Mobile Antivirus Gains Top Score For Android
Avast! Free Mobile Security got a top malware detection ranking in in the new study from AV-Test, the independent testing organization.

"avast! Free Mobile Security is available for free, easy to use and has many features to protect your device. With its very good detection rate it is one of the best security products for your Android device,” stated Andreas Marx, CEO of AV-Test, in the report.

In a test that produced a wide range of detection results, avast! was one of only seven security apps out of the 41 tested which were able to stop more than 90% of the Android malware. A majority of the tested apps (24) detected less than 65% of the malicious malware.

“It’s an achievement to get a top rating from a professional organization such as AV-Test, it’s even better when this rating is supported by the experiences of thousands of users,” said Vince Steckler, CEO of AVAST Software.

avast! Free Mobile Security also has the single best user ranking on the official Android Market of the top malware-detecting apps. avast! scored a 4.7 star ranking out of a potential five out of the more than 19,400 user reviews submitted.
