PRAGUE, Czech Republic, August 20, 2012 – AVAST Software, producers of the highest-rated Android antivirus on Google Play, brings new features to smartphone users – for FREE.
The new release comes just eight months after the introduction of avast! Free Mobile Security, which proved to be a breakthrough hit. “The free-but-full-featured Android antivirus and anti-theft app has become the highest-rated security solution on the Google Play store, with a score of 4.7 stars,” said Ondřej Vlček, CTO of AVAST Software. “We protect over 8 million active devices now and we are growing by 1 million active devices per month,” added Vlček. “We’ve now made that product even better, and we’ll continue to provide the solution for free,” commented Vince Steckler, CEO of AVAST Software.
Adding to its already feature-rich anti-malware and anti-theft capabilities, the latest version of avast! Free Mobile Security now includes the following new features:
avast! Free Mobile Security can be downloaded at Google Play store and Amazon App store.
1. On 8 April 2014, Microsoft stops support for Internet Explorer browsers running on Windows XP. This will put your computer and data, such as credit card and online banking details, at greater risk to hackers and malware.
2. Several browser alternatives exist, but we at AVAST use and recommend Chrome, as we find it to be the most-secure option available.
