Title: False Avast apps on Windows Phone Store!!!
Post by: Spulci on August 02, 2015, 08:58:39 PM
Hi,

as all of us know, Avast has no products for Windows Phone. Someone is using its logo to promote a sort of scam application that Avast team should analyze and eventually ask Microsoft to remove. Please have a look at:

I didn't install that scam apps on my Lumia and I strongly advise every Windows phone user to avoid them while Avast team check them.

Glad to have helped Avast and its community to get rid of these fraudulent applications. As a Windows phone user I hope to see an Avast tool soon on this OS.

Thanks

Hi Spulci,
searching for an Avast application for my WindowsPhone 8.1 I just found your remark from last august: "As a Windows phone user I hope to see an Avast tool soon on this OS" - That's what I hope too!
But now it's 8 months later, so my question is: ¿Is there still no Avast app for WindowsPhone?
¿Or did you find a solution/alternative?
If not: ¿How could we persuade Avast to fill that hole?
Many thanks in advance for your answer!
Ciao

It hasn't changed that much at all, it is still a very small market share as mentioned in a reply to one of your other posts

Please don't make multiple posts asking the same thing, it just creates duplication of posts by those trying to help.
