Avast Mobile keeps on notifying me about applications scan !
« on: August 27, 2015, 12:52:28 PM »
Hi,

many times per day Avast Mobile notifies me about applications scan ! For exemple when I switch from mobile network to wireless network, I become a notification. I become many of those each day. Is this normal ?

I habe this problem on all my Android devices...

Thanks, Mambobuzzz

I've been getting the same message. "We scanned xxx items Next scan will be in 2 days." I expect next notification should be in 2 days, not 5 minutes. >:(

Any updates on this? I've been using Avast on P, Android, etc for years. This constant scan and message is annoying. Howeve, I am happy to have Avast protecting me (just don't keep reminding please)

Same here, I don't care that Avast scanned my a fraction of my apps and found nothing.  I want it to scan all of my phone and only notify me or pop something up when it finds a virus/malware or prevents one from infecting my phone.  I even went in and disabled notifications in the app and it still is popping up!

How about using auto scan feature? I mean you choose to scan your app whenever you want to. I think this will be solving your problem with the notif. CMIIW

Hi everyone, sorry for the delay.

You are right, there has been a bug, which came with the summer version 4.0.7891 and was fixed at the end of August (version 4.0.7894). It has helped majority of users, but we have noticed several cases where not even the latest updates (4.0.7897 and 4.0.7898) had any effect on these "immortal notifications".

If you want to investigate the issue, please contact us on android@avast.com, specifying what type of device, app and android version you have and whether your ROM has been modified in any way.

You can also try a simple trick, which usually helps, at least temporarily - change the language back and forth (for example from English to German and back to English).

The good news is that later this autumn we are going to have a new release, where the notifications are flawless. Thanks for your patience, Tereza from AMS Team

So as of October this was supposedly getting fixed. Its not and I still get the ever annoying we scanned... I would like it only to tell me when there is a problem. Not "i did my job and will do it again tomorrow" 20 times a day.
The 'fix' of switching languages from German to English didnt work.
Any other fixes?

Hi,

best would be to switch to the new beta version via this link https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.avast.android.mobilesecurity

Hi, what version? Have you tried to install the Beta as Filip advised?
The new version (AMS 5.0) has been released (updates gradually - to several thousands users a day), full roll-out is planned for the second half of January. The notifications are fixed there, thanks for your patience.

I've been getting this all along, for the last several months.  Lately it seems worse.  My version is 4.0.8139.  Is there a newer version that fixes the issue?
