Avast on Android
Avast on Android brings the skin of the Windows program to the mobile device, and includes a combination of traditional security features with mobile-specific options.
Mobile malware scan
Like many competitors, Avast scans new apps on the fly to make sure that they're safe for your Android.
Android in trouble?
Avast provides one-tap fixes for any detected malware threats.
The Avast Privacy Advisor lets you know which apps are giving permission to do what with your data and your connection, and it keeps it all organized.
Managing unruly apps
The app manager shows a list of running apps, their size, CPU load, used memory, number of services and threads, and an option to kill the app or uninstall it.
Firewall for root
Restricted to people with rooted devices is the firewall, which can disable Internet access on a per-app basis, just like a desktop firewall. You can customize the firewall's settings for each app to work with Wi-Fi, 3G, or data roaming.
Text message and call filtering are both available, along with a series of in-depth options. These include redirecting blocked calls to voice mail, or filtering based on a start and end time, or the day of the week. Outgoing calls can also be blocked, a clever tool so you can hand the phone over to a toddler without having to worry about annoying your contact list.
Scan on demand
Like its Windows counterpart, Avast for Android lets you scan on demand.
