I need my Norton Vault back on my laptop!

I may be a bit understanding of Norton deciding to not make the Norton Password Vault publicly available as a stand alone application. But as a very-long-term Norton subscriber, I am extremely saddened and disappointed that the decision was made to include licensed Norton Subscibers in that decision. Here is why. I have a 3-seat license for Norton 360, so I have the Vault on my PC, my wife's PC and my cell phone (which I use for both personal and business). For several years now I have been using the Vault on my company laptop as well, since about half of my 50 or so passwords are business-related and many of my online memberships are used for both personal development and business-related development. I am a firm believer in not using the same password or even the same password pattern, so having easy-to-manage password management software is critical to me - for both personal and work. Sadly, I cannot put Norton 360 on my laptop since the Corp only allows McAfee - and now I am completely exposed since my Norton chat-person could only give me the advise to print out my passwords - defeating the whole purpose of password management!

So I ask, please, tell me that there a reasonable solution for me to get a local-based Password Vault back on my machine without the main Norton application. Otherwise, I will need to replace all of my Password Vaults with another product.

Hi ghv393,

I know this is not an answer to your question, but the IDSS still does function (the download is not available) - but may not in the future.   In case you missed it, here is the announcement by Tony Weiss:


I totally understand where you are coming from and how you are handicapped by "Corp".  FWIW, other users have mentioned LastPass as a good alternative.

One additional note to yank's information.

Using the Stand Alone version of ID Safe on your corp laptop, you were using the same cloud vault you are using on your other Norton protected computers. The vault was never on your laptop.

FWIW I have been testing Lastpass alongside my Norton ID Safe. Looks good so far.

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