Description from store If you are a Norton™ Family user, you’ll need to install this extension to continue monitoring your child’s activity on Google Chrome. Norton Family helps you protect your kids so they can enjoy the Internet safely. It gives you insights into their online activities so you can start a conversation about responsible online behaviors. Changes in the latest version of Google Chrome require reinstalling this extension to be able to continue to track your kids’ activity on Chrome. Installing this chrome extension does not install Norton Family product on your windows device. Norton Family has to be installed separately and is a pre-requisite for this extension to work. This extension uses permissions that produce the following Chrome messages to perform necessary functions within the extension. “Read and change all your data on the website you visit” Shown for permissions needed to monitor child web activities and also to display Norton Family block page for websites that are not allowed as per the house rules configured by the parent. “Read and change your browsing history” Shown for permissions needed to: - Access current tab URL and to go back to the previous web page from Norton Family block page. - Examine web page navigations to monitor child web browsing activities. “Communicate with cooperating native applications” Shown for permissions needed to communicate between the extension and the Norton Family Product (native application). This extension also uses permissions that are not displayed in Chrome to perform necessary functions within the extension: “webRequest” and “webRequestBlocking” – This is needed to identify top level and embedded URL's and also add additional headers which will be used by the Norton Family Product (native application). By using this add-on, you are subject to the product terms specified here: Terms and Conditions: https://family.norton.com/web/terms_conditions.jsp Privacy Policy: https://www.symantec.com/privacy

  • (2019-12-24) PresidentPewPewz: Norton Family can stop your kid from using the computer as much but it does invade your child's privacy very much. My child feels like they can't trust me since they think I don't trust them. Also some of the most kid-friendly apps or websites are blocked.
  • (2019-12-11) Freddy Fazbear: I hate this thing. Created by moms who hate on Eminem. Do not get
  • (2019-09-13) Jermaine Jackson: Garbage! And the responses from "Norton Browser Extensions by Symantec" in these reviews are garbage too. On a windows pc all a child has to do is remove the extension and they are free to surf whatever they wish. The extension will reinstall itself AFTER the child has closed the web browser and then opens again....but once again they'll delete the extension and browse freely. The Norton Family app is great on my android devices but this Chrome extension is pure GARBAGE!

  • (2019-06-19) Adam Jolley: Useless. All your kid has to do is remove this and go on incognito and then they can search anything they want.

  • (2018-10-30) Thomas Engels: Norton Family is a good attempt at making the best-in class kids screen time software, but it needs a lot of work before it can call itself that. I'd like to let my daughter make calls (to friends) and listen to music when her screen time is over. I also would like an easy option to add a limited amount of time after time is up. And the monitoring web site needs an overhaul to make it much more easy to use. It's cluttered and it takes way too many clicks to do the most important things.
  • (2018-10-19) Shaptai Segal: Great protection all around!

  • (2018-03-18) Ryan Hunziker: Options tab is grayed out and will not let me add any children or adjust any settings, which makes this extension completely useless.

  • (2019-12-20, v: Erik Hilde: Causes Chrome to freeze upon launch - sends alert that plugin was disabled
    I found the BHO plugin is somehow causing Chrome to freeze upon launch more than 50% of the time. The top bar will simply say "...loading." I need to close and relaunch several times for Chrome to finally open, and at some point an alert is sent to the "parent" that the plugin was disabled. Most of the time the plugin actually works, but the rest it doesn't - it's loaded but says "can't read site's data." I found the plugin works correctly on IE11, although it sometimes loads slowly, and I'm prompted to disable it. What's up?!

    It works great but it is just as easy to turn off and/or remove. Any way to lock extension from all of us, including myself? I own Premium so why do I still need this extension? Also can U tell me what "Allow access to file URLs" does?

When the Web server (while acting as a gateway or proxy) contacted the upstream content server, it received an invalid response from the content server.
