Norton Security Protection features essential security, online privacy, and personal information awareness.

Key features and benefits

When downloading this app on:

Modern Windows Devices (such as Windows 11/10 in S mode or Windows on ARM-processor), you get:

  • Device Security: Automatically scans Microsoft Store apps for suspicious activities and online privacy leaks. It also notifies you when the device is connected to a compromised Wi-Fi network or when malicious traffic is detected.

  • Internet Security (Browser Protection)1: Helps protect your device and your personal information from online scams, fraudulent websites and malicious links that install ransomware, trojans and other online threats. Online Banking Protection provides an additional layer of security when transacting with financial websites such as your bank or credit card company.

  • Norton Secure VPN: Browse more anonymously and securely with a no-log VPN. Bank-grade encryption helps keep information like passwords and bank account details secure and private. It helps block advertising and unwanted tracking technologies to avoid being tracked by online advertisers and other companies.

  • Norton Password Manager2: Determine if any of your passwords are weak and automatically create complex and unique passwords that are difficult to hack. Sync logins and other information across different browsers and devices, fill in forms with one click and autochange your weak, old or duplicate passwords.

  • Dark Web Monitoring3: Cybercriminals can meet anonymously on dark web sites to make illegal purchases of personal information. We continuously search the dark web and private forums looking for your personal information. We send you notifications should it be found.
