I didn't think I needed a antivirus program on my Kindle. I decided to try this app and it did the job. One of my games was a problem. Eset got rid of it.

I have had ESET installed on hundreds of servers, PCs and laptops for the past 5 years. There is nothing better for preventing and containing viruses and malware. I highly recommend ESET protection in all its forms.

I tend to say that a good antivirus is the one that you don`t notice it`s there but keeps your device protected. This app works that way. It doesn`t bore you warning all time but you can check and see it`s working.

3.0 out of 5 stars POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, SO FAR January 8, 2014
Verified Purchase
I tried this for the trial period and was impressed with the app itself. When the free trial period was coming to a close, I gladly decided to pay the license fee. Th I s has NOT proven to be an easy thing to do. I went to the help page and followed the instructions, but for hours and hours the option I was directed to select was not available. Finally, it did show up. I have no idea if it was due to contacting their customer service or not, suddenly on the u umpteenth try of doing exactly the same thing, the option was just there. I did not realize that my troubles were just beginning.

I followed the instructions to purchase the license through Amazon. During this process, a message popped up from the app itself saying thst the process had failed and to try again later. No biggie, things happen and at least the option to make the purchase had finally appeared and I could eventually get the license. However, the purchase went through on the Amazon side.

I have contacted customer service at Avast several times, providing the Amazon order number, the price paid, the fact that Amazon had already given m e the free Amazon app "coins" offered for the purchase. I finally received a response that my concern had been received and I should of expect a "real" response within 24 hours or so.

This process has taken up much of 2 days. After providing a detailed description of the message received during the purchase process and all the info that could possibly be needed to confirm the purchase, I am still waiting hours and hours later.

The app itself has worked very well during the free trial period; the facility with which this app finds malware and marketing gimmicks is impressive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy this if you want your device locked up! January 21, 2014

Barely protected my Android tablet and then on top of it because I wanted to uninstall it, the app completely froze the tablet to where I cannot use it giving me a code that does not work (or even make any remote sense). Now I'm having to try 20 different steps just to get my tablet working again! DON'T WASTE MONEY OR TIME GETTING THIS APP!!!!
