Norton Safe Web app reviews
It works well on my iMac 5/5
I have been using the Norton Safe Web app for a few weeks on my iMac and so far have not experienced any issues with it.
Keeps on wanting to update 1/5
Keeps on wanting to update. Click update. Restart Safari. App Store still wants it to update. What kind of QA process do you have Norton? This is ridiculous.
Poor Mac Support 1/5
By The Other Mac Guy
This is a warning for those considering the Norton suite on Mac. A few objective observations:
1) Hanging or crashing
2) Multiple uninstall and reinstall to keep it working
3) Continuous asking for passwords
4) Pop-ups to register even when it is registered
5) Confusing and inconsistent blocking and unblocking service / firewall protection
6) Poor UI design
7) Outdated and incomplete product documentation
As someone who rarely writes a product review, I am compelled to post my experience as a warning for other to consider. I called support tried to get my money back after struggling for 3 months with this, but it was “after 90 days.” I considered filing a complaint with my credit card company but at some point you just have to let it go and warn others.
This is on a 2018 Macbook Pro 2.2 GHz i7, 16GB RAM with MS Office, Pro Tools and Ableton Live. Nothing else installed.
Does not work well with a Mac 1/5
I have un-installed & re-installed Norton 360 on average once or twice every couple weeks. 360 also does not support the cloud back up on the Mac OS, they should offer a refund for not being able to access all the features they claim to offer. The Safe Web app keeps asking for a password that doesn’t exist. If these items aren’t fixed, I likely will not subscribe again. To other reviewers, you need not be running Catalina for this software to not work well on a Mac.
Crashes my Mac 1/5
Before Norton, my Mac never crashed. It now crashes almost daily. I have removed this software and recommend that Mac users do the same.
Very disappointing after a long history of great products. Support hasn't helped.
It keeps telling me to Update. Even though I've clicked it about 100 times and updated it already.
Incompatible with Mac OS 10.15 Catalina 1/5
By Soaring Eagle
Norton Security application blocking firewall with the Safe Web Safari extension v1.1.101 installed will block Safari and other Apple web services from access to the internet. Recommend uninstallling this app and/or Safe Web Plus then restarting Mac. Come on Symantec, you knew Catalina was coming....
If you want to screwup your computer download this garbage.
