How do I install Norton Security on a Windows computer or laptop?

You've bought Norton Security to protect your PC or laptop against viruses, spyware, and other threats. In order to provide the computer with Norton security as soon as possible, I'll explain the installation for PC or laptop step by step on this page.

What do you need?

  • Norton product key, which you can find on the packaging or in your email
  • Norton account information, unless you don't have an account yet

  • Next, log in using the account you've just created on the login screen, like in step 1a.

Step 2: enter product code

Enter Norton product key code
  • If you have a Norton product card, you'll find the 25-character code on the card.
