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!

    Checks apps and provides security alerts prior to download. Read the instructions, some people may think it's a passive tool but it doesn't work unless you tell it too. It doesn't waste your time with apps you trust unless you want to double check your trusted vendors.
