      We appreciate your feedback about the misclassification in our parental controls filtering. Our investigation has found that for one category multiple filters were mistakenly applied instead of one. We are now correcting this. We take customer feedback seriously at Norton and look forward to enhancing the product to better meet your family’s security needs. Symantec

          Sorry to hear about these issues! Norton Core should not slow you down. If you're experiencing issues with network speed, you can check the Network Inspection status from your Norton Core mobile app by tapping on Settings > Security > Network Inspection and check if the Inspection Level is set to "Default (recommended)". Also, if you were noticing slower speeds on a speed test site result, try testing with a different speed test site like fast.com. Due to the way we handle network traffic, some speed test sites may report a slower speed than what you're actually getting, which is why we'll include a speed test within the Norton Core mobile app. If you continue to experience issues, please allow us to help you get this running properly by contacting us at http://support.norton.com/core. I'll also pass on the feedback about the need for Mesh Networking to our team to investigate and see if there's something we can do for future releases. Symantec

            I’m sorry that you’ve not had a good experience with the Norton Core or our Norton Support team. The actual speed may be higher than what is measured and shown on the Norton Core Speed Test in the Norton Core mobile app. Because of the way you have described your setup we suggest that you turn off the Norton Inspection level. To turn off network inspection launch the mobile application go to Settings > Security > Network Inspection. Test your speed again at fast.com.

            Here are some additional steps for you to try if you do not see any improvement:

            1. Turn off DPI for the duration of the test. (Settings/Security/Network Inspection)
            2. Minimize the activity on the network: Downloading/streaming content, Web browsing, video conferencing
            3. Get the best WiFI signal by getting in close proximity to the router
            4. Perform speed test on encrypted test site e.g Fast.com
