Seeking to limit website contact with its desktop app
My first post here: I am seeking to sever ties of software, installed on my desktop, to its website. I have been a user of iS@#$@#r for a few years, but am now seeking to limit interaction with the website - particularly its social media aspects. I still have a credit balance, to purchase daily-offered shows - and that may take a month, or months, to reduce. When it does - the software can be used without internet access (tested) - but, hopefully, without any website interaction. The more aggressive members are having a deleterious affect on my fragile health and my doctor has proved this correlation with medical readings over months. So, when my credits are exhausted at the site, I expect to only `link' with the site, every three months for an hour or two - but software usage is hoped to vary with those limitations. Without actually turning off the modem - or otherwise going offline (cutting off other aspects, including Norton updates) - the moment the software is started, it makes contact with the website servers. I am no technical wiz, so this question may be naïve. Can anyone, please, tell me if my Norton 360 has this capacity, or, if there is further software needed? Thank you.
