Xfinity Norton Security Suite and Norton Identity Safe

Hello,

 

I was wondering if the Norton Security Suite will ever have Norton Identity Safe's online vault features. If not, I will just uninstall Security Suite and install Identity Safe. I do know there is a workaround for this, but I don't want to have to have 2 different vaults then sync them manually.

 

Also, when Identity Safe becomes a paid for product, will I still be able to use it for free even if my computers do not have it installed?

I have seen loaded qustions in the past, but this is a new one.  I do not believe anyone can answer that question with any certainty.  Without getting into the nitty-gritty, the reason there are parts of the N 360 missing from NSS is because of contract, marketing and other pressures.  NSS does not have online storage as part of it - so thus no online vault either.

 

Now prasanna_a may be able to give you more information as a Norton employee, but I am also a customer here and at Comcast and I have brought this situation up in the past and did not really get a lear answer on if it would be considered. 

 

You can add your suggestion on the Product Suggestion Board on this forum and see if it garners any support.

 

 

If not, I will just uninstall Security Suite and install Identity Safe. I do know there is a workaround for this, but I don't want to have to have 2 different vaults then sync them manually.

 

I am running Win 7 on 2 desktops (one with NIS 2012 and the other with NSS) - they can not "sync" with each other.  I also have a Vist laptop running NIS 2012 and the two NIS products "sync" very nicely.  I can use a USB drive to backup/export either my local vault or my online vault on either NIS system and then Import/Restore that data to my NSS system.  Takes less than 5 minutes and as I do not add many sig-ins - I do it roughly every two weeks or so.

 

I have also heard of being able to set up another dummy Norton Account in order to have an online vault available - by using the "free ID Safe program".

 

Also, when Identity Safe becomes a paid for product, will I still be able to use it for free even if my computers do not have it installed?

 

Have a look here - https://identitysafe.norton.com/?ctb_product=Norton

 

it states Download by October 1, 2012 and enjoy it FREE of charge.  So I would guess that might be a limiting factor.


 I'm sorry if that is't much help but I hope that gives you something to go on.  The other option is to purchase either NIS or N360 which does have the capability you are seeking.

  Thats what I meant by manually syncing it. Also, I didn't want to do that because I add so many logins
