Last Updated: April 25th, 2013

We've long been fans of avast! around here. From the antivirus functionality itself to the brilliant anti-theft features with root support, it's one of the absolute best security apps on the Store today – and it keeps getting better. Take the most recent update, for example.

At this point, avast! is already working with a great app, so the most recent additions have been about streamlining. Simplifying. Taking the good and making it great. In the latest release, the company simplified the setup process for the anti-theft service, along with adding a new interface for that part of the app. The improvements don't end with Anti-Theft, either – you can now view your entire activity log with a simple swipe, the recently-implemented File Shield and Folder scanning keep your locally-stored content safe, and the uninstall process for protected apps has been tweaked for additional security. Like I said – it's all about polish at this point.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

But that doesn't mean it's perfect. In fact, avast! is taking this opportunity to pose exactly that question to its users: what feature (or features) would you like to see added to avast! Mobile Security?

And it just so happens that that's the single, solitary entry requirement for the giveaway. Oh, I didn't tell you about the giveaway? You're going to love this.



Thanks to avast!, we have a total of nine Nexus devices to give away:

That's a lotta Nexuses.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

As I've already mentioned, there is only one entry requirement for this contest. As such, we're going to double check the randomly-selected entries before declaring them as "winners." In other words, you must answer the question in your comment! No exceptions!


  • Correct: I would love to see a fully customizable firewall built into avast!
  • Incorrect: Pick me!!!11!!!oneone11!22eleven

If your comment looks anything like the latter and doesn't even attempt to answer the question, it will not be accepted. You can, however, throw other thoughts into your comment alongside the answer. Thumbsup.jpg

This giveaway is international (excludes North Korea, Sudan, Iran, or anywhere else with a U.S. embargo).

The contest begins now and will run for one week, ending on Saturday, April 20th at 12:00AM PT (Midnight). After that, we'll randomly pick the winners.

Good luck!

  • Harry Bithell

    Um I'd like to see the ability to remote wipe my device or even if there was a way to use a web version of the app to have remote access to everything on the phone.

  • Jared Talbert

    I haven't used the mobile version recently, but I remember the tracking feature made it difficult to find your device unless you had a smartphone to click the link.

  • Jozsef Balogh

    I would like to use longer password with numbers and upper cases for the higher security.

    more attempts at discreet photo/audio capturing of the thief, had 2 phones stolen in last 7 mos

  • Araketh

    Ability to remote snap a photo from front/rear cam would be really nice. Other than that, more optimisations are always welcomed.

  • conair

    When remote wipe is initiated how about doing the following: take picture from the front and back camera, upload all the pictures/videos and then do the remote wipe.

  • Ranger

    Provide ability to upload a suspect file to service like "virus total" to compare results against all major vendors.

  • http://www.facebook.com/slobo.milosavljevic Slobodan Milosavljevic

    I think it would be great if I could somehow encrypt and localy store senisitive data (like documents ,pictures ,audio/video-files etc...) in some kind of a safety deposit-box ,witch could also be synced to other devices/platforms with Avast Security.

    Keep up the good work!

    P.S. : was using Avast on my PC and on my laptop ,am using Avast on my Android ,hope to use Avast on a new Google Nexus device !

    CHEERS from the Netherlands ! ! !

  • Eve

    How about including a password manager, that would go along well with the other features in the security tool set and further enhance the security and privacy. Thats a feature worth paying for.

  • Riley

    I'd love to see anti-theft for tablets without mobile data over Wi-Fi. So if my tablet gets stolen, I can report it and deactivate it if the thief connects to Wi-Fi.

    I couldn't find if these were implemented, but here are two other ideas: virus scan
    downloads after they've downloaded, and safe link checking in web searches, like what the AVG web add-on currently does.

    I know this is not really a feature but I would like the app to have less overhead. Having extra free memory would be a nice touch if the apps memory usage could be reduced.

  • http://www.facebook.com/maximo.iglesias Maximo Iglesias

    An excelent feature will be a way to render the phone useless in case of theft when a different sim is inserted, deleting all the data and leaving the phone locked until you access your Avast account and unlocked it, so no one can use the phone.

  • JT

    I would like to see a remote backup option.

