Norton Identity Safe – Free Password Manager
Norton Identity Safe is a free password manager that makes logging into your favorite sites easier and more secure.
You need to create a Norton account, then specify a strong password for protecting a so-called vault where your data will be stored. The password cannot be recovered if you forget it, so make sure the hint you set up can really help you remember the passphrase.
Once you install Norton Identity Safe, it will integrate with your browsers (it is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox) and will add a new toolbar so you can easily access its functions.
Each time you enter your credentials using one of the supported browsers, the application automatically saves them and automatically fills in the form the next time you access it, thus saving you time and energy in the long run.
Additionally, you can manually add entries to the vault, by assigning each item a title (so you can easily identify them in the future), enter the login URL, username and password – Norton Identity Safe can evaluate the strength of your passwords, so you know which ones should be replaced with stronger ones.
In addition to login information, Norton Identity Safe can also be used as a handy address book, as you can create a database of addresses where you mention not only the postal code, home and work addresses of your contacts, but also their full names, date of birth and email.
Alternatively, Norton Identity Safe can help you make safe payments on the web, as it analyzes the website you are visiting, so you can be sure you are visiting a legit one.
All in all, Norton Identity Safe can considerable increase the security of your online operations, by encouraging you to use more powerful passwords and helping you make sure your payments are secure.
