Hiew V.Y. from beautiful Kota Kinabalu in Malyasia wrote this winning #SecurityTip during Round 2 of the AVAST #SecurityTip contest.
First and foremost, I cover myself with Mobile Security & Antivirus. Like the old saying goes:
[A]lone in the dark,
[V]arious dangers lurks,
[A]ctive protective is a must,
[S]afety ensured by professionals,
[T]rust we can get from AVAST.
On steps I take personally, don’t ever click and access anything that I’m not certain about, and disbelief any vaguely unbelievable things.
Since AVAST is one of the most trusted mobile security apps with more than 50 million users, we decided to ask:
The first prize for best answer was a Nexus 4 smartphone and a 1-year license for avast! Mobile Premium, our new upgrade to avast! Free Mobile Security with premium anti-theft features. Congratulations to Hiew V.Y. for winning Round 2. Five participants also won a 1-year license for avast! Mobile Premium after asking their friends to vote for their tip. Congratulations to:
- Guylaine H. from Canada
- Ghazala N. from Pakistan
- Parag S. from India
- Muhammad T. from Pakistan
- Darshan S. from England

Today, we received an email from one of the four winners of last December’s Facebook game Member Gets Member. The object of the game was to introduce your friends to avast! Antivirus by inviting them to our Facebook page. When your friends liked our page, you earned points, and earned points gave you the chance to win a cool new Windows Surface tablet. That’s exactly what Micah, from the Philippines, did.
Attached here is my picture with the Microsoft Surface tablet. I am very thankful of having such reward. But not only that, I am very thankful also of using Avast as my antivirus because it’s very fine and does excellent performance for my devices. I hope you guys will still make such events or contests like this Member gets Member game and keep on giving such awards for those Avast supporters and users.
Thank you so much and more power!
