Most Android device users know that they need some sort of protection on their device to prevent malware and viruses from taking over. One of the popular options when it comes to free protection for Android smartphones, tablets, and other devices comes from AVG. Specifically, the AVG AntiVirus Free for Android application is a popular choice.
AVG Technologies has announced that its flagship free mobile product has been downloaded more than 70 million times via Google Play. AVG says that this is the first time that the feat has been accomplished by any security application. AVG also notes that it was the first company to provide a free security application for Android devices.
AVG also offered an update to its free protection application during Mobile World Congress 2013. That update brought new features and enhancements to the application. AVG also recently launched its new AVG TuneUp for Android application.
We spent hands-on time with that TuneUp application earlier this month. During our hands-on time, we liked the application and felt like it definitely had promise. However, we also believed that it might not be as robust as advanced users would like.
