Nice teaser in Norton 360 v6

I thought that Norton/Symantec was supposed to not support SPAM, yet what do they do in their own product Norton 360 v6? Put up teasers for Norton Mobile Security for Android with the line: Norton Mobile Security - Get it Now (with a QR code) attached.  One would think this is a freebie for your Android device - not according to Norton Support you need to purchase a key for the device.  Why advertise something in a product that you can't link it to with an existing product? Wouldn't that kind of make sense?  If you get the 'Norton Mobile Security' from the Android market, you get a 'LITE' version.  Isn't this kind of considered a bait & switch tactic?  One would expect that you get a full version from the SPAMvertisement sounds like they are offering a deal ...

But why place a teaser for a product that won't connect or isn't even connected with Norton 360?

Hi ninja660

 

I think it is just Symantec Norton  being helpfull letting customers know that they can

protect not only computers but also Android mobile devices.:smileyhappy: Which is a good thing to

know for the Norton users who  may not be aware of the Norton Mobile Security product..:-)

 

Cheers :smileywink:
