Norton Security Premium on Windows 10 Mobile

I have Norton Security Premium and a 950xl (Windows 10 Mobile). Is it possible to install NSP on this device? If so, how? I do not find an app in the store nor does the download work when i download it from the site while on the 950xl. In the store, the only app that comes up for Norton search is "Edward Norton" - granted a great actor but not what i was looking for in this case. When try to install download file it says "Something went wrong. Could not launch the file."

Windows Mobile products are not supported at this time. There have been many requests for this, but no news yet.

I guess so much for the Norton claim at bottom of http://us.norton.com: "Windows 10 is here. Norton has you covered. Don't let a new operating system equal new security issues. Norton Security provides one easy solution to protect multiple devices — computers, smartphones, tablets — on multiple operating systems, including Windows 10." They could at least put an asterisk and say "* Excluding Windows 10 Mobile"

But if you click on the Shop Now link you see the first line of information says

Protects up to 10 PCs, Macs, Androids and iOS devices with a single subscription.

No mention of Windows Mobile.

Re: Norton Security Premium on Windows 10 Mobile

In general unless looking at much of the advertising and information with a fine tooth comb it is rather misleading. Even the comment highlighted by peterweb is so as Norton provides no protection from infection for iOS as far as I am aware, whether an iPhone requires AV is another argument.

It is time all organisations were completely honest with their advertising, I no longer advise users that Norton may be installed on iOS as it adds nothing to what the iPhone already does although I understand Norton Family is now available to iOS owners in some form.

Once Windows 10 Phone/Mobile is introduced organisations will have no real excuse for not supporting it and it is time that Companies such as Norton at least plan to do so, they may well be doing so and not told us.

I too note to users trying to install NMS on IOS devices to use the free app and service from Apple. The IOS coverage, or lack there of, is noted on the Norton Mobile Security web site.

hi Peterweb

Yes I agree it is noted but surely font of perhaps 30% the size of the smallest size above is hardly honest!
