AVG gained a strong reputation for producing free anti-virus software that is also of high quality!
The company brought that successful combo to Android with AntiVirus Security – FREE.
AVG undoubtedly believes it can have the same impact on the mobile market as it did on desktop computers since many nicknamed Android “the Windows XP of mobile.”
Along with malware protection, AVG brings a plethora of tools to boost security, manage privacy, and keep your device running smoothly, as it should.
The base app is free, but some of its components are only accessible only via a 14-day trial or paid pro version.
The main advantages of AVG AntiVirus Free are that its malware scanner can dive into text messages and search for suspicious data and malicious code.
The app packs the regular antitheft tools you would expect it to, which are essentials since loss and theft are the most prominent Android devices’ threats.
The great thing about AVG’s antitheft measures is that you can control them with simple SMS commands and a dedicated web portal.
The app reached version 6.31.0.
The newest version promises “stability and bug fixes to improve overall experience and app’s performance.”
Updating the app is very simple; just like it is the case with any other Android app. You only need to keep your device connected to a reliable network, and the operating system takes care of the rest if you have auto-updates enabled.
You can download the latest version from Google Play or a third-party app market, but we suggest to avoid doing that.
You wouldn’t want to risk getting a corrupted anti-virus apk file, would you?
