About this app

Introducing Norton Genie. Your personal AI-powered scam detector. Genie is an industry leading AI-powered scam detection tool that will scan and review text messages, emails, websites, and social posts trying to trick you. You’ll get instant advice on whether the message or site is potentially a scam, so you'll know if it’s safe. [1]

- Have you received a text message from a suspicious or unknown sender?
- Was an email delivered to your inbox by someone pretending to be your bank or insurance company?
- Is that offer advertised on social media too good to be true?
- Does a website feel like it could be a scam? Did you really find the best price or does the site just want your credit card info?

Criminals are so good at making scams look real, that it’s easy to get tricked into opening, clicking, or sharing shady links. Bottom line? We can tell you if it could be a scam before you get scammed!

So easy to use, it’s like magic.

Just copy & paste or upload a screenshot of the text message, social media post, email, or website you want checked, and just like magic, we'll let you know in seconds if it's potentially a scam or not. Genie can also provide tips on what to do next, and answer follow-up questions you might have like, what are the criminals trying to get from me?

The more you use it, the smarter it gets.

Unfortunately, criminals keep finding new ways to trick you. Genie is powered by advanced AI so the more you use it, the smarter it gets at detecting new scams. The more messages you upload, the more it evolves, keeping you even safer in the future.

This is a great app. I recommend it to everyone. It does exactly what it claims and it is actually free to use. There has been no interruptions from ads during any of the interactions with Norton Genie. It does not constantly interrupt the interactions with ads to upgrade Norton Genie to the "premium" version and it does not have you copy, paste, and submit the email/message text, links, photo to the app, only to reply, "scanning for scams is accessible with the paid premium version only."

I like where this is going but would like to see these features integrated into Norton 360. It should scan email, messages, images without the user having to copy paste or touch them. Copy pasting from email or messages increases the risk of accidentally clicking malicious links or images that lead to malicious websites or tracking images.

Too cumbersome and time-consuming. I for one do not have time to showing you stuff. If you can't block it what good is it. And quite frankly after 30 years with Norton and you charging for things you keep adding is going to turn off a lot of customers. I was led to believe Norton 360 was all I would ever need. But Norton keeps adding expensive add ons'.
