Have you ever noticed how many different passwords we have for the various different accounts we have over the Internet? Are you like me and can’t seem to remember all those passwords for all those accounts, so you do the one thing you’re told you should never ever do (HINT: write them down on a piece of paper that you keep in that long drawer of your desk with all those random pens and pencils)? Fear not, fellow CRSs! Norton is here with their new app/program Identity Safe! With Identity Safe, Norton has created a vault that will keep all that personal information you use on a regular basis on websites safe and secure. Some of the other features the Identity Safe program has are an auto-fill (auto-fill your addresses, credit cards, frequent flyer numbers, etc.), the ability to securely save notes and quickly find them when you need them, easily share straight from Identity Safe to any or all of your social media accounts and a Safe Web/Safe Search feature that will let you know whether a site is not one you should be on before it loads. The program also works across multi-web browsers, making your information available to you no matter what browser you’re using. It’s also available across devices and platforms. There are free apps for iOS and Android mobile devices that will make accessing your favorite websites more secure and easy while you’re on the go. The program is very simple to use. If you visit the Norton Identity Safe site, you can download it for free and get started. Once you’ve downloaded the software, you’ll need to create a Norton account, if you don’t have one already, and an account for the Identity Safe Program. Unfortunately, the password for Identity Safe is not one that the program itself will save for you (it is also not recoverable if you should forget it, but does offer a “password hint” feature to help you remember it). After that, it’s relatively easy to go about saving your passwords into the vault. You go to a site that requires a login, you login, Identity Safe asks if it’s okay to save this information and Bob’s your uncle. You don’t have to remember or write that login information down anymore. It’s as simple as that. And if you’d like a chance to win an Android Tablet courtesy of Norton, share a story about a time you forgot or lost your password! Each response is an automatic entry into a sweepstakes to win 1 of 5 Android Tablets with Norton Mobile Security and Identity Safe already installed on it!
