For years Norton has been synonymous with security and Norton 360 is a brand new comprehensive "do it all" suite that continues its fine tradition of offering protection for all your devices (PC, Mac, iOS or Android).
Once installed Norton 360 presents you with a home screen where you can control and launch the included applications.
First up is Norton Security which offers strong anti-malware protection that monitors files and programs not just for known threats but for suspicious behaviour too, helping block malware before it can gain a foothold on your system. You also get a firewall, silently blocking attacks from both outside and inside your PC. Web Safety components check the links you click to make sure they’re safe to visit, while downloaded files are screened and checked for both security and reliability. In addition, you get comprehensive tools to keep your PC maintained with file cleanup, disk optimisation and a startup manager.
Norton 360 now bundles Secure VPN which used to be a paid component. A VPN is essential for browsing the web from a mobile device particularly on an unsecure wifi network. You can use your VPN to locate yourself in another country, which is good for watching TV whilst abroad or simply to create a secure tunnel to the internet to stop hackers finding your real location and IP address.
Dark Web Monitoring is now included and supported by Norton LifeLock. The Monitoring tool will keep one eye on your information, such as email address and/or password, then check to see if this has been compromised online. If it has, it will warn you and you can quickly change your password(s).
Cloud Backup is included. The amount of storage differs depending on your Norton plan (Standard users receive 10GB, Deluxe 50GB, Premium 75GB), but as this store is designed for your essential files, in case your system is ever either compromised or you suffer from a Ransomware attack. You can quickly get your data back on to your devices from your Cloud Backup.
Norton 360 now includes a multi-device Password Manager. This enables you to securely store your login data and passwords through Norton and access them from any device (where you have Norton installed). A plugin for Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Opera gives you quick access direct from your browser.
Parental Controls is the last module supplied by Norton 360. Simply create your family network (children up to 17 years of age), then decide their restriction level (based on their age), choose their device and install Norton 360 on their device. You will then have access to their internet habits, browsing times/restrictions and monitor their behaviour online.
Please note, Norton 360 replaces the previous Norton Security and Norton Security with Backup, but Norton 360 is a seriously powerful suite of security tools giving you what you had before with Norton Security, but adds the Secure VPN, a Password Manager, Cloud Backup and more. Recommended!
This Norton offer is available to US users only.
This version includes a 3-Device, 15-Month license. This means you can use this licence to activate three different devices (a mix of PC, Mac, iOS, Android), for 15 months. Includes 25GB of cloud backup storage.

Most system performance issues are often a result of other software clashing with your brand new software. For instance, security software can clash with a background process, such as a system maintenance tool or defragmentation software. Another cause of system slowdown, is a result of two software applications performing a similar task. As an example, Windows includes a firewall switched on as a default. Your new security suite is likely to include a firewall. You only need one firewall running. In this example, try turning off your system firewall.
Uninstalling Your New Software
Occasionally you may need to either temporarily or permanently remove your new software.
On a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Locate the program within the list, then click it to highlight it. Finally, click the Uninstall button at the top of the list and follow the instructions to remove the program from your PC.
On an Apple Mac computer, using Finder, locate the Applications folder. Within the Applications folder, find the name of the application you wish to remove. Simply drag the icon to your Trash icon in your dock. Empty the Trash to remove the files from your computer.
Still Having Problems?
If you cannot solve your system performance issues or are struggling to remove your software, we advise contacting the software manufacturer. If you placed an order, see the section in the order which states Support options. Alternatively, go to the Contact Us page to contact store support directly.
