Norton Mobile Security 2011 Giveaway- Win 5 Licenses [Winners Announced]

by Rohit Khurana on September 3, 2011


In the past we have reviewed a number of Norton products dedicated to Windows platform but today I will be reviewing the Norton Mobile Security app for the android OS. Along with a detailed review, as usual, we will also be shortlisting 5 readers for free licenses of Norton Mobile Security.


With no surprise the Norton Mobile Security is way too powerful to withstand any virus attack also comes equipped with some fantastic features. Being the 2011 version which very much resembles the PC version, the interface is really attractive and simple to understand. To install the product key so that all the features get activated, press the subscription button at the bottom and enter the serial key and within a few seconds it will show the updated license validity.

Now coming to the features of it, since it is a mobile app the possibility of theft or misplacement is always there which eventually puts your personal data present on the phone at risk. So the very first and most important feature is the Anti Theft. To set up the feature, press it and on the next screen hit the Set Up Anti-Theft button.


The whole procedure includes three steps, of which the first is to set a password.


Press the next button and proceed to next step where you have to add five people from your contact list which you authorize as the numbers from which you can send messages to your cellphone, in case of any misplacement or theft, to wipe out the data or lock the phone.


On the third screen the app will display the messages which are of all importance as with these, one can locate his or her device, lock the same and wipe the data from the device. You can also test the same by pressing the test this out button.


Finally hit complete and on the next screen you can disable o enable some of the features like Remote Locate, Lock, Wipe, SIM Card Lock etc..


Coming back to the main screen and then to the second option, we have Anti Malware which is the same scan feature where you can put your device on scan, schedule scans, enable or disable Norton community watch and also set the scan duration to days, weeks and months.


The third feature is the Call and SMS blocking. It contains a block list, a section for blocked calls and one for blocked SMSs.



Press the add button and on the next screen you can add the numbers you wish to block calls and messages to be received from. You can use the contacts, call logs, SMS logs and even enter numbers manually which you wish to block. To quickly activate or deactivate the blocking feature you can check or uncheck the block calls and block SMS options from the same page.


Lastly we have the Web protection  feature which as recommended should be kept enabled as it scans webpages while surfing the internet and protects the phone from virus attacks.


To access additional settings, press the menu button and you will see a small pop up menu at the bottom.


The Activity log tells you all the activities taking place in the app like Live update, community watch, any scans etc..


The Live Update feature can also be accessed from these settings. From the Live Update page you can immediately update the app and even enable schedules.


Under the notifications section you can enable the notifications icon in the status bar for your android device.


It seems to be a promising app and I am sure it will definitely enhance the protection level of your device.

The anti theft system of Norton mobile security is awesome.
Thats really required if you buy a costly phone as you cannot leave it vulnerable to theft.

Sharath BS September 4, 2011 at 1:08 pm

I like the Anti Theft feature and the Web protection feature in Norton Mobile Security. Most of the security solutions out in the market don’t offer web protection. Also the remote wipe and the SIM Lock, Remote Wipe will be extremely useful in case of theft of device with sensitive data.

Amit September 4, 2011 at 3:08 pm

To protect my phone and be safe on web while browsing

seetharamaraju September 4, 2011 at 9:42 pm

Norton Mobile Security 2011 is a very good application.
Norton is one of the key companies producing Anti-virus.
I use this program for many years, and never disappointed.
Now, as Android, I must have it. :)!/Jar4ek/status/111842651581591554

I like the Web Protection feature. Many people fail to realize that the smartphone is still a virtual system like a computer and needs just as much protection. Norton and Symantec are the best company there is and will continue to be as far as security is concerned so to know they are protecting the phone this way now is a very settling and wonderful offer for peace of mind. After all, smartphones these days hold just as much if not more personal information and contact nformation then computers do…

Raj September 15, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Thanks for bringing another nice giveaway. Norton has been a pioneer in computer security and i am sure their mobile security will also be very good. Few features i like about it are the web protection, call and sms block, remote lock, norton community watch etc. Actually there are many features in this app. This is a perfect all-in-one security app. As per the rule shared it on facebook and here’s the link

Thanks and cheers.
