+nitin jain You have to enter avast! Anti Thief settings and turn it on there. Also I think it's option for premium members only.

Una pregunta que avece me hace diferenciar de los demás antivirus. que avast tiene anti -theft como aplicación independiente y me gustaría que fuera unificada el avast con avast anti-theft para no descargar aplicaciones de mas ya que consumen mas RAM

The "enter your pin" screen should be redesigned and removes the "done" button as it is redundant because if the pin entered correctly it accepts immediately. And the user should be reminded to go premium before using app locking to lock more apps, as they might have no idea thay free user can only lock 2 apps.

And material design UI, since other apps also uses this new UI.

About this community

Welcome to Beta testers community! To become an Avast beta tester (if you aren't one already): 1. Join this community here on Google+ 2. Click on the Avast Mobile Security (Beta) link below 3. Click BECOME BETA TESTER 4. Download the beta version through Google Play on your device
 
I entered the a App management function in AMS and after it I proceeded to settings screen of my tablet. When I have done what I was doing I cleaned the recent used applications, as always, and it killed the avast! process. AMS did not reboot by itself. It can be a really big problem that make unexperienced users susceptible for hackers' attacks.
My device is Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 from 2012 with official, not rooted Android 4.4.2.

Yes, +Bachtiar Ilham Widayanto​. I was suprised too but it happened.

Before testing the beta, I had issues with the app-locker popping up, requesting the code, while I was using the app I had protected, like Google Play. This happened every 20 secs. Soooo annoying! After reporting this, I got invited to beta, which has been working just fine.
But... the app-locker is now popping up when launching apps that are NOT protected by it, probably because said apps are checking for updates upon launch, and with Google Play protected it will require a code. Is there a way to fix this? To let unprotected apps check for updates without app locker interfering?

Why is the scanner reading same files again and again? There are no observers anymore?

Just a suggestion: it MAY be that the virus copied infected files to subfolders. By using many many levels of folders, with identical (and infected) code, it may trick a badly written program to skip the next file(s). I've seen this at work on pc's, so it may be the same here. As you can see, your path isn't completely shown: you can only see that it's scanning in a folder starting with 'ma...' and the last four folders named '. 0'.
I've seen shortened down paths on my devices too (but never had a pup, trojan or virus so far). Can you guys make a 'click-to-reveal-full-path-thingy'? Could be useful...

Hi, unfortunately this issue is still in queue..
Add a comment...
 
I saw something very intresting a few minutes ago. I was reading the Google Newstand while avast! was stoped ("Unfortunately AMS was stoped") and relaunched without any reason. I didn't opened the AMS app since yesterday. I'm on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2012 with official Android 4.4.
