Activate or renew your Norton subscription

A valid subscription ensures that your security is always up to date. You must activate or renew your subscription before the trial or subscription period ends to continue to use all of the Norton features and keep your computer protected.

Your computer must be connected to the Internet to complete the activation or renewal process.

Choose one of the following ways to activate or renew your subscription:

Renew your Norton protection

  1. Open your Norton device security product.

    If you see the My Norton window, next to Device Security, click Open.

  2. In the Norton product main window, click Renew or Activate Now.

  3. If you see the Subscription window, click Buy a subscription.

  4. On the Norton products or renewal page, review your purchase, and then click Buy Now or Subscribe Now.

  5. If prompted, sign in with your account credentials.

  6. Enter your billing information and place your order. Ensure that you review your order before making the payment.

  7. On successful purchase, your subscription gets activated or renewed automatically. Any days remaining on your existing subscription will be added to the new subscription period. For example, if you have 30 remaining days and you go for a one-year renewal, you get 395 days of protection with the product.

Activate your Norton protection with a product key

To locate the product key, see Find your Norton product key.
