How to disable auto-sign-in of Norton Account in Norton 360

I power my computer, it loads everything including Norton 360. When i go into norton 360, it says i am already logged into my Norton account.

 

I do NOT want this to happen.

 

When I want to log into my Norton accountI, I want to be prompted   to enter my email and password.

 

So how do I disable automatic sign-in of my Norton account?

Unless of course I am mistaken, I believe you may perhaps misunderstand. The log in to which you refer is not a log in to your One account or your mynorton(Norton) account. That is a separate matter. You are logged in my virtue that N360 has been activated and subscribed to your email account. It is a function of the product key and completing details at subscription. Neither is the log in shown in the main UI anything to do with the Vault login.

Well with this login, anyone can click on Norton 360, Account, Access Norton Account, Profile, and they have all my crdentials.

 

Major security hole.

 

Basically anyone who starts my computer will  automatically be logged in to Norton 360 and can have access to all my personal info.

 

There has to be a way to turn this off. There is actually an option to sign out or change user.

 

So there must be a way to turn off auto-sign in.

 

Help.

And not only can they get all my credentials, but apparently also my security question and answer as well as they can change my password cause theres a link for that too.

 

The security  hole is huge!

 

Certainly there is a way for me to disable auto-login???

Sorry I think we are talking about different things. You might consider posting exactly what you are referring to. I thought you were referring to the login on the Norton 360 UI, but now I think you actually mean the Norton Account which can be accessed via account in Norton 360. But that only opens your browser and takes you to either mynorton or one.norton.com. I dont see autosign in.

1. Open Norton 360

2. Look at the top-right of Norton 360 UI, it will say "you are logged in as: email address"

 

This is the Login  I'm talking about.

 

You can then click on

1.Account (top right)

2.Access Norton Account (top left)

3.Profile (top right)

 

And you will see your Address, billing information, security question, password.

 

The problem is that when I boot my computer,  it loads Norton 360 with that profile already signed in, so potentially anyone could easily have access to all this information.

 

I want to have to enter my email and password everytime. I do NOT want it to load it automatically like its doing now.

 

I thought this would be an easy fix, I mean you would think that I'm not the only one with this auto-login issue and it would pose a huge security risk for many other Norton users too, so I'm surprised no one has found a solution yet.....comon people theres gotta be a way to do this.

ok I SOLVED THE PROBLEM.

 

i iUNnstalled Norton family, not sure that did anything.

 

I UNinstalled Norton management, and restarted my computer two times and the problem went away.

 

Apparently Norton  management was logging me in automatically.

 

Thanks to all that looked into this.

Yep,  I had the same thing with N360v6 and Norton Management.  As soon as I uninstalled NM the "logged in as..." disappeared.

You didn't actually need to uninstall anything.

 

To Log Off:

 

  1. Open Norton 360.
  2. On the upper right hand area of the interface, you will see a 'Manage' icon.
  3. Click the Manage icon and the Norton Management Welcome interface will open.
  4. If you are logged in to Norton, you will see a 'Log out' link that you can use to log you out of your Norton Account.

Be aware that if you are a user of the online version of the Identity Safe vault, then you will see the same 'Logged in as...' information in the main Norton 360 user interface whenever you open your online vault. You will need to follow the same process listed above to log out of your Norton Account.

Unfortunatly, I restarted my computer again and its logging into Norton all by itself again.

 

THE PROBLEM HAS NOT BEEN FIXED.
