Norton App Lock 1.0 for Android is now Available!

Hi Everyone,

Norton App Lock, from the makers of award-winning Norton Security. Add lock-down security to keep your private information private.

You’ve got lots of sensitive information in the apps you rely on. Many times, even apps that store pictures, track fitness routines, or control remote access to your home don’t require a security code to open. Add Norton App Lock, from a leader in digital security, to make sure your private information stays private.
