Can I use Norton Security on 3 or 4 PC's and an Android Phone?

Hello ALL:

OK, I have NIS 2014 with 154 days left. It is on 3 systems. We also use LOCAL ID Safe.

My question concerns the number of Windows PC's I can have Norton Security 2015 installed on. I do not need the BACKUP Version. It says up to 10 Devices. Does this mean I can have it installed on 4 Windows PC's plus my wife's Android? I also do not see anything about ID Safe. I assume it is still there and it will import the LOCAL safe from NIS 2014. 

I also see some say to install over NIS 2014 and others say to use the Removal tool first. This just seems vague.

If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is!

OK...more confusion. The main page says to mix anyway you want and the 2 versions are with and without backup. BUT, online stores are showing 3 versions. One is only for 1 PC. Also, the support line says that the regular version is for up to 5 devices and the one with Backup is for up to 10 devices! I do not see that there is a difference showing online for the regular and with backup versions regarding the number of devices you can have it installed on!

Thank you. Now I can wait for the Black Friday sales as I have 152 days left. Even Amazon has it with a coupon for a rebate now. Some say they will add the remaining days left on NIS 2014 and some say not. I guess it depends on the rep. I guess Standard is OK, but need to be sure the BF sales are not for the 1 PC version.

I can confirm that over installing NS over NIS does retain the local vault. Just be sure to have a vault backup, just in case.

Great...now I will wait for the rebates and sales on BF for the non Backup 5 user version.

Don't ignore the version with backup. If you find a good price you can just disable the backup feature, and you get 10 devices covered. It could be useful in the future.

Yes, sometimes there are rebates, etc, that make it only a few dollars more. I will watch out on BF!

If you install NS over NIS with 152 days remaining, say goodbye to your 152 days and start with 365 on NS. In the decades of using these products, I've never heard of anyone ever getting 500 days of coverage and personally I am not willing to loose 5 months of paid coverage. You'll still get your 365 days of NS as long as it is installed within a year. Norton Security (1-5 Users) [Product Key Card] is selling for $49.99 at staples and I'm sure even better buys will follow soon with Black Friday events. And yes, PC,MAC and your wife's Android all within the package.

We have in fact heard of massive cumulative days ......

And I'm glad to say that it does seem that chat are adding NIS days to NS new purchases:

I've no reason to believe that they would not do it for 152 days but there is only one way to find out and that is ask ......

You can only add it to an Android Phone if purchase is allowed in you country.

OK, well I can wait for BF.  Funny, I have not paid for NIS in YEARS. After all I live in America...Land of the Brave and Home of the Free (after rebate)!

I guess I CAN wait to install NS when my NIS is about to run out...but will see if CHAT will add any remaining days at that time...or I can wait to install NS over NIS.

Use to buy the Norton and the 360 for 3 users   .... would install on mine and my mothers computer ... it was more so she wouldn't have to buy one herself... now the Norton security says 5 devices  .... is that the same or do you have to share the same email address ...  is it a 1 user with 5 devices or 2 of mine and 2 for her...

You can continue to do the same as you have in he past. The Norton key will be stored in your Norton Account under your email just as it is now for your 360 key. You can share with family or friends, but you will have to do the install, or share your account details with them. (Not advised)
