AVG has announced that it has extended its relationship with Yandex, a Russian Internet search provider.

Owners of Android devices who download AVG AntiVirus PRO v3.3 for Android before the end of 2013 from the Yandex.Store will receive a perpetual license for free to help keep their Android device ‘protected and optimized.’

Yandex.Store is one of the largest alternative applications stores for Android devices with more than 50,000 apps available to users worldwide.

"The rapid uptake of connected mobile devices has created a valuable channel for cybercriminals to reach unsuspecting consumers.We’re delighted to work with Yandex to bring mobile security to its customers, helping them to feel safe online, no matter what device they are using," said Omri Sigelman, AVG Technologies.

"The AVG AntiVirus PRO v3.3 for Android™ app delivers powerful tools, ranging from real-time app scanning to privacy controls and battery tune-ups, to help protect users while improving the performance of their Android device."

AVG AntiVirus offers multiple features, including a remote SIM lock, camera trap, app scanner and a file scanner. Check out my top 10 list of apps on my Nexus 7 for my security advice.
