I have purchased AVG Ultimate because it states that you can then download Pro versions for your anti virus and cleaner for free for Andriod devices. It is true but could not be helped by the chat room. Was sent an email which solved the problem Full Review

I downloaded your app to do a virus scan because when I click on my Google symbol, I get a message saying that there is a virus on my phone and it's going to crash soon. I did the scan with AVG and it did not help the situation any and did not pick up the virus or the scammer or whatever they are. Full Review

Quite useful. I did pay to upgrade. Have found my phone slower and the keyboard sticky/and lagging since downloading though? I am persisting for now incase it's unrelated. I like how it reminds me to clear my clipboard of personal data. Though why that's a threat I don't know if I'm protected? A question for someone more knowledgeable than me! Full Review

AVG is a great app overall and is a full-featured comprehensive software package. To the best of my knowledge, it has always found threats that were posed to my Android and dealt with them accordingly. The software is very user-friendly, straightforward, and effective. The asking price for the paid version is also reasonable. Full Review

Rubbish, doesn't treat or remove any threats. Just comes up with a message some threats found and then prompts you to upgrade. Also flooding with ads. Just be honest and don't advertise it as an antivirus, as it's just a useless demo. Waste of time Full Review

Upgraded to pro some time back, on the antivirus page i don't have the 4 options underneath the scan option, there is nothing there.. Also the pull down notification of the 4 options (wifi, scan, boost, clean junk) has also disappeared.. Not impressed at all, seriously thinking of deleting for a different anti virus app. Full Review

Long time user. App has generally good function and I have been happy with it but recent updates have added incessant up-selling and lock screen notifications that can't be blocked. Will probably remove and install a different antivirus app. Full Review

I usually dread having to contact Customer because it is usually not a pleasant experience. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. They were very pleasant, very patient and I have nothing but positive things to say. I used AVG many years ago and they have come a looong way since then in a very positive way. Thanks AVG...You have a loyal customer here!!

•VERY Adequate• When taking into account its diverse security and data management abilities along with the nearly-perpetually pervasive ads many find the attributes balanced.

My phone was bogging down and and freezing up. The battery was braining fast and it died when I was driving in rush hour traffic.... Not good. I downloaded this app and it fixed my phone immediately. It was quick and simple and NO ADS! I'm very pleased. Full Review

It's good. Can't complain but it seems like it's slowed down just a bit since I installed the free download. I want the full subscription but it's too expensive for me. But then I'm on a limited income too so it may not be to high for others. But it's not a bad app in all. I would recommend it. Thank you Full Review

I use avg and avast on different devices.. Not much different between the 2 and so can't decide which is the better one.... I only have the free version and haven't upgraded yet as don't know if actually worth it but at the mo it does the job so happy enough Full Review

 Helmer Van der Heide

All pretty fine. Has some nice tool wifi speed check and boosting. But most annoying is, that even in the pro version it keeps you telling to buy more (like doing a clean up for junk, but only cleaning half of it, trying you to sell you more apps from avg): I paid not to get advertisement!

When an app is approved by Microsoft, you can't go wrong. Now, Google on the other hand is not always trustworthy. Google Is Very Big Brother!! And it takes an act of Congress to get customer services with them and IF you actually get to speak to a REAL service tech, they are less than friendly or helpful. Thank the Gods that Google will soon not be able to monopolize the browser and app technology! Brand NEW BROWSERS are in the works now! : ) Full Review

I use avg on all of my computers and trust in its ability to protect me from online virus and malware attacks. However, the android app on my phone crashes randomly, several times each day. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app makes no difference ... Some work on operational stability is needed. Full Review

Uninstalled! I installed this app because I wanna get rid of the virus that cause some pop up ads that redirect me to website. I thought this app could fix my problem but I guess I was wrong. It says nothing's wrong with my phone when clearly the pop up ads still popping up, here and there. I'm so disappointed. Full Review

