Avast Mobile Security Redditl


With the choice of a free ad-supported version as well as upgraded mobile security apps, Avast has something for everyone. It offers good malware protection and very low overhead scanning but can be slow to scan a phone. While Bitdefender Mobile Security offers better protection, Avast Mobile Security has a place for those who are also looking for a VPN in addition to a mobile antivirus.


In 2014, CVC Capital bought an interest in Avast for an undisclosed sum. The purchase valued Avast at $1 billion.[18][19] Later that year, Avast acquired mobile app developer Inmite in order to build Avast's mobile apps.[20] Additionally, in 2014 Avast's online support forum was compromised, exposing 400,000 names, passwords and email addresses.[21][22] By 2015, Avast had the largest share of the market for antivirus software.[15] In July 2016, Avast reached an agreement to buy AVG for $1.3 billion.[23] AVG was a large IT security company that sold software for desktops and mobile devices.[24] In July 2017, Avast acquired UK-based Piriform for an undisclosed sum. Piriform was the developer of CCleaner.[25] Shortly afterwards it was disclosed that someone may have created a malicious version of CCleaner with a backdoor for hackers.[26] Avast had its IPO on the London Stock Exchange in May 2018, which valued it at 2.4bn and was one of the UK's biggest technology listings.[27]


Avast develops and markets business and consumer IT security products for servers, desktops, and mobile devices.[36] The company sells both the Avast product line and the acquired AVG-branded products.[37] As of late 2017, the company had merged the AVG and Avast business product lines and were working to integrate the corporate departments from both companies.[38] Additionally, Avast has developed utility software products to improve battery life on mobile devices, cleanup unnecessary files on a hard drive, find secure wireless networks[39] or create a VPN connection to the internet.[40]


Avast and AVG consumer security software are sold on a freemium model, where basic security features are free, but more advanced features require purchasing a premium version.[37] The free version is also supported by ads.[41] Additionally, all Avast users provide data about their PC or mobile device to Avast, which is used to identify new security threats.[8] Antivirus scanning, browser cleanup, a secure browser, password management, and network security features are provided for free, while firewall, anti-spam, and online banking features have to be purchased.[42][43] According to PC Pro, the software does not "nag" users about upgrading.[40][42] About 3% of Avast's users pay for a premium version (10% in the US).[8]


The Avast antivirus product for business users received 4 out of 5 by TechRadar in 2017.[50] The review said that the software had good features, protection, configuration and an "excellent interface", but it took up a lot of hard disk space and did not cover mobile devices.[50] According to Tom's Guide, the mobile version is inexpensive and packed with features. PC Magazine said that the mobile version "has almost all the security features you could want."[51] 1e1e36bf2d
