Hide Password Manager Icon

Is there a way to temporarily hide the Password Manager icon in fillable fields, without completely turning it off in the browser extensions?  I am trying to log into a site on my MacBook, which Safari has saved from prior to installing Norton, but I can't select the little dropdown to choose it, because the Password Manager icon is there, and I cant click behind it.  The image I am attaching will give a better idea of what I mean.

Re: Hide Password Manager Icon

Any and all websites that have a field to fill in a username and password are obstructed like this.  Fortunately the most recent Mac update helps fix this slightly, but there are passwords that I may have to search the keychain for.  While it isn't a problem on every site, it's frustrating when I am trying to access my saved Keychain passwords and the Password Manager is blocking access to it.

The only way to remove the icons is to temporarily disable the Norton Password Manager extension.

What I sometimes find on my Windows laptop is that moving the cursor around in the vicinity of the the two icons will sometimes give me access to both password managers I use.

I have tried that, along with trying to reload the page and being quick enough to grab the second pulldown before the Norton one shows up, which has yet to actually work sadly.  That is a bit of a bummer that there isn't anything the can be done for this.  You would think Norton would fix an issue where their product pretty much blocks out another option.

Re: Hide Password Manager Icon

Generally a user will choose one password manager, using that exclusively. Often you can import any other logins to your preferred manager.

Having a switch to temporarily disable NPM might be a good suggestion for the Product Suggestions board https://community.norton.com/forums/product-suggestions
