AVG for Android has not updated in a few days, it has remained on 82090669. Selecting 'Update Now', tells me that it has the latest updates installed.

Quote from FAQ's for Android....

What is Update Now?

Update Now lets you perform a manual update of the AVG AntiVirus for Android security signatures. If there are no updates available, you will be notified that the latest updates are installed.

AVG AntiVirus for Android will download automatically the latest security signature DB every 24-48 hours.

Yes, I am aware of that. I check AVG daily to see if it has updated the definitions and the file number has remained the same for the past four days.

Shouldn't the definitions be updated at least once a day?

followup to AVG not updated..

A) The answer given does not make me feel very safe, and
B) the original post said "AVG for Android ... has remained on 82090669." I dont see any number anything like that. Under Protection - Update Now, mine says "version 3.2.1.179161" The 3.2.1 matches the Google Play store version - is the 179161 the virus DB version, or something like an app build number, or ??? if it's not the virus DB version - is that visible somewhere?

Hi Dan,

I dont see any number anything like that. Under Protection - Update Now, mine says "version 3.2.1.179161" The 3.2.1 matches the Google Play store version - is the 179161 the virus DB version, or something like an app build number, or ???

The 3.2.1 is the application build and the following number is Virus Database version. The Virus Database version may vary due to this issue.

Thanks

Free version update service stopped?..

I'm using AVG antivirus free version for android.

I run update menu everyday.

But database version is always 96657730.

Database version is always same within for two weeks ago.

Is the database update service stopped for free version?

Hi SteavePark,

Updates are still running in the background but displayed database version number is not changing due to the bug. Devs are already working on a fix.

Thanks

Data size is always same...

Is that true?

But data size is always 6.12MB.

Does not use network when scanning.

It doesn't look like cloud scan neither.

AVG doesn't make me feel safe.

I think maybe the reason why is that database has updated very very little bit.

What's the truth?

Hi SteavePark,

Size of the data part should be changing... mine is for example 2.62MB and cache is on 5.57MB at the moment (I've checked it with my colleague and his data are at 8.01MB). You may try clearing cache and data to see whether they are changing through the time.

AVG for Android does not have any cloud scanning feature... however I just might have got you wrong. Could you describe in more details what you've meant?

Thanks.
