Customizing your Norton product settings

The default Norton product settings provide a safe, automatic, and efficient way to protect your computer. However, if you want to change or customize your protection settings, you can access most features from the Settings window.

You can configure the Norton product settings in the following ways:

  • You can use the On/Off switch to turn on or turn off a feature. When you turn off a feature, the color of the On/Off switch turns red, which indicates that your computer is vulnerable to security threats. When you turn on a feature, the color of the On/Off switch turns green, which indicates that your computer is protected against security threats.

  • You can drag the slider of a protection feature to your preferred setting. Most often, your Norton product provides the slider setting for you to decide whether to resolve security threats automatically or ask you before it takes an action.

  • You can configure a protection feature by either selecting the options that are provided for the configuration or by providing the required information. Most of these options are available as check boxes for you to check or uncheck.

    You can also use the Use Defaults option to reset the configuration to the default level.

  • You can select a preferred option from the drop-down list.

  • You can check or uncheck the Quick Controls options to turn on or turn off a feature.

The Norton product also provides the Use Defaults option in most of the Settings window. You can use this option to reset the configuration to the default level.

To customize the Norton product settings

  1. In the Norton product main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, click the protection feature that you want to customize.

  3. In the window that appears, set the option to your preferred settings.

    You may need to click a tab to access the settings that are listed under that tab.

  4. In the Settings window, do one of the following:

    • To save the changes, click Apply.

    • To close the window without saving the changes, click Close.

Thank you!

Thank you for using Norton Support.