The AVG ( FREE) that I use is abiquate for most problems. It always reminds me to search and clean. It is a really great app that is free. Someday, maybe I can afford the paid app on this tablet. I have the paid app on my laptop. It does much more than the free app. That is to be expected. Full Review

It's OK but too many notifications nowadays on screen so is starting to become annoying. Prompting charge messages, kill apps, clean, check WiFi etc ... A lot more notifications recently. If it gets more annoying than I will look for another option. Let the user control and act when they want to and just remind them periodically i.e. twice weekly. Obviously alert on more critical virus issues immediately. Thanks. Full Review

I'm using the pro version as the license came with my PC's AVG subscription. It does all the usual virus and spam checks and also includes lots of extras such as testing your wifi security and freeing up wasted memory. All good. I've dropped one star as the feature for killing running apps doesn't let you choose which ones to kill. In my case it killed my 3rd party keyboard app. Overall though it is pretty good. Full Review

Overall like it but it requires more settings to allow for scheduling scans and checks instead of popping up an annoying notification every 5 minutes. Also seems to bog down my phone and I have recently cleared it out to factory settings so I know it's not a hardware issue. Full Review

My app crashes at least 8-12 times per day. What exactly am I paying for? It crashes so often, I wonder if I'm actually being protected by the antivirus. I uninstalled and reinstalled and it still happens. I guess uninstallation of the app and cancellation of my subscription is imminent. *edit*Thanks for the response, Tereza. I'll give that a shot. My app crashed 3 times today since I wrote that review. I've already done the uninstall/reinstall dance, so here's hoping clearing the cache/data helps. Thanks! Full Review

I'm not sure what the subscription model would look like. I uninstalled while on my free trial... The sheer number of ads and pop ups during the trial is disgusting. Maybe show me what a paid version looks like for an actual "free trial" and then if I choose the free version introduce ads. But anti virus being this over the top in your face ad friendly and spam feeling is gross. I am trying to find a decent anti virus app. Not sure one exists that is not just a bloated excuse for adware. Brutal. Had to Google how to deactivate it so I could uninstall. Removed another star.

I've a used AVG since they first came out on one of my first computers and have been hooked ever since. Now since all these smart phones that have come out it was a no brainier to put AVG on my phone and tablet as well the free option has everything I needed and more. It even has a sck It's a very intuative product. Just set it up and it does the rest.Enjoy you won't regret it... Full Review

Google automatically took out $19.99 for the yearly subscription but AVG is telling me my subscription is cancelled. Tried getting a refund from Google since I'm being charged for something I can't even use and was sent the automated message of it doesn't meet their policies for giving a refund. so if I'm being charged for a product that I can't even use I wonder what does constitute a refund from them? free version worked well which is why I got the yearly subscription last year. pay for it at your own risk is my advice Full Review

I've had this app since I bought my tablet several years ago. I am not on pro. I love it, it tells me when I have no more room for my other apps to update, reminds me to check on things I may not realize could be problems and has brought up potential problems with apps I have. I now clean out my tablet often just because I have the app which gives me more room in my tablet. It also makes me feel secure that I have something to watch out for those crazy no see ums that I know nothing about. I'm very happy with it. I only get ads when I'm actually using some part of it on my own. They're not just popping up on my tablet for no reason. Full Review

I'm out of work so the free stuff helps me feel better about going online. Thank you for this option! I have had the full version for a year two times in the last 9 years. It was great! So much has been added since the last time I could afford it! I am always telling people to get AVG on all their devices! Full Review

This is corporate program supcription ransomware. 2 and a half years paid subscription and now no license found. Have done all as instructed by AVG support still nothing. Screw this company, not worth any more time trying to fix what they broke, I am not their employee, they don't pay me to troubleshoot etc. Trust me it is NOT user error or conflicts. The dam program will not find the license that I paid for, yes, even after reinstalling. Ransomware by AVG. Enough said. I get a response from them and they still want me to use my time to fix their product AGAIN. Talked with Google too, same thing, waste my time fixing their clients mistakes. Just give me my license back, get rid of the ads, you already have been paid. Full Review
