Norton is one of the most popular computer security companies out there. They've traditionally created antivirus software for Windows and Mac but they've also known how to keep up with smartphones and tablets developing specific solutions for these devices and bearing in mind the real needs of their users. Norton Mobile Security is the name of the security tool they've created for iOS with a set of really useful functions to try to keep our iPhone and iPad totally clean.
Efficient protection for your iPhone and iPad.
Apple doesn't allow apps of this nature to access the depths of our devices to detect viruses or threats: it doesn't need to because the system is safe enough to not need an antivirus. But that doesn't mean that we don't need a security app with some extra functions because there are other dangers that we also have to avoid.
The 2 main functions of Norton Mobile Security
- Function to locate our phone: you know that horrible feeling each time you can't find your phone because it's not where you thought you had left it. Now, when this happens you can resort to this app to locate its exact position and even transmit an alert sound. It can be useful both in the case of loss and theft. And it includes another interesting function: it allows us to make remote calls to the handset over the Internet.
- Contact management: possibly the most valuable information we keep on our phone, the numbers of our contacts. Losing them would be a drama so the best way to guarantee their integrity is creating backups that you can restore whenever you want.
Totally useless without a subscription
Now it's time for the bad news: to be able to use the app you'll need a subscription. Yes, it's free but you won't be able to do too much without previously contracting a security plan on Norton's website. Think about it carefully as it's one of the best security solutions at present and it's probably worth subscribing.
