Superfluous Norton Identity safe icon in Chrome

Why do I suddenly have an extra Norton Identity Safe icon in Chrome?

It has only appeared after updating Chrome to Version 48.0.2564.116 m (64-bit) and so far only on one of my Windows 10 machines.

Thanks.

You can hide it by right clicking it and selecting to Hide in Chrome menu but I can't find out to remove it without removing the ID Safe extension.  I tried that too but as soon as you reinstall it the icon returns too.

Well, after updating Chrome to Version 49.0.2623.75 m (64-bit) I now have this superfluous Norton Identity Safe icon on my other Win10 machine.  Nice to see Symantec's concern for this issue.

Yes, it would be nice to see new update for Norton Identity Safe extension maybe it would solve the problem, but the current version 1.0.5 as I can see on the Chrome Web Store was updated on August 2014!?  So it looks like Symantec team doesn't really care about improving this toolbar.

This is not superfluous.  One is for Norton Tool Bar, and the other is for Identify Safe.  Look also in your extensions window.  You will see TWO different Norton extensions, and notice their icon designs and version numbers.

Sorry, but it IS superfluous in my opinion because we already have the Identity Safe itself.  Why have an extra [useless] icon??

Well, it looks like this isn't a problem with norton toolbar at all... check this article out http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2500377,00.asp

Yeah, I heard about that.  Strange though that it started before v49 was released.

Ah, Google. The company that just keeps on giving. Extra buttons you don't want, and annoying doodles on my home page.
