Recommendation - synchronize Online and Local vaults
I have NIS2012 on 3 Windows 7 machines plus an iPad. I have used Identity Safe since it was called Password Manager. It sure would be a big improvement if Identity Safe would synchronize the contents of the online vault and the 3 Windows local vaults. Or provide an option for the online vault that does NOT require the online vault password frequently, or ever, just like the local vault works. In other words, make the vaults work like the rest of the cloud world. For example, Dropbox keeps a local copy of any file (or files) synchronized across multiple devices and with the cloud copy of the file(s).
I found the iPad implementation of Identity Safe so cumbersome that I stopped using it and I simply use the online vault in Safari to access password, note or card data.
Keeping the online vault and the 3 local vaults synchronized is so difficult and time comsuming that I seldom spend the time necessary to do it. Yes, I know how to do it with vault backups and re-establishing a new online vault. It is a major pain.
