Have Norton Premium for 10. Can not find a way to install on my Fire Tablet. Is there a solution to install? Thanks!

Hello Carl. Unfortunately, the Kindle Fire runs a "custom" version of Android made specifically for those devices. Norton does not support it. The current OS support by product list can be found here. And also discussed here.

Cheers

Re: Amazon Fire Tablet

As already noted, NMS is not available for your device on the Google Play store because of the modifications to the Android OS made by Amazon for the Kindle devices. The Google Play Store is the only official release channel for the Norton products.

In case you are tempted to install from a third party app store.....If you are able to install NMS from another source, like 1Mobile, it is likely someone has modified something in the app to make it compatible. Doing so can compromise your device, as you do not know what other changes may have been made. This weakened security is pointed out by the need to enable install from unknown sources. That disables one of the first lines of defence against getting malware installed alongside some app you want.

From the 1mobile market FAQ

Before operating a manual installation of apps using the .apk files, you need to allow your phone to install from “Unknown Sources” (i.e. non-Market apps)at first.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
