Add the Norton browser extensions on Mac

You are prompted to add the Norton browser extensions when you open the web browser for the first time. You must enable the Norton browser extensions to easily access all the browser-specific features of Norton Security. Norton provides you the browser focus feature where the browser extension alert appears only when you focus the browser. The browser-specific features of Norton Security include:

  • Norton Safe Web

  • Norton Safe Search

  • Norton Home Page

  • Norton Password Manager

Norton adds the extensions to Safari, Firefox, and Google Chrome browsers. If you have Mac OS X 10.10.x or later, the Norton standalone browser extensions are available even after you uninstall your Norton product. If you uninstall your Norton product on Mac OS X 10.9 or earlier, all the browser extensions pertaining to Safari and Firefox are removed except for extensions installed on Chrome browser.

Norton Safe Web, Norton Home Page, Norton Safe Search, and Norton Password Manager standalone extensions are not supported on Mac OS X 10.9 or earlier, and on the older version of the web browsers. To install the latest Norton browser extensions, upgrade your Mac operating system to 10.10.x and above, and update your web browsers to the latest version.

For more information about the Norton Browser extension, see Norton Browser Protection extensions.
