Avira Antivirus Security 2018
by: AVIRA • 494K
Avira Antivirus Security is a feature-packed antivirus utility for your mobile device. Protect yourself from malware, viruses, and other bad guys. There is a convenient web portal and other options you would not normally find in an antivirus utility. If you're a security-minded individual looking for a wealth of features, Avira may be for you.
The user interface has a clean design, with large, easily readable fonts and intuitive button placement. The number of security features in this app are impressive. The app consumes few resources and doesn't heat up your device. The web console is handy for managing multiple devices at once.
The block call function doesn't actually block the call, it sends the caller to voicemail. It froze once when trying to hit the 'skip tour' button.
