Norton Security Product Key

I have a not-yet-activated "Norton Security with Backup 10-user key that is valid for one year."   But have 1.5 years of NIS left.  Will the NS key still be valid in 1.5 years?  Or have key activation time-limits been added with NS?  if so, what are they?  ("Valid for one year" wouldn't possibly mean it has to be *activated* in less than one year from now, would it?)

To know for sure you could check with Customer Support.  We would only be guessing.

You realise that in 1 & 1/2 years the next version will be released?  Will your NS key activate v23?  Who knows, but Customer Support will have the best idea.

Re: Norton Security Product Key

Thanks, that makes sense.  But before marking as the solution I'll see if, by any chance, someone from Symantec jumps in, or maybe someone who has already asked CS a similar question.

Re: Norton Security Product Key

When you're ready you could ask Support about transferring your remaining NIS days to NSwB.  People are having differing results with this but it's worth a try.

Please let us know if you find out about the keys.

Thanks.

Hello Ardmore
The "valid for one year" was the key.  Pardon the pun.

Re: Norton Security Product Key

I received free 1 year Norton Security with Backup (10 user) for participating in the Beta. Email was from Tony Weiss, and I had the same question.

Part of my email sent to Tony was: "I wouldn't install this until later on - I assume that it doesn't have to be activated by a certain date?".

Answer received back was: "Correct; the subscription period starts from the minute you use the key.".

Re: Norton Security Product Key

Thanks bjm_ and chnman.  I marked chnman's as the solution since it included a clarification straight from Tony Weiss.  I suspected "Valid for one year" probably did refer to the subscription length, but was wondering if it could just possibly refer to how much time you have to activate the key instead.  Looks like it's indeed a reference to subscription length and that the key should be valid for activation indefinitely, assuming no surprises (not that I'm expecting any ).
