Norton Identity Safe Import/Export settings

You can export your Identity Safe data for security purposes, data recovery, or when you transfer your Identity Safe data to a new computer. The backup files are saved as .DAT files.

You can protect the files that you backed up with a password. Symantec recommends that you use a password to keep your Identity Safe data more secure. The backup password does not need to be the same as your Identity Safe password. You must provide the password when you restore the Identity Safe data that you backed up.

You can import your Identity Safe data from the file that you previously backed up. Your vault password cannot be reset. So, Symantec recommends that you back up your vault data periodically. When you enable automatic backup feature, backups of your vault are automatically created and stored locally on your device. You can access your vault backups at Users\<User Name>\My Documents\Norton Identity Safe Backups\<Norton account name>.

When you import the Identity Safe data you can do the following:

  • Merge the imported data in to the vault that you are currently signed in.

  • Replace the existing Identity Safe data that you stored in your vault that you are signed in with the imported data.
