Which Norton product Does a little old lady need for protection

Hi....I'm a 'little old lady' (72.8 years old) whose Norton product is up for renewal soon.  The ONLY internet device I have is an Acer all-in-one desktop with Windows 10 (I think)...Just got my renewal notice online and it shows a cost of $99.99 Can....and in checking the renewal price list, that seems to cover the "Norton 360 Deluxe", for up to FIVE (5) devices, and 50 GB of Storage size.

I only have One (1) device and don't store much....my system shows it's almost 'empty' in terms of usage.

I'm wondering if the "Norton AntiVirus Plus"  for One (1) device and 2 GB of stoage size at $59.99 Can. would suffice and cover me safely from virus attacks.  I mainly use the email function, and read several papers online, and not much else.  I'm not on Facebook, Twitter, etc., and I don't use any 'apps' since I have NO mobile devices...no cellphone, no iPad, etc......so there should be little exposure....but I do my banking online...pay bills, access my two banks' accounts, credit card, etc.

What advice can you offer re my renewal level.  Thank you.   MT

Hello GeorgieMT. Indeed you are spot on with that selection. Norton Antivirus Plus for 1 device, 1 year with 2gb storage is $39.99 now at this link.

Edited: I cannot get the Canadian site to open so that price is from the US site.

Cheers

Thanks for your reply.  I did get the Canadian site to open and it offers the same $39.99 but I think it's for 'new' subscribers?  I might 'chat' or speak with a Norton rep to see what's available for Canadians on renewals.

I want to have good virus protection, and don't want to save money, but then find there are issues with my computer.  So far, Norton has been VERY good at keeping my computer virus-free.  

Am I skimping on protection if I go down to the AntiVirus Plus, rather than have the Norton 360 Standard or Deluxe.  That's my worry.  Little old ladies worry a lot.  mt

Norton Antivirus Plus would cover your needs most adequately. Anything more would just be overkill for your needs in my opinion. The Canadian site did open for me too later on. Same prices as you said which is win win both in the US and Canada.

Norton Security Standard  You can grab the license for $29.99 for the first year, although the normal price per year $69.99. You can read expert review and choose what's the different and decide what u needs https://geeksadvice.com/norton-security-review/

Hi...to complete the story.  I just did a live chat with Norton Support, and I was offered the Norton AntiVirus Plus at $39.99; and also the Norton Security Standard (also called Norton 360 Standard) for $49.99.  It apparently also has VPN, which I'm told is additional privacy protection.  Whatever.  Thought I'd spend the extra $10 and perhaps not worry as much.  I'm old and worrying is a standard feature with this old lady.  Thank you so much for your help.  mt
