Think that just because you’re using an iPhone, you’re free from the threats of the internet? Well, maybe, but you are still at risk of losing your device and having your personal information and data compromised. Norton by Symantec today released the latest version of its flagship mobile offering, Norton Mobile Security, that comes with contacts backup, an improved user interface, as well as support for iOS devices. “It’s no secret that people are using mobile devices more than ever in their daily lives, for everything from connecting with friends to paying for a cup of coffee. Your phone may not just be your phone – it may be your wallet, identity card, address book and family photo album.
As we use our phones in new ways, we’re also putting sensitive information at risk if the device gets lost or stolen. With the latest version of Norton Mobile Security, we are making it simple for people to stay protected on whichever device they choose.” – Dave Cole, Vice President, Product Management, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec Corporation. Apart from receiving multi-device and multi-platform support, the new release allows you to easily and quickly backup and restore your contacts, has a web-based management for you to easily control the security of all your devices, a “Scream” alarm that sets off an audible alarm so consumers can quickly find their missing Android devices, and finally, a Remote Locate feature that pinpoints a lost or stolen device on a map. Norton Mobile Security retails at RM49 and is available on Norton online store.
