avast
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!

Example:

  • 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!

    Would it be possible for a stolen phone to report its location once it was declared stolen? That's what I'd like to see.

  • http://www.facebook.com/vishalimurs Vishal Handa

    I'd like Avast to add a GPS feature where it controls the GPS module of the phone. So in case a cellphone is stolen and the SIM is changed the software should turn on the GPS and an sms(with the coordinates and the SIM number) can be sent to the number which is stored in it. That way the user can track his/her stolen phone.

  • Dumitrascu Claudiu

    i guess, a backup tool will be excellent for the entire phone (apps, contacts, music, videos, photos, settings ,games maybe) and also to be able to transfer the backup to an other phone directly from your servers. I know some apps have to be paid and have different specs but maybe if it's the same model and have the same google account, to be possible via avast.

    I am very impressed with Avast and anything you can improve is fine with me although I don't see how much more you could do to improve it ;-) <3

  • Mabel

    I would like to see a feature of the avast! Mobile Security that will automatically hide the contents of the mobile phone with a PIN upon theft detection, and one that will make the mobile phone totally useless to the thief. It would be better if there would be a feature to lengthen or maximize the battery consumption of mobile phone and won't slow down the system.

    Avast! Mobile security is really great. I have been using it since I got my first smartphone. All the functions are awesome and have really made my experience with smartphones great. Not only that but Avast! rated number one when it comes to smartphone security! Well done Avast!

  • Rajesh Chauhan

    There is lots of things need to be added

    1. Remote Backup After cell lost
    2. Add Date & Time wise Map View on website
    3. Try to add toll free number to send sms on it. because its not necessary Inserted NEW has Credit to send sms.
    4.Remote Editing features for Backup Numbers (Friends Number), Some times Updated number were not used by friends

    I would love to see app permission manager, i.e. on install I decide which of required permissions would be granted for the app and which not. Or, feeding some fake info to the app about location, phone identifier, etc.

    Recording calls and taking pictures in case phone was stolen would be a nice idea. Just to have more evidence :)

    I would love to see internet access management options, for example having list of apps that:
    a) can access internet in every possible way
    b) can only access internet by WiFi
    c) can not access internet, even though they have permission to do so

    I would like to have some "silent alarm" option, meaning that device is tracked, sends data via WiFi/3G, but there is no notification about it on home screen, no siren, etc

    I'm not sure if this is implemented or not, I would like to know that if someone steals my phone, internet access for tracking purposes will be granted disregarding roaming block and/or other similar things (I hope you understand what I mean, I'm no expert about it). Of course I mean device-level blocks, not operator blocks, these I can manage on my own :)

    Sorry for any mistakes I've made, I'm no native English speaker.

    I would like to see full integration of the antivirus and the anti-theft "Agent." I felt weird having to install two separate things. Also, this is a minor complaint, but I would like an option to disable the ongoing popup icon in favor of one that only shows up when it has something new to tell me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Bllack Ненад Дивјак

    I would Like to see Avast could provide Pretty Good Privacy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... for Webmail Clients like Gmail/Yahoo/Hotmail, currently there is no Web Email Encryption call it Avast PGP Mail, where any Web Mail Clients can work, with Attachment Level Scanning & Protection, with Anti-Spam Engine built inside the Client UI. With an Option for On or Off by the User. If this feature is enabled, users can securely exchange eMails over Web enabled clients like Gmail/Yahoo/Live/Hotmail/Facebook Mailbox, no Anti-Virus Company has it, I believe if Avast could provide one, then, it would be the best Anti-Virus App to use on Smartphones.
    Secondly, if Location based tracking on Mobiles is disabled by Avast, that is if any app is trying to trap your location, then, Avast could partially hide it, this way Users are saved from disclosing their location, especially, Google Maps & Latitude are those Apps which do capture your Location,
    There are Apps which are known to capture your Telecom Service Provider details, which again compromises your Location based Security, if Avast could partially filter such requests & lets people use the App's other functionality.

    I want Avast Mobile Security to have a virtual environment established like in Avast Internet Security's "SafeZone",So, that the Android user could be very much secured from key loggers,hacker,etc. The Avast Mobile security should also have a user Friendly option like user's "Face and voice detection" option, such that no other person can break the Avast mobile Security.
    All other option are absolutely fine for me.

    I think, avast should have options to manage battery usage. For example something like battery power profiles? Low/Med/Hi power profiles? On my Galaxy Nexus it is very important to save battery power. With avast and all its' options "on", battery life is much shorter.

  • BASILIS

    perfect idea

    Hai, i would like the avast Mobile Security to have some feature like we can password protect, encrypt and hidden specific file and folder in the memory, beside we have to enter the password every time in order to access the file we have password protected ;

    This feature is very helpful, when we borow smartphones to friend to make a call and we have to leave for few second, they cannot access the file or folder that is password protected.

    Thus, this can protect our privacy.

