A Great New Tool That Can Simplify Passwords (Finally)!

by on ‎04-24-2012 07:08 PM

Password management isn’t particularly new. Most of us make half-hearted attempts at creating tough ones that no one could guess. But then we discover we can’t remember them.  So you hit the “Forgot My Password” link on site after site. Then you probably graduated to the most popular but terrible method, writing passwords on slips of paper on your desk. I’ve even visited offices where passwords are taped to the computer monitor. Not good, people, not good at all.


Back in January, I blogged that our terrific Norton Identity Safe was now designed to be mobile. And we had it in beta for a while, allowing testers like me to give a whirl and try logging in to accounts using our iPads and other mobile devices. I can tell you that using Norton Identity Safe as a mobile app is great. I can be upstairs in my home, ordering products online and logging into accounts with ease. I can access subscription websites or sign into secure work sites without remembering all those complicated password configurations or even having to type them on those little touch screens. It’s not like there’s spell check for passwords, is there? No wonder we think we’ve forgotten our password when we probably just mistyped on those itty bitty keyboards.  With Norton Identity Safe, there’s no typing, just click the icon for your desired website. The program fills in your user name and password, encrypting it so no one can spy on your information.


Norton Identity Safe is now a much more powerful offering because it’s in the cloud, meaning your account logins and passwords are secured, encrypted and stored in a vault you can access via any web browser. No more weak passwords like your children’s names or the name of your favorite baseball team. No more using a single password on every account because it’s the only way you can remember them all. The only password you will need is the master one for your online account. Thereafter, you can login into your accounts by clicking that website’s icon in Norton Identity Safe’s app or online site. Use the built-in search window for safe, Norton Secured search results. You’ll get color coded ratings that can help you stay away from malicious websites or dangerous downloads.


All your data gets synched across all your computers and devices – tucked safely behind that fluffy white Norton cloud. Just get started by sitting down at your main computer and visiting the website https://identitysafe.norton.com/. Then you’ll get simple to follow instructions to add this service to any of your mobile devices. You’ll also be able to return to this website from any computer, meaning your data is not only safe, not just mobile but now also portable. And not on a yellow sticky note either.
