Message: "...You haven't finished Setup and your computer is not protected..." on Mac

When you install the latest version of your Norton product, you need to configure the Security & Privacy settings to allow Norton System Extensions. If you did not complete these steps, you see this error message and a prompt to complete the configuration to finish the setup.

To fix this problem, depending on your operating system, select one of the following:

I have macOS X Catalina (10.15.x) or later

  1. In the Norton alert window, click Finish Setup.

  2. In the Norton installation window that appears, click Open Preferences.

    If you already have a Norton product installed and installing an update, in the Update Completed window, click OK and skip to step 7.
