hi, thank you for letting us know and sorry for your inconvenience. Even though we are actively analyzing this issue for a long time and we still have not found any evidence that those enormous data consumptions are caused by Avast apps. We believe users that Android says them information like the on picture RCGators shared with us, but we doubt that amount data was actually consumed by Battery Saver. However we are still on this trying to find a reason, it could be a bug in some component provided by Google.

I'm having the same problem.  It's used 2GB of data in just about a week.  I thought it was just the ads, but it's still been doing it.  Attached are data usage, Battery Saver about screen, and phone about screen.

Avast Battery Saver used 1.90 Gb on our AT&T network and 8.41 Gb over our WiFi over one month. We've had Avast installed for quite a while with no issues until today. Can anyone provide an answer for this occurring? Screenshots to follow.
