The product offers new and improved features including: multi-device cross-platform support including Android smartphones and tablets, as well as iPhones and iPads; contact backup saves contacts from a user’s Android or iOS device so that it can be easily restored if lost or deleted; web-based management allowing consumers to control the security of devices from one place on the web; a "scream” alarm; and remote location of stolen devices. Norton Mobile Security has an retail price of $30 and is available for purchase through various retailers, the Norton online store or Google Play. In addition, Norton 360 Multi-Device and Norton One will be updated with the features in the latest release of Norton Mobile Security.
