As a blogger, so much of my life is on my computer. I write blog posts, I send and receive money on Pay Pal, I correspond with readers and guest bloggers, and I just have a good time on my computer. Between Twitter, WordPress, and my email accounts, I’m always typing in password after password to get to the site I want to visit.
I can think of so many different times where I’ve been “locked out” of a site because I couldn’t remember my password. I have so many different passwords and they’re all different, but similar.
I often get confused about which password goes with which login. It’s frustrating and it’s a waste of time. And then all the times that I’m shopping online. Yes, it’s probably too often, but that’s not the point. I shop online more often than I shop in actual stores. And entering my credit card information over and over again just gets old. And I can have accounts at all of my favorite online retailers, but that requires having a password. And I have to remember that password.
Before I was introduced to the Norton Identity Safe program, I had some of my passwords randomly written down on sticky notes in my planner. I had some of my older passwords saved into an Excel file. And how easy is it to actually access that Excel file? Not easy at all. Especially when I’m not at my home computer.
The Norton Identity Safe app allows me to store my passwords, credit card information and form information, and notes all in one very secure location. It helps me determine which websites are secure and which ones aren’t.
The software also tells me when my passwords are “weak” or when they’re “strong” enough. It allows me to fill out annoying forms in just one click. I can finally feel okay about making up new passwords for each account because I’m not afraid of forgetting the password.
Not only am I able to see all of my saved passwords in the Norton Identity Safe program on my computer, but I also have the Norton Identity Safe app on my iPhone and my iPad. I have passwords saved into my Identity Safe Vault and all I have to do is enter my “vault” password to access all of my saved passwords.
When I’m on the go and needed to access so many different secure websites and programs, this makes life so much easier. To login to the Norton Identity Safe mobile add, I have to enter my Norton account information. And then enter the vault password to access my logins.
This app is so secure and so helpful! I love that I can access this information from all of my devices and that it cuts down on so much time for me to locate the information I need.
