Description

Do you need security and Web protection for your devices? Yes, lookout! If you surf the web, log into email or use public Wifi, you are exposing your privacy and sensitive information (like passwords and browsing history) to online threats. Your devices carry a lot of information and may be at risk. Norton has an all-new security app which helps deliver powerful protection for your device and personal information against cyber threats and online scams. Norton Mobile Security notifies you when it’s time to take action. Help stop cybercriminals from stealing your passwords, bank account number or other personal information. ►Wifi Security - Uses advanced scans to help detect and notify you about unsecure Wifi networks, and those under attack by cybercriminals eavesdropping on your Wifi connection to steal or glean personal information from the web sites you visit or infecting your device with malware. ►Web Protection - Helps detect and safeguard you from navigation to scam and malicious websites when using your preferred browser, app, SMS, and Email. Helps keep your device clean from viruses and malware as well as privacy of your personal information secure by helping you avoid online scams. ►Device Security - Alerts you when your operating system (OS) is out of date, so you can take action to secure and protect your device against vulnerabilities that could allow cybercriminals to take control of it or steal your personal information. Our Wifi Security warnings are: ►Wifi Security Green: No suspicious activity detected. ►Wifi Security Orange: You’re connecting to an unsafe or unsecured network. We recommend using a VPN service like Norton Secure VPN to ensure your data privacy. ►Wifi Security Red: The network you’re connecting to is under a man-in-the-middle attack, where an unknown party on the same network is spying on your online activity. We highly recommend that you disconnect. Are there email scams for iPhone users? Yes. Your iPhone may fall victim to phishing or virus scams just like any other device. This is where you are asked to click on a link for various reasons and end up providing your personal information (like user names and passwords to your accounts) and inviting this way viruses and malware. This may occur through email or text messages. Are there risks with an outdated OS? Yes. An outdated OS can create vulnerabilities and opportunities for cybercriminals. By notifying you of the latest security patches and iOS updates, Norton Mobile Security helps you keep your operating system up to date – one of the best ways to stay secure from old vulnerabilities and exploits. ------------------------------ ►SUBSCRIPTION DETAILS •Norton Mobile Security Subscription: Delivers powerful protection against cyber threats and online scams. •30-day free trial requires activation of annual subscription. •Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. •Subscription will renew automatically at the end of the subscription term unless canceled.

  • Phone freeze and auto restart

    1
    By Brantleytj
    Used this APP for over 4 months. Initially worked fine without any issues. Started getting message on iPhone that my data have not been backed up to the cloud in two weeks. Manually started trying to backup to cloud. Would not backup. Phone started freezing and restarting by itself. Internet started to be slow when connecting using WiFi but was faster when using cellular service. Received backup error stating my internet speed was too slow for backup. Have 2 other iPhones and 3 iPads backing up fine using the same internet connection without any problems. Contacted Apple and Sprint Support for assistances. No luck in resolving issue. Started deleting all APPs to pinpoint if the freezing and restarting was an APP issue. Sure enough, after deleting the Norton Security APP, backup to the cloud, freezing and restarting is not an issue anymore.
  • Iphone 11 max crashing all day

    I’m a long time Norton subscriber. Early this year, I decided to install the app on my iphone 11 max, but my phone started to crash and reset by its own all day (dozens of times randomly during the day). So I removed the app and my phone went back to normal. Recently, I installed the app again, and same problem over and over. Phone crashing and resetting randomly throughout the day. Very frustrating because it happens during meetings, before that important call. But most surprisingly, is that other users are reporting the exact same issue, but I don’t see NORTON, doing any corrective actions and releasing a fix. SHAME ON YOU NORTON, your app is just useless!!!

    Makes iPhone useless. I’m getting only 10 sec of internet before app starts over, taking 3 minutes to restart, to only get another max on 10 seconds of internet use. Continuously cycling taking iPhone off the internet. Tech service useless to fix.

    I downloaded norton life lock for security and all it gives me are bugs. It slows my WiFi down and VPN takes forever to connect and somehow VPN is connected to the internet connection so I have to wait 5 minutes in the settings app and then it turns on! Also, I was trying to download a game from the App Store and IT WONT DOWNLOAD!! I also had a piano lesson but thanks to this I lost connection!

    Downloaded the app and signed up for the free trial. Screen won’t load beyond the pond of the sign up or login page. Even tried the restore purchase option on the bottom to try and activate it but it will say an error. Kind of disappointed.

  • Fake purchase

    By goodcatfishgame
    A purchase showed up on my Apple account that I did not make. After numerous attempts to sign in, a form popped up to report a problem. As soon as I saw that they asked for my SS#, a message from Norton popped up informing me it was an unsafe site. I spotted the problem, but it was great to know NortonLifeLock was right there too.

