Quote: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:
  • Remote functions through the web portal -
    configure any of the avast! Free Mobile Security anti-theft settings
    remotely through a web interface. Use the web to remotely locate, lock,
    or wipe your lost phone, or sound an alarm. Access the interface on
  • Improved tablet support - with the popularity of
    Android tablets such as Amazon’s Kindle Fire or the Samsung Galaxy Tab,
    AVAST has worked to provide better compatibility with these devices,
    along with delivering a specific user interface tailored for the larger
    tablet devices.
  • Network Meter - review your data usage consumed by each app, individually for WiFi, 3G, or roaming networks.
  • Widget - from your device screen, the avast!
    Widget provides you a quick view of your overall security status, and
    the ability with one tap to access the main avast! Free Mobile Security
    interface, to run a malware
    scan of your installed apps, or bring up a dashboard of device health
    information such as CPU usage, memory usage, and SD Card free space.
  • SiteCorrect - in a new feature unique to AVAST,
    our web protection will now detect common URL typing mistakes and can
    redirect you to the site you intended to visit.
