This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Need new antivirus on my Mac as it runs out soon. I've always used Norton and couldn't find any deals on here. This is the best price I could find for multiple devices (also same price at John Lewis). Basically want to know if this is a good deal and what are peoples thoughts re protection for a Mac. Any thoughts please, thanks

Any alternatives you would recomend - I know there are loads of free software versions out there but bit concerned re trust/accountability. If i get free software and something goes wrong I have no one to hold accountable, at least with Norton i have some sort of guarentee?
I'd go for Norton 360 for £19.99 Includes a few more things including a VPN

Thanks, I've been looking through the various options and was getting a bit confused, especially seeing as they are all similarly priced - so the '& utilities' part refers to the VPN?
It does a few "housekeeping" things. The VPN is a seperate part. Mainly it is the bigger brother to Antivirus Deluxe. The main advantage is the VPN in my opinion (so not an expert but had no virus problems using Norton for years)

Looks like a good deal, I’ve never heard of computeractive before, do you know if they send a code in an email or in the post?
And Chris's deal is much better. Just checked and it's the one I have at a very good price :-)

Definitely a great deal if you want Norton
You can buy keys for the full version of most antivirus packages for a few quid from sites like kinguin, gamivo and eneba.

I did for Kaspersky and it’s working fine
Is Kaspersky good? I use the free version (so am aware that I am the product), but is it worth paying for?

It covers up to 10 devices, so i am not sure it would be too much of an issue. I know when my Security product reaches the maximum number of devices, it asks me to login and replace one that has been registered before.......which is really simple, i just replace my old PC

The most popular free alternatives are AVG (which I use) and Avast. Both do a perfectly good job. If you are not installing pirate software or visiting porn websites you are unlikely to be exposed to malware. The difference between AVG and Norton is that Norton, as a well known established name in anti-virus, feel they have a licence to anually scam the technically unaware for £80 for their 'helpful' auto-renew service. Any company that sells you a product for £20, then surreptitiously begin billing you annually for 4 times the price are clearly scammers. The irony being they claim to be the company that will protect you from scammers! How the OFT have allowed this to continue unchecked is beyond me. Just install AVG or Avast and put up with them nagging you occasionally to upgrade to their paid versions. You don't need the additional features of the paid version, just use the freebie.

Does that include The AA? RAC? Most insurers? Profit-maximising companies are there to make money. It's not a a scam.
Why pay for AV software? Microsoft Windows defender is free!

When you first install Norton, you will be asked to create a Norton account. As long as you enter these details (username and password for your Norton account) when setting up Norton on the new computer the remaining subscription should transfer over. If anything goes wrong you are calling India. The last time I had to call Norton support, before I stopped using and recommending Norton, I waited over 40 minutes for them to answer. I was told that a monsoon had washed away one of their call centres! You are paying premium price for pound shop service. Be aware that Norton's policy is to sign you up for auto-renewal. Great, you don't have to go through the process of buying a disk, re-installing, and getting your current Norton account to recognise your new installation. Except Norton will bill you £80(!), every year, for the privilege! So to save £60 you have to buy a disk, find your Norton password, re-install, and hope it's not the monsoon season if anything goes wrong! Best to use the free version of AVG or Avast, available for PC and Mac.
Note the VPN may not play well with netflix or other streaming services. Depending on how you use them

People buying breakdown insurance have a clear understanding of what they are getting for their money. Technically not a scam, as they can get away with it, Norton's inflated auto renewal price takes advantage of the fact that people who don't understand computers, such as the poster, are not aware what a fair market price for a year's anti-virus protection is.

Doesn't make it a scam. When you take out any product, simply opt-out of the auto-renewal. The issue is people do not read T&Cs.

No evidence either way.

I am hostile to Norton, with having to uninstall this prog from numerous Windows computers belonging to my friends. My experience its a money exhorting auto-renew scam.
Anti-virus capability is very suspect!! Sorry that is my honest opinion, if you want to buy this 'I am safe' go ahead,

I feel you don't need it. The best anti-virus is in between ears..............stop clicking on click-bait on your device! email attachments etc

No anti-virus programme will help if you are stupid!

Haha at last someone with a decent comment. I fix computers for a living and am constantly having to educate my customers about this because not only is it useless it uses so much system power it slows down your system massively. Most slow computers I get these days is always the third party security that's slowing the system down.
