Visa Now Offers NortonLifeLock Protection
Visa is providing a new identity theft protection benefit for eligible credit cardholders. ID Navigator Powered by NortonLifeLock is now available to consumers with Visa Infinite, Visa Signature or Visa Traditional credit cards. Accountholders will also have access to special offers on more robust identity theft offerings that include restoration features such as the LifeLock Million Dollar Protection™ Package.

COVID-19 Changing How Americans Use Credit Cards
The coronavirus pandemic has changed how Americans use their credit cards dramatically. Because of the pandemic, card issuers are seeking to provide more everyday value for consumers – including more robust identity theft protections. Visa’s offering of NortonLifeLock represents a step in this direction, according to Brian Cole, head of product, North America, for Visa.
“The past year has brought tremendous change in the way people are using their Visa credit cards and associated benefits,” he said in a statement. “Our new benefits with NortonLifeLock address some of the most requested benefits among our U.S. accountholders, and will help bring value to Visa accountholders every day, from anywhere they may be.”
Visa is the world’s largest payment network. Over 335 million credit cards, debit cards, and prepaid cards are in circulation bearing the Visa brand name. This is over 100 million more than its closest rival, Mastercard.
