Password Generator available in Toolbar?

Is Norton's Password Generator accessible from the toolbar? 

I can't seem to find it if it is.

The reason I ask is because a few weeks ago Norton came up with an error which stated that Norton Internet Security had a problem/error which required it to be reinstalled.  I then installed/reinstalled using the link it provided and restarted my Computer.  Then I restarted my browser (can't remember which one it was though...sry).  On the toolbar(????) I saw a link that said password generator and I clicked it and I saw the password generator screen.  I was happy to finally see this option available.  I then hid the toolbar as I usually do.  Later when I reopened the toolbar I couldn't find that option again. :-(

Did I dream all of this?  :-)  Maybe what I saw was not actually part of the Toolbar but some kind of a 'tour' showing a useful feature I could use...I honestly do not know.....

Hi Harvesters,

AFAIK the Password Generator is not accessible from the toolbar.

The Password Generator is located at the following link:

https://identitysafe.norton.com/password-generator

What I have done is created a desktop Icon for the Password Generator so that I can easily get to it.

I do believe there is a suggestion on the Product Suggestion Board in regards to making the generator more readily available.

<Edit>  Here is one such suggestion:  http://community.norton.com/t5/Product-Suggestions/Incorporate-the-Online-Norton-Password-Generator-Into-All/m-p/1120988/highlight/true#M4026

Hi

Thanks for the reply. 

Yes I also have it bookmarked.  But I'm now wondering what that link was that I clicked after I reinstalled.  I'm guessing it must have been some sort of 'tour' showing me that page was available.  I really thought it was part of the tool bar....guess not.

BTW,  I saw a screen shot of a beta version of Identity Safe in another thread showing that the Password Generator was indeed accessible from the main screen.  Do you know if that is only in the stand alone version?

Perhaps you encountered this page while setting up your ID Safe Vault?

https://identitysafe.norton.com/

I am not Beta testing - however there are others who are and should be able to answer if the Password Generator is in fact linked on the new product!

The Norton Password Generator has a link on the new v22 Norton Security and Norton Security with Backup which are now in beta and due for release sometime soon.

From the screenshot it appears that password generation won't be available from the toolbar or within IDsafe in the next version either.

... And clicking that link only opens your default browser to the site linked above.

Since every "NTB supported" web browser has long had "tabbed browsing" capability, it certainly seems that it would be such a "simple thing to do" and "handy thing to have" - a "NPW" button on the NTB (or a link on the "..." drop-down) that opens a new tab pointed at the "NPW" website...

I have Norton Internet Security.  Will it change names to Norton Security with the next release?
