Norton Secure VPN Review
What We Like
- Flexible, Competitive Pricing: The subscription cost depends on the number of devices you want to protect. You can pay as low as $4.99 for one device to $9.99 for 10 devices.
- Professional-Grade Customer Support: Because Norton is such a big company with nearly 11,000 employees worldwide,1 it offers top-tier customer support. Its website has an impressive knowledge base, and its live chat and 24/7 phone support is something we don’t see in VPNs often.
- Built-In Ad Tracker Blocking: The VPN comes integrated with an ad-blocker and tracker remover that gives users extra privacy and a better online experience.
What We Don't Like
- Kill switch on Android and Windows only: A kill switch is a crucial VPN feature, but only the Android and Windows versions of Secure VPN have a kill switch.
- Lackluster Streaming Support: If accessing streaming libraries outside of your geographical region is the main reason that you’re getting a VPN, look elsewhere as Norton Secure VPN was inconsistent in that area during our testing.
- 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 LineNorton is a trustworthy digital security brand that can provide you with decent privacy and protection from online dangers through the Norton Secure VPN. It may not be the most innovative, feature-rich VPN, but it gets the job of encrypting online data and hiding IP addresses done.
