PW GENERATOR

I use PW Mgr &haven't any complaints, just a question: I saw the PASSWORD GENERATOR, took a peek, & decided that I need more info! Is IT for changing Norton pw's only, or for any pw/any app? Does it replace old pw's&store those newly generated?

Re: PW GENERATOR

I think maybe I understand it now. The PW GENERATOR is where I modify the settings/requirements for my vault's PW, and it appears it may generate a pw for me, as well. IS THIS CORRECT?

Re: PW GENERATOR

Does this help.

The Password Generator in Norton Password Manager lets you create highly secure passwords that are difficult to crack or guess. Whenever you create a new login, you can use the Password Generator to create strong passwords. To use Password Generator, you need to have the Norton Password Manager installed on your browser.

Re: PW GENERATOR

So here's the rub. I look at the site risk assessment from Norton and it said my password for Newegg is weak. Ok, so I log into Newegg and change my password and let Norton Generate a secure password for me.

Now I have a new secure password for NewEgg, but the Vault still has the old password. Now I'm locked out of my Newegg account.

I guess we manually have to copy the password field from the new password and paste them back into the vault (lesson learned).
