Symantec created the popular Norton antivirus software. Now, the Symantec developers have created the next step of Norton antivirus software with the Norton WiFi Privacy app. Identity theft is real, and even smartphones are susceptible to hackers, spyware and malware. Norton WiFi Privacy gives Android users an added layer of security and privacy for their smartphones. With the app, users can transform their Androids into locked and secure devices free from the threat of hackers and identity thieves.
Norton WiFi Privacy app turns a public WiFi hotspot into a personal privacy zone for secure browsing on the Android. WiFi hotspots are important to give users free Internet data, but they also might lack security. With the Norton app, users maintain the benefits of free public WiFi and also benefit from great security for their phones. This way, a hacker or thief cannot look at phones from a public hotspot or in open networks and try to capture valuable information from an innocent victim. The encryption for the app is bank-grade, making the data and information on the phone highly protected. With the app enabled, the app automatically encrypts the Android’s data connection for any public hotspot -- or even an unsecured WiFi network. Now, users can enjoy making financial transactions or pay bills from their personal phones without worrying about their private information getting hacked, monitored or stolen by cybercriminals. Users can check their phones and apps worry-free. The app allows anonymous surfing of the web without being tracked or monitored. The app actually hides the user’s physical location and sensitive information. Another bonus feature for the app is the Ad Tracking Removal, meaning the app actually blocks ad trackers and intercepts cookies for Internet searching on the Android. This means a website can no longer track a personal phone or put up obtrusive, hindering adds for browsing sessions.
The Norton WiFi Privacy app is free to download and users can test the app’s service with a 7-day free trial to see if it works for them. The app is available now on the Google Play Store.
