Norton ID safe

Does Norton ID safe timeout?



Re: Norton ID safe

If you are using an online/cloud vault your login session does timeout for security reasons.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Norton ID safe

Every time I open Chrome browser and click on the new Identity Safe icon all my logins are there and if I want to I can read the password I have set it to close after 15 minutes but that does not work


Re: Norton ID safe

OKAY I just figured it out I had to close the system setting "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed"

Here's how to do it

How to Stop Chrome Running in the Background

On Windows or Linux click on the Chrome icon in the task bar/system tray, find the ‘Let Chrome run…’ option and click/tap it to disable/toggle the checkmark off.

It’s that simple. 

The behaviour can also be changed through the browser’s main settings page:

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

To reenable the feature simply repeat the steps above but reversing the final step.
