Learn more about the high battery usage displayed for Norton Mobile Security for iOS

Battery usage statistics in iOS settings are calculated using an algorithm that considers multiple factors including the radio or the cellular data usage that an app initiates.

When the Web Protection feature in Norton Mobile Security is enabled, it monitors all the Internet traffic on the device. Since Norton Mobile Security touches each network packet originating from any app that accesses Internet, iOS attributes the total Internet access time by any app to Norton Mobile Security. This behavior results in inappropriately high battery usage being attributed to Norton Mobile Security in Battery usage statistics. The actual battery usage by Norton Mobile Security is far less than what is displayed.
