1 Year protection for 3 PCs: Do I need to activate all 3 licences at the same time?

I recently purchased NIS 1 year protection for 3 PCs. Can I activate the licences at different times, or do have to activate them at the same time i.e install the software and enter the product key on all 3 PCs in the same day? If I could activate the licenses at different times, is there any time limit for doing so?

You can activate the license at different times but the days remaining depends on the date you first activate the product.  Therefore, your other activations are limited to the time after your first activation.  For example, you activate your first product today and 30 days you decides to activate your second product by installing on another PC.  The days remaining when you activate the second product is 30 days less than the days you first activate the product.  The days for all three devices (regardless of whether you use the remaining activations or not) "count down" from your first activation.

Hi,

 

As pointed out by Darksta, You can activate it at different times, its not an issue.

This product key can also be used to activate for next releases too if all three keys are unused till that time. But if its NIS key, then can be used for NIS releases only likewise for N360 as well.

 

Regards,

Also, please look at this tool to help you manage your Norton security products.

 

It helps you transfer licenses form one machine to another amongst other features.
