Resolution

No. The Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile app detects malicious apps installed on the device without monitoring the user activity on these apps and without using any specific user data stored by the apps.

The SEP Mobile app is publicly available in the official stores (Apple AppStore and Google Play) and complies with Apple's and Google's regulations that do not allow such monitoring.
