That is absolutely crazy. LifeLock protw

Just spoke with Norton Tech Support. Turns out that the Password Manager for multi license (in this case, 5 licenses) all use and setup only a single password manager for all 5 licenses. That is absolutely nuts. LifeLock and Norton protect you from the outside but leave the password manager wide open to 5 people. It is not that I do not trust my family members but I do not (at least I thought) give everyone the username and password of every account of mine (bank checking, bank savings, credit union, etc.) Norton needs to give each license their own distinct passxword manager. This be done immediately just as if a piece of ransomware had been discovered.

Just contacted Kaspersky and inquired about their 5 license Total Security application. Accoding to their Tech Support each license has their own individual Password Managerk of their own. Password Manager is not shared on that product. At least now I know it is possible as well as available.

You should be able to create a Norton account for each user, then each can have their own vault.

Not according to Norton's Tech Support and later the tech's manager confirmed that this was not ale to be done in the  Norton Select LifeLock 5 license application. I was unable to create a second password manager. Please let me know if you can. Thanks for responding.

Each licensee can have a password manager BUT each user's password manager has the same username and the same password. All 5 licensees have access to all their passwords as well as the other 4 licensees. It is all 1 vault. That was what I was told by Norton. Total lack of internal security!

How about someone from Norton Tech Support comment on this and confirm if I am correct or not.....

You will need a separate email address for each account.  You don't even need to have a Norton Security product installed to create an account, so no need for a license either.

That did work on my wife's cellphone. THANKS! One last thing that really does not apply to me but what if my wife had her own laptop. I assume she could then go into Norton on her laptop and signin on her newly created PWM account.  Is that correct? Again, thanks. Appreciate your courtesy....

Yes, that is correct.
