AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, February 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --



Versions boast an enhanced user interface, improved navigation and a number of additional features

AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security to 146 million active users, today announced its latest versions of AVG AntiVirus products for Android smartphones and tablets. Versions 3.1 of AVG AntiVirus FREE and PRO for both device types are now available for download from Google Play.

Aimed at offering the best protection possible for mobile devices combined with a real ease of use, a number of new features and enhancements can be found within each of the updated products:

- Both versions of AntiVirus FREE and PRO for Android Tablets (3.1.2) have a completely new user interface, with simplified menus, screens and settings adding to the products' look and feel and improving the ease of navigation.

- AVG AntiVirus FREE and PRO for Android™ both now include a Call & SMS Blocker feature which lets the user filter unwanted calls and text messages by building their own customized "black and white" phone lists. Using these lists, the user can set their mobile device to automatically reject incoming calls and text messages from certain numbers. Instead of ringing through, calls will be rejected, sent an SMS auto reply or switched to silent.

"Our customers are increasingly telling us that so much of their daily lives are now connected with their mobile devices, so we recognize the importance of constantly improving the protection available to them," said Omri Sigelman, VP of Mobile Sales for AVG Technologies. "With a range of different options available to customers we are showing that device protection needn't cost more than the device it is on or be overly complicated. No matter the budget, the main thing is that our customers feel confident that their devices will be able to support them in their busy digital lives."
