A friend of mine recently had her phone stolen right out of her hand while she was walking down the street to her car. She is not one that misplaces things so smartphone security wasn’t something that was on her mind. I felt so bad for her. Except for the serial number she really had no way to track down the phone. She had no way to protect her information on it or to lock it so that the thief wouldn’t be able to access the information. She never put a pass code on it because it was cumbersome to keep typing in those digits multiple times a day. She filed a police report and that was it. They told her that the robber was probably just looking to resell her iPhone for the trade-in value. She cancelled all of her credit cards that were stored in the phone and warned her friends and family that her contacts were now accessible. She literally didn’t sleep for days. She had to purchase another phone right away but asked me if I knew of a way to make her phone ULTIMATELY secure.
I told her I would find a solution, not only for her but for me and my family as well. The same thing could have happened to us. On my mission to make sure my loved ones are protected, I found out about Norton Mobile Security. It had all we were looking for and more! Not only does it protect iPhones but it protects Android smartphones and tablets, and iPads too. Norton also offers a web portal to protect all your devices in one convenient place on the web. Wait until you hear about all the other fantastic things it can do!! I was stunned and I also slapped myself for not getting it sooner.
