Description

Norton Mobile Security Description

Norton Mobile Security is a complete security solution for your Android, and iOS-based mobile device. It delivers the protection for your smartphone and tablet 24x7 against viruses, phishing and online threats as well as protection against theft or if your device is missing.

Norton's innovative Web Management allows you to quickly connect to your device via a website if it's lost or stolen. You can locate your devices on a map, lock them remotely and/or wipe all data that is stored on it if you suspect it might have fallen into the wrong hands.

Norton Mobile Security safeguards all the stuff that sits on your Android device or iPhone/iPad. If you suspect the device is stolen you can even block the SIM card remotely, so that no one can make calls from your number.

Not only you are being protected from thieves but also from online fraudsters that implement various tricks including launching fake phishing sites in order to hijack your personal information or credit card numbers. Norton Mobile Security protects your mobile device from such threats by detecting and blocking fraudulent websites you're about to visit.

Turn on Scream Alarm if you can't find your phone (did you leave it somewhere but don't remember where?) and if you still can't find it simply locate your phone on the map. If you suspect someone has stolen it and is using it lock it out immediately remotely and erase all data that's on it with just a single mouse click. You can even take a sneak peek using the built-in webcam to see who is using your device and contact the police to inform them about that person.

If your phone hasn't been stolen but you simply lost it and a genuine person found it you can try to contact them using a special message you can send directly onto the phone to make arrangements with that person.

With Norton Mobile Security you can easily transfer your address book contacts between devices by backing it up and then restoring it on another device.

Norton Mobile Security not only delivers protection from theft or if your device is missing, but it also scans all downloaded files and browsed websites for viruses, spyware, Trojan horses and other malware. It also delivers protection from spam text messages and voice calls - simply define a list of blocked numbers and spammer's won't be able to reach you anymore.

Norton Mobile Security comes with free 24x7 support from Norton staff, however you can try browsing our Norton Support Database if you have any trouble using Norton software.
