Identity Safe + download on desktop Windows 10

Looking to download Identity Safe as a stand alone desktop program instead of using Norton Security (identity safe feature) with Windows 10. I know there is a reference (link) within the community but just couldn't find it. Any instruction how to download Identity Safe as a program instead of using the cloud or through NS would be appreciated. I Would like to continue to use Edge as a browser instead of hopping around browsers at this time.

Thanks

Re: Identity Safe + download on desktop Windows 10

The site where you can download the stand alone IDSafe, IDSS is   https://identitysafe.norton.com

A couple of things to note. 

  • You cannot use the IDSS if you have any Norton security product
  • The Edge browser does not support any 3rd party add ons yet.
  • if you use IDSS,your vault will be set up in the cloud, on Norton servers. It is not stored on your local PC.
Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

I agree that IDSS is unable to function with NS (cause it already has it) and W10(edge) (a few other variables as well). What do you think of this route. Using the Stand alone safe by just storing info within the IDSS and using the copy and paste function when entering login info within a unsupported browser? (work around). But that doesn't matter right cause NS is installed? disabling the ID/toolbar  hasn't worked yet (turning it off on NS) wondering if someone is using the IDSS by using it to store info while having NS installed.

You won't be able to install IDSS if NS is installed.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

This is what you'll see if you do attempt to install IDSS when you have another Norton product installed that already has Identity safe:
