Norton WiFi Privacy Windows (built-in) Settings

Would like to use windows 10 built in VPN but I need the setup information. I found that the app that I installed always forgets the username and password. This is not good for my application because I need it to be on all the time when the computer is turned on.

Norton Wifi Privacy, NWP only runs as a Windows app. It cannot be integrated into the Windows settings.

NWP will be running all the time when the computer is turned on if you check the settings Launch at Startup, and Auto Connect, in NWP settings.

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

Peterweb,

I understand run on startup. The issue with this is sometimes this app is requiring Login information at startup and not remembering the user name and password. This is not good for the other users that have non admin accounts on this computer that I require to login to a VPN when using particular software that has been installed.

Something you might be able to try is choosing what virtual location you want to use. Take note of the IP address that is assigned. Then go back to your Windows settings and enter that IP address in the Server Name field. You will have to experiment on your own on what the other fields need as their settings. I just tried quickly and could not get it to work.

I believe the settings in Windows are for products that are meant to be integrated into that settings page. NWP is designed to be run stand alone.