  • chaks

    Include a feature to schedule regular backups of contacts/photos/videos/specified folders to Google drive/Dropbox, this will prevent loss of important data. In case of theft of device, we can initiate remote wipe and still have a copy of important data. This feature is available in other apps, but i believe aVast can become the one-stop shop for mobile security and peace of mind

    I'd like a feature to take control of the data used by various apps both background and foreground. Since 3G data is so costly here in India...

  • http://twitter.com/NotCharging Kenan

    Monitor and restrict how apps use data. and to scan via WiFi

  • Lucan

    I would them to improve on the anti-theft feature by allowing me to access my phones front facing camera from a web browser.

  • B. Cox

    The ability to remotely trigger an annoying, constant and full volume audio alert (regardless of volume settings) stating something along the lines of 'This phone is stolen' (in addition to a 'strobe' mode using the flash which I believe was mentioned previously) that can only be disabled by code or possibly by remote. Pulling the battery doesn't help because the 'stolen' flag doesn't get cleared on boot. Could help keep it from being resold, etc..

  • Parth D. D.

    File encryption, file shredding( un-recoverable delete) will be great esp with all the data/pictures leaking incidents happening recently !!

    • Robin

      Yeah that'd be a great feature to have...I always feel paranoid even after deleting my personal data..

  • George ka g

  • Gracie Josephine

    I realised another feature today that avast could use. It should be able to start my front facing camera and record continulsy until I tell it to shut off..that way the thief could be caught red handed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rahim.bilakhia Rahim Bilakhia

    Nothing of the above poll, just an option to remotely take front-face

    I'd like to see something related to ads, and concur that ads might not be security-related.
    At the very least, let me know when an application I am installing or just installed will push ads.

    Blocking ads totally is likely impractical - after all we do get a bunch of apps free and ads support it, though I much prefer to donate to the author if the app is worth it and at least a dozen or so are worth having.

    I don't need links to removal or any other fancy features, as that can be easily done through the Setup menu.

    I liked it, and posted about it, when DrWeb warned about some audio-video app full of AirPush ads.

  • http://www.facebook.com/bilkish.bilakhia Bilkish Bilakhia

    Some countries have laws that block the hidden picture (without user intervention and also without sound).

  • http://www.facebook.com/farook.bilakhia Farook Bilakhia

    For anti-theft:

    - An SMS command that uses the device's default TTS engine to speak text
    - An SMS command to record audio
    - An SMS command to capture a video/photo (of the front camera if possible)
    - An SMS command to capture a screenshot
    - An SMS command to disable/close an application running in the background (some battery saving apps force mobile data/wifi/GPS off when the phone is in "sleep" mode, and I'm not sure what happens when they force it off, and avast forces it on...). By disabling unnecessary background apps, the battery would last longer too. Avast could check all the installed/running apps (like in the firewall) and upload the list to my.avast.com (excluding important system apps, perhaps).

  • http://www.facebook.com/razia.bilakhia Razia Bilakhia

    I don't mind ads, they do fuel the free apps, but i want to be notified
    when apps are overaggressive with their ads that integrate themself into
    the OS. Thats breach of my safety space and i don't want them on my
    device. I'm not asking for blocking, i'm asking for detection and
    notification of the user. Because i dont' even want to use such apps.
    Thats all i want and nothing else as the rest actually works as intended
    and i don't really miss any feature. Maybe firewall for non-root users
    but unless API will allow that, we won't see it i guess.

  • http://www.facebook.com/umar.bilakhia.7 Umar Bilakhia

    AppBrain Ad Detector has a live module to warn about this.
    I don't know how long it will survive...

    It's better than Lookout and others imho.

    As you know, new rooted features don't have much priority in AMS so I
    don't see it being implemented anytime soon, if ever. Maybe you might
    get lucky in getting this integrated into Anti-Theft instead

  • Kristen

    I think that Perfect!

  • http://www.facebook.com/zarina.bilakhia Zarina Bilakhia

    I am using adaway for adblock and it works OK. For application I don't
    think it should access internet, simply block it with avast firewall.
    avast list all the apps in the firewall setting. It would be nice to only list the app which requires the network permit.
    I miss the feature in the firewall configuration to prompt for firewall setting after an application is installed.
    I am using other parent control tools for kids to use my phone. I would think it is a good addon.
    what I want most is the feature to have privacy access control. why it is not an option in the vote?

  • http://www.facebook.com/ibrahim.bilakhia.9 Ibrahim Bilakhia

    I would like to see none of the features mentioned in Avast Mobile.

