Norton Spot

Norton Spot


Norton Spot scans for problematic apps before you download them onto your device. Using the share feature on Google Play, simply “share” the app you wish to download with us and we’ll provide you information that Google Play doesn't. We’ll quickly let you know whether the app will leak your personal information and content, excessively use your battery or have annoying intrusive behavior. Norton puts you in control – so you can decide which apps to trust even before you install it.

FEATURES
• Scan apps and get a security and battery profile BEFORE you download it on Google Play
• Identify apps that display intrusive ads on your device
• Get a battery profile of apps to see how much drain it will be while launched on your device
• See whether apps collect personal information before they get on your device

WHY NORTON SPOT?
Norton Spot is our playground where we test out new ideas and bring you cutting edge features before they are widely released. There may be frequent updates and things moving around while we perfect the feature, but you have a voice in how it all turns out. Use the Norton Spot features and give us feedback within the app and your comments will be heard. Thank you for contributing!

Brilliant! Spot's my go-to app before installing anything. I use it in conjunction with Bitdefender's Clueful app and would definitely recommend both of them. UPDATE: However, I've noticed some apps in the Play Store state they use ads, yet Spot fails to detect such and responds (incorrectly) that the app is ad-free. It also claims Kingsoft's WPS Office now has ads, though I've not seen any yet. If these are false negatives/positives, maybe Spot's accuracy needs to be improved. I'll give the 5th star back once it has.

Norton 360- Spot ad & Identity - They're excellent / Top Notch I now use Norton 360, Identity(my fav), Anti-Theft & Spot ad for: Laptop, Tab & Cell phone. Backup is so easy Norton 360 takes care of everything. Also scans my apps for my phone to verify they're safe including updates. I continue to use Spot Ad on both updates & apps I'm interested in because I hate ads so this has saved me the headache of having to uninstall it. Then there's a list it shows what my personal info the app is acquiring, battery usuage etc etc..
