Definitely a scam.  Just hang up.

Just another example of cold callers  targeting a specific product. They pick popular products like Microsoft Windows and Norton knowing that they have a very good chance of getting someone with that product.

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

Re: Phone call saying my identity safe has been compromised

Somebody calls you up out of nowhere and asks for the master password to your password manager vault....

It is really sad that some people fall for this sort of thing.  It seems like an obvious thing that you should never divulge any sensitive information to somebody you don't know who calls and requests it...under ANY circumstances.
