“When I’m gaming, the last thing I want to think about is security,” said Katharine “KatContii” Conti, gaming influencer.
“With Game Optimizer, not only is my information safe, but my game play is seamless. It was created by gamers for gamers and gives me peace of mind without sacrificing performance.”
The addition of Game Optimizer marks a revolutionary shift for PC gamers, reducing performance interruptions while still maintaining security, resulting in an immersive and smoother gaming experience.
By freeing power-hungry programs to a single CPU core, Game Optimizer helps ensure all available computing power is allocated to the game for better performance. As an added benefit, Norton 360 for Gamers also offers optimized notifications, permanently silencing non-essential messages.
Norton 360 for Gamers customers will have access to Norton™ Crypto when it launches in the coming weeks. Currently available as part of NortonLifeLock’s early adopter program, Norton Crypto enables customers to safely and easily mine cryptocurrency while their devices are idle through its trusted Norton™ 360 platform.
“We want gamers to use NortonLifeLock Game Optimizer so they can stay focused on the challenges of their game, not the distraction and risk of cyber threats. We also want to help people put their PC’s idle time to good use with Norton Crypto providing an easy and safe way to mine cryptocurrencies.”
