Norton Setup Review

Norton setup is a powerful security program that protects your devices, data and your identity from cybercriminals. Explore the wide range of Norton products, ranging from antivirus to internet security suites, and assess your unique security needs to determine the best option for you. After you’ve purchased a subscription, input your activation or product key to download and install the software.

The Norton UI has a modern appearance and is simple to use. The main view lets users see the results of a scanning and any active threats, as well as setting up the settings of the software and its features. You can personalize antivirus scanning and update the program as well as its extension as well as manage a VPN, access dark web reports and privacy monitoring reports, and manage cloud backup. The program also includes password managers that help you create and store secure login credentials for your online accounts.

Norton’s security tools and optimization tools do have a significant effect on performance. UL’s Procyon test simulation saw the performance drop by nearly 10% in a full scan as well as around 6% when it was idle. Even a simple cleanup took over three minutes. This is a long time compared to Windows the built-in tool.

Other features worth investigating include the dark web and privacy monitoring, which alerts you when your personal information is uncovered on the internet and parental controls that help you limit screen time for children and promote a balanced approach to offline and online activities. In addition, Norton offers cloud backups which save your files to the cloud and can be restored if your computer experiences a major loss or is hit by ransomware.
