Is www.symantec-norton.com a real Norton website ?

While doing a search for "Norton" I see that website rated as "Safe" by Norton (Green OK icon).

However, I also use WOT, which indicates that it is a scam ??

It sort of looks genuine but I didn't click any links.

Yep, I asked the same question.  Appears to be Symantec Registered Partner.  And SafeWeb reports SAFE.

Dave,

I got there yesterday after searching too.

It does say << Norton by Symantec Registered Partner >> so it is not Norton or Symantec but may be valid.

But let's see if we get a statement from Staff (names in red).

Hello floplot,

I just put 'Norton' into Google search. That website was on page 3 of the search.

BJM_ is correct; www.symantec-norton.com is a partner. You may notice that when attempting to purchase from that site, you're taken to the Norton store. Not a scam, a partner. Thanks.

@Davec33, sorry for the delay. It was brought to my attention a few weeks ago, and I've been trying to hunt down the right team to give the definitive answer.

Hello!

I have found one more site with Norton products at a discount http:// www . software4pro . com/#!norton-coupon-code/cry4

They offer Norton Security products with more than 50% discount. I wonder whether it is safe to purchase from this site?

Having Googled on software4pro, just like that, I find a lot of references that look as if they are self-generated but very little about them. Coupons are so easily forged and usually their acceptance is discretionary for the store where you try to use them.

Amazon is hard to beat for good prices -- exceptionally good at times -- and safety.

When you divide the saving by the number of devices used on, is the saving worthwhile compared with the risk of getting a bad key -- forged, partly or totally used!

I see the download version of Norton Security Deluxe 5 Device for $35.

BTW When you buy a new copy and install it it wipes out any unexpired time since it is a new copy and not a renewal of an old one. In the past Norton OnLine Support -- Norton Chat Support -- especially via the CHAT route that uses your keyboard and not the phone have been good about adding the time back in. But it is a concession so be nice!
