Norton Security

I picked up Norton, as I usually do, during the cyber Monday sales.

This year it was the newly packaged Norton Security product that is good for up to 5 devices including iPads and iPhones.

Prior to this we have only ever used it on our two PC's. We also have two iPads.

Should we even bother loading it on our iPads? I have had conflicting information on this. If not, I will just pass on the remaining licenses to my daughter. Thoughts?

I would not install on anything. We used to use it but it really slowed down our computers and was bothersome with its updates. I consider the program a virus.

We have 2 pc's, 2 macs, 2 iPads, and 4 iPhones. Windows and macs have built in security which work fine for us. We do install Microsoft security essentials (free).

I use the free version of AVG Antivirus on my PC. Nothing on my IPAD or iMAC. I do have the paid version (they have a free version) of Malewarebytes for my PC. I have two teenagers that use my PC and haven't had any problems yet.

Although rare, it is possible to read something on this forum you don't agree with and simply move on with your life
