Activate your Norton service

To use all of the Norton features, you must first activate your service. Activation reduces software piracy and ensures that you have authentic Symantec software.

If you are connected to the Internet, activation takes place automatically when you start the service for the first time after installation. If you did not activate during installation, the Norton prompts for activation each time you start the service. Also, you receive an activation alert regularly until you activate the service.

  1. Start your Norton service.

  2. In the main window, click Renew or Activate Now.

    You can also click Activate Now from the activation alert.

  3. If prompted, sign in to your Norton account with your Norton account credentials.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • If you have product key, click Enter a key, type the product key, and follow the on-screen instructions.

    • If you have any licenses available, select the subscription and follow the on-screen instructions.

    • If you want to purchase a license, click Buy a Subscription. You are redirected to Norton Store website where you can complete your purchase.

Thank you!

Thank you for using Norton Support.
