Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good security at a fair price
Wow, best thing since sliced bread! And I have a bridge to sell, in San Francisco!
Actually, I’ve used Avast for years - many years free version, but as cell phones are everywhere and my family is oblivious to all the threats it was time to invest. Avast has saved me in the past, I’ve managed to avoid re-installation of several versions of windows due to malware and key-loggers caught by Avast. Haven’t experienced an issue with the family cell phones as yet - I’m counting on Avast protecting them before we have an issue.
Always been good protection, it seems they just keep improving!
A significant irritant that drops my rating two stars.
Yes, it is a bit annoying it says my router isn’t secure enough to thwart hackers. But I can turn that notification off.
However while traveling and trying to upload photos via WiFi from my camera to my iPad I would get 3-5 photos into the transfer and everything shut down, sometimes it was before or after the first photo. When trying to transfer nearly 300 photos taken in a day having to restart the camera and the app every 1-4 times gets tiring.
Finally uninstalled Avast after fiddling with setting, coming to conclusion it was pointing to Avast breaking the connection, I uninstalled it and finished loading the remaining 160+ photos non-stop from the camera.
Why Avast doesn’t provide the user with some way of switching the protection off for certain unsecured connections (the camera’s WiFi literally requires the iPad to be within 6’)
I am willing to take my chances of nefarious characters trying to break in my camera WiFi within that sphere of 6’ in all directions.
Provide us with some ability to toggle it off on certain circumstances. Don’t make us uninstall then reinstall the app when we’ve completed dealing with an unsecured network that we control and have no ability to change its security.

I can assure you that your comments have been passed to the development team to see if there are any changes/improvements that we can make to address the issues that you have raised. Avast
Im giving a 2 star rating because I am new to this and am only taking a precautionary approach to a possible threat to my device and personal information and fully intend on giving a more accurate review and rating once the issue is resolved. I purchased this phone 2nd hand and recently received notifications of possible malware and also informed me of possible damage to my battery so I was advised to get this resolved ASAP to prevent my personal information from being compromised as well as further damage all around, was also a very sceptic on clicking on the 1st app I was sent to for the possibility of this warning being a scam so I browsed around and read up on the app description and services and I was convinced this one would work so I hope I made the right decision.

Hi, glad to see you have chosen Avast as the app to try. We hope it convinces you that it is a great app. If it does, feel free to come back and change your rating (the maximum is 5 stars), so that we see you are happy with it. Thanks, David*Avast
