Norton setup is a security software that assists in keeping your devices, data and identity shielded from cybercriminals. Norton provides a broad range of products including antivirus and web security suites. Assess your security needs to determine the best option for you. After you have purchased a Norton subscription, enter your activation code or product key to download and install software.

The Norton UI is slick, modern and easy to navigate. The main view lets you to view the results of the scan as well as active threats, and to set the settings for the features integrated into the program. You can customize antivirus scanning and update the program and its extension, manage a VPN and access dark web reports and privacy monitoring reports, and manage cloud backup. The program includes password managers that help you create and save secure login credentials for online accounts.

However, the performance hit caused by Norton’s security and optimization tools is significant. The Procyon test simulator from UL showed an improvement of around 10% when running a full-scan, and around 6% when it was idle. Even a simple cleanup took over three minutes. This is a long wait when compared to Windows the built-in tool.

Other features that are worth exploring include dark web and privacy monitors, which will notify you when your data is found on the internet, and parental controls which help you limit the screen time of your children and encourage a balanced approach to both offline and online activities. Norton also offers cloud backups that save files to the cloud. These can be restored in the case of a computer crash or a ransomware attack.
