Need Help understanding Identity Safe issues and migration from local to cloud
I have a two computer one router "homeowner" network. I have been an Internet user since it was ARPANET. I made a living helping others do what they wanted to do using computing technology and retired as a software systems consultant with enough gigs lined up by word of mouth to keep me busy for a couple of years.
Now I'm facing a "how to" issue with the new cloud based identity safe component of the tool bar. I subscribe to Norton's up to five device security product and have it on two Windows 10 (x64) computers and a couple of Samsung Galaxy 4 Android 5.1 smart phones.
The computers have "yours" "mine" and "ours" identities configured the same way under windows, so I can log in for administrative purposes or to conduct family business as the "ours" identity, as can my wife. The she has her identity and I have mine. Right now all this is working more or less reliably but using the toolbar accessing local identity safe databases that were set up under earlier versions of Norton products. Fairly recently, I've been running into broswer "issues" caused by the fact that Norton is looking for a cloud based identity safe when we keep essentially three separate databases of URL's and passwords on our local hard drives.
I do not want to try to "cut and paste" and test to get every URL with security that we use configured under a single cloud based dataset, especially given the number of situations caused by banks, etc. that reqired us over the years to set up separate web identities for each family member (she has her login, I have mine) situtations.
Can I "crowd source" advice on how to mange all this? One other little glitch is that the cloud (norton) knows the wrong identity if I were being logical and put the cloud based identity save under the "ours" account in our little network instead of mine.
