Hi,

Avast Mobile Securty does not scan external storage. Only internal storage.

Hello.

Why are any MicroSD cards installed in the mobile not scanned?

Apps can be installed and run from the MicroSD card, so failing to scan the MicroSD card would appear to be a major omission.

Hi,

This feature is not supported at the moment and we plan on adding it in a future release.

Hello.

No excuse for not having the ability to scan inserted MicroSD cards now.

The equivalent products from Kaspersky and ESET can manage it!
