Norton by Symantec

Many of your best life experiences will only happen once, or they’ll pass before you can even blink your eyes. Your baby will only have one first Christmas. Your tiny 3-pound puppy will grow to be triple his current weight. Beloved family members will eventually pass on. Time certainly flies by much more quickly than you want it to, but if you’re lucky, you can hold onto these memories through photos.

There are different ways to ensure that these photos, videos, and other files stay safe. You could backup your laptop or desktop on a weekly basis, but if you lose or break them, your files are gone forever. There are also free cloud programs out there, but as you’ve seen from the hundreds of celebrity hacks that have happened this year, privacy can be compromised very quickly.

The easiest (and safest) solution I’ve found is Norton Security with Backup. It comes with the antivirus software that I’ve learned to know and trust (my family has been using Norton for years) and 25 GB worth of secure online storage. You can protect up to 10 devices for one year, so it’s great for any modern family that’s equipped with multiple desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. If you get a new device, you can remove protection from the old one and transfer it easily. If your current one crashes, you can rest assured that you’ve backed it up and stored it in a safe place.

If you need more storage, you can purchase on top of the 25 GB you’re allotted. However, 25 GB is likely way more than you need. To get a better idea, here’s what you can hold with 25 GB of data:

• 6,000 songs
• 7,000 photos
• 100 hours of video
• 125,000 Word Documents
• 25,000 PowerPoint Presentations
• 200,000 spreadsheets

In addition to the backup feature, you can rely on Norton’s top-of-the-line malware protection, along with the ability to locate lost or stolen devices. Unlike free software, Norton comes with a 100% guarantee that your devices will be safe, or your money back.
