Can I download+install Password Manager standalone

Can I install the Norton Password Manager browser extension on a computer that doesn't have any other Norton software?

I currently use LastPass password manager, and it's installed on every computer I own - home PCs, work PCs, phones. I'm looking into switching from LastPass to Norton Password Manager, but for Password Manager to work for me, it needs to be available everywhere, like LastPass. This includes my work computers where I can't install Norton Internet Security (they have corporate internet security software installed).

So, can I download and install the Password Manager browser extension on my work computer without installing any other Norton security products? If so, how do I do that?

You'll need to create a Norton account.

Why are two passwords used for Norton Password Manager?
The passwords are used for two different reasons.
First, your Norton account password identifies you and your individual online vault.
It also gives you access to other Norton services.
Next, your vault password is used to make a key to help secure your vault data.

Sorry, I should have been clear. I have a Norton subscription and have Internet Security on all my home computers. I just need Password Manager on my work computer which doesn't have (and can't have) Norton Security.

Add the Norton Password Manager extension so you can safely store and fill your passwords.

As communications between your device (such as PC or cell phone) and Symantec's servers are strongly encrypted using industry standards such as SSL/HTTPS, you generally need only consider the security of the device from which you're accessing your vault data. We recommend that you only access your vault data from a device that you trust to be secure.
