We are a home that contains no shortage of gadgets to get online. There’s our desktop computer, but then we also have tablets galore as well as smart phones. And, if Santa’s listening, I’m even hoping for a laptop for Christmas. As such, mobile security is a big priority.
These days, our information can get stolen out from under us online faster and easier than any other way. And the truly frightening fact is that a lot of the time we don’t even realize it’s happened. This is why it’s of vital importance to have a trusted program securing your devices. One name that’s been trusted for years is Norton.
Anymore, our mobile phone is more than just a communication device. It’s a social network, internet browser and wallet. It’s important to take the same care and protection as you would a computer, and use a comprehensive solution like Norton Mobile Security (available for download on iTunes, Google Play and other official app marketplaces), so you’re protected no matter where you shop, surf or share.
You can even get a 30 day free trial of Norton Mobile Security and Norton Hotspot Security. Once you feel your information is that protected, you won’t want to go back! And knowing my kids are safe online makes me feel an even greater sense of relief.
Personally, I’ve used Norton for years on my desktop computer to keep my information secure and free from viruses. But they’re great for mobile protection and hotspot security as well. Any device that connects to wifi, especially, can be vulnerable. Actually, more than 1/3 of smartphone users have experienced mobile cybercrime (2013 Norton Report). Making sure those devices are protected only makes sense. I know for myself, having the malware protection really helps put my mind at ease and I love that I set the full scan for daily, weekly, or monthly.
I do most of my shopping online. In fact, I’ve done all of my Christmas shopping online. I’m not the only one. Mobile devices and retail apps have made it easier than ever to shop and gift on the go. In fact, 58 percent of U.S. consumers used smartphones and 42 percent used tablets to shop during Cyber Monday 2012 (IBM). A great tip when purchasing online is to only shop from secure sites. Whether shopping on a smartphone, tablet or home computer, only use reputable retailers and websites. Also, be sure to look for HTTPS in your browser address bar before entering your personal information or credit card information.
My greatest job as a mother and the one my kids look up to is to keep them safe, that goes in life but also when it comes to whatever they do online. I feel more secure with Norton Mobile Security on our devices.
