HATE THE ONLINE VAULT

I bought a new laptop that had a trial version of a newer version of NIS installed. It had the online vault. I actually uninstalled it, and installed NIS 2012, which I had already paid for.

I disliked the online vault for 2 reasons: 1). I had to login to Norton everyday and change my vault password. 2). When logins failed (and they do), I couldn't just look them up.

Please someone give me simple instructions on how to disable the Online vault and use the computer version of the vault/passwords.

So, when I renew my Norton I can buy a newer version, but still use the computer version, NOT an online vault.

HELP, HELP, HELP, PLEASE...

Hi wagygirl,

Please tell us exactly what you have installed at present. I assume NIS 2012, but does it have a Local Vault, or an Online Vault?

Also please tell us what your end desire is - NIS V 21 (2014 ) with just a Local Vaultis my guess, but please verify so we can give you instructions on how to get you where you want to be.

It sounds like you may have already done what you say you want to do. With the install of 2012, when you go to set up the ID Safe vault, it should be a local vault that is set up.

Once you set this up, if you want , you can upgrade to the latest version and you will maintain your access to the local vault. Just be sure you read any prompts closely to retain the local vault.

If you want to stay on 2012, go into Settings - Computer - Updates and turn off the setting for Automatic Download of New Version.

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

Watch for what prompts exactly?

I definately want the newest more secure vesrsion of NIS installed, really don't want to deal with an online vault at all.

NOTE: I woud have replied to this thread, but never received email that it was replied to.

I hate the online vault for all the same reasons.  It should be an option, not a requirement.  Having to log in after every boot is completely a pain.

This is where they explained to me how to use Norton without the online vault, and use the local vault like normal.

Hope it helps.
