EarthLink Protect+

It's the best of both worlds with anti-virus software, identity theft prevention, and a million-dollar protection package.

Why choose EarthLink x Norton security packages?

As more of our lives integrate online – from learning to working to telehealth and taxes – so do those who threaten our privacy, safety, and peace of mind. In the age of data breaches, phishing, spyware, and ransomware, it’s essential to keep you and your loved ones out of harm’s way.

But knowing what you need to protect yourself can be overwhelming.

What’s a virtual private network (VPN) and do you really need one? Can hackers get into your wireless network with just your IP address? How can you keep your devices connected to a secure network? Is my personal information on the dark web?

We take the guesswork out of the equation, so you can ease your anxiety and get back to doing what you love on the internet. Let EarthLink serve as your one-stop-shop for all your cyber safety needs.
