It's awefully ironic that installing security/privacy protection software like Avast  requires one to compromise the very privacy they are trying to protect!       
Well, everything depends on what avast! do with the content of your messages which is nothing. You can trust your security vendor or you can't install a security program. Like Filip said, the Android architecture requires that.

Hi all,

for those that have concerns about permission usage of avast! Mobile Security and avast! Anti-Theft, we've now prepared a knowledge base article describing what we use the permissions for. I hope this helps all customers. If you have any questions feel free to post them here.

Hi,

it's working for me (maybe some temporary down time). Can you try again? Thanks.

Hi,

it forwards me here https://support3.avast.com/index.php?languageid=1&group=eng&_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=1252 Hmm, does simple support.avast.com load for you? I just tried on my mobile connection (which is outside company network) and it loads for me just fine.

Hi Filip, the problem is back, as the link leads to an empty FAQ.
I'd suggest to either update the FAQ or unsticky this thread.

Cheers,

Hi,

I'm not a mod anymore so can't really help you with that :(

Filip

Edit: To be clear, I'm kind of a half mod here, I can remove posts for example (I think), but can't edit them.
