Editors' Review

Norton is one of the best-known names in cyber security, and Norton Security and Antivirus for Android is Norton Mobile Security's free app for Android devices. It syncs with your existing Norton account, or you can create a new account for free (paid upgrades enable additional features). Like many Android apps from antivirus providers, Norton Security and Antivirus emphasizes additional security features like backup and anti-theft as much as virus and malware protection.

Pros

No sign-in: Try Norton Mobile Security without registering the app. However, features like Anti-Theft require sign-in.

Proactive protection: Android and Windows differ in vulnerability, so Norton's app takes a proactive approach by targeting potential threats like suspicious apps and guarding against online intrusion and device theft.

Ongoing notifications: Enabling the Ongoing notifications option displays your device's security status in your device's notifications.

Cons

Premium-only features: The App Advisor for Google Play, Backup, Web protection, and Call and SMS Blocking are only available with a Premium account, though security apps from equally reputable sources offer similar features for free.

Bottom Line

There's no doubt that mobile security threats exist and will most likely grow in frequency and security, so reliable protection is a must. Norton Security and Antivirus for Android is a good choice if you have an existing Norton account, but similar apps offer more features for free.
