Request for Password Manager improvements
I have been using RoboForm for quite som time now, but when signing up With Norton, I thought I would make use of the Password Manager, as it is included in my Subscription. I have been testing it for a week now, so I am not very experienced yet, but I have been running into a couple of obstacles already, that I want to share, and maybe get Norton to fix in an upgrade...
- I miss the opportunity to categorize the passwords. I am used to find my passwords in a Directory With categories and sub-categories, making it possible to save different credentials for work and private use. It also makes it possible to divide the passwords into Groups and subjects, for easier Access.
- When saving a URL With a port number Attached to the server name (e.g. http://www.contoso.com:8080/blabla/) the port number tends to disappear, so, when I try to Access the site using Password Manager, I get a 404, unless I manually edit the url in the Password Vault.
- Some sites are hashing the password after accepting the logon. Password Manager doesn't see this, hence is storing the hashed password instead of the real one. The only way of fixing this, is to edit the entry in Password Vault.
- The PM is not available to IE and Opera
All of this (and possibly more if I continue to use PM) makes Password Manager unusable as a Product, to me. I may use it as a Reference, but as a password manager, it is unusable as of now. I hope Norton will have a look at this , and improve the PM. For now, I keep on using RoboForm…
