Norton Mobile Security is a special security program designed specifically for the mobile devices. Available for Android and iOS mobile phones, Norton Mobile Security helps in protecting the data as well as the applications installed on your mobile device. Unlike the other Norton products that can be downloaded from Norton.com/setup, this product is available in the PlayStore or Apple Store.
The program comes up with an anti-theft feature that always works in the background to prevent your device from the thieves. You can access this feature via web or SMS to locate your device and to protect the data on it. To set up an SMS Commands passcode in Norton mobile security, follow these steps:
- Launch the Norton Mobile Security App and open the menu from the top-left corner of the screen
- Choose App Settings
- In the Anti-Theft segment, move the slider to turn on the SMS Commands
- To find the SMS Commands, you may need to scroll down
- Now, provide your 4-digit unique SMS passcode for your device
- This passcode will be used for sending the anti-theft SMS Commands to your mobile phone from another mobile phone
- Go to Next and then tap OK
- In order to enable SMS Commands, you need to select a screen lock simply by tapping over the SET
- With this, you can select a screen lock
- Move the slider in front of the SMS Commands to turn it on
To make the most of the SMS Commands feature, send an SMS to your device in the below-given format (**** denotes the 4-digit unique SMS passcode for your device)
- Scream ****
- Locate ****
- Wipe ****
- Lock ****
Please note- that if you have updated your Norton Mobile Security application to its latest version, you can still use the same SMS Commands passcode to send the SMS. For any further information associated to SMS Commands Passcode, Norton Mobile Security, or Norton Setup, call Norton support team. A technician will gladly assist you!
