Last month I purchased 2 extra installs of KIS as part of my annual renewal. This was in anticipation of purchasing two smart phones.

When I started the recently purchased (two) Sony Xperia XA2 (other s’phones are available! :wink: (one for me one for wife) I found AVG already installed. My questions are :-

If I install KIS for Android will it overwrite AVG?

Will KIS conflict with AVG and give me false positives / poor protection?

Is the best method of install to:- Force Stop & Disable AVG and then install KIS for Android?

Leave the phone alone and put up with AVG? :disappointed_relieved:

Hello  @wgcuser,

Welcome back!

:radioactive: AVG is explicitly defined as an incompatible software for Windows KIS, unfortunately, there’s no Android KIS incompatible software published documentation, however, given the core functions of the products, imo, it would be unwise to try to use both:radioactive:

  • Software conflicts can cause degraded performance and improper functioning.

If AVG can be uninstalled, I suggest to prepare both phones by doing that before installing and activating KIS. 

You may wish to confirm this with Kaspersky Technical Support.

Thank you.
