Norton is looking to get a piece of the tablet market in regards to providing protection for that expensive tablet you just purchased. If you’re the type of person who likes the peace of mind of having strong security support for your mobile devices and don’t mind paying a bit for it, this is for you. Norton Tablet Security will run you $39.99/yr and offers anti-theft and antivirus/antimalware protection for any Android tablet.
With the goal to protect both your tablet and your privacy, it might just be worth the cost if the content of your device is somewhat “sensitive”. The software scans all files entering the device as well as mobile apps that you’ve recently installed. As Norton is most noted for, when a user accesses fraudulent or malicious websites, Norton kicks in and does what it does best by preventing the connection, keeping you safe and secure. In addition to all of this, the device offers a feature, like other applications on the market, that provides the ability to recover your tablet should some sticky fingers lift the device. All you have to do is log into a Web portal and you can track the device’s whereabouts via a map. You can cut off the violator by locking your device remotely and or cause a small message to pop up letting the thief know where he/she can return the device should they have a change of heart. Furthermore, Norton has provided a “Sneak Peak” feature which allows you to make the most out of the front facing camera by snapping a quick shot of the person using your tab at the moment. In turn, a photo of the thief will be sent to Symantec’s anti-theft website. Overall, not too shabby for $40 bucks a year. Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments below.
