Internet Security - i have Norton - do i need it if i have virgin web safe? Do i need to have F Safe?

I had Norton before joining virgin and just carried it on. Is virgin web safe enough security without Norton? Is F Safe necessary to have with web safe? What is the cost of F Safe, my Norton is up for renewal at £89 so would like to compare. Thanks.

norton is the biggest pile of bloatware there is.
my advice, remove and it never install it ever again.

if you have windows 10 the built-in virus protection is more than enough.

You could try Avast Free Antivirus with a custom install for just file shield and behaviour shield.

I removed Norton after being a 10 years + user due to it becoming bloated & always crashing, I went with Windows Defender & found my laptop running a lot smoother & faster. This along with MalwareBytes is enough.

F-Secure is free for the first year but then there’s a special discount for VM customers.

In addition to my security program Bullguard I've been using a HOSTS file on my Windows PC for many years to block all manner of unwanted internet connections. It works on other OSs like Linux and Mac OS as well. I update the file from this webpage.
