Do you want to transfer your Norton service from one device to another? If yes, then it is not that easy to do as it appears. Some people think by uninstalling the Norton from your one device and then installing it in another device; after that, enter the activation key. If you think after this process your Norton service will work in the new device, then you’re mistaken. Because the activation key that was entered in your one device first needs to be removed from it and then only you can install the Norton software on your new device. If you don’t know how to remove the activation key, then you can call Norton customer support to seek help from the certified experts.
