Antivirus protection is an absolute necessity for your digital security, but for comprehensive security you should upgrade to a full-blown security suite. Where the basic Norton AntiVirus Plus is Windows-only, Symantec Norton 360 Deluxe lets you protect Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS devices. It adds a full-powered VPN, Dark Web Monitoring, Parental Control, and more. Windows users get special enhancements including a two-way firewall and 50GB of hosted storage for your online backups. This suite packs a ton of features, for a very reasonable price.
A year’s subscription to Norton 360 Deluxe lists for $99.99, which gets you five security suite and VPN licenses to use on your devices. That’s impressive, given that after the first year, Norton’s VPN alone would cost $89.99 per year. Webroot’s cross-platform suite runs $79.99 for five licenses, while Trend Micro Maximum Security ‘s is $89.95 per year for three. McAfee Total Protection costs the same per year as Norton, but the subscription lets you install protection on every device in your household.

The current Norton product line puts a strong emphasis on making sure customers use all the security features to which they’re entitled. To that end, the My Norton dashboard clearly lists the many security components of Symantec Norton 360 Deluxe.
Device Security on a Windows device should look familiar to long-time Norton users. A status banner includes statistics such as licenses available and how long since the last scan, while five large button panels represent five major security areas.
Dark Web Monitoring
The top-tier Norton suites include the LifeLock identity-theft mitigation service; the suite reviewed here does not. Even so, users get the benefit of Dark Web Monitoring, powered by LifeLock.
Norton’s firewall component blocks attacks from outside and ensures that local program don’t misuse their access to the internet and network. It handles program control without inflicting popup queries on the user.
Norton Secure VPN
Your Norton subscription includes five licenses for Norton Secure VPN, a significant value.
New since our last review, the SafeCam feature warns user when an app attempts to access the webcam, with an option to allow or deny access.
Parents configure the parental control system online, while local agents for Windows, iOS, and Android (but not macOS) enforce the house rules. The system clearly states the house rules, so the kids know what’s expected.
My Norton makes an appearance on Android devices, naturally. The Mobile Security app offers antivirus and anti-theft protection, along with a large collection of other Android security components.
Norton’s unusual App Advisor checks every app that you examine in Google Play and warns of any privacy risks or unusual behavior. A tap on the warning ribbon brings up more detail.
Norton Deluxe on macOS
While it doesn’t have all the features of the Windows edition, Norton Deluxe on macOS goes well beyond the basic functions of an antivirus utility.
Norton consistently outperforms the competition in independent tests: Winner of AV-TEST’s Best Protection Award and 37 time winner of PCMag Editors’ Choice Award. Their newest rebrand has a TON of included features for $60, including: 50 GB Cloud Backup, Password Manager, Parental Control, Secure VPN, SafeCam and Dark Web Monitoring powered by LifeLock.
Please note that if you have an existing Norton subscription, your old subscription days do not get added to this new subscription, so it’s best to activate your new subscription when the old one is about to expire.
