I’m frequently asked by customers how to get the cheapest renewal price on Norton 360. Symantec’s renewal price is really one of the highest for any Internet Security product. It is a capable package though and worth keeping on your PC. The best way by far is to purchase a new fully licensed program at a reduced price and use the serial number from that. Nothing underhand, no fake serials etc, just a new product at a price much lower than you Norton currently quote for renewal.
The beauty of this is that you don’t have to uninstall your current product, simply match the product; eg if you have Norton 360, get a Norton 360 package with any version number (v1, v2, v3, v4, v5 or v6) as they all qualify for Norton’s free upgrade anyway!
Norton 360 free upgrade?
Yes, all versions of Norton 360 qualify for a free upgrade to the latest version of Norton 360. If you download the latest installation program, Norton will auto-detect and remove your older version and then install the newer one.
As mentioned above, you MUST match the product family. It seems that the Norton 360™ Multi-Device protection pack from Symantec (their mobile and tablet device version) does not allow the use of the standard Norton 360 version licence keys. If you are only using this on PCs and not mobile devices, then I would recommend uninstalling the Multi-Device software from each device and installing the standard Norton 360 or, better still, our preferred security suite and consistent labs test winner Kaspersky Total Security.
A word of warning. Norton products such as Norton 360, Norton Internet Security and Norton Antivirus are now retired in favour of “Norton Security” and “Norton Security with Backup”. Confused? This article explains more: New Norton product family (opens in a new window).
So to recap, if your Norton 360 has expired buy one of the Norton 360 products in our software shop (opens in a new tab) and when you open it simply use the serial number you find inside. Type this into your existing product and you’ll get another 12 months of updates (or more if you buy a 2 year package). If you want to upgrade to a newer version of another Norton product (such as Norton Security with Backup) then simply uninstall the existing software, reboot and then install the newer product.
