    Have only used for a few days. So far no negative issues.
  • Like the product, but it could be better.

    My only complaint is that I conduct a lot of Skype, GotoMeeting and WebEx sessions and at times I have to turn off the VPN to get a connection. I understand that these may potential avenues of attack, but I wish the dev team would create a white list of sorts. At least for the major communications apps.

    I just installed this on both my iPad and Win 10 laptop. Ugh! Issues: 1) It gives you an alert that you’ve connected to an unsecured network, but will not automatically activate the VPN...there is no setting for that. Why? You would not get the notification if you hadn’t signed up for the service, so why is there not an option to automatically connect whenever an unsecured network is detected? 2) If you tap on that notification, it will automatically open their app. But, it still won’t activate automatically from there. It takes you to the screen that you see when you open the app for the first time which offers you to sign up for the service with a huge button with the ‘already subscribed’ link in much smaller print below that. Why isn’t THAT screen bypassed after sign-up? Tap on the subscribed link and you have to manually type in your account email and password to turn the VPN service on. Seriously?? Why?? The notification would only pop up if I had already signed up for the service, so why am I having to log in? Meanwhile, as I am having to mess with this, I am delayed in doing what I connected to the internet to do in the first place and I am vulnerable during the login process. 3) I use a Bluetooth keyboard with my iPad. I cannot use it to enter the login info. I have to go into settings, turn off Bluetooth, go back to the app, sign in via the touchscreen, go back to settings and turn Bluetooth back on. Maybe they haven’t heard the news that there’s this thing called Touch ID? 4) In Settings, there is a settings category specific to VPNs. Once I have established the Norton VPN account, that is listed as an available VPN. If you have multiple VPNs, you would select the one that you want to use, and then activate the VPN with the on-off toggle above the list. Except, yes, you guessed it, you can’t turn the Norton VPN on and off from there. You have to have the app open and do the aforementioned log in before it will work. 5) Location emulation: You can tell it which country that you want your device to display as, which is great...particularly if you are traveling abroad and you need to see websites in English. But, there is where your selection stops. I watched the open app randomly change emulated locations...New York, Miami, Seattle... I can’t choose where I want to be seen which can adversely impact my ability to properly interface with many websites that utilize your location for time-sensitive offerings, or geographical offerings. I need to be able to at least emulate a location in my time zone. In summary, getting the VPN activated when your only internet option is an unsecured network is the app’s biggest issue. Making an app easy to user and totally user-friendly is critical and Norton fell on their face with this presentation of the app. Once you’re signed up for the app, no sign-on should be necessary...period. The app does not allow device data access so security in turning on the VPN is not an issue. The location emulation is important, AND it needs to be stable...not changing locations every two minutes. Frankly, if they can’t get the basic of the app functionality going, I have concern on how well the app, or there other software, is protecting me. It’s all programming, right?

    Works as expected in iOS 11.0.2 and was easy to setup. Wish it was offered as an extension of the Suite. Careful disabling add options as some add supported apps will not work if adds are blocked as expected.
  • Nice App with a few snags

    Overall, I find this to be a reliable service from a great developer. It just works for me. That said, I find two snags. 1) My Symantec password is a long one with low recognition. I keep it password protected on my iPhone. The app won’t let me paste it and is hard to enter. I am tempted to use a simple password as a result. 2) The VPN tunnel sometimes terminates in a location that is very far and has long ping times. The result is really poor service.
  • It DID work...
