Hi all,
it's my pleasure to announce that we released public Beta version of Anti-Theft 4.0!

Now it's available through beta link: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.avast.android.at_play.

Click the "BECOME A BETA TESTER" button. Anti-Theft will automatically update itself (if not, please wait an hour or so).

Once you receive the update, I’d love it if you could share your thoughts about the app here in our community.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since new version is NOT compatible (for many reasons) with previous version, all your settings will be lost! Please consider this before you upgrade.

If you have installed previous Beta version, please uninstall it/wipe app data and delete device on my.avast.com account. Otherwise it may not work properly (bad communication with device,..)

Looking forward for your feedback!

+Tomáš Heřmanský​ My nexus 7v2 is 'stuck' at v3.1.7863 while nexus 5 got updated to v4. Uninstalling still only shows v3 as latest version. Also wondering if a root enabled version will be offered.

+Tomáš Flek​ Yes I have something, this time for anti virus: I get a notification every few hours, that the smart scan is done and that I should have a look at the report.
First: why do I get this every few hours.
Second: how can I disable this notification?

The app should only notify me, when there is a issue and not if everything is fine.

I have submitted my suggestion to avast but none of them is used I asked for simple avast widget showing all parameters of phone and 1 tap key to perform task from avast apps that we use. Sd card scan is also missing

Hi +nishant jarial , thanks for your suggestions! Some of them are planned (like widget), some of them (SD card scanning) are in current situation not worth for implementation, because it's required by only small portion of users. However, I appreciate every feedback and every feature request we are considering. Thank you!

N5 is rooted but root access want enabled yet for AVAST mobile, N7v2 rooted too but works there. Looks like I wasn't the only one with an issue. https://plus.google.com/104182815976376324712/posts/R3VdsuNnZko (anti theft). Reinstalling didn't work initially, then cleared account data and back up and running (for now) Android 6.0.1 MOB30D (language NL) so there's definitely an issue.

I really like the new standarized look and feel, but is it possible to have only one icon shown?
As if I was installing different modules for a single major app. (something similar to Microsoft Office, SAP, Orace)

+Štěpán Vaněk  Yeah, e.g. have the option in the avast antivirus app to do a grouping which would hide the other avast apps (something like for antitheft that it hides itself) e.g. battery, wifi finder, clean up

Can't get Avast Anti-Theft to open on my Samsung Galaxy S5 running on VRToxin MM rom. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but just keep getting the message that the app has stopped when I try to open it. Permissions seem ok so I'd be interested in any other suggestions. Cheers

OK I know that I should've taken a screen shot with this, but for some reason on my new Galaxy S7 each time that I turn it on at a friends house it keeps reading the WiFi as bad. Now I either reset the phone, or turn the WiFi off and on and everything reads normal again, any idea what in the world is causing this, or is it like one of my other apps and that Avast hasn't caught up to the S7 yet?

Another thing, I just checked the Avast site for my account (considering that I was going to take my S5 off since I no longer have it, had to nuke it and give it back when I upgraded early to the S7) and it's saying that my S7 doesn't have the main anti-virus app on the phone even though it's there.
