Norton setup is a reliable security program that protects your data, devices and personal information from cybercriminals. Norton offers a wide range of products, including antivirus and internet security suites. Evaluate your security needs to determine the right product for you. After you have purchased an Norton subscription, you need to enter your product key or activation codes to download and install the software.

The Norton UI is slick, modern, and easy to navigate. The main view lets you to see the results of the scan, as well as any active threats and configure settings for the features integrated into the program. From here, you can customize antivirus scans, create updates for the program and its extensions and manage a VPN connection as well as access dark web and privacy monitoring reports, and manage cloud backup. The program also includes password managers, which can help you create and store secure login credentials for your online accounts.

However, the performance hiccup that Norton’s security and optimization tools is substantial. UL’s Procyon test simulation saw an increase of nearly 10% when running a full-scan and about 6% when it was idle. Even a simple file cleanup took longer than three minutes, a lengthy time compared to Windows’ own built-in tool for the task.

Other features worth looking into include the dark web and privacy monitoring, which notifies you when your personal information is found on the internet, and parental controls, which allow you to limit screen time for children and promote a healthy approach to offline and online activities. Finally, Norton offers cloud backups which save your files to the cloud and can be restored if your computer experiences a catastrophic loss or is hit by ransomware.
