Win Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 from Norton & BlogHer 0731
Twenty bloggers are sharing their newly found password freedom by using Norton Identity Safe.
Click on the posts below to read their stories and share a story about a
time you forgot or lost your password for a chance to win one of five
Android Tablets (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 - 10.1-Inch, Wi-Fi) with Norton
Mobile Security and Identity Safe installed! Ends 7/31
Speaking of crashing, I actually had to purchase a new computer
today and used the Norton Identify Safe program. The program was simple
and easy to navigate. Best part, I’ll never have to hit the “I forgot my
password” button again (which I had to several times). Thanks to
Norton. I don’t have to worry about losing any of my passwords or
logins, they’ve got them under lock and key for me.
The beauty of my “safe” is that I can now store all of my
important information safely in one spot, categorize them and make
notations if need be. Usernames, passwords, account numbers, addresses,
credit card numbers and frequent flyer numbers you name it. It allows
you to be smart, save time and remember everything…brilliant!
Have you ever noticed how many different passwords we have for
the various different accounts we have over the Internet? Are you like
me and can’t seem to remember all those passwords for all those
accounts, so you do the one thing you’re told you should never ever do
(HINT: write them down on a piece of paper that you keep in that long
drawer of your desk with all those random pens and pencils)?
Is it just me or is it getting harder and harder to keep track of
all those usernames and passwords. Think about all the online accounts
and passwords you have. How do you remember it all? At first I was
trying to keep things simple by using the same password for everything
but then I read that you should definitely not do that. So I created new
passwords that met all the new requirements: letters, numbers, special
characters, etc. and I then when it came time to log on I couldn't
remember which password I had created for all the different accounts I
When you download Norton Identity Safe on your computer, it will
store the login information for each site you visit. On your next visit,
Norton Identity Safe will automatically enter your user information,
all while keeping your data organized, secure and synced. Norton
Identity Safe can also manage credit card numbers, addresses, and even
registration codes for software to speed up the process of filling
online forma. There is also a place in Norton Identity Safe to store
notes, such as insurance or passport numbers, promotional codes, or
frequent flier numbers.
Thanks to Norton, I no longer have to worry about losing
passwords or logins to the many sites I go to. I don’t have to create
new logins if it’s been a while since my last login either, and I have
no idea what the password might be. Norton takes care of all of that for
me with the Norton Identity Safe Program.
I asked to do this review because I was hoping that using Norton
Identity Safe would change my life. Or at least seriously streamline my
couponing efforts. Norton Identity Safe stores all of your passwords in a
“vault” behind a master password. You can open and close the vault at
will on your toolbar. And you can set higher security for some sites
than others- so you can choose for it to autofill your email login for
you OR you can choose to have to input your vault password before you it
autofills your bank password.
Needless to say I have really loved using Norton Identity Safe.
It has helped me manage my passwords and even credit card information.
It helps you fill out forms and credit card information, and it will
tell you if a website looks fraudulent. I personally love that it has an
app that you can download for your smartphone or tablet so you can
truly shop anywhere you want anytime you want and not have to go digging
into your purse for your wallet. Can a sister get an amen?! Once you
enter your information it locks it away into an online vault.
The thing I've enjoyed most about the program is managing my
passwords and the automatic fill out for forms and such. I don't know
about you, but I always thought it was the greatest idea to have a
different password for everything. Why? No clue. Obviously in the long
run, it has not turned out to be very easy to remember all those
passwords. Actually, they aren't all different, but there are definitely
many possibilities.Therefore, when I'm logging into something, it
always takes me more than once, usually more than twice, to enter the
Enter Norton Identity Safe, an online program with some seriously
awesome features. Like what, you ask? Have you ever had to go through
the tedious process of resetting your username or password because you
just can't seem to remember it? Sometimes you have to wait hours for the
password to be reset and emailed to you. Norton Identity Safe will
safely and securely store all of your usernames and passwords for you.
Just download Identity Safe then visit the site (like Twitter,
Pinterest, your banking account etc) and enter your login information.
Here’s how me and my passwords work – I either have all of them
the same which means I’m just asking to get hacked or I set them all
different and can’t remember a single one. It’s impossible. The internet
is supposed to make my life easier and instead it makes me remember
more bizarre combinations of numbers, capital letters, and symbols than
my brain is capable of.
As a blogger, so much of my life is on my computer. I write blog
posts, I send and receive money on Pay Pal, I correspond with readers
and guest bloggers, and I just have a good time on my computer. Between
Twitter, WordPress, and my email accounts, I’m always typing in password
after password to get to the site I want to visit.I can think of so
many different times where I’ve been “locked out” of a site because I
couldn’t remember my password. I have so many different passwords and
they’re all different, but similar.
Well, like everything else in my life, I must organize another
thing - my computer passwords. Aren't they such a hassle? Mine are. I'm
constantly trying to remember which password goes with which site -
since you're technically not supposed to have the same password for each
site, AND combine that with how you're "supposed" to make all kinds of
crazy dashes, upper case letters, number combos and you are completely
forgetting what the password for each site is, right?
Just the week before I heard about Norton Identity Safe, I had an
incredibly frustrating experience with my email account. For some
reason, my email provider has started logging me out of my account at
random times. I can be in the middle of sending an email, and I’ll get a
notice that my login has expired, and it’ll log me out.
Identity Safe can also help you fill out online forms with your
address, credit cards, frequent flyer numbers, etc., share content via
social networks and email, and find out whether a site is safe or bad
before you visit. You can even use the Identity Safe Password Generator
to create highly secure passwords that are difficult to crack or guess.
"Every month when I go to pay my credit card bill I panic just a
little bit. Is it this password? Nope, must be this other one. Oh, wait,
try this." It’s frustrating and ridiculous and sometimes it makes me
cry like a little baby. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I was
chosen to write about Norton Identity Safe. It’s a password manager,
y’all. And it’s by Norton so I feel pretty safe using it."
There are a few ways to prevent forgetting passwords. You can
write them down, keep them in a word document, or allow your browser to
remember them.But all of these have limitations, not the least of which
being that they aren't exactly safe. Now there is an option that is
safe, secure, convenient, and accessible from a computer or mobile
device. It allows you to memorize one magical password that unlocks all
of your passwords on any device you own. Norton Identity Safe.
I understand the importance of not using the same passwords over
and over. Unfortunately, that makes it impossible to remember every
password for every site I visit. And like many others, I stored my
logins on my browser, which worked beautifully…until my hard drive
crashed. Enter Norton Identity Safe. Now I can store all my passwords,
plus a whole lot more, in one secure place which is accessible from
multiple web browsers, devices and platforms, including my mobile phone.
If you're like me, you may have 5 bajillion passwords and
multiple user names that you use for all of the various sites that you
sign in to. On top of that you may sign in with different devices, like
your computer, laptop or your smartphone. It can be difficult to keep
track of it all and pretty darn nearly impossible to remember them.
Norton Identity Safe provides an easier, safer solution to help us out.
