ISP-provided security

Hi all,

I've just upgraded to fibre and as part of the package received a message from the provider, Talktalk, suggesting I implement "Supersafe Boost", "... protecting ... from online viruses, fraud and more ".    Would this cause conflicts with N360?

Sorry if it's stupid question, but better safe than sorry.

Thanks,

Ian

Thanks bjm,

It looks like a direct replacement.  Is there anything on N360 (other than ID Safe, which I'm not using), that I'd regret losing if I swapped?

Thanks,

Ian

Before setup SuperSafe.  Uninstall Norton, run NRT

Thanks bjm,

One thing I'd surely miss if I stopped using N360 is the support from this site.  Something to think about before I decide.

Thanks again,

You would also lose the backup feature of 360, if you are using that.

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

Thanks Peter,

I don't use Norton Backup, as it happens.  All my data, desktop, FF bookmarks, FF profile, etc go to a separate hard drive in the box, then I back everything up again, including that drive, to an external drive. I have the usual system disks for the ultimate problem.  I think that, for now, I'll check it out on the PC and leave N360 on the PC and tablet.

Thanks again,

Ian
