Can I use Norton Security key to renew NIS?

I bought Norton Security 5 user product. Can I use this key to renew my subscription for NIS version 21.6.0.32 on a laptop and desktop ?

Thanx

NOPE ~ Keys as always are product / service specific ~ but, you can use the NS key to activate NS (upon install) and have Support add any remaining days from NIS

Thanks for the reply. Is there any FAQ or guide to uninstall NIS and install Security ?

You can safely install NS straight over the top of NIS if you like.  I did that except I had N360.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Another benefit of overinstalling the new NS is you will retain your settings and the local vault, if you use that feature. 

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Oh, this is good news! I renewed my NIS license about a month ago and my reluctance to upgrade to NS has been in part related to my perceived inability to keep my local vault. Now, if it is actually true that I can keep my settings, including my local vault, this means I will have one less reason for not upgrading...

That will definetly make things a lot easier if I can install on top. Thanks for the good news !!

Hi, villasbill. After you've installed NS, it's worth going over the settings as a few have changed.

Installed Security on top of NIS on 2 laptops and a desktop with no problems so far. It detected NIS and uninstalled it first. Thank you everyone for your help and responses.

Hi villasbill,

I didn't mention it but I understand you were able to keep all your NIS settings, including the local vault. Could you please confirm if this was in fact the case? 

And how is your experience with the new product as compared to the "old" NIS?

Thanks.

LinYu2,  I did an "over the top install" of  NSBU over NIS and retained my Local Vault.

Re: Can I use Norton Security key to renew NIS?

Yes I went over all my settings,they were retained. I don't really use the Vault feature. From what I could see Security is very similar to NIS,with maybe a couple extra features. vb
