Upgrading to NS - does it automatically link to account

Hello I am about to upgrade to NS from NIS (my annual subscription is about to run out anyway). My intention is to just follow the upload instructions and put it on top of my current NIS install. So, will this new installation automatically be linked/connected to my account? And how about then putting it on other machines (I have a five machine licence). Will they then also be linked to my account. I am sure this has been asked before, but I am really after a "walk through" to give me confidence. Thank you

Re: Upgrading to NS - does it automatically link to account

During the installation of NS, your NIS will be uninstalled. Be sure you choose the setting to retain your settings. Then the new product will be installed. I cannot remember if it will automatically pick up your account information or if it will ask for your email address for your Account. You will have to enter the new product key into that installation.

For your other machines. From the machine you want to install on, you can log into your Norton Account and click on the Services tab. Select the new Norton Security product in the list at the top. From there, you click on Download and it will download and install a preactivated copy of the new product on your computer. Repeat this for each device you have.

Let us know if you need any other help.

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

Thank you. So essentially you are saying that there is a mechanism for linking the new product to my account as part of the install. That's good then otherwise it would have been a pain.

Hi,marklydarkly. Also, in the Norton UI in NS, you will see a tab listed as More Norton.

Click on that, and follow the simple instructions to install NS on your other devices.
