I recently had the opportunity to start using the Norton password manage software, Identity Safe!
The nice part is, you can now download it for free through October 1st!
The thing I've enjoyed most about the program is managing my passwords and the automatic fill out for forms and such.
I don't know about you, but I always thought it was the greatest idea to have a different password for everything. Why? No clue. Obviously in the long run, it has not turned out to be very easy to remember all those passwords. Actually, they aren't all different, but there are definitely many possibilities.
Therefore, when I'm logging into something, it always takes me more than once, usually more than twice, to enter the right password.
Yes, I do get locked out of my own accounts for this. Quite a pain, really.
I'm sure you've all heard of Norton's Anti-Virus programs before. They've been around a LONG time and keep coming up with ways to keep us safe and now, help us stay a bit organized in the process.
They do all kinds of things FOR YOU, safely!
I like that there is a little icon right at the top of my computer and it shows all my accounts that I want/need logins for. I can also just go up there to launch the site and it takes me right where I need to be...especially when I'm not certain in of the password. This is also known as the "vault" and you can enter all your accounts and passwords up there.
I've jotted down a list of about 15 sites I'm going to enter into my vault so I'm not constantly scrambling to remember their login and password information.
Every time your computer closes, you have to enter your vault password to access this. You can also log out of it at any time.
I want to do some more exploring on the not making feature. I'm constantly starting email drafts to make notes and that ends up being a bit chaotic as well.
Seriously, if you want to keep your passwords organized, safely, and have safe notes, I highly recommend Identity Safe. Download for free right now HERE.
