Last year, Norton decided to change to a new subscription model. Some aspects of it are great, such as the ability to finally protect a realistic number of devices affordably under one license. The three device limit was too limited even a decade ago, let alone now. With Norton premium, I can protect 10 devices for a realistic price. Considering the size of my family and the number of computing and mobile devices we use, even that isn't sufficient to cover every device but at least all of the most vulnerable devices like our PC's are covered.
It appears Norton has gone completely cloud based. I ordered the so-called retail package instead of the cloud version from Amazon. I was sent a box with a card inside that had an activation URL and a key code on it. That's it. Honestly, they should stop offering the retail version altogether if that's the case. At least ship the cards in envelopes or something else smaller than traditional sized software boxes large enough to hold a jewel-cased optical disk and instruction manual.
Norton Security Premium works on PC's, Macs, smartphones and tablets. I can speak from both personal experience and feedback from other users that although it technically "works" on Apple devices, it's pretty much worthless in OSX and iOS. It is great on Android and Windows devices, offering true protection and no noticeable performance hit. It can actually do more harm than good to Macs and offers nothing useful at all on iOS devices. Apple owners, save your loot, seriously.
Installation is usually straightforward. In the past, I'd simply uninstall the previous version and install the new version. It seems that recent past versions did a much better job of removing all of the files it installed. The new Norton Security seems to be falling back into some of the bad habits of much earlier versions of Norton, leaving files behind that can interfere with subsequent installs. I had a few hiccups with my new installation and activation that I hadn't encountered in at least the past 3-4 years. Once installed, it offers antivirus and malware protection as well as online protection, automated backup and 25 GB of cloud storage. Basically, I only use the AV/malware portion. It also offers child monitoring features through Norton Family but they can be had for free with a Norton account. In fact, the Premier version of Norton Family will set you back fifty-bucks regardless of which version of Norton Security you own.
Norton goes way out of the way to make retail upgrades... well, actually, there is no such thing because a new retail license is just that, a new retail license. True upgrades have to be purchased directly from Symantec. Despite being offered the option to enter a new product key in my recently expired subscription, it didn't work in either the online management or the desktop client. I had to create a new subscription in my account, uninstall the expired client and download and re-install the client from the new subscription tab. Speaking of tabs, Norton management provides no way to delete expired subscription tabs. I have fifteen tabs for products dating back years and fourteen of them are expired. Each has a button offering to renew but none has an option to delete. It's cluttered and ridiculous looking. I'm almost ready to create a new Norton account because I'm so tired of the messy interface. Despite some good points like dynamic online management of specific device licenses, the entire management scheme seems very clumsy.
So that's my take. Norton Security does a good job of protecting my PC with minimal impact on the resources. It is pretty much worthless on my Mac and iOS devices but they don't really need quite as badly as my other devices anyhow. Plus, I have better options, at least on my Mac. Activation and renewal seem to have gotten clumsier with the new version along with uninstalling. Those minor headaches are no reason to jump ship. Best of all, it protects 10 PCs for pretty much the same price I paid to protect a paltry number of three PC's as recently as a year ago.
Norton/Symantec tried to simplify their product lines this past year or so by eliminating Norton 360, Norton Internet Security, and various other products that made it hard for folks to choose the right package for their needs. All were replaced with "Norton Security" - which led to a lot of grumbling from many about lost features. As far as I can tell, all the features of the previous products are now included within Norton Security EXCEPT the tool that would clean up the Windows registry. That's still gone.
The initial simplification to a single product, "Norton Security", has now been made more complex by there being three versions of Norton Security: Standard, Deluxe and Premium. Review the image of the back of the box to see the feature differences (or go to the Norton web site). The Premium edition reviewed here covers Windows-based PC's, Macs and portable devices as well as offers 25GB of cloud storage for backups. Whether you need these additional features or not, the price per device for 10 activations makes this 10-device license very worthwhile.
I've been a Norton user for many years and find the impact on performance of having Norton to be extremely minimal (unlike some years ago). My only complaint is that Live Update consistently (and for years) says that it has just checked for updates, but if I run it manually, it finds a lot of updates to download and install. So, I don't trust the automatic updating and run Live Update myself at least once a week.
Installing on additional devices is a breeze as you can just log onto your Norton account and download the most up-to-date version there, obtaining a license. If you run out of licenses and need to reallocate one, your Norton account web page allows you to deactivate any device.
(There is no disk - all software is installed via web download.)
You've likely seen other reviews talking about their ridiculous licensing scheme.. when your year license is close to expiring, they offer you a "discount" which makes their renewal price far more than you'll pay for a retail license for this product. If you buy an new retail license, Symantec provides a way for you to register your new license key to your accounts, however, doing so will create a "New" license tab (not a renewal) which will NOT continue the protection on all your computers.You will have to uninstall the software from EVERY protected computer/device and then re-install it with the new licensed software in order to cover those computers for another year. This doesn't happen if you pay them their high price of renewal, which suggests this is deliberate, to offer no cheaper alternative to renewing directly through them. This creates the headache of visiting every computer/device to un/re-install. If you have family members in other state, as I do, this makes protecting them a chore.
All in all, it works great but 1. When I pay for a software product, the expectation is that it is not "Ad Based". I don't want to see a constant barrage of large popup windows telling me about all their other products or how they're always on the job protecting me. 2. Don't create such a nightmare for renewing or re-licensing the product.
