How to auto-fil credit card 3 number code?

I entered my credit card info in Password manager but there was no where to put the cards 3 number security code. So when buying/paying online by credit card how is that number entered? Why is there not a box in Wallet to enter it? If I have to run and find my card every time I need it to pay for something this program is pretty much useless to me.

Hello Jay. Have you considered adding that information as a "tag"? More info on that is here. You can also drop this as a suggestion in the "Product Suggestions" thread as well for future addition.

Cheers

The card security code is intended to prove that the card user in a "card not present" transaction, such as an online purchase, actually is in possession of the card, or at least has seen the physical card.  Merchants are not allowed to store the CSC.  The reason CSCs exist is to have a verifiable number that is not stored anywhere except with the card issuer.  The point is that if a data store of credit card numbers is breached, the hackers will not have the CSC and therefore will not be able to use the credit card number by itself in "card not present" transactions - they would need the actual card to access a user's credit line. 

Identity Safe is a data store, so the prudent policy is also not to store the CSC along with the card number.  To do otherwise would negate the purpose of having a CSC in the first place.  The CSC is a security feature of the card; it is intended to keep your account safe and, to the extent that a password manager could be accessed by an unauthorized user, Norton has chosen to respect the rationale for the CSC, even at the expense of some convenience.
