Norton WiFi Privacy - The answer to many questions
I've seen many questions and comments about Norton WiFi Privacy not starting, disappearing, not working properly, etc on various platforms. And lots of failed suggestions to make it work. I too suffered from this problem and decided to do some debugging.
I may have the solution to many of your (Norton WiFi Privacy) problems. And it's simple if not ideal.
Before logging into Norton WiFi Privacy, you need to log on to your Norton Account and turn on Automatic Renewal. And that's it.
Once Automatic Renewal is turned on, you should be able to go to each of your Norton WiFi Privacy installations and log on.
After logging on to all your Norton WiFi Privacy installations, you can turn Automatic Renewal back off. BUT, if any of your Norton WiFi sessions log out for any reason, it's back to Automatic renewal before logging back in again.
So a bug in the app? Looks to me as if the developer is inadvertantly checking the status of "Automatic Renewal" instead of the status of "Annual Subscription".
Hope this helps.
