Norton device security for smartphones, tablets, and laptops

Building upon the legacy of Norton Security, Norton Internet Security, and the original Norton 360™ and powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning-based security technology, Norton™ 360 plans offer multi-layered protection, including:
  • Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) analyzes information arriving from a network (like the Internet) and helps block potential online threats before they hit your computer. (PC, Mac)
  • Antivirus with Advanced Machine Learning scans and helps remove malware files that enter a device, using emulation to test and see what files do, and machine learning. (PC, Mac, Android)
  • Reputation Protection (Insight) uses the reputation information gathered from our global network to classify software application files on their attributes. (PC)
  • Behavioral Protection (SONAR) uses artificial intelligence to classify applications based on behavior, and automatically helps block applications that display suspicious behavior. (PC)
  • Proactive Exploit Protection (PEP) helps protect against ‘zero-day’ attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in applications or the operating system. (PC)
  • Power Eraser helps detect and lets you remove high-risk applications and malware that may be residing on your computer. (PC)

Defense against today’s cyber threats.

Cyberthreats are ever-evolving. Cybercriminals can steal personal information through your computers and mobile devices, and there are a number of ways that they do it.

 

Cybercriminals can use different types of malware to get what they want, such as:
  • Cryptojacking: Malware that gives cybercriminals access to “mine” cryptocurrency on your computer, at the expense of your resources.
  • Formjacking: Malware in which cybercriminals inject malicious code into online forms to steal payment card details on legitimate websites.
  • Ransomware: Malware that encrypts a computer’s contents and then demands a ransom to restore them, usually in the form of cryptocurrency like Bitcoin
  • Remote Access Trojans (RAT): Malware that gives a cybercriminal a “back door” to remotely access a compromised computer
Cybercriminals also still use malware like viruses, worms and spyware in addition to newer techniques. Norton 360 helps defend against the ways cybercriminals infect devices with malware and compromise online privacy. That’s cyberthreat defense from a trusted leader in consumer cybersecurity.

What’s new in Norton 360?

Norton 360 plans have the same industry-leading virus and malware protection as Norton Security solutions do, plus integrate new and additional features to help protect your devices and online privacy:

Device Security
To help protect your PCs, Mac, Android, and iOS devices, security features include Password Manager to manage and generate your online passwords, PC Cloud Backup4,‡‡ to store important files and documents as a preventative measure against data loss due to hard drive failures, stolen devices and even ransomware, and Parental Control to help your kids explore the Internet more safely.
Online Privacy
Worried about your online privacy? We’ve included Secure VPN, a virtual private network service for encryption of your personal information, which is especially important on public Wi-Fi hotspots. We’ve also added PC SafeCam to help you block unauthorized access to your webcam.

Device Security Questions

Depending on your plan, we offer protection from one to three devices (PCs, Macs, Android smartphones and tablets, iPads, and iPhones). *

These days, cyber threats are more varied than a virus infecting your PC. That’s why Norton provides real-time protection against existing and emerging threats that could put your personal information at risk.
 

Yes. Norton AntiVirus Plus is ideal to help protect one PC or Mac. It offers powerful protection for your device and personal information it stores. However, Norton 360 provides multiple layers of protection for devices and online privacy for the whole family.

Spyware is unwanted software that infiltrates a device, stealing Internet usage data and personal information. Spyware is classified as a type of malware — malicious software designed to gain access to or damage a computer, often without the knowledge of the owner. Spyware gathers personal information and relays it to advertisers, data firms, or external users. Norton 360 has device security which helps protect against viruses, ransomware, malware, and other online threats as you bank, shop and post online.

In addition, here are four main steps to help protect against spyware:

  • Don’t open emails from unknown senders.
  • Don’t download files from untrustworthy sources.
  • Don’t click on pop-up advertisements.
  • Use reputable antivirus software.
     

Malware is an abbreviated form of “malicious software.” This is software that is specifically designed to gain access to or damage a computer, usually without the knowledge of the owner. There are various types of malware, including spyware, ransomware, viruses, worms, Trojan horses, adware, or any type of malicious code that infiltrates a computer.

Norton 360 has comprehensive protection against malware and spyware for your devices, that may reduce the risk of information exposure.

In addition, be careful about what email attachments you open and be cautious when surfing by staying away from suspicious websites.
 

Ransomware is a malicious software that uses encryption to hold data for ransom, the purpose of which is to extort money from the victims with promises of restoring encrypted data. Like other computer viruses, it usually finds its way onto a device by exploiting a security hole in vulnerable software or by tricking somebody into installing it.

Norton 360 has device security which protects against viruses, ransomware, malware, and other online threats as you bank, shop and post online.

