Does Norton Security license has an expiry date?

No, I am not talking about the Norton Security license that I have used on my computer which has a 365-days expiry.

I am talking about the retail box that I buy at retail stores. If I buy three retail Norton Security box (5-device) now, can I used the licenses from the three retail Norton Security box for the next 3 years, ie. first box for 2016, second box for 2017, third box for 2018?

Is the above ok or must I use all three boxes within 2016?

hi Pentel

You can use the keys purchased as you suggest over the next three years they will not expire, the time will not start to count down until they are entered.

Many users have taken the opportunity to purchase a number of keys at an advantageous price and use them over a number of years.

Hi Michael - Thank you for your answer! There is a sale now and I will buy a few boxes to take advantage of the discounted price. Have a wonderful day!

You also have another option. You can contact Norton Support and ask them to add the additional keys to your current active subscription. That way you do not have to remember where you stored your product keys for safe keeping. I think there is a limit to the number of keys you can add this way, but Support will be able to tell you this.

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

Testing,

I've just created another thread and it is not showing up.

Maybe I need to create another account?

Sometimes threads need to be validated by a moderator depending on the content. Sometimes if you include a link or an image, you may have to wait a little while to see your post.

Thanks, Peter.

I have sent a pm to Tony, the administrator about this issue.

This happened previously when I posted this about "expiry date" thread. I asked and was told my account is not under moderation, I'm supposed to see thread immediately when I click Save/Submit.

Today when I posted another thread on a different issue, I'm not seeing the thread. Maybe I'm still under moderation but this is weird because I was on the "old" forum and didn't have this issue.

I hope the moderators can fix this and put an end to this issue.

Hello Pentel

This Forum does have a delay when you post a new thread. It even happens with us (Gurus). It doesn't have to do with moderation since Gurus don't have to go thru Moderation as far as I know. Maybe it's just Image moderation which we don't have to go thru. In any case there is a delay of getting new threads posted even with no images. This may take longer on weekends. We have been complaining about this as long as we have been on this platform.

Thanks.

Don't go overboard however -- none of us can say how long it might be before Norton Marketing changes policy and limits how long those unused licenses remain valid. 

We know they've messed around with renewals for people who travel a lot and find they need to renew when abroad. Often referred to as the Law of Unintended Consequences!
