Norton Anti-Theft takes of device-stealing

Tuesday Symantec launched Norton Anti-Theft, a Web-based service that allows consumers to remotely lock, locate and recover a lost or stolen Windows-based laptop, Android smartphone or Android tablet. The release is part of Symantec's Norton Everywhere initiative, which extends Norton's security expertise and technologies to protect consumers everywhere they go, regardless of device or platform.
In addition to the Sneak Peek feature, Symantec's Norton Auto-Theft also tracks and maps the location of the stolen/lost device when anyone uses it to go online. Subscribers can also securely lock the device to prevent others from using it or seeing the stored information. There's also an option to display a customizable message to anyone who finds the missing device so that owners can make arrangements to get it back.
Symantec claims that Norton Anti-Theft works securely over the Internet so that users can easily track, locate, and lock their devices anytime, anywhere. The service comes with free support by way of phone, email, live chat or via the Norton Anti-Theft website.
Subscribers to Norton Anti-Theft can track up to ten devices, but that secure feeling comes with a price: $89.99 per year. Additional subscription plans include $39.99 per year for 3 devices, and $59.99 per year for 5 devices. Norton Anti-Theft even supports all web browsers, so there's no software to install on all three platforms.
