Enable Secure VPN on Windows 10 in S mode

When you use an unsecure wireless connection, your Internet service provider (ISP) and websites can interpret sensitive details like your location, chats, and emails. You are vulnerable to hackers who seek to monitor and steal your information. Norton Security creates a Virtual Private Network (VPN) that encrypts your sensitive data. It lets you use a wireless connection in a secure way.

Turn on Secure VPN

  1. Start Norton Security.

  2. In the My Norton window, next to Secure VPN, click Turn On.

  3. If your connection still remains unprotected, select Open.

  4. In the Secure VPN window, slide the VPN switch to ON.

  5. Toggle the Ad Tracker Blocking switch to block or allow ad tracking.

    The Ad Tracker Blocking option blocks targeted advertisements. However, a small number of websites require Ad Tracker Blocking to be disabled to work properly. If you trust these websites, you can turn off Ad Tracker Blocking.

When you receive an alert from Norton Security that a man-in-the-middle attack is detected, select the recommended action from the alert window.
