    "A good solution for maximum online privacy that uses Tor for encrypted browsing. It's kind of slow and will eat up a lot of resources, including your bandwith. But, if you need a high level of privacy, this is a very good option. "

    "Ever since I was made aware that we need good antivirus protection on our mobile devices too, I've never thought twice about using Avast mobile! I use them on my pc so why not on my phone? They're the best out there, lightweight, tons of features, and really catch a ton of stuff! Avast has different features too, from find your phone if it is lost to anti-tracking tech built in to anti-virus and spyware locating and removal and even a firewall! I'm so glad I installed avast on my phone just like on my pc because now I can rest easy knowing it'll be harder for people to track my activities or spy on my phone!"
