In this virus-prone digital world, every user wants a security solution that can ensure highest level of protection against all kinds of online threats. To serve this purpose, Norton has come to the rescue. Norton, the well-known online security solution provider offers a number of solutions in the form of antivirus, WiFi privacy and more that users can select from.
For safe browsing, Norton offers a Norton Identity Safe, which is a free password manager that ensures safe logging into your favorite websites. Once you get this, you will see a toolbar on the top of your web browser. All you need to do is visit any website, sign in to your online vault from the Norton toolbar and then access or update your login credentials.
Opening vault from the Norton Identity Safe toolbar depends on the browser you are using. For your ease, we have mentioned steps for all the popular browsers. Have a look:
