New version is buggy
by Citygirl1102 on 2020/08/13 18:01
For some reason, my VPN doesn’t stay on! Keeps turning itself off. Not sure what the issue is.
VPN keeps disconnecting
by Shellyb1221 on 2020/08/13 03:26
Up until about a week or so ago, it worked fine. Now the VPN keeps turning off. I have to keep checking it everytime I turn my phone on or even switch between apps. Very irritating. This is not free.
VPN Turns Off
by louie925 on 2020/08/12 06:25
I have noticed after only a few months of owning a subscription, Avast usually turns off VPN. I have read the troubleshooting tips. I have downloaded the latest version. I have deleted and re down loaded the app. Every time I open the app the VPN switch is off. I manually turn it on then close the app and upon reopening the VPN is disabled.
Notice yesterday after the update is crashing a lot
by NORTHERN BLACK RAVEN on 2020/08/11 14:49
I took an update on an Apple iPad Pro and it made things worse it keeps turning off before I took the update I didn’t seem to have this problem
I think should be added
by do anyone else agree with me on 2020/08/11 11:46
Can you make it free longer so we can trust you more and make it lest money on pc and make some adds about what you can do and probably make proof it will drag more attention and it will be money or if it fails for the week or two make one or two ads but I am just a kid on my dad phone so what can I do bye

Hi
2nd Review
by masked23 on 2020/08/06 23:11
I purchased the premium version of this for my iPad. I also added it to my iPhone. I deleted the apps and canceled my subscription as I was uncomfortable with an IP address being shown on app. Message from Apple said I could reinstall the app as there was time left on my original subscription. I did reinstall the app and reactivated a subscription renewal. It renews next March. The app on my iPad and iPhone will not save the vpn activation. I have to reactivate each time for both devices. I’ve called Avast support twice and since they can’t find an account for me since my purchase was through the App Store they refused to help on the issue I’m having. I am frustrated.
Sad
by unhappysadmad on 2020/08/06 18:00
They say it’s free but u have to buy the premium then it’s not free...
Customer Service??
by rd1055 on 2020/08/05 16:38
I have been using this PAID app for a couple of months and really have no way of knowing if it actually works. It keeps turning off the web protection by itself and if you try to submit a problem after putting in your email address and issue the there is NO way of getting to the submit button. I’m really having doubts about this app. Maybe I can get a response from this review.
No BS

Can’t Pause since Recent Update
by Maestrofred on 2020/08/01 21:13
Since the last update a few days ago I can’t pause the VPN - it turns itself back on immediately on both my iPhone and my iPad.
Subscribed and paid for 14-free 1 year paid Avast Security & Privacy
by Blu43 on 2020/08/01 15:54
Actually got this, Avast Security & Privacy AND Avast SecureLine VPN Proxy. My problem is with Security & Privacy. First: Hope I don’t get redundant overlapping coverage which degrades actual performance. On Security & privacy, I opened app to blue screen and Orsnge dot /Avast symbol center page and nothing else. Hasn’t offered sign on or account, just this dot center page. Called goggle phone number - not (or no longer)active?? I guess I need unsubscribe to try to end my pain!

Its Alright But...
by itsjoseph24 on 2020/07/30 01:20
Its a good app at the start but like after a year your phone tends to get interrupted by the VPN. It happened to me recently. Just one random night my phone completely just stopped working I couldn’t watch any videos on my social or use my streaming apps or anything. I thought my phone bill was due but it wasn’t! I had to go to my phone company and they said it was my VPN..

Updated: Unreliable & Photo Vault Fails
by DannyPA107 on 2020/07/20 14:51
This app is positively terrible. It frequently disrupts internet connection, the VPN profile often fails, and the photo vault is garbage. Even after wasting $19.99 for the yearly subscription this thing still prompts me to “upgrade” in order to use the photo vault. When I confirm the purchase, it still fails to work. The vault also forces you to go back to the beginning of your camera roll to try and select anything and doesn’t work with albums, etc. I’ve reached out to support several times and have been told there is no resolution to the photo vault issue. They’ve more or less blown off my other concerns saying the development team will be notified. At this point I wish I’d never spent the money on this thing.
Avast for the broke
by Luckydog77 on 2020/07/19 22:53
Avast has a great boot time scan though free for pc. And minimal ads.
VPN
by Dicaprio78 on 2020/07/19 13:30
My only complaint is that the VPN is constant and interferes with connections and some gaming apps; I wish the VPN activation was more versatile. I turned the VPN off on both the app and my IPhone and it still remained on. Other that the app is amazing.
Ok
by towman716 on 2020/07/19 02:53
Ok
Should I Even Have This App?
by OMG6713 on 2020/07/18 18:18
Note: Before I start, I caution anyone using the app to click on the VPN and turn off auto-connect. It hasn’t asked me to allow auto-connection which proved to be suspicious on its own. It appears ever since I downloaded this app, strange things have been happening on my phone. Random gibberish being typed, and sent, when I’m not even laying a finger on my keyboard yet about to type to someone I know. Not to mention the “glitching,” as my phone jumps from up to down, the message being cut in half as it seemingly taps onto the middle of my text and adding letters, again when I’m not even typing. As well as multiple times throughout this message I’ve had to copy and paste as it keeps messing with my message and cutting off it off entirely. My personal opinion? Delete this app if it’s giving you the same issues something shady is going on and it can cost you. I can’t type anymore with it, it’s purposely messing me up. For all I know this app could have been corrupted or who knows what. What I do know is that this app is not all that it seems, maybe it even trying to gather all my data. I got this app because I found out on pc that it was available on phone, so I got it. Seems like it wasn’t the best action to take as something like this has never happened to me, that is, of course, until I downloaded this app on my phone. As for why I have it at five stars? Not because I like it, in fact this experience has made me become distrustful of Avast, especially on phones and tablets. I did it so that whoever has this app knows, or I guess doesn’t know but will now, what the possible dangers could be with it installed.

Great! But the VPN…
by Gino X Hyena on 2020/06/20 15:36
The only thing I suggest is that the app should give you the choice to turn on VPN. When I don’t have it on, I keep getting notifications saying I have “1 unresolved issue.” I have slow internet speed so I’d rather keep it off. Everything else is good security-wise. If VPNs don’t bother you, get the app.

Malfunctioned App
by Nuclearcat666 on 2020/06/15 22:07
When I downloaded the app it worked for about 2 weeks then malfunctioned today. Today it kept saying that there was malicious websites and kept blocking them. The problem was that these “malicious” websites were parts of The Apple App Store, Reddit, Etc... For Example Whenever I Open The Apple App Store it loads for a few seconds then it would report about 8 of the links involving the App Store then crash. These links are the very same links that enable the App Store to even load. Meaning that it would block Entire Apps Themselves. It’s unfortunate that I had to delete the app but it was mandatory or else my phone would be rendered essentially useless. After the deletion everything ran fine again Something strange was that whenever I deleted any other app it only took around 10 seconds. However this app took around 3 minutes which was rather suspicious. Anyways in my opinion I wouldn’t trust this app and will not download it again. Have a great day,

Absolute trash!
by GLW8804 on 2020/05/30 16:31
Downloaded the app and it slowed down my WiFi speeds tremendously. Deleted the app and every since my WiFi and Bluetooth will not work at all. I know it still has something to do with this app because when I try to allow to turn on my personal hotspot my password changes every time and it never did that before downloading this app. DO NOT INSTALL THIS VPN ON YOUR PHONE!!!!!
Saved me

Didn’t help at all
by lost1000000 on 2020/05/21 04:17
Wish I had looked at reviews before buying. It just didn’t work. Only locked me out of the few things I could get into. I just had to restart my iPad from the beginning to get it to work.
Meh...
by Bobbywinters on 2020/05/21 01:56
I don’t really have any way of knowing that the app is actually working. It isn’t alerting me to obvious spam. AND.. when I get emails with what I know are malicious attachments (zip files, etc) it does not flag them. Not even sure it’s protecting anything. WORST is the VPN feature, which constantly bogs down and will not allow me to connect to the network. Pretty disappointing. My advice is don’t waste your money. I did purchase Avast for my MacBook and I’m happy with that. Just expected this app to work the same way, and unfortunately it does not.
DOES NOT WORK ON PUBLIC WIFI
by JCwired on 2020/05/15 03:03
Nice to see a business model that takes your money and does not work on a public WiFi system as the updates DO NOT WORK, RELOADING THE SOFTWARE APP DOES NOT WORK. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PATHETIC WASTE OF MONEY FROM A COMPANY THAT REFERS TO CUSTOMERS AS A WASTE OF TIME. FURTHERMORE THEIR BUSINESS MODEL OF CHARGING FOR SIMPLE TROUBLE SHOOTING IS BS.

by graywolf007 on 2020/05/12 00:42
I have used Avast for many years. I have tried others and found them either ‘user unfriendly’, or ‘OOPS! Missed a virus’. I would then go back to Avast, reinstall, and watch it quarantine the missed viruses.

Unreliable
by jo niles on 2020/05/07 05:38
When this works, it works well. But every few days it locks up with the VPN off while yet saying it’s on. At that point it’s impossible to switch the VPN on again without uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Eventually, however, even doing this didn’t work, so I uninstalled it for the last time. The app has potential. But they need to spend more time on design and testing instead of on gimmicky screens. As it stands, this app reflects badly on Avast’s reputation. And that’s a shame.
Security &Privacy app Annoying
by RedSpin on 2020/04/30 17:05
It works ok on my laptop and I’ve had a paid subscription for a while. Now I am unable to turn it off when I want to watch cable programs on my iPad as cable subscription won’t connect while VPN is on. Since I have a paid subscription I uninstalled and downloaded the VPN Proxy app which seems to work ok since I can turn it off when necessary. Unnecessarily confusing.
Slows my iPad
by jytihftd on 2020/04/29 21:23
Just added Avast for Mac. Terrible. Slows my iPad Pro. The VPN causes freezing and dropped sites. Next to useless for iPhone or iPad.

Having trouble (upgrading)
by demurielhanari on 2020/04/23 03:02
Having trouble (upgrading) inputting my license CODE so I can upgrade!!!!!! I typed my subscription code IN but it keeps saying failed!!!! Wat up AVAST??????? My subscription says I can use the CODE (VPN) on more than 1 device!!!! SOooooooooo wat give avast???????H
I can`t authenticate with the purchased code.
by SayGood :) on 2020/04/22 16:01
I purchased Avast Ultimate subscription code. I entered the Avast Code into the Apple Avast Security App, but it was not authenticated. Because has an error in the Avast Security App itself. Click "already purchased the code" - Square box for entering code - In the blank, the "OK" button was activated, but once the code was entered, the "OK" button was disabled. So I was unable to authenticate with the purchased subscription code. Would you please solve it, I want to use the app quickly.
Cheated out of money, slowed my phone
by hlvcaine on 2020/04/21 16:48
I paid for A full year of premium, They took the money, but now they Say I need to upgrade. They're unresponsive and the app is slowing my phone down dreadfully. If I hadn't already spent money on it, I would delete it. I can't believe that I spent Money for a whole year of this product Only to be told I need to upgrade again. Also, this product doesn't work on multiple devices. It only works on your phone. If you want it to work on something else, you have to buy it again, which I think is stupid. It's buggy and it causes things to lag, and sometimes it causes websites not to load at all or have to refresh over and over. Waste of time and money.
Started out great but ...
by itong365 on 2020/04/19 22:50
It was great at first. I love that it scans all the problems for me but one thing that bothers me is the VPN option. VPN makes the data connection (NOT WIFI) very slow/unusable. I can never turn it off; even after I switch it off, it automatically turns on again. It’s causing such a nuisance for me.
GREAT APP
by scannerjack01 on 2020/04/13 00:52
I wish we had a way to change the VPN Settings Ourselves like change Countries and The VPN MODE. All other VPN’s that I have used let us Change the VPN’s connections. This does protect your IP address and Your DNS. I did a VPN and a DNS leak test and This app does protect Your Privacy. From Jack

Slow down

100% recommended on Mac or PC
by MrStatix on 2020/03/31 14:47
I don’t really know about mobile, but Avast is really good. My dad got a MacBook Air in 2013 from my mother and it was one of the newest ones at the time so it was really expensive. Fast forward here I’ve been downloading stuff off the internet without me questioning myself, I kept getting this pop up that said “Your Mac is low on memory”. It looked like a real pop up so I looked it up and I started panicking immediately because the results were saying it’s an adware or virus. I need this laptop as in progress through high school and if my father found out that I had gotten a virus he would’ve killed me. I downloaded other anti-virus programs and they didn’t do me much, and my friend recommended Avast. I’ve seen ads for Avast on YouTube before but never tried it, I gave it a whirl and it offered me a 60 day free trial right off the get-go, which was amazing. And so I did a scan and it found malware that most other softwares didn’t even pick up, even I didn’t know it was malware it looked like a real Apple software. I can 100% say that Avast is a total life saver, I’d 10/10 recommended to friends and family.
Do you have to pay a fee every month

Do you have to pay for this app
Please help
by that boi devin on 2020/03/25 05:27
Whenever I have web protection off it says I have 1 issue. When I scan again it says the same thing. When I turn it on it says there are 0 issues. And when I scan it again it says that I’m protected. Does that mean I still have an issue with my phone or is it protected. Please I’m scared I’m going to lose my phone.
Can’t share photos from my vault

Can’t share or save any photos from my vault. It either crashes or loads indefinitely whether it be 100 photos or just 1 photo.

With in the past few hours of investigating the Avast website. I found out that you can definitely protect your computer, phone and tablet with the only peace of software that you will ever need. And it comes absolutely free to download and use. And I also wish that you could remotely scan your computer from your phone while your away. And it still needs to be updated
A significant irritant that drops my rating two stars.
by millersdad on 2019/04/11 10:31
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.

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.
Can’t Connect to App Store with Avast Running
by moonlitbeach on 2020/01/25 21:22
After installing this app, I am not able to connect to the Apple App Store with this app running. This is true on all of my Apple devices, including my MacBook Air, my iPad and my iPhone. After spending a great deal of time troubleshooting this myself and on the phone with Apple support, the 4th Genius Bar technician discovered that the Avast product was the culprit. We turned off the Avast Mobile Security VPN, and I could then connect to the App Store. Considering that this application was purchased from the App Store, it makes no sense that it should then prevent further connections to the App Store. Please fix this bug.
Problems with the app!
by Beau519 on 2019/10/25 18:44
I messaged your technical support team but got no response! The app was working well prior to my transpacific trip recently. The app would not allow connection to United Airlines’s WiFi to engage in their inflight entertainment. The only way to connect was to temporarily delete the app. Once at my destination, I pulled it from the App Store cloud and reinstalled. It worked again. I had to repeat this procedure on my return trip; however after reinstalling it again, now it does not work for “safe browsing”. It keeps acting like I need to repurchase the app. At the same time it states that my account is active until September 2020. I need the safe browsing (VPN) to work. Help!!
2nd Review
by masked23 on 2020/08/06 23:11
I purchased the premium version of this for my iPad. I also added it to my iPhone. I deleted the apps and canceled my subscription as I was uncomfortable with an IP address being shown on app. Message from Apple said I could reinstall the app as there was time left on my original subscription. I did reinstall the app and reactivated a subscription renewal. It renews next March. The app on my iPad and iPhone will not save the vpn activation. I have to reactivate each time for both devices. I’ve called Avast support twice and since they can’t find an account for me since my purchase was through the App Store they refused to help on the issue I’m having. I am frustrated.
Cheated out of money, slowed my phone
by hlvcaine on 2020/04/21 16:48
I paid for A full year of premium, They took the money, but now they Say I need to upgrade. They're unresponsive and the app is slowing my phone down dreadfully. If I hadn't already spent money on it, I would delete it. I can't believe that I spent Money for a whole year of this product Only to be told I need to upgrade again. Also, this product doesn't work on multiple devices. It only works on your phone. If you want it to work on something else, you have to buy it again, which I think is stupid. It's buggy and it causes things to lag, and sometimes it causes websites not to load at all or have to refresh over and over. Waste of time and money.
Excellent app, but a bug is found.
by Notes and Updates on 2019/10/25 23:49
I have a premium version, but when I was trying to install the Secure Browsing VPN, it says, ”Error, unable to install VPN profile.” It happened on all of my devices (Including iPhone and iPad). When I see this for the first time, I thought it's just on my iPhone. When I see this on my iPad, I realized that it's a bug in the app I've installed. So I was wondering if you can fix it. Sincerely, Papichi05, President of Ages, Inc.
Love the app. Current version not updating.
by splakavellie on 2020/08/02 16:26
Hello just wanted to say I love this app, great 👍🏾 protection. Went to upset this morning and it is not connecting to upload new version. I have iPhone 6+ current apple software. First time this has happen. I shut phone off back on and tried second time and still not uploading new version. Just wanted to let you guys know thanks 🙏🏾 😊
Malfunctioned App
by Nuclearcat666 on 2020/06/15 22:07
When I downloaded the app it worked for about 2 weeks then malfunctioned today. Today it kept saying that there was malicious websites and kept blocking them. The problem was that these “malicious” websites were parts of The Apple App Store, Reddit, Etc... For Example Whenever I Open The Apple App Store it loads for a few seconds then it would report about 8 of the links involving the App Store then crash. These links are the very same links that enable the App Store to even load. Meaning that it would block Entire Apps Themselves. It’s unfortunate that I had to delete the app but it was mandatory or else my phone would be rendered essentially useless. After the deletion everything ran fine again Something strange was that whenever I deleted any other app it only took around 10 seconds. However this app took around 3 minutes which was rather suspicious. Anyways in my opinion I wouldn’t trust this app and will not download it again. Have a great day,
TIME WILL TELL
by Breuche on 2020/02/19 19:17

Can’t access Apple App Store with encryption turned on.
by Disappointmrnt on 2019/12/08 18:02
Seemed to install OK, everything on my new 11 worked except could not connect to the App Store. Local Verizon store couldn’t find anything wrong with phone or settings. Discovered that if I turned off “encryption” I could download apps. But what a bother, turn on & off a security feature so I can use basic features. Their tech dept suggested I try different servers - I decided to cancel the service and look elsewhere. Too bad, the features are attractive, price is reasonable but I’m not willing to give up normal functionality for their security.
I think should be added
by do anyone else agree with me on 2020/08/11 11:46
Can you make it free longer so we can trust you more and make it lest money on pc and make some adds about what you can do and probably make proof it will drag more attention and it will be money or if it fails for the week or two make one or two ads but I am just a kid on my dad phone so what can I do bye
Meh...
by Bobbywinters on 2020/05/21 01:56
I don’t really have any way of knowing that the app is actually working. It isn’t alerting me to obvious spam. AND.. when I get emails with what I know are malicious attachments (zip files, etc) it does not flag them. Not even sure it’s protecting anything. WORST is the VPN feature, which constantly bogs down and will not allow me to connect to the network. Pretty disappointing. My advice is don’t waste your money. I did purchase Avast for my MacBook and I’m happy with that. Just expected this app to work the same way, and unfortunately it does not.
Others are a scam
by feed back man on 2020/07/22 02:44
So I trust you because you don’t freaking ask for money and on other “ security “ apps they run a fake screen when you press eliminate threats it plays a screen and if you press it again it runs again so I trust you with my personal info on my phone thank you for your time :3
NEEDS to be COMPATIBLE with your SecureLine app.
by Dikk777 on 2019/09/03 05:29
I would of rated this app much better if this was also compatible with your other VPN, this should also include virus scans like your computer application. And for those who pay for your computer applications should have full access to your app for free, like the SecureLine app. In short this is a glorified VPN (to a degree). Edit- there should also be a system in place that encrypts or alerts you when there’s a breach in locked notes.

Great! But the VPN…
by Gino X Hyena on 2020/06/20 15:36
The only thing I suggest is that the app should give you the choice to turn on VPN. When I don’t have it on, I keep getting notifications saying I have “1 unresolved issue.” I have slow internet speed so I’d rather keep it off. Everything else is good security-wise. If VPNs don’t bother you, get the app.
Unreliable
by jo niles on 2020/05/07 05:38
When this works, it works well. But every few days it locks up with the VPN off while yet saying it’s on. At that point it’s impossible to switch the VPN on again without uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Eventually, however, even doing this didn’t work, so I uninstalled it for the last time. The app has potential. But they need to spend more time on design and testing instead of on gimmicky screens. As it stands, this app reflects badly on Avast’s reputation. And that’s a shame.
Security &Privacy app Annoying
by RedSpin on 2020/04/30 17:05
It works ok on my laptop and I’ve had a paid subscription for a while. Now I am unable to turn it off when I want to watch cable programs on my iPad as cable subscription won’t connect while VPN is on. Since I have a paid subscription I uninstalled and downloaded the VPN Proxy app which seems to work ok since I can turn it off when necessary. Unnecessarily confusing.
Avast Security System
by Csrolsport on 2020/03/08 12:44
Avast security system is one of the best systems worldwide; they offer a variety of protection for all your electronic devices. Avast free app is a great start ; but of course the Premium package is superior. You can rest assured and have complete confidence that your devices are safe, they can hack lots of secure sites today but they cannot hack Avast.
Peace of Mind
by Chubberj on 2019/10/09 00:02
This app is amazing. I worry a lot about internet safety and security. This app gives you an all-in-one place to check wi-fi safety and leaked passwords. There’s a small bug since updating to iOS 13, where the name of the network is just seen as “Wi-Fi,” but it still works wonderfully.
Its Alright But...
by itsjoseph24 on 2020/07/30 01:20
Its a good app at the start but like after a year your phone tends to get interrupted by the VPN. It happened to me recently. Just one random night my phone completely just stopped working I couldn’t watch any videos on my social or use my streaming apps or anything. I thought my phone bill was due but it wasn’t! I had to go to my phone company and they said it was my VPN..
Great Protection but needs to match other Avast products
by Devin707 on 2020/01/26 17:26
I’m very happy with everything but the VPN. If the Avast VPN app allows me to select a location, why doesn’t this app? This one seems to default the location to Czechia, which is frustrating when trying to browse in any language but Czech or Russian. Should be a quick fix/mod.
Brilliant
by Invdr_Tak on 2019/09/01 14:15
I have used Avast for many years on my computers and am happy to welcome Avast to my iPhone. Today Avast security alerted me that my one of my passwords have been leaked and where. Being able to pick up the pieces has never been easier. Thank you for having my back.

by NORTHERN BLACK RAVEN on 2020/08/11 14:49

It would be great except...
by Pantical on 2019/05/23 02:10
It constantly having to reconnect to the VPN. Could be a sleep thing but sometimes it happens while actively surfing. Update. Now the product says I have a leaked password from 2 months ago. I cannot find any details to know which password it is referring to, and more importantly, how was it leaked if this software was supposed to be protecting me. I want to like this software but so far my experience has not been so good.
Didn’t help at all
by lost1000000 on 2020/05/21 04:17
Wish I had looked at reviews before buying. It just didn’t work. Only locked me out of the few things I could get into. I just had to restart my iPad from the beginning to get it to work.
Subscribed and paid for 14-free 1 year paid Avast Security & Privacy
by Blu43 on 2020/08/01 15:54
Actually got this, Avast Security & Privacy AND Avast SecureLine VPN Proxy. My problem is with Security & Privacy. First: Hope I don’t get redundant overlapping coverage which degrades actual performance. On Security & privacy, I opened app to blue screen and Orsnge dot /Avast symbol center page and nothing else. Hasn’t offered sign on or account, just this dot center page. Called goggle phone number - not (or no longer)active?? I guess I need unsubscribe to try to end my pain!

I have been using this PAID app for a couple of months and really have no way of knowing if it actually works. It keeps turning off the web protection by itself and if you try to submit a problem after putting in your email address and issue the there is NO way of getting to the submit button. I’m really having doubts about this app. Maybe I can get a response from this review.
Seems great so far.
by LudieLou on 2019/04/25 15:10
I like what I’ve seen so far, but haven’t had it long enough to give it a fair rating yet. Haven’t had any problems yet. I need some type of virus protection on my iPad, and this was recommended by a local merchant that I trust. I feel more safe with this protection on my device.
Suggestion
by Drew Shulman on 2020/06/25 23:53
Would it be possible To see the app block ads and pop-ups in chrome for iOS because I constantly get ads a lot and I’d like to see this app fix that
Safe
by jp a-z on 2019/12/03 17:34
For the first time since I have had a cell phone I feel secure in using it. Thanks for your product. I checked CNET for the best product and yours came up. I had never heard of it before. Thanks again.
Slows connection
by Byte2002 on 2019/10/03 13:23
I love the fact that security vpn use is enabled but unfortunately it limits access to many of my iphones applications as well as slows my connection down drastically when loading larger items or doing multi sourcing ie streaming music, using google maps, and Facebook at the same time are horrible.
Slow down
by Ilovemacsipads on 2020/04/03 18:54
Last update has slowed things down. Connecting to anything internet (WiFi) has now started to time out with a connection failed error. Still 4 stars but not if this continues.

Installed Avast on an iPad, I wanted to see if it was a worthwhile product to be installed. First thing the app did was tell me about router threat and wanted me to install the pro $$$$$ version. I knew my router was secure, but I checked it with four other sites and ran their diagnostics test on my network and they all confirmed my router was secure. So my assessment of this product is very simple, all this App or company wants is your money they don’t care about securing your devices.

Highly Recommend Security App
by Pradis on 2019/12/22 23:07
I have used Avast on my PC’s for 7 or 8 years now without being infected or compromised. Originally recommended by a colleague in our district tech office. Reliable and secure.
A real Mistake

Today I purchased your app. for my IPhone 11. Since then I have just spent the last hour deleting and reloading three different apps your software locked up your app screwed up. As soon as I deleted your app. they are now working. Why even offer an app. when you know it will do what I just experienced? As a developed you should be barred from the business.

VPN keeps disconnecting
by Shellyb1221 on 2020/08/13 03:26
Up until about a week or so ago, it worked fine. Now the VPN keeps turning off. I have to keep checking it everytime I turn my phone on or even switch between apps. Very irritating. This is not free.
VPN Turns Off
by louie925 on 2020/08/12 06:25
I have noticed after only a few months of owning a subscription, Avast usually turns off VPN. I have read the troubleshooting tips. I have downloaded the latest version. I have deleted and re down loaded the app. Every time I open the app the VPN switch is off. I manually turn it on then close the app and upon reopening the VPN is disabled.

Can’t Pause since Recent Update
by Maestrofred on 2020/08/01 21:13
Since the last update a few days ago I can’t pause the VPN - it turns itself back on immediately on both my iPhone and my iPad.
Subscribed and paid for 14-free 1 year paid Avast Security & Privacy
by Blu43 on 2020/08/01 15:54
Actually got this, Avast Security & Privacy AND Avast SecureLine VPN Proxy. My problem is with Security & Privacy. First: Hope I don’t get redundant overlapping coverage which degrades actual performance. On Security & privacy, I opened app to blue screen and Orsnge dot /Avast symbol center page and nothing else. Hasn’t offered sign on or account, just this dot center page. Called goggle phone number - not (or no longer)active?? I guess I need unsubscribe to try to end my pain!

Its Alright But...
by itsjoseph24 on 2020/07/30 01:20
Its a good app at the start but like after a year your phone tends to get interrupted by the VPN. It happened to me recently. Just one random night my phone completely just stopped working I couldn’t watch any videos on my social or use my streaming apps or anything. I thought my phone bill was due but it wasn’t! I had to go to my phone company and they said it was my VPN..

Updated: Unreliable & Photo Vault Fails
by DannyPA107 on 2020/07/20 14:51
This app is positively terrible. It frequently disrupts internet connection, the VPN profile often fails, and the photo vault is garbage. Even after wasting $19.99 for the yearly subscription this thing still prompts me to “upgrade” in order to use the photo vault. When I confirm the purchase, it still fails to work. The vault also forces you to go back to the beginning of your camera roll to try and select anything and doesn’t work with albums, etc. I’ve reached out to support several times and have been told there is no resolution to the photo vault issue. They’ve more or less blown off my other concerns saying the development team will be notified. At this point I wish I’d never spent the money on this thing.

VPN
by Dicaprio78 on 2020/07/19 13:30
My only complaint is that the VPN is constant and interferes with connections and some gaming apps; I wish the VPN activation was more versatile. I turned the VPN off on both the app and my IPhone and it still remained on. Other that the app is amazing.

Should I Even Have This App?
by OMG6713 on 2020/07/18 18:18
Note: Before I start, I caution anyone using the app to click on the VPN and turn off auto-connect. It hasn’t asked me to allow auto-connection which proved to be suspicious on its own. It appears ever since I downloaded this app, strange things have been happening on my phone. Random gibberish being typed, and sent, when I’m not even laying a finger on my keyboard yet about to type to someone I know. Not to mention the “glitching,” as my phone jumps from up to down, the message being cut in half as it seemingly taps onto the middle of my text and adding letters, again when I’m not even typing. As well as multiple times throughout this message I’ve had to copy and paste as it keeps messing with my message and cutting off it off entirely. My personal opinion? Delete this app if it’s giving you the same issues something shady is going on and it can cost you. I can’t type anymore with it, it’s purposely messing me up. For all I know this app could have been corrupted or who knows what. What I do know is that this app is not all that it seems, maybe it even trying to gather all my data. I got this app because I found out on pc that it was available on phone, so I got it. Seems like it wasn’t the best action to take as something like this has never happened to me, that is, of course, until I downloaded this app on my phone. As for why I have it at five stars? Not because I like it, in fact this experience has made me become distrustful of Avast, especially on phones and tablets. I did it so that whoever has this app knows, or I guess doesn’t know but will now, what the possible dangers could be with it installed.

by Gino X Hyena on 2020/06/20 15:36
The only thing I suggest is that the app should give you the choice to turn on VPN. When I don’t have it on, I keep getting notifications saying I have “1 unresolved issue.” I have slow internet speed so I’d rather keep it off. Everything else is good security-wise. If VPNs don’t bother you, get the app.

Malfunctioned App
by Nuclearcat666 on 2020/06/15 22:07
When I downloaded the app it worked for about 2 weeks then malfunctioned today. Today it kept saying that there was malicious websites and kept blocking them. The problem was that these “malicious” websites were parts of The Apple App Store, Reddit, Etc... For Example Whenever I Open The Apple App Store it loads for a few seconds then it would report about 8 of the links involving the App Store then crash. These links are the very same links that enable the App Store to even load. Meaning that it would block Entire Apps Themselves. It’s unfortunate that I had to delete the app but it was mandatory or else my phone would be rendered essentially useless. After the deletion everything ran fine again Something strange was that whenever I deleted any other app it only took around 10 seconds. However this app took around 3 minutes which was rather suspicious. Anyways in my opinion I wouldn’t trust this app and will not download it again. Have a great day,

Downloaded the app and it slowed down my WiFi speeds tremendously. Deleted the app and every since my WiFi and Bluetooth will not work at all. I know it still has something to do with this app because when I try to allow to turn on my personal hotspot my password changes every time and it never did that before downloading this app. DO NOT INSTALL THIS VPN ON YOUR PHONE!!!!!

Wish I had looked at reviews before buying. It just didn’t work. Only locked me out of the few things I could get into. I just had to restart my iPad from the beginning to get it to work.
Meh...
by Bobbywinters on 2020/05/21 01:56
I don’t really have any way of knowing that the app is actually working. It isn’t alerting me to obvious spam. AND.. when I get emails with what I know are malicious attachments (zip files, etc) it does not flag them. Not even sure it’s protecting anything. WORST is the VPN feature, which constantly bogs down and will not allow me to connect to the network. Pretty disappointing. My advice is don’t waste your money. I did purchase Avast for my MacBook and I’m happy with that. Just expected this app to work the same way, and unfortunately it does not.

Unreliable
by jo niles on 2020/05/07 05:38
When this works, it works well. But every few days it locks up with the VPN off while yet saying it’s on. At that point it’s impossible to switch the VPN on again without uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Eventually, however, even doing this didn’t work, so I uninstalled it for the last time. The app has potential. But they need to spend more time on design and testing instead of on gimmicky screens. As it stands, this app reflects badly on Avast’s reputation. And that’s a shame.
Security &Privacy app Annoying
by RedSpin on 2020/04/30 17:05
It works ok on my laptop and I’ve had a paid subscription for a while. Now I am unable to turn it off when I want to watch cable programs on my iPad as cable subscription won’t connect while VPN is on. Since I have a paid subscription I uninstalled and downloaded the VPN Proxy app which seems to work ok since I can turn it off when necessary. Unnecessarily confusing.
Slows my iPad

I can`t authenticate with the purchased code.
by SayGood :) on 2020/04/22 16:01
I purchased Avast Ultimate subscription code. I entered the Avast Code into the Apple Avast Security App, but it was not authenticated. Because has an error in the Avast Security App itself. Click "already purchased the code" - Square box for entering code - In the blank, the "OK" button was activated, but once the code was entered, the "OK" button was disabled. So I was unable to authenticate with the purchased subscription code. Would you please solve it, I want to use the app quickly.
Cheated out of money, slowed my phone
by hlvcaine on 2020/04/21 16:48
I paid for A full year of premium, They took the money, but now they Say I need to upgrade. They're unresponsive and the app is slowing my phone down dreadfully. If I hadn't already spent money on it, I would delete it. I can't believe that I spent Money for a whole year of this product Only to be told I need to upgrade again. Also, this product doesn't work on multiple devices. It only works on your phone. If you want it to work on something else, you have to buy it again, which I think is stupid. It's buggy and it causes things to lag, and sometimes it causes websites not to load at all or have to refresh over and over. Waste of time and money.
Started out great but ...
by itong365 on 2020/04/19 22:50
It was great at first. I love that it scans all the problems for me but one thing that bothers me is the VPN option. VPN makes the data connection (NOT WIFI) very slow/unusable. I can never turn it off; even after I switch it off, it automatically turns on again. It’s causing such a nuisance for me.
GREAT APP
by scannerjack01 on 2020/04/13 00:52

100% recommended on Mac or PC
by MrStatix on 2020/03/31 14:47
I don’t really know about mobile, but Avast is really good. My dad got a MacBook Air in 2013 from my mother and it was one of the newest ones at the time so it was really expensive. Fast forward here I’ve been downloading stuff off the internet without me questioning myself, I kept getting this pop up that said “Your Mac is low on memory”. It looked like a real pop up so I looked it up and I started panicking immediately because the results were saying it’s an adware or virus. I need this laptop as in progress through high school and if my father found out that I had gotten a virus he would’ve killed me. I downloaded other anti-virus programs and they didn’t do me much, and my friend recommended Avast. I’ve seen ads for Avast on YouTube before but never tried it, I gave it a whirl and it offered me a 60 day free trial right off the get-go, which was amazing. And so I did a scan and it found malware that most other softwares didn’t even pick up, even I didn’t know it was malware it looked like a real Apple software. I can 100% say that Avast is a total life saver, I’d 10/10 recommended to friends and family.

Whenever I have web protection off it says I have 1 issue. When I scan again it says the same thing. When I turn it on it says there are 0 issues. And when I scan it again it says that I’m protected. Does that mean I still have an issue with my phone or is it protected. Please I’m scared I’m going to lose my phone.

With in the past few hours of investigating the Avast website. I found out that you can definitely protect your computer, phone and tablet with the only peace of software that you will ever need. And it comes absolutely free to download and use. And I also wish that you could remotely scan your computer from your phone while your away. And it still needs to be updated
A significant irritant that drops my rating two stars.
by millersdad on 2019/04/11 10:31
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.

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.
Can’t Connect to App Store with Avast Running
by moonlitbeach on 2020/01/25 21:22
After installing this app, I am not able to connect to the Apple App Store with this app running. This is true on all of my Apple devices, including my MacBook Air, my iPad and my iPhone. After spending a great deal of time troubleshooting this myself and on the phone with Apple support, the 4th Genius Bar technician discovered that the Avast product was the culprit. We turned off the Avast Mobile Security VPN, and I could then connect to the App Store. Considering that this application was purchased from the App Store, it makes no sense that it should then prevent further connections to the App Store. Please fix this bug.
Problems with the app!
by Beau519 on 2019/10/25 18:44
I messaged your technical support team but got no response! The app was working well prior to my transpacific trip recently. The app would not allow connection to United Airlines’s WiFi to engage in their inflight entertainment. The only way to connect was to temporarily delete the app. Once at my destination, I pulled it from the App Store cloud and reinstalled. It worked again. I had to repeat this procedure on my return trip; however after reinstalling it again, now it does not work for “safe browsing”. It keeps acting like I need to repurchase the app. At the same time it states that my account is active until September 2020. I need the safe browsing (VPN) to work. Help!!

I purchased the premium version of this for my iPad. I also added it to my iPhone. I deleted the apps and canceled my subscription as I was uncomfortable with an IP address being shown on app. Message from Apple said I could reinstall the app as there was time left on my original subscription. I did reinstall the app and reactivated a subscription renewal. It renews next March. The app on my iPad and iPhone will not save the vpn activation. I have to reactivate each time for both devices. I’ve called Avast support twice and since they can’t find an account for me since my purchase was through the App Store they refused to help on the issue I’m having. I am frustrated.
Cheated out of money, slowed my phone
by hlvcaine on 2020/04/21 16:48
I paid for A full year of premium, They took the money, but now they Say I need to upgrade. They're unresponsive and the app is slowing my phone down dreadfully. If I hadn't already spent money on it, I would delete it. I can't believe that I spent Money for a whole year of this product Only to be told I need to upgrade again. Also, this product doesn't work on multiple devices. It only works on your phone. If you want it to work on something else, you have to buy it again, which I think is stupid. It's buggy and it causes things to lag, and sometimes it causes websites not to load at all or have to refresh over and over. Waste of time and money.
Excellent app, but a bug is found.
by Notes and Updates on 2019/10/25 23:49
I have a premium version, but when I was trying to install the Secure Browsing VPN, it says, ”Error, unable to install VPN profile.” It happened on all of my devices (Including iPhone and iPad). When I see this for the first time, I thought it's just on my iPhone. When I see this on my iPad, I realized that it's a bug in the app I've installed. So I was wondering if you can fix it. Sincerely, Papichi05, President of Ages, Inc.
Love the app. Current version not updating.
by splakavellie on 2020/08/02 16:26
Hello just wanted to say I love this app, great 👍🏾 protection. Went to upset this morning and it is not connecting to upload new version. I have iPhone 6+ current apple software. First time this has happen. I shut phone off back on and tried second time and still not uploading new version. Just wanted to let you guys know thanks 🙏🏾 😊
Malfunctioned App
by Nuclearcat666 on 2020/06/15 22:07
When I downloaded the app it worked for about 2 weeks then malfunctioned today. Today it kept saying that there was malicious websites and kept blocking them. The problem was that these “malicious” websites were parts of The Apple App Store, Reddit, Etc... For Example Whenever I Open The Apple App Store it loads for a few seconds then it would report about 8 of the links involving the App Store then crash. These links are the very same links that enable the App Store to even load. Meaning that it would block Entire Apps Themselves. It’s unfortunate that I had to delete the app but it was mandatory or else my phone would be rendered essentially useless. After the deletion everything ran fine again Something strange was that whenever I deleted any other app it only took around 10 seconds. However this app took around 3 minutes which was rather suspicious. Anyways in my opinion I wouldn’t trust this app and will not download it again. Have a great day,
TIME WILL TELL
by Breuche on 2020/02/19 19:17
I have Avast mobile on two iPads and one iPhone - I am in a free trial period with Avast Premium Security on my Mac Air - I did a lot of research on Avast - also read a lot of reviews - as far as reviews some are good and some are bad - I gave my review an optimistic five stars - I like what I see so far - hopefully Avast will be what I hope it will be - a top notch security without me having to worry about being protected - TIME WILL TELL
Can’t access Apple App Store with encryption turned on.
by Disappointmrnt on 2019/12/08 18:02
Seemed to install OK, everything on my new 11 worked except could not connect to the App Store. Local Verizon store couldn’t find anything wrong with phone or settings. Discovered that if I turned off “encryption” I could download apps. But what a bother, turn on & off a security feature so I can use basic features. Their tech dept suggested I try different servers - I decided to cancel the service and look elsewhere. Too bad, the features are attractive, price is reasonable but I’m not willing to give up normal functionality for their security.
I think should be added
by do anyone else agree with me on 2020/08/11 11:46
Can you make it free longer so we can trust you more and make it lest money on pc and make some adds about what you can do and probably make proof it will drag more attention and it will be money or if it fails for the week or two make one or two ads but I am just a kid on my dad phone so what can I do bye
Meh...
by Bobbywinters on 2020/05/21 01:56
I don’t really have any way of knowing that the app is actually working. It isn’t alerting me to obvious spam. AND.. when I get emails with what I know are malicious attachments (zip files, etc) it does not flag them. Not even sure it’s protecting anything. WORST is the VPN feature, which constantly bogs down and will not allow me to connect to the network. Pretty disappointing. My advice is don’t waste your money. I did purchase Avast for my MacBook and I’m happy with that. Just expected this app to work the same way, and unfortunately it does not.
Others are a scam
by feed back man on 2020/07/22 02:44
So I trust you because you don’t freaking ask for money and on other “ security “ apps they run a fake screen when you press eliminate threats it plays a screen and if you press it again it runs again so I trust you with my personal info on my phone thank you for your time :3
NEEDS to be COMPATIBLE with your SecureLine app.
by Dikk777 on 2019/09/03 05:29
I would of rated this app much better if this was also compatible with your other VPN, this should also include virus scans like your computer application. And for those who pay for your computer applications should have full access to your app for free, like the SecureLine app. In short this is a glorified VPN (to a degree). Edit- there should also be a system in place that encrypts or alerts you when there’s a breach in locked notes.

Great! But the VPN…
by Gino X Hyena on 2020/06/20 15:36
The only thing I suggest is that the app should give you the choice to turn on VPN. When I don’t have it on, I keep getting notifications saying I have “1 unresolved issue.” I have slow internet speed so I’d rather keep it off. Everything else is good security-wise. If VPNs don’t bother you, get the app.
Unreliable
by jo niles on 2020/05/07 05:38
When this works, it works well. But every few days it locks up with the VPN off while yet saying it’s on. At that point it’s impossible to switch the VPN on again without uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Eventually, however, even doing this didn’t work, so I uninstalled it for the last time. The app has potential. But they need to spend more time on design and testing instead of on gimmicky screens. As it stands, this app reflects badly on Avast’s reputation. And that’s a shame.
Security &Privacy app Annoying
by RedSpin on 2020/04/30 17:05
It works ok on my laptop and I’ve had a paid subscription for a while. Now I am unable to turn it off when I want to watch cable programs on my iPad as cable subscription won’t connect while VPN is on. Since I have a paid subscription I uninstalled and downloaded the VPN Proxy app which seems to work ok since I can turn it off when necessary. Unnecessarily confusing.
Avast Security System
by Csrolsport on 2020/03/08 12:44
Avast security system is one of the best systems worldwide; they offer a variety of protection for all your electronic devices. Avast free app is a great start ; but of course the Premium package is superior. You can rest assured and have complete confidence that your devices are safe, they can hack lots of secure sites today but they cannot hack Avast.
Peace of Mind
by Chubberj on 2019/10/09 00:02
This app is amazing. I worry a lot about internet safety and security. This app gives you an all-in-one place to check wi-fi safety and leaked passwords. There’s a small bug since updating to iOS 13, where the name of the network is just seen as “Wi-Fi,” but it still works wonderfully.
Its Alright But...
by itsjoseph24 on 2020/07/30 01:20
Its a good app at the start but like after a year your phone tends to get interrupted by the VPN. It happened to me recently. Just one random night my phone completely just stopped working I couldn’t watch any videos on my social or use my streaming apps or anything. I thought my phone bill was due but it wasn’t! I had to go to my phone company and they said it was my VPN..
Great Protection but needs to match other Avast products
by Devin707 on 2020/01/26 17:26
I’m very happy with everything but the VPN. If the Avast VPN app allows me to select a location, why doesn’t this app? This one seems to default the location to Czechia, which is frustrating when trying to browse in any language but Czech or Russian. Should be a quick fix/mod.
Brilliant
by Invdr_Tak on 2019/09/01 14:15
I have used Avast for many years on my computers and am happy to welcome Avast to my iPhone. Today Avast security alerted me that my one of my passwords have been leaked and where. Being able to pick up the pieces has never been easier. Thank you for having my back.
Notice yesterday after the update is crashing a lot
by NORTHERN BLACK RAVEN on 2020/08/11 14:49
I took an update on an Apple iPad Pro and it made things worse it keeps turning off before I took the update I didn’t seem to have this problem
It would be great except...
by Pantical on 2019/05/23 02:10
It constantly having to reconnect to the VPN. Could be a sleep thing but sometimes it happens while actively surfing. Update. Now the product says I have a leaked password from 2 months ago. I cannot find any details to know which password it is referring to, and more importantly, how was it leaked if this software was supposed to be protecting me. I want to like this software but so far my experience has not been so good.
Didn’t help at all
by lost1000000 on 2020/05/21 04:17
Wish I had looked at reviews before buying. It just didn’t work. Only locked me out of the few things I could get into. I just had to restart my iPad from the beginning to get it to work.
Subscribed and paid for 14-free 1 year paid Avast Security & Privacy
by Blu43 on 2020/08/01 15:54
Actually got this, Avast Security & Privacy AND Avast SecureLine VPN Proxy. My problem is with Security & Privacy. First: Hope I don’t get redundant overlapping coverage which degrades actual performance. On Security & privacy, I opened app to blue screen and Orsnge dot /Avast symbol center page and nothing else. Hasn’t offered sign on or account, just this dot center page. Called goggle phone number - not (or no longer)active?? I guess I need unsubscribe to try to end my pain!
Had avast for more than 10 years
by Ame Den on 2019/01/31 04:04
This is the 1st time i am adding it to my iPad and I am very curious about it. Over those 10 + years i had it on my laptop/desktop even my cell but never on my iPad. Hope to get the same excellent protection.
Help!
by StillChillLord on 2020/07/04 15:00
I have the app avast but I put a photo vault password and I have forgot it so I try to delete the app but if I do my photos will send to my computer that don’t work and I wanna keep them and I have no computer so please help!
Customer Service??
by rd1055 on 2020/08/05 16:38
I have been using this PAID app for a couple of months and really have no way of knowing if it actually works. It keeps turning off the web protection by itself and if you try to submit a problem after putting in your email address and issue the there is NO way of getting to the submit button. I’m really having doubts about this app. Maybe I can get a response from this review.
Seems great so far.
by LudieLou on 2019/04/25 15:10
I like what I’ve seen so far, but haven’t had it long enough to give it a fair rating yet. Haven’t had any problems yet. I need some type of virus protection on my iPad, and this was recommended by a local merchant that I trust. I feel more safe with this protection on my device.
Suggestion
by Drew Shulman on 2020/06/25 23:53
Would it be possible To see the app block ads and pop-ups in chrome for iOS because I constantly get ads a lot and I’d like to see this app fix that
Safe
by jp a-z on 2019/12/03 17:34
For the first time since I have had a cell phone I feel secure in using it. Thanks for your product. I checked CNET for the best product and yours came up. I had never heard of it before. Thanks again.
Slows connection
by Byte2002 on 2019/10/03 13:23
I love the fact that security vpn use is enabled but unfortunately it limits access to many of my iphones applications as well as slows my connection down drastically when loading larger items or doing multi sourcing ie streaming music, using google maps, and Facebook at the same time are horrible.
Slow down
by Ilovemacsipads on 2020/04/03 18:54
Last update has slowed things down. Connecting to anything internet (WiFi) has now started to time out with a connection failed error. Still 4 stars but not if this continues.
Security
by Happy Avast User on 2020/06/20 05:08

by Jimmy Hoffman on 2020/06/18 21:20

Installed Avast on an iPad, I wanted to see if it was a worthwhile product to be installed. First thing the app did was tell me about router threat and wanted me to install the pro $$$$$ version. I knew my router was secure, but I checked it with four other sites and ran their diagnostics test on my network and they all confirmed my router was secure. So my assessment of this product is very simple, all this App or company wants is your money they don’t care about securing your devices.
Trusted Friend
by graywolf007 on 2020/05/12 00:42
I have used Avast for many years. I have tried others and found them either ‘user unfriendly’, or ‘OOPS! Missed a virus’. I would then go back to Avast, reinstall, and watch it quarantine the missed viruses.
This company has the best user friendly software
by Monstersinhouse on 2019/12/13 04:19
Iit has kept computer clean for years. The password app I am not crazy about. But everything else is wonderful.
Great anti virus
by fordyamman on 2020/08/04 04:31
Used free version for years always kept my device safe premium service even better I highly recommend this service
Easy to use but...
by Kris2x5 on 2019/09/26 14:46
I have used Avast on other devices for years and I find this is one of the most reliable and straightforward security suites...however one little bug caused me to uninstall this app. The app interfered with the ability to "search" for songs, lyrics and artists in Apple Music and ITunes!
This is the one
by Suki2020Yaki on 2020/06/11 20:08
Easy to read, very fast. Not very good with technology it this one is easy to use and no ads. I lucked out by picking this one read some reviews prior to downloading.
It’s so easy to use
by Colin8282 on 2020/05/11 17:37
It’s really easy to use...it said some things were wrong but it cleared them up in no time...I’ve looked for a good app and I found one...thank you!!!
Great App
by Able-Capable on 2020/07/13 01:54
My Apple specialist suggested this app. Can’t get any better than that. He’s had his own sales and service businesses for as long as I’ve been buying Apple products - 2007.
Highly Recommend Security App
by Pradis on 2019/12/22 23:07
I have used Avast on my PC’s for 7 or 8 years now without being infected or compromised. Originally recommended by a colleague in our district tech office. Reliable and secure.
A real Mistake
by wnatv on 2020/03/18 23:48
Today I purchased your app. for my IPhone 11. Since then I have just spent the last hour deleting and reloading three different apps your software locked up your app screwed up. As soon as I deleted your app. they are now working. Why even offer an app. when you know it will do what I just experienced? As a developed you should be barred from the business.
