Norton Identity Safe – Symantec’s free cloud service


Norton (Symantec) recently launched the Identity Safe mobile cloud-based security service in beta trial mode. It’s a free password management browser toolbar (IE only) that allows users to store and manage (via upload) logins and passwords for apps, websites and for example online banking services. The cloud integration allows you to synchronise your login across multiple devices including mobile. It looks like the browser is sandboxed, but I cannot confirm it right now.

After you download and install the PC version which installs a browser toolbar in IE, you might also want to download the iOS or Android app (use your camera to click on the QR code) if you want to use the multiple device synching option. Note: the mobile app uses a native ‘private’ browser (which doesn’t cache your surfing behaviour), so if you want to aggregate your online identities into one secure box, you’ll be unable use Safari for example. You will be asked to remember a single eight character master password, which will not be recoverable by Symantec. So don’t forget your password folks! Read more....
