Passwords have become a part of every day life for anyone who uses a computer. Whether you want to check your email, pay bills, update your status, watch movies, play games, or simply browse your favorite websites, chances are you’re going to need to enter a password. Ok, we’ve stated the obvious. Now, how do you keep track of all those passwords? Do you write them on sticky notes by your computer? Or better yet, on a word document titled “Passwords”? You are asking for trouble if you are doing either one of those two options. And yes, we know that keeping track of all those passwords can be a real pain in the neck.
Throw away those dozens, and dozens of post it notes, and join the 21st Century! One way to simplify password management is to use Norton™ Identity Safe. This easy-to-use, secure password manager eliminates the hassle of remembering all your user names and passwords. It automatically captures and stores your logins and enters them for you. And it’s FREE.
Here’s how it works. When you visit a website that requires you to log in, Identity Safe asks you if you want it to store your user name and password in a secure password vault created for you in the cloud. Then the next time you visit the site, Identity Safe will automatically enter your user name and password for you, making it easier and more convenient to use stronger, unique passwords that better protect your identity. The vault is password protected, so instead of having to remember multiple passwords, you only have to remember one. And, it’s FREE!
Use a tablet or mobile phone? No problem. Download the free Norton Identity Safe apps for iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ phones and tablets, so you can enjoy the same password freedom when you’re on the go. Did we mention, that this app is FREE?!
In addition to secure password storage, Identity Safe lets you save your credit card numbers, billing addresses, shipping addresses, and other profile information and automatically enters it for you for a fast, secure online shopping. You can forget about filing the same information over and over again. And if you need help creating a strong password, you can take advantage of our password generator tool. Yes, all of this, is FREE, too.
You can easily access your stored information, anytime, from your Identity Safe home page where all of your logins and other confidential information are visually represented. It’s good place to see what you’ve saved and to change Norton Identity Safe’s settings. You can even set it as your browser’s home page, so that your logins are at your fingertips every time you open your browser.
For additional identity protection, Identity Safe also includes Norton Safe Web. It warns you of and blocks malicious websites to protect you from phishing attacks and other websites set up to steal your passwords and other information.
Plus, Identity Safe’s Share Via feature lets you easily and safely share links to cool stuff you find online with a single click. It automatically scans links before you share them, so you don’t accidentally send your friends and family to a dangerous site. Still free, free, free.
Identity Safe also allows you to export your password date and save a copy on your desktop.
With Norton Identity Safe, you’ll enjoy true password freedom and keep your user names and passwords safer, better organized, and harder to steal.
