About Norton AntiVirus

Norton Security is an on-premise anti-virus and identity protection software designed to help individuals and businesses of all sizes protect desktops, mobile devices, and data from hack attempts, malware, ransomware, and unauthorized access. The platform includes a firewall, which automatically tracks online traffic and data exchange across the internet and blocks suspicious activities to secure personal data and files from malicious attacks.

Norton Security’s password manager allows administrators to create, store, and access complex passwords from an encrypted online vault and facilitates secure internet browsing on shared or public Wi-Fi connections using the built-in virtual private network (VPN). It offers a host of features, such as cloud data backup, stolen wallet protection, credit and dark web monitoring, remote learning management, and more. Parents can also utilize the parental control functionality to monitor online activities and application download history and implement content filtering to ensure a safe browsing environment.

Norton Security includes privacy monitoring, which lets users scan and block data broker websites from accessing personal information like phone number, address, or date of birth. Enterprises can also receive text, email, or in-app notifications about data breaches, illegal identity verifications, potential threats, and other security issues.

Norton Antivirus a.k.a The Computer Bodyguard.

I did myself a huge favor by installing Norton on my work laptop. It is as secure as I could expect it to be. I'm covered by Data Breach Notifications, Fictitious I.D Monitoring as well as Credit Card Activity Alerts. I'm good.

Pros

You get 50GB cloud storage space, a secure VPN, Dark Web monitoring, Password Manager, Parental Control and my favorite feature of all, SafeCam. Norton can actually notify you when your webcam has been compromised and cyber-criminals are trying to hack their way into it. Should this happen to you, Norton will block them from being able to access your webcam... how cool is that?

Cons

When it runs its operations in the background, I sometimes see that it hinders the system performance of my laptop. Granted it is not to demanding of my resources but I do still notice a slight lag when I'm using my applications.

Overall experience is that I'm happy with the service/product as it works perfectly well in detecting and eliminating viruses.

Pros

We constantly scan any files that we download as a business. We trust the Norton brand because we take security seriously.

I trust and download products online because I know that the downloads are virus-free. It is easy to navigate the tool, and all viruses are easily detected and eliminated.

The Norton AntiVirus was easy to set up and use.

I feel safe when I download any type of content. Whenever I download something, I get a notification letting me know it's been scanned and is safe.

I downloaded the free trial and was really happy with how quickly I got my account set up and started using it. It would have taken me hours to try to find these files on my own, now it's easy.

Cons

Sometimes it can be a bit complex to use as there is no manual to navigate the program, for less tech-savvy people it may be a hindrance.

The customer service for this product is not worth the renewal. I had a terrible time with the customer service rep who did not speak English, and when I asked for a supervisor he denied me.

It takes a long time to setup, and so requires some patience to complete installation.

Norton Security offers excellent protection from malware, with at most a moderate impact on system performance. If you're looking purely to shield your system from attack, you couldn't do better.

Pros

Offers some of the best malware protection around.
Password manager, backup software.
Not t too much impact on system performance during scans.
Each package overlap features, with tune ups to get more protection, ajusted to your needs (from basic to premium).
Norton can be set to go into 'silent mode', which reduces signature updates and user notifications whenever another program uses the full screen, graphics, as a game or movie would; it does something similar when you power up a PC after a long period of inactivity, postponing all but the most vital updates and letting you catch up on email and social obligations without slowdowns or interruptions.
Regardless of which Norton antivirus product you get, you'll have protection against spyware, phishing emails and ransomware. Norton recently added the ability to stop nefarious changes to the system's Registry file, as well as an enhanced exploit blocker to stop potentially unwanted apps from being installed.
The firewall available is easy to adjust and set rules for.
You can use Norton Family to block web usage based on time, review what kids have been watching online, filter out offensive material and lock all covered devices for a media-free dinnertime or family meeting.
Quick-glance items show whether everything is up-to-date, when the last scan occurred and a link for a quick scan.

Cons

Few extra features in comparisson with older versions.
Still a little slow performance during scans system scans.
Lacks the extras we've come to appreciate in other antivirus suites, such as file encryption, file shredding or a secure web browser.
It doesn't have a free antivirus product, Norton has four levels of paid malware protection.
Parental controls feature is reserved for its pricest tier.
None of the Norton products offer the wide range of extra features and tools that have become common in antivirus software.

“Great PC Protection”

Reviewed on 24/11/2022

Pros

I installed Norton Antivirus in 2019. I still have the software downloaded and running on my PC. I put it on a HP laptop in which I use to do daily work. I scheduled a full scan and it displayed three viruses. It quickly removed them from my pc and prevented other malicious worms from causing harm to my drivers. The safe to search feature is awesome. It showed which websites are safe to visit by displaying a green check mark beside the search result. For example, I was visiting call conference software website and Norton alerted me that the site was secure.

Cons

To get the most out of the antivirus program you may be required to upgrade to their premium plan. However, their upgraded subscription can be costly.

I have been using Norton Antivirus for a long time now, and I can say that it has been one of the best decisions I have made. The software has helped me in so many ways over the years. It is the only antivirus software that I use on my computer.
Norton Antivirus comes with many features and security tools to help you get rid of any virus or malware on your computer. The software also helps you keep your online identity safe from hackers, phishers, and spammers by detecting any malicious websites or links.

Pros

Norton Security is a friendly security service for your computers. The antivirus program offers up-to-date updates on the most recent forms of online threats, infections, and fraud. It also has some fantastic features such as an intelligent firewall, VPN protection, as well as constant updates and threat detection.
Some security firms make their customers pay lots of money just to get the highest possible level of protection. A suite like this gives you some sort of insurance. In addition, it offers good storage capacity and parental control are also part of the package for a relatively low fee. These highlights can be just accessible as a feature with an expensive bundle, so you have to choose carefully according to your needs. The price estimates are good enough, and the security is amazing. A trustworthy name in PC security.

Cons

I noticed Norton antivirus doesn't keep their VPN on when the restart. The internet connection also slows down a lot for me. I stopped using this program because of the problems with the internet
