Having just read https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/norton-mobile-insight-discovers-facebook-privacy-leak, it occured to me... what if Symantec hosted a website/page for any given mobile app, with the results of your virus scan?

In doing so, if I were on the Android Play store, and found an app that I'd like to install, I could somehow copy/paste the URL or app ID into a Symantec page, which would show the results of your app scans, before I even download them.

Since the article suggests that you're already scanning thousands of apps anyway, might as well make the records readily available and searchable :)

Regardless the way valuable antivirus computer software can be, it might from time to time get disadvantages. Antivirus computer software can certainly damage a pc's effectiveness. Inexperienced people might also get problems realizing the actual prompts and options of which antivirus computer software reveals them using. http://www.thenehruplace.com/
