    It’s very simple to use and straight forward. But also the updates aren’t so frequent unfortunately.
  • Fantastic!

    I bought the Norton Core in Jan 2018 and I have been so happy with it! It was super easy to set up and has operated great for over a month now. I’d read reviews that concerned me ahead of the purchase but I didn’t experience any bad performance at all. The only thing I would advise is that buyers research ahead of time what type of modem they have and figure out how to configure it in “bridge mode” as that is required. For me, I have DirecTV with a gateway modem and I had to research a bit to figure out how to configure it, as my specific modem didn’t allow bridge mode. But after a quick google search I found posts explaining how it did allow DMZ+ configuration (which is similar) and showed me how to turn off the wireless on my gateway modem, which worked perfectly. Overall, very satisfied with the Norton Core!

    I have the Cujo, it okay. Tried the Bitdefender Box 2, like the bridge mode compared to the Cujo. Should have kept testing the Core. Oh well! The app needs some TLC, but it was getting there.
  • Worst product ever.

    After months with this failed, broken device dropping connection randomly 5-6 times a day, it finally broke after a firmware update and wouldn’t pass internet anymore. Beware Symantec employees posting fake reviews! This is a flawed product and has hardware issues. Filed a BBB complaint. Avoid this product!
  • What a joke

    Yea, take the router and throw it in the thrash and uninstall the app. No quality assurance, no customer service, this product is designed for one thing only - to lock you into a monthly subscription. Why do I need a Norton account to use this product? So I can have Symantec track my entire online browsing history and install their junk software on all my devices. Please, give me a break.
  • What a waste!

    For $250+ you’d expect a better product. Not only is the functionality of the router restricted to what’s available in the app, but the router itself has problems. Many of those problems have already been outline in all of the other negative reviews, but when you can’t even configure the right time zone because of an “error” that when you know you’ve wasted money.
  • Request: No to All Alerts

    In the app it shows alert notifications for blocked sites which is handy, but it seems there is a cap of number of entries. My latest entries showed from 2 weeks ago, I had 150+ but nothing showed recent. After clearing some old alerts, by manually selecting NO new alerts finally started appearing. There needs to be a way to select NO for all blocking notifications or clear the list, or remove the soft cap.
  • Ok

    Difficult to get connected, but then easy to use. Weird that it calls Friday a school night but not Sunday on parental controls. It should let you set daily access instead of just weekday or weekend in parental controls.
  • The app is not the issue!

    The hardware or firmware or both is flawed.
  • Notification buttons

    The biggest problem I have is with the time it takes to show the status of the toggle bottoms. It takes me >30 seconds to show the status of the settings-> mobile apps-> notifications.
