We're happy to announce that you now have an additional option for how you are notified about updates to the content you're watching on Connect. You can now enter an alternate email address for Connect to send your notifications. This can be particularly helpful if you do not want to notifications sent to the same email address that exists on your Symantec account.

To set your alternate email address follow these easy steps:

1. Log in to Connect and access your account from the top right navigation bar.

2. Click on "Edit Account."

We are introducing a new configuration on Symantec Connect that will help you see information in whichever language you are most comfortable seeing.

In the past, Symantec Connect has ignored any preferences that you have set in your browser and has loaded the English version of Connect (by default) or has remembered the language interface that you switch to while using Connect. This configuration change will enable Connect to identify preferences that you have set in your web browser and serve you the appropriate language interface automatically. If you prefer to have Connect appear in English (or any other language available), you simply need to choose that language from the language switcher--and Connect will remember your preference.
