My mommy put this on my laptop and now im really mad at her.
not very useful, glitches and does things you don't want it to such as not unlocking the device when you want it to be unlocked, which resulted in my daughter missing 5 days of homework when she was sick at home. it can uninstall for updates whenever it needs to, which was a negative because there was an intense argument between my daughter and my husband over who uninstalled it, when no one had. it blocks sites that it thinks is dangerous for your child, which in theory should be good but just means there are a large number of sites your child cannot access even though they need them for school, or you think it is ok. overall, Norton family is useless and in my family lead to distrust and arguments between everyone. Would not recommend.

Mmmm, gotta love the smell of indoctrination via intentional retention of information. I wonder if they've made these things more secure? I was "hacking" into my moms to shut it down by the time I was 9 on Windows 98, so I guess it does provide a good learning opportunity for that sort of practice.
