    Norton Security Premium 5 Devices 1 year Email Key $36 - https://www.saveonit.com.au/product/norton-security-premium-...

    360 unnecessary IMO.
    And that was my backup, paid less on eBay.

    Likely better VPN's around too, personally use Nord myself.

    • I purchased from saveonit twice now. Very happy. Was sceptical first due to the low price but all good.

      Even had to chat with Norton in relation to an installation issue, had to give them the serial number but all good.

    I'd recommend just using Bitwarden (Completely free password manager), Windows Defender (which has come a long way) and your VPN of choice instead.

      I'm always a bit skeptical when it comes to free software … even more so if it is a password manager

      • I'd use an OSS password manager if it was a free one, or a free one with an upsell tier possibly.

      • +2

        bitwarden is open source and highly recommended by those in the relevant fields you're also free to use it outside of their cloud server

        You can Host it yourself in that case, and there is a lot of information about them online and on reddit, etc.

      why anyone would use password manager i never understand, can you enlighten me?

      • +4

        A website I used online got hacked. I was stupid enough to use the same password on many sites (I use a different passwords for dodgy forums and sites, but still.) I had sign ins to almost 10 of my accounts afterwards. Now I have auto generated, randomised passwords for every site which is much more secure, and they're autofilled for me on all of my devices.

        Long complicated passwords that you don't need to memorise but available to access at any moment

          as much as you trust facebook would keep your personal information secured

          • +3

            @Mugu: I don't use Facebook and yeah it is something I can trust because the information is stored on my own secure server.

            I don't know why you ask questions when you reply with snarky shit.

        in theory you should have a different password for each login, if you have a look at https://haveibeenpwned.com/ you'll be able to see if your past logins have been compromised by hackers / insecure websites. If you use the same or similar password across multiple websites then you are effectively compromised across all of them, because they'll just throw your email and password into a bunch of popular websites and find out more information. It's even worse if your email password is the same, because then they can go through and change your passwords, effectively locking you out of everything including your email.
        So the safest and most annoying way to do things is have different passwords for everything, but now you have at least a dozen passwords, so how do you keep track of them? By using a password manager to track them for you.
        I don't actually use one, I just have like 4 different passwords for different levels of security, ie my banking password is just my banking password, my social media password is just for social media etc. Firefox has a built in password manager which is quite good as well.

        • the solution to this is very simple, just a formula to generate passwords, different password for each login, easy, free, secured.

          • +2

            @Mugu: The problem is, your passwords are then formulaic. You want to hope none of your passwords are exposed, or you're risk of the formula being exposed. Also, people aren't machines, and may not be able to think in such a way. Also, such a formula seems like it might be a pain. There's a reason people use password managers. They're at least safer than using a forumla because one password doesn't relate to the next.

      • How else do you store your umpteen passwords for different sites?

        I hope you don't use the same password for each. That is incredibly unsafe.

        Password managers encrypt your various passwords with your key (that requires credentials unlock), storing encrypted data only. This means you remember one good password, instead of many. With decent encryption and an uncommon password, it's quite secure.

        Google for example does this, just as Bitwarden does. Bitwarden even allows you to store your encrypted passwords yourself too.

        • who owns bitwarden please?

          • @petry: Effectively, since Bitwarden is open source, nobody owns it, and that's the point.

            Security through open-source software is profoundly more secure than security through obscurity that you'll find with the likes of Norton. When the source code is open and shared, you have the benefit of countless other individuals who vett the software. Where with closed source solutions like Norton, it isn't open to the same scrutiny. It's therefore possible that Nortons version has bugs or vulnerabilities that could be used to steal your information and passwords. Without the source being open, we don't know!

        You use a password manager, especially one with 2fa because there is malware out there that can download your browser passwords. Emotet malware does this as well as collect all your outlook contacts, and ransomeware the PC. I've had companies call up saying all their customers are receiving malicious emails impersonating them, and because the emails are coming from a domain that is out of their control, there is nothing they can do to stop the malicious emails going out ruining their (victims) reputation. Criminals also go and accessed all the sites you visit where you have saved password, lock you out and then do malicious things.

        I recently helped out a client because she didn't have her gmail password after recently changing it. I went into the browser cache to retrieve it. I showed her how easy it was to get it, and recommended her to move across into a proper password manager.

        If you need more convincing after this, good luck with the cyber world ahead of you.

          Your client looks like someone who should not be using computer at all, as the password managers won’t be able help her when someone from Microsoft called her to help fix her computer.

      The code "hngift1219" appears as default, which then says it's not active.

      • The Claim page was fixed today, and I was asked to try again. It worked, promotion code no longer required, just the product key.

    • Do you have a link for that offer? I can't find it on HN webpage.

    Nortons VPN is pretty useless doesn't work with torrents or even region switching with netflix etc!

    • Correct. I thought it was because of the commercial software heading into grey area territory and they didn't want to get involved in that, but then F-Secure's Freedome allows me to do torrenting (on specific country end points mind you) and Netflix regions, and they're a commercial anti-virus vendor also, so that holds no water.

      Yes, a crippled VPN. Buyer beware.
