But the first benefit that you get is of eradicating harmful viruses from your device. The Norton product indicates the availability of the threats through different colors in its status bar or notification area of the main window of Norton. There are three different colors that are there to serve this purpose.

The three given colors let you understand if your device is secure, or you need to take actions to make it free of attacks. The details of each color tile are given below so that you can take corresponding actions to ultimately protect your device.
- The 'Green' color simply means that your device is protected and you do not need to take any action to make it threat-proof.
