Need help w/ Avast! Mobile and False PUP
« on: July 28, 2013, 06:00:25 PM »
Greetings,

I have a Galaxy S4 (AT&T) and have installed Wheres My Droid.  When i open the app, i get an avast popup that reads as follows:
     -  Where's My Droid is a potentially unwanted program (Android:Walien-H [PUP]).

Since there is no app whitelist (yet) for Avast mobile, im either forced to disable Avast all together (NOT what i want to do), or choose "allow for 15 minutes" (which would be pointless after 15 minutes obviously).

Can you please add the above PUP to the safe / whitelist on a future update?

You can just turn off PUP detection.
