Safe use of your PC
The online world is becoming more and more dangerous today. This is not surprising, because cybercrime is gold business† Not only by ignorant persons in phishing emails, but also by stealing data and then reselling it to other parties. Though chats in games cybercriminals are trying to get along these days.
It is therefore important to keep your data as secure as possible. Norton 360 for Gamers is a great tool for that because the service offers multiple layers of advanced security to protect you from phishing† In addition, the software monitors whether your PC communicates with other computers and blocks access when an unauthorized source attempts to obtain data.
If a party eventually manages to grab your data, you’ll quickly figure it out with Norton 360 for Gamers. The service keeps an eye on the Dark Web. Information appears with your personal information, including you gamer tag or usernames in games, Norton notifies you immediately. That way, you can prevent unpleasant characters from speeding up your accounts.
Infinite access with a VPN
Another way to keep your data is to use a VPN. This way, your PC connects to a remote server, which then connects to the rest of the Internet for you. This way, your computer is protected and your IP address and location cannot be tracked by third parties.
So you can surf the internet safely, but it also offers other benefits. For example, if you connect to a server in the UK, other services will also think you are in that country. As a result, you can access all the content in the country with streaming services, such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. So if you want to enjoy even more movies and series with streaming services, you can easily do so thanks to Norton 360 for Gamers.
This applies not only to streaming services but also websites. For example, you will probably come across a video on YouTube that cannot be seen in the Netherlands because of the rights that apply to the video. By turning on VPN in another country, you can watch that video without any problems.
Optimally play your games
Norton 360 for Gamers is not only named because it will ensure that your gaming accounts remain in their possession, but also for another reason. With the service you also get access to the so-called Game Optimizer.
What this software does is allocate your processor’s resources to a game you’re playing. That way, you can get the most images per second from your games and make sure that your fps is not much lower due to a program running in the background, for example.
Game Optimizer works especially well for processor-heavy titles. Think of MMOs, but also games with big open worlds that we see more and more. With the software, for example, in Red Dead Redemption 2, you can achieve a higher frame rate at the touch of a button.
Save your files without any worries
Where all important papers and documents used to be stored in physical folders, most people today simply store their files digitally. And it makes sense, because if you need to send data, for example, we do it via e-mail and not by fax.
There is only a danger that you could lose your data in one fell swoop if your PC or laptop dies. Therefore, saving your most valuable files to another disk is definitely not a bad idea. If you want to make sure you never lose your files, you can use 50 GB Cloud Backup from Norton 360 for gamers. That way, you never have to worry about your PC suddenly crashing and the screen going black.
Never forget your passwords again
With all the services that can be found online today, you also need to create a new account pretty much every day. However, to keep your data safe, it is not wise to use the same login information for all sites and programs. If your data is stolen once, all your accounts are suddenly in danger.
But on the other hand, it is not easy to remember all your passwords, let alone when you need to put more special characters, numbers and capital letters in your password. Fortunately, Norton 360 for Gamers allows you to securely store your passwords instead of typing them on Post-Its and pasting them onto your screen. With Password Manager, you can keep your complex passwords secure, including other sensitive information, such as your credit card information or social security number.
