Norton from Symantec

I want to back up or export my Identity Safe Vault data

Your Identity Safe vault data is stored online, and does not require you to back it up. However, with the latest versions of the Norton products, you can enable automatic backup of your Identity Safe vault data to your computer. You can also export the Identity Safe data in .DAT or .CSV file formats on to your local computer.

Export Identity Safe data

  1. Start your Norton product.

    If you have installed Norton Identity Safe, skip to Step 5.

  2. Click Settings.

  3. Under Detailed Settings, click Identity Protection.

  4. Next to Identity Safe, click Configure.

  5. In the Sign in or create account window, if your Norton account email address is displayed then click Next.

    If not, at the bottom of the Norton Identity Safe window, click on the user name and select Sign in as a different user and enter your Norton account email address.

  6. In the Sign in window, type your Norton account password, and click Sign In.

  7. In the Vault Closed window, enter your vault password and click Open.

  8. In the Norton Identity Safe window, click the Settings icon available at the bottom of the window.

  9. Click the Import/Export tab.

  10. Next to Export Vault, select one of the following file formats:

    • Identity Safe Backup Format - DAT File

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

    You can back up your data with a password for more security. By default, the automatic backup option is enabled in the latest versions. This feature saves a copy of your Identity Safe data in your local computer at C:\Users\User Name\My Documents\Norton Identity Safe Backups\Norton account name.

  11. Click Export.

  12. In the Password Protected Item window, type your vault password to export your Identity Safe data, and click OK.

  13. In the Save As window, choose a destination to save the exported file and click Save.

  14. Click OK.

Thank you!

Thank you for using Norton Support.
