Sync local vault to cloud vault

You can sync the Identity Safe data from your local vault to the cloud vault. When you move the data from your local vault to cloud vault, all the data in your local vault is removed permanently.

The latest versions of Norton Security support only the cloud vault feature. If you have local vault created using the earlier versions, you need to move your local vault to cloud. You can no longer continue to use local vault. You can use the Merge option in the Go Cloud? window to move your local vault to cloud.

The Go Cloud? window is enabled only when you have created a local vault.

The following are the benefits of moving your Identity Safe data online:

  • Lets you access your Identity Safe data from any computer.

    Your computer must have the Norton Security installed and must be connected to the Internet.

  • Lets you access your Identity Safe data on any device through the Norton Identity Safe website.

  • Provides a convenient means to automatically synchronize Identity Safe data across different computers using your Norton account.

You must sign in to your Norton account to move the Identity Safe data from your local vault to cloud vault.
