AVG is one of the better anti-virus programs over the last 21 years. I wish they had more thorough scans other than deep. Also, the constant "rate us" popups are annoying, even after i rated it already. I actually made my rating lower just now because after I rated it, I had popups requesting a 2nd time to rate the program. That seems suspicious that it asks so much.

*EDIT*So far so good. I pay 1.99 a month & still don't get access to everything but what I do have works and I like those features. I also like the hacker monitoring feature. Negative : I don't have their desired screen lock and I have notifications turned off (I found them annoying) and it acts like that's a big deal, telling me I have issues that need resolved, as if they were viruses. (I do have a swipe screen lock.) Otherwise its good. Happy holidays to you as well AVG.

I really like the AVG AntiVirus. I can trust it to protect my phone. The best part about AVG, besides the FREE protection, is...it doesn't constantly harrass me to do other things. Like...clean my phone, or check for other security issues with programs I can't afford. For the most part, it stays in the background and keeps me protected, without any constant interruptions. I like that!

I recently decided to download AVG and run a few manual scans since I can't afford the premium version of it, I personally don't mind having to choose to run scans myself. The only thing that the scan detects is "vulnerabilities", which I think was Web Shield being off? The other thing I've noticed is increased heat and potentially slightly quicker battery drainage while using the app. Other than that, it works, but I'm still paranoid. I get spooked easily- And how effective is the free version?

The app is free and works well. The enhanced version with all the bells and whistles has a reasonable cost. AVG has the depth of experience and a friendly interface for the novice. YOUR PHONE IS A COMPUTER it has a lot of YOUR DATA on it. Protect yourself from the nasty people out there. From viruses to theft. They have you covered from electronic warfare to physical theft or attack. ;)

Even without paying for an upgraded package, I was able to have the virus removed from my device. Being a paying customer definitely gives you more protection, but even without upgrading, your devices are still safe using AVG. After having a virus and not knowing what my next step was, AVG, i felt it was the best at solving the problem and assuring me out was cleared, and continues to keep me feeling safe.
