I don't know if this affects us or others as well. We've tried it on our home network as well as others (coffee shops, etc.) Every time we activate Secure VPN from the Norton Feature Setup our download speed drops from (using today as an example) 268Mbps to 0.3Mbps. The numbers vary, of course, but with secure VPN enabled it never gets about 5-6Mbps. This number comes from https://www.speedtest.net/ although the experience of waiting and waiting for web pages to load leaves no doubt. By disabling the Norton Secure VPN the connection speed returns to normal.
Having a VPN is handy, especially with an insecure wifi connection, but disabling the internet connection likely isn't the answer.