  • Szántó Gábor

    I found the app very nice, especially the firewall and network meter options. A small addition could be a notification warning if a (background) app generates high data traffic, possibly an option for 3G and roaming. Also, as I use my phone a lot in roaming, I would find a call filter option for roaming useful, in case i still want to use mobile internet. An application wakelock warning would be a nice addition as well. Overall I was plesently surprised by the plethora of features built in the app.

    I never knew about Avast until yesterday, and I just found out about the contest today, so I don't know all of the features it DOES have, in order to come up with something I want that it does NOT have as yet. So, I'd have to say that I just need more time to explore all the great work you've already done on development of this product -- and, THANK YOU!

  • Rick

    I would like to see a firewall that would wo the without the phone being rooted.

  • Igor Farago

    Since Avast is all about security, I'd like to see file encryption a la Truecrypt, meaning you can encrypt entire SD card or create a virtual storage device in which everything contained is encrypted.

  • Da’ Jestre

    2 ideas:

    1st: Enable protection of SD card data, including both the internal memory mapped as an SD card as well as the Actual removable SD card(s)

    You should be able to completely protect selected files and directories from being seen, read, deleted or modified.

    Protection by file and location and app as well as enabling a Virtual SD card environment would be ideal.

    An app should be able to access only what I allow or to generate a prompt.

    The Virtual SD card should be able to be set as the only drive an apps sees.

    Selected apps should be able to share one of the virtual drives or be relegated to it's own isolated virtual drive.

    2nd: Automated, Encrypted online backup, both complete and incremental of files including the files protected above.

    It should embody the concepts of Google Drive or DropBox as well as truecrypt and Lastpass.

    An encrypted virtual drive style backup stored in a set location of the files and or directories selected.

    ideally you should be able to select the backup destination: GDrive, DropBox FTP: Etc.

    Then select the files and directories to back up in the encrypted file/Virtual drive.

    Automated to start at set time, or presence of Wifi, or detection of changes.

    Archive history level should bet set by files revision depth or timeframe.

    Sync to multiple devices/computers for selected files / directories

    Thats my 2 cents

  • Bima

    Maybe a feature to take automatic pictures of a thief? You could make it silently take a picture (from the front face camera, obviously) every time the eye detection software (If it has it, like on the S3) sees a face looking at the phone, then automatically email that image to you.

  • Amir Khan

    A Back Up of the items before wiping them out will be FANTASTIC!!!!
    In addition, Continuous Updates distracts many users....that too must be handled...
    and the must have software updater built-in for other apps on the mobile...
    I would also mention the Battery and Ram Intensiveness by Avast!Mobile Security...

    Having to remotely wipe the phone would be awesome. Even for the fact of getting an email for the coordinates once your phone is stolen. In this way, the security you have is just something you will be at ease at.

    I mean, let's face it almost everyone have everything on their smartphone. It will really be a turn off not having it secured by any cause.

  • Todd Williams

    I like the idea of backup before wipe, and location tracking after reported missing.
    Not so hot on the "customizable firewall" - good idea for a separate app, but not added into the current one.

    i really love how you make these stuff international , no better website !

    i think avast is doing great, but i would like to see a very simple care free app , like something i don't feel it exist and still protect me the best possible way , not a certain exact feature but more like , "hidden" and doesnt drain battery, but i think it's doing pretty well already

  • sherif

    it would also be cool to have full customization abilities in the app

    I would like to be able to enable data and gps on a lost phone! It doesn't help when the device can't be found because the data was not turned on.

  • Alojz Mikuš

    I would like to see that avast can remove some applications permissions.

    I am expecting to acquire a tablet soon along with my smart phone, they need to be covered with virus protection as well as my computer is covered. I would love to see the my three devices covered by the same protector.

  • Christopher Heidt

    I agree with other posts: I would love for Avast to include a way to back up photos, game stats, and other needed information to the cloud storage of my choice (Drive would work!).

  • Prakhar Vyas

    I would also suggest to keep important driver updates and also important software updates .

    remote wiping without root and real time scan without taking too much ram

  • Raviteja

    It have almost all features..Hard to think about new one...Remote wiping is nice feature but it need root.Everyone cant root and before wiping data would be nice if we can link our dropbox or google drive and it create a backup of files there

    I would like to see anti-theft feature such that it takes a photo of someone who stole your device upon detecting the face and send it to a specified email address.I'd also like to see an option to remotely activate a screaming alarm.

    Minimum system requirement , Fast run

  • jeff stryker

    One of the features I would like to see would be the ability to permanently block access to the recovery menu requiring either a full password or a digit pin before even entering the recovery menu. This would prevent anyone who finds/steals a device from easily wiping and making it their own.

    Integrated protect with devices and accounts. For example I am a Google user with an account, an android phone, chrome browser, with thunderbird. I purchase an extended license to my computer and my phone, I need to just sign is and it is download itself. Or other idea, that I use a protected web sandbox, where I sign in with my avast account, and all of my data goes through that server, keep it safe, and private...
