Today we’re sharing the exciting update that we’re taking Norton DNS for PC users out of beta. As you may recall, Norton DNS was launched in May as part of our Norton Everywhere announcement, which aims to take our consumer business beyond the PC. Since that launch, Norton DNS has gained more than 250,000 beta users from 112 different countries. These users have enjoyed a safer internet experience from the more than 1.4 million malware block pages per month that have been displayed when users encountered harmful websites.
Many people don’t know that they can change their DNS settings or what benefits such a change could provide so, we’ve made it really easy. Norton DNS provides a faster, safer and more reliable Internet experience that integrates basic Web security protection services like antiphishing, antimalware and anti-spyware via Norton site reputation filtering. It is available for any device where the DNS settings can be changed to point to a Norton DNS server (including Mac, PC, and Android) – and because it works independent of any web browser, all are supported.
For those who already have the Norton DNS beta PC client installed, an update notification will allow them to opt to update to the latest released client. Those who manually changed the PC/router DNS settings to use Norton DNS, no action is required. For new users, we’ve introduced an easy-to-use wizard that takes the guess work out of DNS set-up and allows you to switch your settings over in a few simple steps. We’ll walk you through those steps here:
Visit http://nortondns.com/ and select either the PC or Mac Norton DNS client to download to your computer’s desktop.
Once you’ve downloaded either the Windows or Mac client to your computer, double click the Norton DNS Icon and select “Run”.
Accept the Norton Licensing agreement and complete the wizard installation.
You are now running Norton DNS and will benefit from a faster, safer and more reliable Internet browsing experience! Please share your feedback in the comments below after trying it out, we’re looking forward to hearing from you.
