Features and Add-ons
Norton has a ton of add-ons. What you get will depend on how much you’re prepared to spend.
The cheapest package — Norton Antivirus Basic — comes with world-class protection against viruses, spyware, malware and other online threats, but not much else. And it only works on one PC.
If you want to use Norton on a Mac or a mobile device, you’ll need to shell out the money for a Norton Security Standard package. This also includes 24/7 customer support, a firewall, and a money-back guarantee.
Norton’s more interesting features are only available on the most expensive package — the Norton Security Premium.
You’ll be able to use the software on up to 10 devices, making it a great choice if you’re super-connected or want protection for your entire family. You’ll also get an online content filter, 25GB of cloud storage, and the ability to set up automatic backups of your photos and other sensitive documents. Unfortunately, the content filter doesn’t work on Mac, which means you’ll be paying for a feature you can’t use.
Norton has also launched an encrypted password manager called Identity Safe and a VPN service called Norton WiFi privacy. However, none of these products are included in any of Norton’s packages. You’ll need to purchase them separately.
