The same threats that are a problem for PCs – viruses, malware and identity theft - are also threats to your mobile device.

AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android™ not only keeps your phone and private data safe from viruses and malware, it assists in recovering a lost or stolen mobile device and also helps you get your smartphone to run at optimal performance.

It is easy to use and works on all versions of Android OS, v2.1 onwards.

AVG AntiVirus PRO Widget

Our new widget allows immediate access to key features of the app directly from your home screen. You can easily customize the widget's four buttons from nine different useful tools of your choice.

Find and protect your phone if lost or stolen

Locate your phone, display an onscreen message to improve its chances of being returned, and keep your personal data safe by locking or wiping it.

You get: Phone Locator, Phone Locker, Camera Trap, Remote Wipe, SIM Lock

Phone Locator

Phone Locator helps you locate your phone quickly via Google Maps by having it send its location via GPS, which can be activated remotely from the Anti-Theft service. You can also enable the SHOUT function which maximizes the volume of your ring tone and also allows you to create a loud tone, even if your phone is on “Silent”, to help locate it with ease.

Phone Locker

Phone Locker makes it possible to keep outside parties from accessing your personal information by allowing you to lock your phone remotely via SMS or from controls managed from the Anti-Theft service. You can also create a customized lock screen message with your contact details to facilitate the safe return of your device.

Camera Trap

If Anti-Theft records 3 failed attempts by an intruder to unlock your phone, it takes a photo of them with the phone's front-facing camera. The photo is then emailed to you with an alert to the attempted break-in.

Remote Wipe

Remote Wipe helps preserve your privacy should your phone be lost or stolen by enabling you to wipe all contacts, photos, and calendars, as well as your text messages, browsing history and SD Card.

SIM Lock

Locks your phone when the SIM card is replaced.

Keep your most precious, most personal device safe

Safe web surfing

Safe web surfing actively checks web pages in real-time, at the only time it matters - before you land on that page. If it detects something suspicious, it prevents you from visiting the site.