In addition, help protect your data and personal information from ransomware by:

  • Update your operating system and other software. Software updates frequently include patches for newly discovered security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by ransomware attackers.
  • Don’t automatically open email attachments. Email is one of the main methods for delivering ransomware. Avoid opening emails and attachments from unfamiliar or untrusted sources.
  • Be wary of any email attachment that advises you to enable macros to view its content. Once enabled, macro malware can infect multiple files. Unless you are absolutely sure the email is genuine, from a trusted source, delete the email.
  • Back up important data to an external hard drive. Attackers can gain leverage over their victims by encrypting valuable files and making them inaccessible. If you have backup copies, the cybercriminal no longer holds the upper hand. 
  • Use Cloud Backup. This can help with data loss in case of a ransomware infection, since having copies of your files available in the cloud gives you a backup plan in case of ransomware.
     

These are fake emails that can look surprisingly legitimate. If you get tricked into clicking a link or providing information, cybercriminals can get your passwords and account numbers.

Buying subscription-based antivirus software that specifically targets phishing is one way to help protect against being scammed. Keeping antivirus software up-to-date can help keep a computer protected against ever-evolving online threats. Antivirus software can help block offending emails that come from a suspect source or contain phrases common to many phishing attempts. Antivirus software like Norton 360 can also warn subscribers when they’ve stumbled upon an unreliable website. But one of the most important way to protect against phishing is to be informed. No reputable company will ever ask their customers for account numbers, credit card numbers, logins or passwords. Never enter personal information on a website that isn’t on a secure connection.
 

A Smart Firewall for PC is the network security in Norton 360 that monitors the traffic to and from your network and can either allow or block that traffic based on a defined set of security rules.

Norton 360 Smart Firewall for PC helps protect your device and your data from malicious attacks and intrusive eyes by monitoring and helping block suspicious network traffic.
 

Helping keep your device free from viruses is at the heart of what we do. We are so confident in our antivirus and malware protection, it’s backed by a refund. If your device gets a virus our Norton experts can’t remove, you get your money back.2

Cloud Backup for PC provides a secure cloud-based storage to store important files and documents as a preventive measure against data loss due to hard drive failures, stolen devices and even ransomware.‡‡

With Norton 360, help protect your kids from online threats with Parental Control included in Norton 360 Deluxe and Norton 360 Premium, so they can enjoy their connected world more safely.

Norton 360 plans which include Parental Control comes with easy-to-use parental control tools that allows you to set screen time limits for kids11, block unsuitable sites, monitor search terms and their overall activity history.

Yes, with Parental Control from Norton 360, you can help your kids balance time spent online by scheduling screen-time limits for their device usage.11 Parental Control is included in Norton 360 Deluxe and Norton 360 Premium.

Yes, Parental Control helps your kids explore the Web more safely by keeping you informed of which sites they are visiting, as well as blocking harmful or inappropriate sites.

Yes, Parental Control provides insights into the search terms and videos8 that interest your kids and flags unsafe behavior, so you can discuss it with them.10

Secure VPN & Online Privacy Questions

Norton Secure VPN may be used on 1 or 3* Windows PCs, Macs, iOS and Android devices, with unlimited use during the subscription term, depending on your plan.

Secure VPN helps protect your online privacy by blocking intrusive activities like the tracking of your online activities or location by Internet service providers, mobile carriers, advertisers, and websites.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) creates a private, encrypted data tunnel that helps prevent cybercriminals from hacking into your Wi-Fi connection and intercepting the data you are sending and receiving from your computer or mobile devices.

Norton Secure VPN has over 2000+ servers in 30 countries/locations, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States. And this number is growing. Additionally, each country has at least two servers, so you won't always connect to the same IP or data center when you turn on the VPN and connect to any specific region.

Norton Secure VPN is replacing Norton WiFi Privacy. When Norton WiFi Privacy launched, general awareness of the function of a VPN was limited. As online privacy and security continues to make headline news, users’ awareness of what a VPN does also increases, so by changing the name, we want to drive VPN awareness and education. In addition, with the evolving threats facing consumers as well as the proliferation of free public Wi-Fi, the timing is right to provide consumers with a strong trusted VPN-focused product like Norton Secure VPN.

Yes. Norton Secure VPN is compatible with PCs, Macs, Android smartphones and tablets, iPads, and iPhones.

Free is not always free. Free VPN solutions may trade your information to help offset their costs. Others may significantly throttle your bandwidth or otherwise limit VPN data use per month, which can degrade the quality of service and/or depletes your monthly VPN data allowance if sending/streaming media like videos, pictures, music, etc. Offering Norton Secure VPN as a paid subscription allows us to deploy a powerful, yet easy-to-use VPN that helps protect your Wi-Fi connections and online privacy without the fuss that may be caused by free VPN services.

Norton Secure VPN does not impose data or bandwidth limits or third-party advertisements on you. An unlimited data and bandwidth VPN service has significant ongoing costs. Those costs are necessary to ensure your online privacy. We also offer a 60-day money-back guarantee for annual subscriptions if users are not satisfied with the service. Norton Secure VPN is also now included in Norton 360 plans.

The webcam on your PC is a great way to keep in touch with family, friends or business associates. With SafeCam5, you’ll get notified of attempts to use your webcam, so we can help you block unauthorized webcam access.
