VPN

I'm about to renew, possibly, but would like to know about the VPN that's included. 

How does it work?

Re: VPN

Thank you for your reply.

I'm aware of VPNs and how they work. I was wondering how it works with NIS and how would I go about using it. Or, is it automatic? I.E., anytime I go online I would be automatically using the VPN? Or, would I have to use a link?

Any insight there would be appreciated.

Re: VPN

Thank you very much for the links. The 2nd one is an eye-opener.

Gonna have to take some time to make a decision on renewing, but not looking good right now. If I do, it certainly won't be the VPN option.

Again, thank you.

If you are still using Norton Internet Security, NIS, or Norton Security, NS, products, you can purchase/install the standalone version of Norton Secure VPN. That can be set up to start up with Windows, so you are protected at all times.

If you upgrade to the new 360 product line, there is a VPN feature included with your subscription as part of the product. That version, however, does not start up with Windows at this time. You have to manually start the feature each time you log in. Move control is being considered for a future version of this feature.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: VPN

Thanks peterweb for the followups.

At this point, I still haven't decided if I'm going to renew. Will decide in the next few days. If I go with the new 360/VPN version, I doubt I'll use the VPN. Probably will go with something better.
