AVG Security Unlimited is gone, where should I look for new

I've contacted AVG as my protection for my 2 tablets and 2 phones has been reduced to the free product with ads. I cannot get past their screen that tells me to upgrade to their new version.
My current subscription of full protection for all devices has not expired and yet the response from AVG says they no longer offer the product, do not support ZEN which linked all the devices and basically I'm up the creek.
Can anyone recommend a new reliable security system for android that covers all devices with one account?
Is AVG legally able to withdraw coverage they contracted with me, especially without notification?

I've had Android things for about 7 years.

And never encountered anything that I would need protection from. Not a single virus or trojan. Can you share why I would consider anything for my Android devices today?

There are companies that in my opinion scare folk into more protection where none was needed.

Hi KATdiamond -- if your AVG subscription has not yet expired, you should still be able to use your software. Did you have an AVG Ultimate subscription? Are you able to activate the mobile apps (e.g. AVG Antivirus on Android) by signing in to your MyAccount on the device?

Also, did you submit a ticket to our support team already? If so, please email us at avg-team@avg.com with the information from the ticket and to whom you spoke with and we will investigate for you. If not, you can contact support here: https://support.avg.com/choose_support?l=en
