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 Are there risks with an outdated OS?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 An outdated OS can create vulnerabilities and opportunities for cybercriminals.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. •14-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.

    Norton does not work on iPhone 11 Pro max
  • Causing spontaneous restarts

    Amen to other reviews. Through process of elimination, l determine that my brand-new iPhone 11’s repeated spontaneous restarts occur only when Norton Mobile Security is installed, as late as today. Please fix.
  • Crashes phone

    I had this app on my phone at least a year with no issues. For several months I was having issues with WiFi and data usage, but just thought it was my iPhone acting up. Then a month or so ago, my iPhone would no longer backup to iCloud due to “poor network connection”, the phone would freeze, and it randomly restart. Talked with Apple, updated my iOS l, and did a factory reset with no resolution. This has been a frustrating issue for weeks! Today I noticed that my iPad was having issues backing up to iCloud. I decided to delete this app on my iPad and I was able to backup to iCloud with no issues. I quickly deleted this app from my iPhone and was able to back up to iCloud. Since deleting this app today, my iPhone has not frozen or randomly restarted. If your iPhone or iPad is acting up, I would start with deleting this app.
  • Really love this app

    Norton. I love this app because I can finally have peace of mind when I am browsing the internet. I do have one thing with this app is that under the web protection section it keeps turning off. I never turn it off it just kicks itself off at random times. Other than that I love this app
  • Never helped

    Right when I got it I opened the app and it automatically sent me to a page where it wants you to buy the “pass” it did not say you had to buy it. It technically scams you into thinking this app is for free but when you open it it makes you want to buy it to work. If there was an ‘X’ button or exit I would be totally fine with this but there was not I tried everything to try to get out of the page and nothing worked.
  • Blanket alerts with no exception

    Apparently someone who uses the same email app that I do, and the proxy it uses, sent out a phishing attack at some point in the past. But instead of simply earmarking that particular email account as a possible danger, Norton chose to mark the entire mail app (the proxy specifically) as a threat. That means anyone using that mail app receives numerous, repetitive security alerts anytime the app is open. That's basically like categorizing gmail and all gmail users as a threat because a single gmail user sent out a phishing attack at some point. Unlike most variations of Norton I've used on various systems over the years, the version for my iPad Pro does not allow the use of exceptions or filters, so there's no way to turn off these incessant and erroneous threat messages. The only way to accomplish something similar is to message them with an explanation of why a change is needed. I received a response saying they had denied my request to re-categorize the threat as something other than phishing. But that isn't what I asked for. All I asked for was that they simply identify the single email account that had engaged in phishing at some point, rather than categorize the entire mail server and everyone who uses it as a threat. I've been a loyal Norton user for since the 1990s, both as a single user and as a corporate IT engineer, so I'm not biased against them in any way. In fact, it's quite the opposite. I still use it on my other systems and recommend it to other people. I just can't use it on my iPad unless I'm willing to endure an endless stream of threat messages anytime my email app is open. And no, I can't use another app because this is the only one that handles my mail properly. So I've had to uninstall Norton, which is an otherwise exceptional app, and go with something else on this device.
  • IPhone X kept rebooting

    My iPhone X started shutting down an re-starting about a month ago. I could be in the middle of a call (or any activity) and the phone would simply shut down! I was having at least a dozen of these shutdowns on a daily basis. I noticed that this app was constantly showing activity on and off screen so I deleted it and the issue went away. I also noticed that this app consumed more battery energy than any of the apps that I routinely use. Clearly not suited for the iPhone X.

    This site was blocked saying unsafe. However, this site is Not unsafe. Wanted to watch a talk and had to use a phone without Norton. I may have to cancel Norton & use another security program. Advise. Frank S Yelin
  • 10sec WiFi for every 3 minutes

    By mycobra427
    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 of 10 seconds of internet use. Continuously cycling taking iPhone off the internet. Tech service useless to fix.
  • Product is worthless

    Having the same issues as many other users. Have to keep VPN and web security turned off or my phone constantly crashes and is unusable. Will be canceling my service.
