The Kindle Fire is not officially supported, but NTS may work on it. There is a 60 day return policy so if you were to install it and noticed a problem you could get your money back.

Erik: Thank you for the quick response re: NTS for Kindle Fire. Your response provoked another question - re: 60 day return policy. Does this return policy apply to NTS purchased online, as well as through a retail store (Ex: Best Buy)? If yes, then I will try NTS and report back to message board with results. ...

There are no restrictions for the 60 day policy. The clock starts when you buy the product, regardless of how you bought it. It's a part of your legal rights as a consumer. You'd just need to go to http://norton.com/returns to find out how. That said, I'm hoping that you don't have a problem and thereby don't need to return the product.

Great to hear it installed for you. I know that in some testing there is some inconsistent behavior, but this should be expected since the product was built and released before the Fire was available. According to a news article Amazon will be sending out an OTA (Over the air) update to the Fire soon as well which may have a positive impact as well. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. Thanks for trying it out.

Erik, NTS works on the Kindle Fire. Just completed the download and all functions of app appear to work fine. Thank you for your assistance.
This is great news for all current Kindle Fire owners and future customers
who purchase a Kindle Fire as they will be able to purchase and use the
Norton Tablet Security on their Kindle Fire and know that they have the best
Protection and Security that Symantec Norton can provide.

I had this feeling it would work.
It shows you that the Kindle Fire is based on a Custom Android OS.
That is, customized to Amazon's advantage. Nothing more, IMO.
What about purging their OS and loading Android 4.x?
