Unfortunately, I changed sim card when I returned back home. I appears my Anti Theft app kicked in and it required a logon passworld. I think after a couple of unsuccessful attempts my phone has been locked and I cannot even enter a password should l receive it again.

Desparately need to reconnect with my phone.  I did try and phone AVG but did not have much luck. Hopefully this will work and my problem will be solved soon.

I am using HTC one, i would like to unlock anti theft from my phone. Today morning i changed my sim card and now my phone is asking for the anti theft password which i do not remember. I tried a lot but couldn't figure it out. More over i did not receive any mail to my inbox regarding the password. SO could you please help me out from this. I do not want to loose my data. All i need now is to unlock my phone with a new password. I tried changing may password online and other stuffs. But all i get is a negative result.

Hi Inge,
You can unlock phone using web interface (https://www.avgmobilation.com/).
Please make sure your phone is connected to internet (wifi since new sim is not working).

Hi Alarm Clock Xtreme Developer

Is now not the time to change the GUI of Alarm Clock Xtreme?
I love the alarm clock it is the best function alarm clock.
But the GUI is no longer the year 2014.
Is it possible to update the GUI?
Like the App "Timely"?
Play-Store Link:

This point can make this product better
- Add a "+" status bar for make a quick alert
- Set a now alarm in 2-3 clicks
- Set the time fast like the Timely app

Thanks for a feedback.

Best Regards
Jan from Switzerland

I have two devices with anti-theft. One, a phone, is locked out because I changed the SIM card. It =>won't<= connect to the Internet, because it has a WiFi and 3G problems that I do not understand. 

I do not remember the anti-theft password.

The other device, a WiFi tablet, IS connected to the Internet and is running fine. It has the same anti-theft password, 

=> How can I see the anti-theft password on the tablet without changing it? <=

P.S. That would be a very basic feature, so that I can write it down and keep it in a safe place. If it does not exist, and I think it does not, then should take this product off the market. It is not ready for a mass market. Also your support is too slow. I have PRO service on the phone, but I have heard nothing for hours.

Unfortunately, lose/forgot phone is easy a lot of people doesn't use any password on lock screen.
Google account is logged in, any one would have access to that password.

I've just installed AVG Zen on all our home Andriod phones and tablets as we have AVG products installed. However, every time someone on any device does something EVERYONE gets a status update pop-up on their phone....very annoying. My wife wants Zen uninstalled because she's fed up with the pointless updates (its of no concern to her of my status of my phone on hers). I've gone through the Help and Settings but there seems to be no way of switching off the status updates apart from uninstalling Zen on the devices.

Hi Alan,

The AVG Zen is for the administrator only - to see the notifications - in this case I gues it's you. On your wife's device just download the AVG for Android or AVG Cleaner - no AVG Zen - and join those apps to the Zen network. This way only you will receive the notifications and only you will be able to manage other's devices. Your wife will have a peace in mind, not receiving notifications but knowing that you are taking care of her device.

Please let me know if you have any other concerns or questions.

Have a good day,

I've got an issue with AVG since I have it installed. It works well and all, scans the device regularly and when new apps and installed, the widget works, etc. The issue is, I can't start the main app manually. Whenever I do it, it gets stuck on this screen: http://i.imgur.com/x2wyXRW.png (http://i.imgur.com/x2wyXRW.png" target="_blank) . Nothing happens, until after a minute where Android tells me the app doesn't respond; I can then either kill it or wait (which does nothing).

The only way to make the app wok again is to kill all background processes; if I start it again, it launches correctly, but if I close it and try to open it again, it goes back to getting stuck.

My configuration:
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
Android 4.2.2
Not rooted

I've tried reinstalling, and I've searched for similar issues but found nohing. Any idea how I can solve that?

Thank you.

Hi Thibaut,
Please make sure you have latest version.
If you are able to run AVG even after killing all background processes please contact us as Alan suggested.
