Must I use cloud passwords?

Hello:  I did search but found no definitive answer for the current version of 360, If I were to go to pd version (from cnss), would I not be able to store my pw locally on pc must I use the cloud?  ( to avoid two posts is this true for nis too?)

This would be a new install new purchase.

Thank you for info.  I really must know for certain before I decide.

Hi artfreak,

Yes, there is a way you can go from CNSS to the most recent version of N 360 or NIS and maintain the Local Vault.  It is a round about way of doing things though. 

Just to give you an idea, Export your ID safe data in both .CSV and .DAT format (to be able to import it into the older 2012 product you will need to install in order to maintain the local vault), remove the CNSS via Control Panel, reboot, run the NRT, reboot, install the 2012 version of N 360(V6) or NIS (v19).  Activate.  You would then want to stop the auto update to new  version so you can manually update it once the ID Safe is set up for the Local Vault, you would then at that point have to download the v 20 product and then upgrade over the top of the 2012 product to the 2013 product (v 20) and then totally update to v 20.3.1.22, via LiveUpdate and any necessary patches.

Now there is not telling if the local vault - upgraded in such a manner will be continued to be maintained in future versions of with N 360 or NIS.  I can tell you that in certain situations when you need to reinstall NSI or N 360 - you may lose the Local Vault - and may be able to get it back by going thru the above all over again.

Hi, thank you for the detailed response, I needed that info to decide for future use for myself and relatives.

I hope it doesnt come to that.   It sounds then that new norton prod' do make you use the cloud unless you loaded from older product.   Bummer.

I woulda' asked ya on cn boards but I guess it belonged here.

I will digest this and decide when ness' thanks again.
