identify safe question

I don't plan to use the identify safe feature. 

I have a dumb question.  By default it's on.  Do I need to turn it off and how?  Or just leave it on and ignore it?

XP, SP3

IE 8

NIS 2013 (as of 4-8-13)

Hi Blue452,

 

Not everyone uses the feature. Go to Settings > Click the Web tab > Identity Safe on the left column > Identity Safe to the right > move slider to the Off position > click Apply.

 

I hope you plan to leave your Norton Safe Web settings in place.

Re: identify safe question

Edjr60, thank you so much for answering my question. 

I followed your instructions below and turned off identity safe.  Now the vault and login assistant are no longer on the Norton toolbar. 

I'm still debating whether or not to disable the Norton search, as I normally use Google. 

And yes, the Safe Web setting is in place on the toolbar.  I depend on this when I use Google.  Many times it helped me to avoid unsafe sites.  I disabled safe share after I found out what it was for.

I'm now happy with my Norton toolbar.  You and others who help users like me with answering questions are very much appreciated.

Thank you again and have a nice day/evening.

Hi Blue452,

 

I was glad to be of assistance. Should you decide to disable Nortons Safe Search, it's easy to do .. screenshot below.

Re: identify safe question

...and just to add to Ed's post if I may - and you will still have Norton Safe Web enabled!

Oops, I clicked on "Me too", not realizing what it was for until after the fact.  That "1 person found this solution to be helpful" is me the originator of this thread.  Sorry.   

Next time I'll know better. 

Well, my mistake gives me a chance to say thank you to Ed for the screenshot in his second post and also to Yank for his post.
