Norton™ Anti-Theft

Important information about your Norton Anti-Theft protection


Thank you for your interest in Norton Anti-Theft.

To address emerging and ever-changing online threats, as well as the evolving needs of our customers, we have decided to discontinue Norton Anti-Theft.

As of December 2, 2014, this product is no longer available. In its place for mobile users only, we recommend Norton Mobile Security. With anti-theft capabilities plus mobile protection features for your Android, iPad® and iPhone®, it’s the perfect replacement so you can Boldly Go and do more on the move.
