Sorry - nothing to see here.

There may be several reasons:
The app you’re looking for doesn't exist
or
the app developer is not currently running a test
or
you are not eligible to participate in the testing program.
If you received the link to this page from someone, we recommend you contact them for more information.
===========================

That's what I see upon clicking the link posted on FB.

It looks great and it seems to be running fine. If I am already a premium member will you be issuing a credit for the amount of a year's subscription?

I think you'll receive a voucher for one year. What you'll do with it is up to you.

The new UI is definitely much better than the previous one.
Can you update the PIN Lock prompt UI to reflect the new minimalistic design as well? Additionally, can there be a way to say disable PIN prompt for the next 5 minutes? Useful if I am doing the setup for anti-theft and the screen goes to sleep.
Add functionality to lock apps only when not connected to somethinkg like your home wifi network or car bluetooth?

I understand what you are saying but how will that work if you have say a discounted fee which is renewable by Google play?

Put yesterday. Everything works fine so far. The only section app locking can not enter codepoint- drop-down menu button without inscriptions./Поставил вчера. Всё работает пока нормально. Единственно, в разделе app locking невозможно ввести код- в выпадающем меню кнопки без надписей.

Been a long time avast user both on my laptop and on my Android phone. Installed the latest beta update today. The new UI is quite nice have to get used to it (to the new settings and new layout) but yes definitely better than before.  But I would like to suggest to stick to android's new materialistic design in the future and please make some UI changes to lock screen it seems to be age old themed one. Best wishes

Finally a fresh good UI. Was waiting for this for a long time. Everything looks good and working fine except 2 things. Don't know if it's just me facing slow app scanning rate than previous version, this beta version taking quite a bit long time for same amount of apps scanning.
And the 2nd problem is previous stable avast mobile security took just 13 to 16 MB ram, but now it's taking 67 to 75 MB ram usage. Plz take a look on this matter. Rest everything is working fine. Thanks.  :)
