Norton 360 vs. Multi-device version

I have been using 360 for a number of years.  It only supplies support for 3 pcs and I need 4.  So, I found a deal for the multi-device version (5-devices) and bought it.  I have not downloaded or installed it yet.

 

Now I'm wondering if I made a mistake.  What features will I lose if I install the multi-device product on my 4 pcs from what I have now?

Welcome,
Why would you expect to lose any features? The multi-device version just allows you to put Norton protection on devices other than a desktop or a laptop.

Keep us posted

Re: Norton 360 vs. Multi-device version

It's a good question and one I asked myself privately of Norton and I don't think I got a complete answer.

 

If you look at  http://us.norton.com/norton-360-multi-device/  and click on the Comparison Chart TAB it looks as if it is only the first section that you do NOT get if all 4 N360's are running Windows.

 

Sorry I cannot paste it in here.

 

Have you looked at a 5 PC version of N 360 ?

Norton list N360 5PC at $130 so $33 if you only use 4 or I see it on Amazon for $73 ...

Re: Norton 360 vs. Multi-device version

Thanks for your response.  My reason for concern is that when I look at the product comparison at Symantec's web site, I see several "check-marks" missing in the feature comparison listing:

a. Spam email filter

b. Targets and eliminates hard-to-remove threats

c. Website reputation review for safety

d. Secure passwords

 

a couple others as well.

 

It could be that I'm reading the product comparison chart wrong, but why do you think there is a difference?  I guess it's possible that the differences are related to no-pc devices but I don't know for sure.
