Norton’s latest Mobile Security version to check info leakage

To provide protection for Android smartphones, tablets, iPhones and iPads, Symantec has released the latest version of Norton Mobile Security. The latest version is designed to address privacy with new intelligence technology called Norton Mobile Insight. Privacy risk scans powered by Norton Mobile Insight will reveal which mobile applications may put the user’s personal information at risk. The latest updates to Norton Mobile Security also extend enhanced anti-theft capabilities to iPhone and iPad with a “scream” alarm to help users quickly find their missing mobile device.

Norton Mobile Security updated version, will now flag an application and notify a user if a mobile app is found to export information such as a user’s contacts, photos or call logs. It empowers consumers to protect their personal information and make informed decisions about which apps to keep or remove.

Con Mallon, Senior Director, Product Management, Symantec said, The issue of privacy is a complex and evolving one, for both consumers and developers. Until now, mobile app privacy scanning has been done only at the most superficial level, which doesn’t yield truly relevant and actionable information to consumers. With this latest release, we are using a unique combination of static and dynamic analysis to deliver an unprecedented view into app privacy and information leakage. With this information, consumers can actually decide for themselves whether to keep each app.

Users of Norton Mobile Security benefit from Norton Mobile Insight  to determine potential security risks, privacy risks and potentially intrusive behavior.The updated version is available at an MSRP of $29.99 and is available…..See More
