Avast Cleanup is a free app for Android

After a while, your phones and tablets accumulate obsolete files and superfluous data, system caches, gallery thumbnails, and programs. This ‘junk’ slows down your device and eats up precious storage space.

Avast Cleanup identifies and cleans unwanted files from your Android device so it will run like a champ again.

Our new free app, Avast Cleanup & Boost for Android, cleans away all the unwanted files and programs so that your device is running smoothly and quickly with storage space to spare. But don’t take our word for it.

Longtime Avast customer, Thomas M. from North Lanarkshire, Scotland wrote us to tell how pleased he is with Cleanup’s performance. Thomas has used Avast for years, and uses Avast Free Antivirus to protect his home computers.

“Having installed Avast Free Antivirus 2015 on two of my PCs and a laptop, which for me is the best yet, I came across the new Avast Cleanup app which I installed on my phone and both my tablets.

I had been having a few performance issues with at least one of my tablets and my phone. After installation and running the application, both run great. The app freed up a nice amount of space and discarded lots of clutter left behind by old apps, etc.

The interface, as well as being intuitive, looks great too. I especially like the spiral animation whilst cleaning is in action. So slick!

I also like the option to store/back-up deleted items to cloud storage (if required), in this case Dropbox being the choice offered.

Nice work, Avast, once again on offering another quality fully functional free product.”

It’s our pleasure, Thomas. Thanks for taking the time to write to us.
