Norton security premium vs New Norton 360 Upgrade

Got email to upgrade to New Norton 360,  I'm curious what is the difference would be, additional VPN I see, Add-On lifeblock service for additional cost, but not clear on if there is any other changes or license changes. I'm not a fan of lifeblock, What would the differences be, Why should I upgrade or not?

Re: Norton security premium vs New Norton 360 Upgrade

all of those are 5 PCs subscriptions, so would that mean when I upgrade it would knock from 10 PC premium to 360 5 PC? yeah not such a great idea.

so it's basically a switch from yearly plan to monthly with hefty price increase.

You should have a Norton 360 Premium version with the VPN and 100GB cloud drive for 10 devices (without lifelock). Otherwise anyone who has 6 or more devices is not worth paying 200 dollars, it is exaggeratedly expensive.

You must not be reading the 360 details, because there's levels in Norton 360 that match current plans, i.e. 5 devices -> 10 devices. Read People

Because I read the details I know that only the advanced and ultimate version (200 and 300 dollars) have protection of 10 devices that is very expensive. It was what I wrote, I suggest you read again.

From the Norton 360 web page and bjm_'s post above 

  • Norton™ 360 with LifeLock™ Advantage covers up to 10 devices

So the only way to get the 10 user subscription is to also purchase the Lifelock service. Which will bring the cost considerably higher than you now pay for the NS Premium subscription.

I have already brought the issue with users of more than 5 devices needing another subscription level to the attention of our Norton contacts. But we have to remember that the marketing departments now seem to be running the show.  And Lifelock is only available in the USA, so any 'international' customers need something else.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Here is a comparison from the Norton site.

Their site is not very clear as you can get different information on different pages.

Oh Yes, and don't forget 'Offers' that pop up on the taskbar to 'upgrade'.
