Norton Identity Safe in Google Chrome

I am a user of the latest version of NIS.

I have just migrated from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome.  I am confused whether the version of Norton Identity Safe which appears to be an addon of Goole Chrome, is a separate addon, or part of NIS.  It does use the same password vault is I used in Internet Exporer.

Can someone please clarify this.

Hi, dforrest. Because of the changes made by Google regarding 3rd party extensions, this Norton announcement may be what you're looking for.

Re: Norton Identity Safe in Google Chrome

Is that saying that it can use either Norton Internet Security (if installed) or the stand-alone version of Norton Identity Safe?

Re: Norton Identity Safe in Google Chrome

If you have NIS installed the Stand Alone version of Identity Safe will not install.

With Chrome, the only way you can get the add on is through the Google store. It is the full Norton Toolbar that includes the Identity Safe functions. I do not believe this is a stand alone app. Others may correct me, which is fine as I do not use Chrome.

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

This is how I installed it.

Is it, when installed, a part of Norton Internet Security or Google Chrome, for updates, fixing of errors etc.?
