchical interface is more sensible. "Cute" names for sub-services are not helpful. Please have detailed explanations of what each feature does before expecting user to try it.

I think this is one the best-must have app on your phone. Not just only about scanning for viruses but also for the Anti theft. And that's is the reason why I am writing this review. I would like to ask if it is possible for the Avast team to find a way to prevent shat down of a device when it is on lock screen. THAT would be very helpful in addition. Full Review

Very easy to use. Cleaner gives good tips and saves stuff you want during cleaning. Find it to be secure and doesn't consume or interfere with the phone the way some do. Seems to be very well organized and functions reliably. I like the fact that it's not complicated but yet secure. Full Review

Love it! Just (2/10/18) had a legit looking Google page tell me my Galaxy Note 8 has two virus that will damage/wipe out my photos, aps, et cetera, to not close that page, to click on their link to fix the issue's...and I had five minutes to do this or things would start happening. Right. Immediately ran my Avast Mobile Scan and everything is fine. Very Happy Consumer here!!! Full Review

I feel a lot safer with this app installed, however there has been a huge increase in battery usage. Woke up at 8:45 am with a full charge and watched only one 30 minute YouTube video... 3 hours later it's at 77% and it's been asleep in my pocket I wrote this review. Full Review

Avast is still among the best security apps, both at malware detection and overall features, from everything I read on the tech comparison sites (with Bitdefender being the best security suite both on PC and mobile, followed by Kaspersky.) As the FREE versions go, I would tend to prefer Avast on the phone, despite an aggravating trend towards pushing ads and keeping ever more features behind the paid wall. Ads are normal, to a point... And if you decide to pay, you might as well get the best. Full Review

Give me a reason not to unistall. I turned off all notifications possible, everything and I'm still getting some stupid notifications. I don't want to be notified that I can go "Pro" or anything, all I want is to quietly run in the background and if something malicious is found, to notify me. God dammit already, is that too much to ask? Full Review

Sick of it forgetting my license data after every update. Selecting restore purchase never works so the only way to fix is to reinstall, losing any settings. Why am I paying for pro if I find that it is downgraded to free after every update? Won't be renewing in a hurry Full Review

Flawed features! It doesn't clear the clipboard. It doesn't clear cache to regain space. I have an app that actually performs these functions. It's annoying to constantly see that my in home & work, network are 'risky ' after it's scanned. Remember my preference tnt first time. Full Review

Everything's a bit slow because I have Android but it does its job so I trust it. I'm not going to go pro for it is too pricey and the free trials are not really worth it that's why I am one star down. Full Review

I'm using the paid version just unlock my phone or give my money back! Okay, I reformatted my phone and restore the apps including Avast. Fortunately, I still have my license. Restore apps is quite a pain in the neck though. Full Review

I had Avast before, so I installed it again. I activated my anti-theft option, went out, went to set my unlock options on my phone. Suddenly my phone locks itself and the anti-theft siren goes off. So it would've been a great app if I did'nt have a whole restaurant of people watching me and talking behind their hands. Full Review

Have pixel xl. The app keeps crashing and is causing my phone to hang and heat up. Had to uninstall it. I heard great things about this app and was recommended but after using if the problem I have had are not fix the app is useless. An app that crashes constantly will not provide proper protection. Hope this gets fixed. Full Review

Been using it for a while, used to be flawless. However, recently it just keeps on crashing. This leads me to believe that avast cannot provide an adequate free service. Been waiting for an update to fix this for around a month or more, still no fix. Would recommend it, even with the ads and such, if this weren't the case. Full Review

A solid security app for Android devices. I like the tool in the notification bar for quick access to scans and tests, and the ability to lock specific apps is also a plus. It's nice that there's a RAM booster in addition to the cleanup tool, but I still have CCleaner in addition just to get the most out of my phone. I upgraded to pro after about a week because I really dislike ads, the app lock feature is only for pro, and at $11.99 for a year subscription it's nothing too steep at all. Hopefully it maintains my phone into the days to come; that uncertainty is the only reason for my 4-star review instead of 5. Full Review

Starting a month or so ago, attempts to update Avast virus definitions always fail, reporting that I have no internet connection. Yet I do, as every other app - web browser, email, the play store - work just fine. I guess the January 2018 update broke something. i suppose someday Avast will get around to fixing it. In the meantime, I guess I'll just have to use a different product. Thanks for trying! Full Review

I decided to go pro after using the unpaid version for a while. Now I can't access my WhatsApp messages, text messages notes etc. I'll enter my password but everything is blank. I'll be notify of a message but only seeing a blank screen when I try to open. I'm also unable to locate a hefty amt of pics.

Avast runs fine on my other devices but it has been a nightmare for my tablet. Consumes battery power like rushing water through a drain, crashes constantly, slows the processing down to a crawl and as of late has refused to scan the entire device despite altering settings. Unfortunately, as of writing this is the only antivirus app that is compatible with my tablet, so I'm stuck with it. I advise costumers to look up alternatives where possible. Full Review
