Do I Really Need The Norton Tool Bar ?

I wondering, do I really need the Norton Tool Bar. I don't use "Identity Safe". What else is in the NTB, that's not covered by N360, and the browser protection ?

Why would I require the Norton Tool Bar ?

Be safe out there ! AK
N360 (current), Vista Home Premium, only supports IE9.

You do not need the toolbar if you do not use Identity Safe or Norton Safe Search. The only other feature you would lose is a visual indication that the web page you are visiting is secure or dangerous. This last feature would still be covered by Norton showing a message in your browser if you did go to a possibly malicious page.

Your browser protections will still be functioning if you hide the toolbar.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

I don't use ID Safe either. I use the Norton Tool Bar for Safe Web. The website you visit maybe safe and not malicious but Safe Web will tell you if the site is a scam by the Safe Web Reviews. Norton detects malware, not scammers, spammers on the website.