    At this point, all I want is an Avast that works. The current version freezes and crashes.

    Keep Avast lean and mean. Don't pollute it with all sorts of features, because I'll simply uninstall it when it becomes a burden to my phone. I absolutely detest bloated software.

    KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid

    INFECTED FILE REPAIR TOOL (Not Just Remove or Quarantine):
    If AVAST could possibly include REPAIR TOOL for Infected Files, instead of just Quarantine or Removal, I believe no Anti-Virus Softwares have this tool except Quickheal Antivirus.
    In Quickheal, there is a provision for REPAIRING THE INFECTED FILE, instead of just Quarantine & Removal, suppose if I am working on a friend's Mobile/Tablet/Phablet/PC, on MS-Office file, then, using my Pendrive I copy this file, then, I come back to my home, using AVAST, I find the File to be infected by a Virus, which I was working for Hours on my friend's Infected Mobile/Tablet/Phablet/PC, now, AVAST removes it or quarantines it, in both the cases the file is rendered unusable.
    But, Quickheal Antivirus REPAIRS THE FILE, so that it becomes Usable, my hours of Work on my Friend's INFECTED DEVICE is NOT LOST. FILE REPAIR event takes place after the Infected File is Quarantined by the Quickheal Anti Virus, which is Praiseworthy.
    If AVAST could include Such INFECTED FILE REPAIR TOOL, this will be the best Antivirus for many Years to come, please refer to Quickheal Antivirus for more details.

  • Cdest Hmar

    Brilliant features and interface,but avast should have a lock screen instead of a pin dialogue box
    for better interface and more faster log in.And the background (inside "filter" tab) color or fonts should be change like the fonts should be black, if there is a white background color or vice versa.Thanks to avast for setting up an accurate anti-theift features.

    Great app that clear my virus and find my phones. :D

  • Jack

    very important feature! capture the thief surrounding pictures and even the face. But usually they wipe the phone after its stolen, maybe a way to keep it installed?

  • 8fold4noble

    The only thing that I can think of that I would like to see is a better system for locating the file that was seen as a threat. Also, at one point I think it would be good if memory usage is less of an issue.

  • http://twitter.com/munkyhed Piotr

    This is a simple suggestion, but would be very helpful: a simple password recovery process .

    I recently switched from an old SGS2 to the Nexus 4 and I can't remember my password. It would be great to have a link in the login screen to send a reset link to my email and use 2 factor authentication with my cell phone to verify my identity in the process.

  • http://twitter.com/lavaro Domi “Vava” Lavaro

    i'd like to see a sandbox in avast! mobile. i know all apps on google play are clean, but still a sandbox with customized limitation would be much useful. you know, something like stop internet access of certain apps temporarily, or from access contacts and messages, or such things. thanks.

    I think a great function would be to build a fingerprint recognition into the screen when you open it from the sleep mode. If the fingerprint doesn't match the phone transmits pictures of the thief and fingerprints to the owners facebook page and/or email.

    I found an Iphone once. When we were traveling. Found it while camping. Purchased a cord. By the time I got it turned on, the owner had turned the phone off. I couldn't use it to call Mom or hubby. The phone was not locked. When we got home I looked up her name on google. Called them, sent it to them. They didn't think they would see that phone again... Something that will let just one more dial out on that phone. That way the person who found the phone, (honest person) would call mom or hubby. Then not let anymore phone calls out on that phone.. ...

    gostaria de tercoordenadas do telefone em intervalos regulares, uma vez que eu marquei-o como perdido / roubado.se pode enviar uma ou duas imagens capturadas quando o telefone foi tentada a ser desbloqueado,
    seria mais fácil de identificar o ladrão.

    If the contest is over, avast should stop the popup messages for this competition? I came right after I saw it and saw that it was over.. dissapointing :)

    Thanks to avast mobile security for innovations. Losing the phone is distressing but losing contacts in phone book is even more distressful. I would like Avast mobile security to be capable of backing contacts in the phone online in individuals account. these contacts may then be transferred to other device(with android op. system) of owners choice.

    I would like to have a Contacts backup available. I am forever pushing the wrong key(s) and losing mine. Being able to have my Contacts backed up would save me a lot of time and frustration.

    I would like a feature that would block all communications on the phone. Mobile, Wifi etc. This could be useful if a virus is trying to contact a number or get information from a server.
