Remove Norton Cloud Vault

I just renewed my Norton Security Deluxe, and when completing the install, got to the password vault (I use a local vault only) and was greeted with "Cloud Vault Setup Complete!" and the option to merge or keep both.

I don't want a cloud vault and did not act to create one. How do I delete it?

Thanks,

Brian

Re: Remove Norton Cloud Vault

Be sure you choose the option to keep both, if you have not already done that. 

Unfortunately, there is very little that can be done with a local vault these days. The only browser you can still use a local vault for is Internet Explorer. 

So if you still want to delete your cloud vault, just try logging in with the wrong password three times. That should bring up a prompt to reset your vault with a new password. This new vault will be empty and you can just ignore it.

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

When I log in to the cloud vault and kill it as you instruct above, will this affect my local vault, or they separate?

They are, as the names imply, totally separate entities. Local vault stored on your PC, Cloud vault stored on Norton Servers. Deleting one will have zero affect on the other.

Just be sure to back up before you try deleting anything. Just in case.
