We (avast forum members) don't know right now, it is being discussed in another section of the forums.

There are a number of other avast products, including the avast anti-theft found there when I thought that this was an integral part of the avast mobile security program.
WinXP ProSP3/ Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ avast! free 18.5.2342/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
Windows 10 Home 1909 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 19.8.2393 (build 19.8.4793.541) UI-1.0.415/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ WinPatrol+/

The topic is in a forum part not available for you.
But so far we don't have a clue, nor do we have a reaction from Avast.

Well, you make it sound like something fishy is going on considering that you emphasize that it is a forum where nobody but uberevangelist and avast employees can view.

I certainly hope they didn't get caught with their pants down.

Charyb :)

I was the topic starter, and I choosed to start the topic in that forum part for the simple reason Asyn and me were not sure what was going on.
There is really nothing "fishy" about it.

Can you please tell when approximately the missing apps will be available again on Google Store.

Thanks for being concerned about Avast Mobile Security and Avast Cleanup, everyone. I'm sorry that you were left in the dark about this and had to speculate about what's happening.

Mobile team members were notified on Saturday that there were some issues that needed to be addressed, and it took a little while for them to coordinate since it was the weekend and some folks are on vacation. At this time, we don't have any other details except that they assured us that they are working now and hope to have it restored very soon.

I'll update you as we hear more.
