Did you miss the news when Symantec created the free beta edition of Norton Identity Safe and made it available publicly to millions of Internet users? This web-based version allows users to store passwords and log-ins very securely and protect various online accounts in the cloud service with an assigned master password that ensures access to all accounts from different gadgets or devices that run on Google Android.  What's best about it is that you do not need to remember or scribble it in order to retrieve your passwords in case you lost or forgot it. 


how to use Norton Identity Safe on a personal computer


Here's how to use Norton Identity Safe on a personal computer: 

The process begins with downloading the Norton Identity Safe software from Symantec.  This feature is actually available in most Norton security products including Norton 360. After your download and install, log in using your Norton Account. If you don’t have it yet, simply encode your email address on the space provided to create one.


You will also need to nominate a password then press the sign-up button. You will be required to choose a different password for your personal online vault in order to access all your personal data or information.


Once done, Norton will ask your permission to import all your existing passwords and log-ins using Internet Explorer. If you are a Chrome or Firefox user instead, you will be required to install a toolbar browser to save passwords and log-ins. 


Next, enter your new passwords and log-in information then select the Setting options in the toolbar then choose Edit log-ins and create new log-in information.  You will be required to enter site URL together with your username and password.  Ensure that the box next to Require Identity Safe password is ticked before you fill it and then close. 


Validate your Norton Identity password prior to logging in and access all your accounts automatically.
