Hi, this sync is used only for data sharing among different Avast apps within one device, but it is always disabled. Just compare with other apps on the list (for example tap on Google - when the sync is active, you can find the day and time of the last sync).

It is enable now, and there are only 2 option for setting : Sync now and Remove account. 

Once I click Remove account, it pops up following message:

Removing this account will delete all of its messages, contacts and other data from the phone!
Click next for Remove account? it shows another following message:

This account is required y some apps.  You can only remove it by resetting the phone to factory defaults (which delete all your personal data) in Setting > Backup & reset.

Furthermore, the verification code is too difficult to be seen, please improve the image.

Do you have any suggestions on how to disable App Data Sync without factory reset?
Thank you very much for any suggestions :>

There is a very good reason for the captcha.
It really helps a lot to keep spammers away from this webboard.
It is only there the first three posts.

What tools from avast do you have installed and what versions ? (not only version number, also if they are free or pro)

Hi, the only way to delete the account from Data Sync list is to uninstall all Avast apps from your device.

I would like to know on whether the following Apps are genuine from Avast or not.  If it does not allow to STOP on data sharing among different Avast apps within one device, when I download from Google Play again, would it solve the problem?

Antivirus & Security by Avast Software (4.5) under Google Play - Avast Mobile Security (Version 5.8.1)
Avast Cleanup & Junk Cleaner by Avast Software (4.5) under Google Play -  Avast Cleanup (Version 2.6.0)

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks, to everyone very much for any suggestions :>
