Cyber Safety Giant NortonLifeLock to Launch Norton Crypto

Internationally renowned Cyber Security specialist NortonLifeLock has recently unveiled Norton Crypto, its latest feature that allows consumers to mine cryptocurrency with ease and safety via its trusted Norton 360 platform.

Select Norton 360 customers that are part of Norton’s early adopter program will be invited to mine for Ethereum.

As the crypto economy continues to become a more important part of our customers’ lives, we want to empower them to mine cryptocurrency with Norton, a brand they trust. Norton Crypto is yet another innovative example of how we are expanding our Cyber Safety platform to protect our customers’ ever-evolving digital lives.

 

Vincent Pilette, CEO of NortonLifeLock

With Norton Crypto, consumers can mine for Ethereum without exposing themselves and their devices to risks that would compromise their security. Customers can keep track of the earnings and transfer them into their Norton Crypto Wallet, which is stored in the cloud.

“We are proud to be the first consumer Cyber Safety company to offer coinminers the ability to safely and easily turn the idle time on their PCs into an opportunity to earn digital currency. With Norton Crypto, our customers can mine for cryptocurrency with just a few clicks, avoiding many barriers to entry in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.”

 

Gagan Singh, Chief Product Officer at NortonLifeLock

For years, cryptocurrency mining carried some risks due to miners disabling their security in order to run coinmining and permitting unvetted code on their machines that can potentially skim from their earnings or plant ransomware. It is common for the earnings to be stored directly on the hard drives, causing the digital wallet to be vulnerable to loss if it fail.
