Norton ID safe for Kindle Fire.

I know Norton ID safe is available for Android but Kindle Fire users can't access Google play store, is there a possibility that this version will appear on the Amazon app store or at least be available on the Norton website for direct download; currently I have the Android version from the 1mobile site but much prefer to use the Amazon store or Norton direct.

Re: Norton ID safe for Kindle Fire.

Unfortunately, the Kindle uses a modified Android OS, and the differences seem to be enough that the Norton mobile products will not run on Kindle.

You might want to post in the Product suggestions board to suggest Kindle support.

Re: Norton ID safe for Kindle Fire.

The thing is that the Norton ID safe app does indeed work on the Kindle Fire HD as I'm currently using it - downloaded from the 1mobile market - & apart from when entering details you find the cursor is virtually the same colour as the background (white) so you can't really see it there's no problem so I can't see why Norton can't offer this app on the amazon app store as is.

I have also posted this on the product suggestions board. :)

Maybe @Mohan_G  can cast some light here.

It may be that the version for Android will work on the Kindle, but it may not  be supported by Norton on that platform because of the differences in the Kindle version of Android.

That would explain why it is not available through the normal Kindle channels.

Re: Norton ID safe for Kindle Fire.

The only problem I've seen so far is the cursor colour is white - the same colour as the background of the text entry box within the app although there's no worry actually entering usernames/passwords when creating the login entry.
