Is there a password before NF can be uninstalled?

I have a bit of a problem with Norton Family on Windows 10. I have an admin account on my son's PC and he has a standard account. The problem is that every time he wants to install a new game or something, the admin password is required, which is very frustrating.

I've searched extensively for Windows 10 solutions to this, but can't get around that at all.

Is there a way for my son to have an admin account, but to require a password to uninstall Norton Family, or for Norton Family to monitor the account as it would a standard account?

I really need to be able to solve this or I'll have to think of another way to protect him while still allowing him to install games without me having to input the password.

Hi angeljs

Yes you can configure Norton Family to monitor admin accounts. Norton Family will always ask for a password when you uninstall regardless of whether it is a an admin account or standard account.

Please try this and reach out to us if you face any issues on this.

That's no good. NF should have an unistall password before it can be removed from the PC.

It does ask for an uninstall password on the PC before it can be removed. I am not sure you read the previous post correctly.

That's strange, as I tried it on my son's admin account and it didn't ask for a password.

Did you actually have Norton Family completely installed and bound? By bound I mean did you have the policy attached to an account? If not then removing from the computer would not have any affect. Therefore would not ask for a password.
