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.

• 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

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!

    This app USED to scan all installed apps and tell you which ones were putting and in notification bar, etc. Now, I'm going to have to click on EACH INDIVIDUAL APP from the play store to have it scanned??? Definitely not going to happen here.. If something isn't broken, why did you mess with it until it was??? Smh

    An original and very useful application. Warns you ahead of time before the installation of a PUA.

    Used to be easy and scan all apps on your phone at once. Now you have to scan each app one by one and u have to be in the play store to use it. It sucks now and I'm uninstalling.

    For many of apps, I checked with the tool, I was getting no results. The tool kept saying those apps were not old enough (less than 3 weeks), while actually those apps were older, some even two years old. The issue persists.
