AVG has recently extended its relationship with Yandex, Russia’s leading Internet search provider and is now giving away free licences of its Android antivirus : Antivirus Pro v3.3. These licences are perpetual, meaning, you will have the premium antivirus forever – the licence does not have an expiry date.
With this antivirus you can scan everything on your phone in real time, kill tasks, browse web safely, monitor memory & battery usage, lock apps, backup apps, lock sim etc. It has also got anti-theft protection. You can see the list of features on Play Store or on the official site.
