Turning on or turning off Personal Information Protection

Norton Family prevents your child from sharing personal information over the Internet. You can specify the personal information of your child in Norton Family. When you turn on Personal Information Protection, Norton Family blocks any attempt by the child, whether it is accidental or on purpose, to send any personal information over the Internet.

In addition, Norton Family will notify you when your child attempts to send the personal information to anyone over the Internet.

By default, if your child sends personal information on a secure website, Norton Family does not block or monitor this activity. The URL of a secure website starts with "https" instead of "http". For example, if your child sends personal information on Gmail, Norton Family does not monitor or block the personal information.
