I never realized just how dependent we are on Internet connectivity (and mobile security) until I took an audit of all the devices we own that we use to connect to our home’s wireless internet. There’s two laptops, the tablet, two smartphones, our daughter’s Leap Pad, and two video gaming systems. I’m probably forgetting a few things, but those are the main ones.

I also never realized how unsecure that access was, until I started reading about products like Norton Mobile Security. Many of you might be familiar with the Norton name thanks to products like Norton Anti Virus, but their mobile security product goes waaaay beyond virus protection to include laptop security, smartphone security, and Wi-Fi security. It also includes anti-theft protection for your mobile devices. Here are just a few ways Norton can keep you safe:

  1. REMOTE LOCK: Locks a lost or stolen phone or tablet to prevent strangers from using it. (Yeah, try to play my Candy Crush now, sucker!)
  2. REMOTE WIPE: Lets you erase the information on your missing mobile device, including any data on phone memory cards. (Nope. You’re not getting any of my incriminating photos!)
  3. REMOTE LOCATE: Pinpoints your lost or stolen phone or tablet on a map to help you find it fast. (Steal my phone, will ya? Well, guess who’s parked outside your house right now!)
  4. CONTACTS BACKUP AND RESTORE: Saves contacts from your Android, iPhone, or iPad so you can easily restore them if they are lost or deleted. (OMG, I would be lost without my contacts!)
  5. MOBILE THREAT DETECTION: Detects and removes mobile threats that hackers could use to steal your data and spam you via text messages. (Two things I hate more than bad wine: Hackers and spam.)

Norton also offers Norton Hotspot Privacy, which can be used to protect your home Wi-Fi against online identity theft and keep user names, passwords and other personal info safe. It also eliminates eavesdropping on your Wi-Fi session and prevents hacking. One of the coolest features about Norton Hotspot Privacy is that you can purchase it for just a few days. In other words, if you’re on vacation, you can buy the Wi-Fi Security package when you’re using unprotected public Wi-Fi.

Downloading it is super simple, too. Just enter your email address on the download page and Norton will send you a link to get the download started!

After you get the email from Norton (make sure you open the email on the device you want to install Norton Mobile Security on), just click the setup button and off you go. Your devices — and your family — will be safer in just a few minutes!

Long story short, it’s the 21st century, and Internet access is part of our daily lives, so you should definitely protect yourself with products like Norton Mobile Security. Purchasing and downloading it is super simple. You can even get a free 30-day trial of Norton Mobile Security and Norton Hotspot Privacy by following the links I just mentioned. Also, feel free to follow Norton on Facebook and Twitter.
