Norton Identity Safe

Identity Safe helps you manage your identities and provide additional security while you perform online transactions.

The following features in Identity Safe provide secure storage of your sensitive information:


Stores login information, such as your login credentials for your online bank account, email user ID, and password.


Stores your personal information, such as name, date of birth, postal address, email address, and phone numbers.


Stores your financial information, such as card information, bank account information and credit payment details.


Stores any text that you enter for future reference.

In addition to being a depository of sensitive information, Identity Safe provides the following features:

  • Protects you from identity theft when you perform online transactions.

  • Lets you easily manage multiple credit card information.

  • Safeguards the data that you save on your computer.

    By saving your data with a local vault, you can prevent your sensitive Identity Safe data on your computer from being misused. A local vault is specific to each of the Windows user accounts present on your computer.

After you install Norton, you are prompted to add the Norton toolbar to the Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome browsers.

The Norton toolbar has the following components:

  • Safe Web indicator

  • Vault is open/Vault closed menu

  • Share via

  • Norton Toolbar settings (...)

For more information on how to add Norton browser extensions to your web browser, read Add the Norton browser extensions.

When you have logins in Identity Safe, the Vault is open menu displays the entire list of logins stored in the Identity Safe. Instead of you have to access a website and to enter the login information, you can directly click a login from the stored list to access the website.

If you turn off Identity Safe, you cannot access your logins and Identity Safe features from the Norton toolbar.

You can access Identity Safe even after the product expires. However, the product might not detect the latest attacks, as the virus definition is not updated after the product expires. Hence, it is not safe to browse the Internet after Norton expires as you are vulnerable to online thefts and phishing attacks.

Thank you!

Thank you for using Norton Support.
