I am pretty good at remembering passwords, but even so there are a couple that I can never seem to remember. My bank requires me to change my online password every few months. It won't allow me to use a previous password, so every few months I get completely locked out of my online banking. And my cable company, the company that requires me to login to see the bill for my TV, internet, phone, and cell phone service, it has the strangest password requirements known to man. I kid you not, EVERY SINGLE MONTH I have to reset my password because I have no idea what I selected the month before.
There are a few ways to prevent forgetting passwords. You can write them down, keep them in a word document, or allow your browser to remember them.But all of these have limitations, not the least of which being that they aren't exactly safe. What if you can't find where you wrote them down? Or if someone else accesses your word document. What if you aren't at home on your desktop? All of those methods go down the drain.
So now there is an option that is safe, secure, convenient, and accessible from a computer or mobile device. It allows you to memorize one magical password that unlocks all of your passwords on any device you own. Norton Identity Safe.
And did I mention the best part? It is free. Not just free trial free, but download it now and it is free forever free.
So how does it work? You have a vault of information that is protected by your one password and the protection of Norton, the company that millions of people have trusted to keep their computer safe for years. Your vault contains the login and passwords of all of the accounts that you access. You can enter them in manually or you can just allow Norton Identity Safe to save them while you visit your favorite sites.
In addition to passwords, you can also choose to store your personal information and credit card information so that filling out online forms and checking out online becomes a breeze. And what about other information that you might want safely secured?
There is a place to keeps notes in your vault as well. They can be as innocent as a Christmas list you don't want your kids getting their hands on or pin numbers that you need help remembering but don't want to write down on paper.
After you have entered your informaion, all you have to do is login to your vault:
And click on the site you want to access:
The shortcut will take you right to the site with your login information already filled in. And if I downstairs and want to pay a few bills using the kids computer in the kitchen, I just login to my vault and all of the passwords are there. If I am out of town I can do the same thing from my iPad or iPhone. My vault goes with me wherever I go.
