Norton 360 v22.17.3.50
Norton 360 is security suite with a VPN, cloud backup and a password manager

For years Norton has been synonymous with security and Norton 360 is a brand new comprehensive "do it all" suite that continues its fine tradition of offering protection for all your devices (PC, Mac, iOS or Android).

Once installed Norton 360 presents you with a home screen where you can control and launch the included applications. 

First up is Norton Security which offers strong anti-malware protection that monitors files and programs not just for known threats but for suspicious behaviour too, helping block malware before it can gain a foothold on your system. You also get a firewall, silently blocking attacks from both outside and inside your PC. Web Safety components check the links you click to make sure they’re safe to visit, while downloaded files are screened and checked for both security and reliability. In addition, you get comprehensive tools to keep your PC maintained with file cleanup, disk optimisation and a startup manager.

Norton 360 now bundles Secure VPN which used to be a paid component. A VPN is essential for browsing the web from a mobile device particularly on an unsecure wifi network. You can use your VPN to locate yourself in another country, which is good for watching TV whilst abroad or simply to create a secure tunnel to the internet to stop hackers finding your real location and IP address.

Dark Web Monitoring is now included and supported by Norton LifeLock. The Monitoring tool will keep one eye on your information, such as email address and/or password, then check to see if this has been compromised online. If it has, it will warn you and you can quickly change your password(s).

Cloud Backup is included. The amount of storage differs depending on your Norton plan (Standard users receive 10GB, Deluxe 50GB, Premium 75GB), but as this store is designed for your essential files, in case your system is ever either compromised or you suffer from a Ransomware attack. You can quickly get your data back on to your devices from your Cloud Backup.

Norton 360 now includes a multi-device Password Manager. This enables you to securely store your login data and passwords through Norton and access them from any device (where you have Norton installed). A plugin for Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Opera gives you quick access direct from your browser.

Parental Controls is the last module supplied by Norton 360. Simply create your family network (children up to 17 years of age), then decide their restriction level (based on their age), choose their device and install Norton 360 on their device. You will then have access to their internet habits, browsing times/restrictions and monitor their behaviour online.

Please note, Norton 360 replaces the previous Norton Security and Norton Security with Backup, but Norton 360 is a seriously powerful suite of security tools giving you what you had before with Norton Security, but adds the Secure VPN, a Password Manager, Cloud Backup and more. Recommended!

What's new in v22.17.3.50?

- Automatic Renewal (AR) opt-in offer will be available on Norton main UI for customers who are not enrolled in AR. The banner on main UI will be shown only if subscription remaining days is more than 60 days. The offer is not available in China, Japan, Korea and France. 
- Norton Security and Norton Security with Backup 'Internet Security' pillar health in Main UI, Task Bar icon and System tray icon will show Red, if Safe Web extension is not installed in Default browser. This will be visible in English builds only.
- Minor bug fixes
- Performance enhancements

Verdict:

We're impressed with 360. Norton Security users gain additional tools such as a VPN, dark web monitoring, cloud backup and much more.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.71

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
