Norton Password Manager - Archive Feature

The Password Manager "Archive" section is a good thought.  However, the "accepted solution" on the thread I just read said passwords that are no longer needed should be deleted.  This wreaks of the old AT&T adage of someone who's been in the basement of the Security field so long without daylight that they've lost touch with the real world and think "vi" is the best text editor ever....

I have logins to web sites I don't need on a regular basis.  Deleting that login doesn't make sense.  I depend on Norton Password Manager heavily, including remembering the URL for sites I haven't visited in several years.  I need to archive those URL's.  If there were a way to delete the password, but save the login to those sites, so that the next time I login I have to create a new password, that would be OK.  But I've never seen a site that lets you keep your account and delete the password / lock the account.

I need to be able to archive the URL's I don't use regularly, rather than having those sites clutter up the logins I use regularly.

Have you thought of going through the old logins you have in your vault and setting up a folder in your browsers bookmarks for old sites? You could then delete the login from the vault.

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

Re: Norton Password Manager - Archive Feature

Not all sites have a "forgot password" reset mechanism.  Best practice, IMHO, is that the Customer be allowed (if perhaps chastised) to archive old logins under the "Archived Logins" section....
