Quite simply put, we are offering a complimentary copy of Norton Mobile Security with any purchase of an Android smartphone and tablet from Clove (whilst stock lasts).
Norton Mobile Security or NMS as it is referred to, is a comprehensive solution for security on your mobile device. It’s quite likely that you protect your PC or laptop, so why not protect your phone and tablet too.
In June 2012 there was over 150,000 downloads from Google Play Store of 2 applications which were malicious, before they were removed. The application was designed to send SMS messages from infected smartphones to a premium-rate number before uninstalling itself. Imagine being a victim of such a scam. (Source: Mobile Security)
Here is where Norton Mobile Security (NMS) comes in. It would have scanned and picked up that the app was not what it suggested.
NMS has been updated to support smartphones and tablets in one product with a new and improved interface.
