The two subscriptions cannot be added to make one. You will have to manage the two individually.

Alternatively, you can contact support and ask them if they can convert your two subscriptions to a NS for business subscription where you can have 20 devices covered.   https://us.norton.com/small-business

Thank you. I would like to keep two subscriptions as two for 10 devices separately, but on the same Norton account . Should I create a new account for newly purchased Norton security, new login etc. etc.?

Yes. You can have multiple subscriptions registered to the same Norton Account. It might just cause more work keeping it straight which devices are on which subscription, and keeping track of expiry dates, etc.

Thank you for your reply. Problem is - how to register this second purchased subscription, I can't find the adequate option. Some more work with assigning or tracking  doesn't matter..

On any of the devices you have Norton installed on, open Norton and click on Help, and then on Enter Product key at the bottom right. Then you can enter the new key you have. That will activate that key on your Norton Account. That computer will now be on the new subscription.

Or you can wait until the first subscription is filled up and follow the setup process that will probably ask for the new key. This would make more sense as you would not have unused activations wasting away.

Thanks a lot. I planned to do as you advised. I've got to download,  install and activate ON a NEW device ( say "second group" of computers. etc.). Both bought 10-dev. subscriptions are new, there will be no wasted activations here in the near future. I hope the procedure will be successful.

Re: How to activate more subscriptions than 10 ??

I am very grateful for your help. I had to get the full premium version of the installation (about 165 MB) (because the demo version (30 days) has no option to enter the key. All problems solved with your help.
I have a question from a different thread - I have a professional third-party firewall to accurately control inbound and outbound traffic, disabling Windows Firewall and Norton Firewall is not a problem. But there are still nag screens that tire me with unnecessary warnings that I do not intend to follow. Can I remove these warnings? If I make a mistake by asking in this thread, I'm sorry, I'm a newbie after all.

You can ignore those warnings by following the instructions in this post by SendOfJive.   https://community.norton.com/en/comment/4849823#comment-4849823

The Advanced window will be found by clicking on the Security pillar on the main Norton screen.

Re: How to activate more subscriptions than 10 ??

The link you pointed ("disable firewall warning") refers to older or another version of Norton, I guess. No posiibility to get rid of warning,shown shortly at  left down corner when booting system. I  can ignore small "x" mark on Norton icon, but I do not want to be warned of terrible danger ad mortem defaecatam . BTW I've already explored almost all pillars, i.e. options when configuring NSPremium. Some options seem to be slightly hidden or functioning in the way not clear for me - i.e I'd like to exclude network (mapped from server) drives from deep scanning, because server has its own Norton. Unfortunately, deep scan always looks for malware on those drives. Thus the procedure lasts some more centuries. Mapped does not mean network, I see, but I have to exclude those drives manually. I'd welcome another solution, since those mapped drives have different letters on different computers, some additional work to point them to Norton  is necessary ...

The information is still valid from my post to find the way to ignore a specific warning. 

Clicking on the Security pillar, and then on Advanced will bring up this next page. Hover the mouse over the Smart Firewall to get the option to ignore.

Re: How to activate more subscriptions than 10 ??

I have Norton Security Platinum (10 dev.) Polish version 22.18.0.213 installed, the latest available via update.
The "ignore" option is nowhere (for smart firewall deactivation). I can disable the firewall for xx minutes or hours, or days, permanently disable or until the next computer restart.

I think that some options of minor importance are not available for non-US users.
If so, I can't say it would be a smart solution. Or the translation is inaccurate, incompatible, inappropriate ("traduttore tradittore"). The option to ignore the warning during the health check simply disappeared. Maybe my version is a bit outdated, currently no newer PL version is available. I can install the ENG version and then check what happens.

It is possible that non English versions may have slightly different user interfaces.

Can you post a screenshot of what you see when you double click on the Security pillar?

Mea culpa ! I clicked "Status" (right side)  instead of "Smart Firewall" on the left. Thank you wholeheartedly !
