Title: avast apps not mentioned on this site
Post by: hubse20 on October 07, 2015, 03:17:56 PM
hello

in the past, my avast virus scanner informed me about mobile phone apps. when I searched for them in the app store, I found close to nothing (which is weird, since you are advertising them).

so now I found this nice article about avast complaining about the situation with fraudulent apps in the windows phone store.

and I searched for avast, since I knew, you were advertising them (just with the text "für Ihr telefon", not mentioning any OS-restrictions). and I found them.

fantastic avast security and new avast security by cheruiyot Dennis, and advanced avast 2015 by ngetich walter.

these apps are not mentioned here. are those apps betas or other apps, and which app is the real one (you do have an app in that store do you? sind you are advertising it).

how are cheruiyot dennis and ngetich walter related to avast? (otherwise they wouldn't be allowed to use the avast logo), and are the apps even doing what they pretend to do?

I'm looking forward hearing from you.

Hi hubse20, I can confirm - these apps are fakes, but thanks for letting us know - it seems some new ones with our logo have been added to the Windows Phone Store, so I will forward this message to the colleagues concerned.

Hi Tereza, I already informed Filip a few days ago which resulted in the following blog post.
