Re: antivirus for firestick with add-ons???

Have you tried installing Norton Wifi Privacy, NWP, on a Firestick?  That app is not available from the Amazon App Store. So even if you were able to get it to install on the Firestick, there is no guarantee it would actually work. And it would not be supported by Norton.

As long as you stick to the included apps on the Firestick, you should only be downloading content for your TV. Not much chance of malware getting downloaded from those streaming services.

To protect the rest of your network, just be sure you have a good AV product installed on all other networked connected devices.

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

All: Norton Core solution is a good way to protect your iOT and streaming devices as well as your entire network.
