Closing of Identity Safe Vault when Closing Chrome

It's  a little bit ridiculous, and wasting a lot of my time, to sign into the ID Safe vault every single time I close my Chrome browser.  This is something Norton should really improve on.



Re: Closing of Identity Safe Vault when Closing Chrome

Hello Barry. Both Chrome and FireFox have the same closure of IDS when the browser is closed. Evidently Norton has deemed leaving IDS open on these browsers a security risk to the end user and they natively use IDS via an extension unlike IE which loads with the OS and browser. Remaining resident until a system reboot.

  • Click on the Chrome menu (or press Alt+E)
  • Select Settings
  • Click on the link titled ‘Show advanced settings
  • Under the section headed ‘System‘ tick the box next to “Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed”.
