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.

Risk impact

Norton Family requires a lot of risky permissions and is not safe to use. Avoid installing this add-on unless you absolutely trust this publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Norton Family is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
