** INTRODUCING: avast! Mobile Security 2 Beta **

Hi all,

We're glad to introduce new major version of the avast! Free Mobile Security. There wasn't a program update since April for a reason. We've worked hard to prepare bunch of new features. The most important one is the avast! Anti-Theft web portal integrated into the avast! Account which allows remote control of your device from a web browser.There are also other improvements like the Network Meter, avast! SiteCorrect, Real-time protection of executed apps, widget, slightly optimized UI for tablets and many more.

We are kicking off a public beta here. As we don't plan to put the beta product on the Google Play store, you'll have to watch this thread for updates. The avast! Mobile Security and avast! Anti-Theft APKs will be pinned here and are intended to be installed manually to your devices. The definitions database will be of course updated automatically.

New Features
avast! Anti-Theft web portal integrated into the avast! Account
Network Meter
avast! widget
Optimized UI for tablets
