False malware warning from antivirus apps

Follow

If you are getting a malware warning for DigiCal, do not panic. It is a FALSE accusation. DigiCal is safe to use and it does not contain any malware or virus!

DigiCal has more than 4.5 million downloads, a 4.3 rating on Google Play and we proudly carry the Top Developer Badge from Google Play Store. As stated on the Google Play Android Developers website

Top Developer is a badge recognizing established, respected developers for their commitment to launching high-quality and innovative apps on Android. The Google Play editorial staff awards a Top Developer badge from time-to-time based on the cumulative work of the developer.

The Top Developer badge appears next to the developer name wherever it is displayed in Google Play. The badge means long-term recognition of all of the developer’s apps. It signifies an additional level of trust and confidence users have in a developer’s products. 

 

 

We use advanced encryption security to protect our source code from hackers, so that explains why some automated antivirus software flag us with a warning.

Please don't believe those antivirus programs, most of them are not reliable at all or can even be harmful for your own device. Always check their download count, rating and reviews from other users before installing those antivirus apps. Many of these antivirus software try to scare their users with warning of malware and then proceed to ask you to buy the premium version to "protect your device".

We are currently reaching out to Avast, AVG to make sure that their software won't give false positive warnings anymore for DigiCal. 

---- 

Since DigiCal version 0.8.2, users that have installed AVG antivirus have been getting a malware warning for DigiCal.

The malware warning you're getting from the AVG virus scanner is false. We've contacted AVG about this issue, and they have confirmed that it is a wrong flagging and that it should not occur.
