Cut-price Norton Mobile Security deal is available for anyone buying an Android smartphone from Carphone Warehouse
Smartphone security for Android is now available for half the price, Norton and Carphone Warehouse have announced.
An agreement between the two companies will see Norton Mobile Security offered at £14.99 when bought with any Android handset. The smartphone security software is normally £29.99.
Norton Mobile Security includes a feature to remotely lock and wipe an Android smartphone if it is stolen. This means personal information can be removed from a device, preventing thieves from using it.
Malicious apps can also be detected since anything downloaded to the device is scanned before it is installed.
The news comes after a fresh batch of rogue Android applications was uncovered. Fake versions of games such as Angry Birds, Assassins Creed and Cut the Rope were costing unwitting users an average of £80 as hidden malicious software sent and received premium-rate text messages.
