Downloading Norton product to second machine


I realise this must be obvious, but I want my wife to be able to use one of my Norton Security Premium licences on her tablet.

She has a different Norton account from me, so would not be using my login to access the download.

Would she be able to do it via the Product Key?

And if so, how would she do that?

Thank you.



Re: Downloading Norton product to second machine


Go to Help on the top right of your NS Premium. On the right side you will see Add a Device and follow the instructions from there. Please have her run Live Update and restart as necessary. The latest version is

Another way you can do it is to have her use this link

www.norton.com/latestnsbu    For Activation she can enter  you key and your Norton Account. Please run Live Update until there are no more updates. Please restart as necessary. Her year will start when yours started.

Hope this helps


Thanks Dave

She can activate it with your key but the product will be under your Norton account, there is no way to change that since the key was first activated to your Norton account.

She can however use "her" identity safe vault because the Norton account used for the key does not have to be the same account used for identity safe.

@PompeyNev: This page contains detailed instructions about how to install your Norton product on a different device.

Note that the said build will ship Shopping Guarantee to your Google Chrome, and you can only disable that item at the time of commenting.

For more info, you may Chat with Norton Support.

Please post back if this or any other comment solves your problem. TIA:)

Re: Downloading Norton product to second machine

For the Tablet install, you will be installing Norton Mobile Security, NMS,  from the Google Play Store. Log into your Norton Account at   https://manage.norton.com  and click on Services tab, and find your current Norton Security Premium subscription. Click on the Download button and follow the directions to install on another device. Send the email to your wife's email that she can open on the tablet. Follow the directions in the email to install on the tablet.

As noted, this gets installed under your Norton Account. You may have to sign into your account from the NMS app to activate the full features.

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