AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the online security company for 177 million active users, today announced its mobile security app AVG AntiVirus FREE for Android has retained the position of no. 1 downloaded security application, making it the most popular free antivirus app available on the Google Play Store.

In a crowded growing market, AVG's success is testament to its product innovation, early prediction of mobile threats and becoming the first antivirus app available for the Google Playstore.

"The great success of AVG AntiVirus for Android™ FREE is that we are helping to protect millions of users around the world as they engage securely with the Internet through their smartphones.  It's the Android security app of choice," explains AVG VP of Mobile Omri Sigelman.
