Contact information. Calendars. Text messages. Email. Usernames. Passwords. Your life is on your mobile device. Norton Mobile Security gives you the power to protect it.
Norton Mobile Security lets you remotely lock your phone, erase your personal information stored on it, and instantly locate it, all with a simple text message. So, if your phone is lost or stolen, you can find it fast and not worry about cybercriminals running up your bill or using your private information to steal your identity or hard-earned money. It even automatically locks your phone if its SIM card is removed, so if thieves try to use it with another SIM card, they're out of luck.
Tired of being harassed by unwanted calls and texts? Norton Mobile Security helps protect your privacy - and your sanity - by letting you block calls and texts from specific phone numbers.
When it comes to viruses and other threats, your phone or tablet can be just as vulnerable to attack as your computer. Norton Mobile Security detects and eliminates mobile threats before they can infect your mobile device. It automatically scans all apps and app updates that you download. It blocks fraudulent "phishing" websites set up to steal your personal information. It even gives you the option of automatically scanning SD (Secure Digital) memory cards for threats when you plug them into your device. Weekly updates help ensure you have the most up-to-date protection. And, it only sends updates to your phone when you're in your home service area, so you won't have to pay unnecessary roaming charges.
