Symantec has announced public betas for Norton Security 2016 and Norton Security with Backup 2016. This isn’t a major update, as the company admits, saying: “None of the changes we’ve made will be directly visible to you.” There are just a few under-the-hood changes to improve performance, while the package is now fully Windows 10-ready.
If you want to test the releases anyway, we’d recommend uninstalling any existing Norton packages first (even a stand-alone copy of Identity Safe didn’t work properly after we installed the beta).
You’ll also need to register before the beta can be downloaded. This includes providing a working email address where you’ll receive your product key.
The signup process gets you a 14-day licence which can be extended once more, for another 14 days, if required.