    By berzerkprincess
    At first, I loved the app. It was diligent in preventing me from going on to harmful sites. I have the Norton Anti-Virus subscription. However, the app keeps logging me out (it’s done it twice so far) and when it does, I will “check” a site it deemed harmful and it lets me on it. I do not trust this app due to this—even when I’m logged in. When I try to login again, it simply will not complete the process even though the information is correct. I am starting to think this app isn’t even worth the trouble, just like the VPN one.

    By Carey35209
    I put this app on my iPhone 8 and an older iPad. From then on whenever one of them is plugged in, it begins to reboot every few minutes. Because of this neither could update or run backups. On my phone I can disable the VPN and run a backup, and the phone can sometimes update anyway. Not always but sometimes. I like to plug in my iPad when I go to bed and listen to podcasts until I fall asleep. I also depend on the alarm on the iPad to wake me. On the iPad I cannot disable the VPN and could not use these features with a constant reboot going on so I uninstalled it altogether. The other issue is, this VPN does not let me choose where I want my location to appear to be. That seems to be one of the more useful features of a VPN. I have no idea why they wouldn’t offer that option.

  • Total shut down

    By pawpaw pete
    I initially gave this app a 5 star rating. Loved it and it worked well for several months. Then one day my iPhone Xr started shutting down on it’s own. It would be on the table next to my chair and the screen would go black and it had powered down, just as if I had turned it off myself. This has happened numerous times... overnight, while I was using it or when it was just sitting there doing nothing. I deleted the app and reloaded it. The problem stopped for a few days, then “out of the blue” it started powering down by itself again. It started out a couple times a day for a day or two, but it steadily got to be more often...up to several times a day, even while I was using it!...texting, phone call and just about anything else. I have deleted the app again and my phone is now working as it should... I will not reload the app unless this issue is resolved and I hope it is, because, except for the shutting down, I love the safety of the app.
  • VPN

    By DAM Grape
    The program works really well for the most part. However, the VPN causes problems. When it’s activated, and I go on the internet, my internet won’t stop buffering. I can’t move around easily because of it. I have to turn it off. This brings another problem. When I turn my VPN off in my settings, it always automatically comes back on and messes up my engine. I go to every place that the VPN option is and turn it off manually, but it still pops on. I’m thinking of deleting this app.

  • Don’t install on IPhone 11

    By gjgeiser
    The web protection and/or VPN prevented backups. After 7 weeks of not being able to backup my phone to the ICloud I decided to try to turn off Norton and the backup finally finished. Also it seemed to shut my phone down randomly. After turning off those features, no random shutdown. This was on an IPhone 11 with the latest updates.

  • Slow

    By USAF RET
    I wouldn’t recommend, slow to connect, blocks most streaming apps including Netflix. Slow down internet speed. Using your bank’s app will provide more than enough security for on-line transactions. Don’t wast your money
  • Useless.

    By 41t3r
    The app does nothing: It says “Scanning” and it’s been forever. Scanning message stays forever, does not change, does not disappear, and looks like it is not even scanning anything, looks like just a banner, a picture. Frozen. Dead. Everything I tried (including reinstalling the app) did not resolve the issue. Looks like Norton/Symantec is now well versed when it comes to mobile environment.
  • It Was Great Until It Wasn’t

    By Iowa Teddybear
    At first, this app was completely stable and gave me a (perhaps illusory?) feeling of safety and security whenever I browsed the web on my phone. About a month ago, however, I started having problems with my phone losing its ability to connect to the web via WiFi. The WiFi indicator was still displayed and the phone appeared to be connected to my router, but I had no connection to the internet. Disconnecting from the router and reconnecting would temporarily resolve the issue, as did a number of other fixes I tried, but my phone would invariably lose its connection to the internet again within an hour or two. I initially blamed the reconditioned iPhone XS Max that I’d purchased about the same time, but after I returned that phone and purchased an iPhone 11 Pro Max, the issue returned shortly after I installed the security app. Removing the app and resetting my network settings eliminated the malfunction. It’s now been almost a week since I uninstalled the app and my phone remains trouble free. Hopefully, a future update will eliminate this problem, but for now, I’m staying away from Norton’s mobile security products.

  • What’s With Labeling Conservative Websites as Dangerous?

    1
    By toothii
    I am concerned that Norton is recommending certain Conservative/GOP websites as “UNSAFE”! Sites such as “WinRed”, “NRCC” and some PAC sites among others , are bring warned against by Norton! Is this a not so subtle attempt at censorship? If it is, I can no longer recommend any Norton products for internet security!
  • Constantly uninstalling and reinstalling app

    By 10JRL24
    I’m a big fan of Norton and I’m sure I’d love this app but it takes my 318mbps connection speed down so slow that I have to uninstall the app. I can’t just turn off VPN because it automatically turns itself back on. I do understand that I’ll have to sacrifice some speed for security but it’s like going back to dial up! Very frustrating but if they can fix this issue, it’ll be protection worth having.
