Norton Wifi blocks other apps on android

Hi forumers,

I have Norton Wifi on my android phone. When it is turned on, the following occurs

1. I cannot text via MMS (picture or message to multiple recipients).

2. OnStar Remote Link - the map will not load.

Both problems go away when I turn of the VPN in the Norton Wifi app. Just an annoyance, but does anyone have any information or thoughts about this?

Re: Norton Wifi blocks other apps on android

NWP does not block anything. It just creates a virtual network connection. Any app that has a problem when NWP is active has some kind of issue with the kind of connection it is trying to use.

Check each app's settings to see if there is a setting for proxy, or any other network settings.

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