Exporting your Identity Safe data

Import/Export option is available only on Windows.

You can export your Identity Safe data for security purposes, data recovery, or when you transfer your Identity Safe data to a new computer. You can enable automatic backup feature to create backups of your Vault automatically. The backups that are created automatically are stored locally on your device at Users\<User Name>\My Documents\Norton Identity Safe Backups\<Norton account name>.

To enable automatic backup, on the Norton Identity Safe main window, click settings icon that is denoted by a cog wheel > click Import/Export tab, and check Enable automatic backups.

To export your Identity Safe data

  1. Click the Norton Identity Safe icon on your desktop or taskbar.

  2. If prompted, in the Sign in or create account window, use your Norton account email address and password to log in to Identity Safe.

  3. In the Norton Identity Safe main window, click Settings, and then click Import/Export tab.

    You can select one of the following:

    • Identity Safe Backup Format - DAT File

      You can password protect your DAT file for additional security.

    • Plain text - CSV file (Logins & Notes only)

  4. Click Export.

  5. In the File name box, type, or browse to the location to which you want your data saved. Type the name that you want to assign to the file with a .DAT suffix.
