Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Make AVG® your first download to keep your new NOOK® safe.

AVG AntiVirus PRO protects your NOOK by scanning apps and files for malware and viruses, and helps prevent you from visiting malicious websites when browsing the internet. Your NOOK is a powerful, internet-connected, mini-computer, and therefore at risk to the same predators and hackers that try to harm you when using a PC. AVG brings its 21 years experience in protecting PCs, Laptops,and mobile devices to help keep your NOOK safe too.
The following features work together to protect both your NOOK and your personal data:
App Scanner - Scans apps to help ensure that malware will not infect your NOOK. Run scans manually or set up automatic daily or weekly scans easily.
File Scanner - Scans for malware, spyware, viruses and lets you remove them with a simple click. It protects your NOOK while youre using your favorite apps, protecting your books, magazines, music and videos. Choose between running manual scans or automatic daily or weekly scans.
Safe Web Surfing- When using the browser on your NOOK, it is important that you visit only safe websites. AVG helps by using our LinkScanner® technology to check websites in real time and inform you of possible threats before you click on them. Youll be protected whether you are using a search engine, or typing a web address directly.

    Krista!

    Just wanted to tell everyone, when u open this app go to your bottom and press the circle with 3 lines in it then go to settings. You can choose what will or wont be protected. Run the scan, when finished hit that same circle and it gives details!

    How the heck do find the MENU/TOOLS/OPTION once installed?

    I've installed this and the scans were clean for the apps and content on my device. I would like to know how to access the menu/tools because when you tap on the screen even a double tap starts the scan again. The protection is supposedly running but I want to know this for sure and not just be presumptuious that it is. I have had my device for almost a year and I believe in protecting them when there is an option to do so. I never had a computer that was unprotected, had my motherboard not been defective I would be on a pc writing this review. AVG thank you for coming out with protection for mobile devices/tablets. :) If anyone spends any amount of time online, it is WITHOUT QUESTION EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO PROTECT DEVICES AND COMPUTERS FROM EVERY KNOWN VIRUS AND HACKER OUT THERE!!!! NOT DOING SO WHEN IT'S AVAILABLE IS CARELESS!!!

    Just buy it.

    All I know is that my nook was all screwed up, browser crashes, connectivity trouble,etc.

    5 bucks later it's fine. I figured out that if you press the settings button when the scan FINISHES you can click on log to see the results. Wish I knew that when I ran it the first time.

    All I get is zeros now.

    How about a way to test it?

    This is the first app I purchased.
    Kudos to these guys for offering a virus scanner for the Nook! The nonsense you read online that you don't need anti-virus software for a Nook is naive and absurd. If it runs software and connects online, it's not a question of if there are viruses for it, it's just a question of when.
    One suggestion that might silence some of the critics - back when anti-virus software was still a new thing in the pc world, there were a couple of text strings you could write to a file that would get picked up by the av software as a self-test. How about something like that for this app?

    No Good on Nook Tablet

    I purchased this program for two Nook Tablets. My Nook no longer is able to load an App for virus protection that was rightfully paid for. I tried loading another parties antivirus program only to find out BN software prevents the loading and use of other than BN products. Now, how do I protect my Nook and my data from viruses and other internet and email exposure? Please think twice before purchasing this program since apparently it no longer works on the very Tablet it was designed to protect.

    Not sure

    I got this app about a week ago. It says all of the scans are clear, but i would have liked some more detail. I dont know what will pop up if i had a virus or somethong though. So im thinking this is a good app, and its the only anti virus out there. So protect your nook and just get it, just in case.

    disappointing

    Not worth it. No feeling of security. It scans ...no choice of what apps or information other than a confirmation- which you "assume" it is protecting YOU. Only information you receive is that scan completed & "matters resolved". If your looking to find products that you consider detrimental to privacy... not the app

    Finally

    Seems to work just like on a regular computer. Does not take long to scan, maybe a minute or two.

    Pro Version?

    Is this REALLY the "Pro" version?

    According to the AVG site this Nook version features are MUCH more similar to the free version -- does NOT have most of features of the "AVG Pro" on the AVG' s website!! LOOK for yourself. Hence my reason for two stars rating.

    But B&N not offering any of the other AV's for Nook users so we're STUCK with this or NO AV at all. :-(

    Good app

    I got this app because before I had it my Nook Tablet had just started to act weird. After I got it, my Nook Tablet came back to its old healthy self. Really, this app is worth 5 bucks.

    What if?

    This app gives so little feedback it has me woundering, what if its not doing anything other than pretending to run a scan and then tells you everything is fine. Had my nook color a year before this cam out no trouble then, none now. I think this app is a scam and see no need for it. Use the nook for what it is and use you pc for banking and purchasing.

    This app works great so far on my NOOK HD+.   HELPFUL INFO:  Onc

    This app works great so far on my NOOK HD+.   HELPFUL INFO:  Once the initial scan was done, I clicked on one of the three words at the top of the screen.   They are three buttons with blue bars under the words.  PROTECTION / PERFORMANCE / PRIVACY.   If you click on them you can get more information.  For example:  the PROTECTION button is where the first scan is and where you start out.   The PERFORMANCE button  will tell you about data and battery usage, etc…  BE VERY CAREFUL when clicking on PRIVACY button because there is a place where you can delete not just data, but SD card, and go back to factory settings.  If you are careful, and not randomly clicking, this app is great. It tells you a lot about your Nook, has an additional password for apps, and good security protection. Better safe than sorry in my book. Hope this helps.
