Adding your child to Norton Family

After you register, you can add your children to Norton Family. As you add each child, specify the birth year of the child. This helps Norton Family protect your child with predefined House Rules that are based on their age.

You can customize the House Rules so that they make sense for each child's maturity level. Depending on your situation, use Norton Family website or Android app to configure your family settings. You cannot use Norton Family for iOS to configure or adjust the settings.
