    try right clicking it and see if you can uninistall it. or you can go to your apps in settings and uninstall it from there. finally, you can find it in the play store and uninstall it.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Was Avast preinstalled, or did you install it?

    They were caught data-mining, but supposedly shut that off: https://www.theverge.com/2020/1/30/2...-ceo-blog-post. I still wouldn't trust them entirely, and besides, antivirus on Android is largely unnecessary, assuming you install your apps from trusted sources like the Play Store, and don't frequent shady websites or install shady apps.

    yea, avast only said they shutdown jumpstart. they never really said they stopped data collecting using other sources. IMO, they were once one of the best antiviruses for windows. easy to use, only had to put up with an ad when opening but they lost their way. I will no longer use any of their products, including ccleaner.

    You might have to go in settings then device administrator to deactivate it then uninstall
