Create your Norton Privacy Manager password and Sudo profile for Windows and Mac

The first time you launch Norton Privacy Manager you are prompted to sign into your Norton account to create a password and primary Sudo profile. These let you use the app to browse, send emails, and save login details without exposing your personal information.

Before you set up the Norton Privacy Manager app, do one of the following:

  • Ensure that you have Microsoft Windows 7 (all versions) with Service Pack 1 (SP 1) OS or later

  • Ensure that you have the latest version of Mac OS
