Norton Core Outside the US?

Hi Guys,

Is it possible to activate/use Core outside of the US via US VPN tunnel or anything like that - or will it just not work? I'm being told by Norton Support that the device itself is Geolocked.

However, being a systems engineer - I figured there must be a way around this. :).

Can anyone here confirm whether this is doable and if the Core can be used outside of the US at this time?

Hello mripguru At present Core can be used ONLY in the USA, Its firmware does indeed Geolock the Core.

Cheers

Thanks. I thought there might be a way to trick the device. Oh well.

Hopefully Core will be offered outside the US sooner than later. There are tons of people here on the forums that are from Canada which is our neighbor as is Mexico who cannot use. Would be awesome for Norton's business bottom line. Check here often for announcements. https://community.norton.com/en & https://community.norton.com/en/forums/welcome-norton-core-board

I wonder why they chose to do it this way -- rather than doing a worldwide launch. It's not like there's anything really special about what they're doing here that needs to be regionalized.

Without knowing inside information I would say legal issues are the biggest factor.

Legal issues, plus there is only one language version to troubleshoot on the initial launch.

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