The primary changes in NIS/N360/NSS 188.8.131.52 are updates to Identity Safe, the Norton Toolbar, and compatibility of these components with the Google Chrome browser.
As you may know, Google has changed their policy regarding toolbars, which now requires that customers obtain all toolbars from the Google Chrome Web store. This affects Norton Products, as the Norton Toolbar can no longer be installed locally, but must be obtained from the Google Chrome Web store as well. This update has been released to enable our customers running 20.4 versions of Norton Internet Security, Norton 360 & Comcast Norton Security Suite to use the Norton Identity Safe and Norton Toolbar features on the latest version of Google Chrome.
