Alternative for Norton ConnectSafe

Hi,

As a Norton Home user & Symantec User (Symentec Endpoint protection) I am using Norton Connectsafe in home & office.

I configured that from past many years & forget it.

But today I read about Retirement of that.  And in FAQ

There’s no direct replacement for ConnectSafe within Norton’s product portfolio.

So what is solution for user by this forum's Experts?

FWIW ~ my DNS is Cloudflare.  I do not need filtering.

Re: Alternative for Norton ConnectSafe

Quad9 offers protection similar to Norton ConnectSafe.

https://www.quad9.net/

Quad9 does not filter content though.  If you need that feature, maybe consider OpenDNS.

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

I switched to OpenDNS for the type of filtering the ConnectSafe provided. So far it seems to be giving the same protection level.

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