- 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?

It’s use gives peace of mind if ever in doubt.

I evaluated Norton Genie by using it to analyze two text messages I received today: one was a political fundraising message via Winred, and the other was a suspicious message resembling a common delivery scam, claiming an undelivered package from USPS or UPS. The AI assistant effectively identified the nature of both messages, aligning with my initial suspicions.

In an era where scamming tactics are increasingly complex and aimed at manipulating individuals, it's prudent to consult an AI tool like Norton Genie when in doubt. This can provide reassurance and prevent potential deception.

So far pretty awesome

I like the ability to check texts that I get or emails to find out if I’m being scammed or not because I get so many sometimes I click on things I thought I requested information on. This has been very helpful.

Not worth the time

I downloaded this app thinking it would be helpful as I get a lot of scam emails and texts. I sent two different messages and got the same answer for both. Sorry we can’t tell if this is a scam or not. Really? One of the emails was from Norton approving my purchase of their software, which I didn’t buy. What a joke. I immediately deleted the email and the app. If they can’t even recognize someone using their company in a scam, what good is it. Very disappointing as I use Norton for my protection. May have to reconsider their product
