CNET Editors' review
With the emergence of malware for smartphones, using a protection program is quickly becoming a necessity. Norton Mobile Security Lite for Android is a good option with several useful features for phone security.
The Lite version of the program comes free of charge, but payment of $14.99 for a one-year subscription unlocks additional features such as backup, call blocking, and web protection. Installation of the Lite version was seamless and completed quickly. Technical support was available from the developer for problems as well as updates. Upon startup, the user must accept a licensing agreement and can either sign in with an online user name or skip this step. When the user is not signed in, the anti-theft features cannot be activated. The interface of Norton Mobile Security Lite for Android is easy to use and has tiles for the different features available. Once in the malware section, users can quickly scan applications for problems. Scan can also be prescheduled to occur during downtime. The results returned during testing were very easy to read, even for beginning users. Once we signed in, the anti-theft features were also useful and easy to use. If the device is lost or stolen, users can use the Web to find the location of their device.
Norton Mobile Security Lite for Android performs its functions well. It is a well-designed application suitable for those concerned about malware on their smartphone.
Norton Mobile Security Lite for Android is a free antivirus package that detects and eliminates mobile threats before they can infect your phone, Anti-Theft that remotely locates, locks, and wipes your phone if it is lost or stolen, and powerful privacy protection software that can block annoying or unwanted texts and phone calls.
