Another hot news is here! Few weeks after the announcement of the Avast Antivirus 2016 for Windows, Avast has released a beta version of Free Mobile Security 5.0 for Android. And it’s really beautiful.

The beta version is available completely for free to everyone interested. Go directly to download links (you actually need to join the Avast beta program), if you are not interested in details.

Avast Free Mobile Security 5.0 List of Changes and New Features

At the moment there is no official statement regarding the changes or new features. The only clear thing is the redesigned user interface. So you need to download and try it yourself.

  • [NEW] User Interface – Brand new user interface with the background and simplified navigation
  • We will add detailed list of changes and features later

Based on the discussion on Avast Mobile Beta community, some previous advanced features (like Firewall, Network Meter, rooted Anti-theft) has been removed while the app has been dramatically simplified. Sounds like a bad news for tech users, but great deal for common users.

My name is Paul and I love Avast since the Home Edition v4.8 (2008). I am recommending it to all my friends, but I realized they don't know how to use it. So I started this site in order to help others getting maximum from this awesome antivirus. Feel free to contact me via Facebook, comments below or this form.
