What’s new in AVG AntiVirus for Android

At AVG we’re determined to keep listening to your feedback and improve our products. This week, we’re releasing an update to AVG AntiVirus for Android which we believe will give users a fresh new experience.


Anti-Theft Password Recovery

One of the most popular features in the existing version of AVG AntiVirus for Android is the Anti-Theft Password. Our users love the extra security that AVG provides by adding an extra security should their device be lost or stolen.

Password Recovery

In the latest version, we’ve introduced a password recovery option to help users that may have forgotten their Anti-Theft password. This will help them secure their device with a minimum of stress.


Improved scanning experience

The main priority for any security app is to keep you safe and inform you of any threats on your device. That’s why we’ve revamped our scanning experience so that you can understand at a glance what we have found on your device.

What’s more, with our on the fly results, you don’t have to wait until the end of a scan to see any issues.
