What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No PC Kill Switch: A kill switch in a VPN shuts down your online activity should you lose connection. We were disappointed that Norton Secure VPN only featured a kill switch on its Android app.
  • Lackluster Streaming Support: One of the major bonuses of using a VPN is gaining access to other countries’ streaming service libraries. We found the ability to access streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, Showtime, Disney+, HBO Max, and more) inconsistent at best, with some of the services working with the VPN in some regions but not others.
  • No P2P or BitTorrent Support: While many VPNs offer peer-to-peer and torrent downloading on specified servers, Norton Secure VPN has a blanket ban on this type of file sharing, which is disappointing.

Bottom Line

A subscription to Norton Secure VPN will encrypt your web traffic on one, five or 10 different devices.
