  AVG Technologies Introduces AVG Uninstaller for Android™

 Latest AVG offering allows users to monitor and remove unwanted apps to free
                       up space and improve performance

AMSTERDAM & SAN FRANCISCO -- July 8, 2013

AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile
security, privacy and optimization solutions to 150 million active users, has
today announced that its AVG Uninstaller™ application is now available for
free for Android™ smartphones and tablets.

AVG Uninstaller enables users to monitor apps on their Android™ smartphones
and tablets according to their size, frequency of use, battery consumption and
mobile data usage and then use the information gathered to decide which
applications they might want to uninstall. Offering regular, proactive
notification on recommended apps to remove, AVG Uninstaller enables users to
decide quickly and easily how to free up space for new apps and help improve
their device’s performance - all without having to go through multiple Android
OS tasks to delete each app individually.

“With recent studies showing that as much as 82% of consumers’ mobile time is
being spent on apps^i, it’s clear that we all love to download these programs,
but there are inevitably some apps that we use once then totally forget about.
While this doesn’t seem like an immediate problem, having these unused apps
running in the background can have a draining effect on our devices,
particularly on their limited storage memory, but also on battery power and
mobile data - all of which can ultimately hinder overall performance,” said
Yuval Ben-Itzhak, Chief Technology Officer at AVG Technologies. “In
particular, frequent app users or those with only a small amount of memory on
their devices can quickly find themselves running out of space, or becoming
frustrated by potentially sluggish performance. AVG Uninstaller for Android™
helps to solve this problem by enabling users to analyze their application use
and then de-clutter their devices without fuss, so that they can free up space
for the latest app releases that they really want.”

AVG Uninstaller builds upon an existing mobile presence from AVG Technologies,
which provides award-winning AVG mobile solutions to millions of users
worldwide. Following the recent releases of AVG Cleaner, AVG Image Shrinker
and AVG TuneUp™, AVG Uninstaller adds to a suite of mobile products all
designed to help improve device performance.
