NORTON IS A SCAM

published

I bought Norton 2 years ago for 29.99 and was not informed about their auto-renew policy, or the ridiculous price increase.

if the service were good, I would have no complaints whatsoever, however, you are being charged for a product that first of all is inferior, and second of all, you are being charged for a premium that is not worth its cost.

do not buy Norton, you have better options that are cheaper and provide much better services, such as Kaspersky.

Purchased at norton for $122.72.

Norton Scam; took money out of my account without my knowledge or permission.

published

I am a uni student and I went to get groceries but my card declined. I checked my bank account and Norton took money out of my account without my knowledge or permission. It left me with nothing. The money was taken out a month and a half before my year subscription ended. When I talked to them on the phone they were rude and condescending. I do not recommend Norton.

There is no support or assistance right from purchase

published

I purchased a Norton 360 anti virus 2 year subscription at JB HiFi, but when I tried to register the product I could not read the product code. Norton were not interested. They had their money and did not care that I could not use the product.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $379.

It just scans to sell you more

published

I don't know if it protects, all I know is it tells me to scan my computer and network for issues and then when it finds some tells me the solution is to buy more protection. I thought that is what I bought!

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi for $200.

Bunch of internal ads, cripples PC speed

published

Drives me insane how every day I receive a notification on the bottom right of my page how Norton can help make my PC better or profile more secure and it takes me to an ad to spend more money. Find it also uses way more CPU than it should. Looking elsewhere and cancelling after 2 years of pain

Purchased in for $100.

I am stuck with Norton forever.

published

I have no opinion on whether Norton is good antivirus software but I do know that 5 years after stopping my subscription I am inundated with emails and pop ups which no amount of unsubscribing will stop. I feel like Norton is a virus in itself.

The annoying advert is enough for me!!

published

Their current advertisement on TV with the Password “hack me” and then the annoying kid yelling out to its mother for her birthdate for the password is the MOST ANNOYING ADVERT ON TV EVER!!!!! I would NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT BECAUSE OF THEIR ADVERT AND I NOW CHANGE CHANNELS WHEN THAT STUPID ANNOYING ADVERT COMES ON TV.

We had this product a few years ago and it was annoying as even after it expired it kept coming up on my screen with spam to sign up and not allowing me to easily start my day in front of the computer. And I could not get rid of this spam!

Annoying and useless

published

So many pop ups. Especially one constantly asking me to restart my computer, and then after restarting saying it was unable to do what it wanted to do... then the pop ups continued appearing. The most frustrating and useless app ever.

I have recently installed Norton 360 Premier on an older laptop which previously had Trend micro (with no problems), but now every time I shut down or sleep the laptop on restarting or resuming the clock has reset to when the computer was initially set up in 2008. Does this happen to anyone else and how do I fix it?
