Safe Identity local or on the cloud - no choise?

Yesterday changed from NI2012 to  Nis2013.

The local (PC) stored Safe Identity  settings where transferred to NIS2013.

I wanted to reset Safe Identity password in NS2013, but mistakes.

In NIS2013 It is not possible to chose for Local (PC) Safe Identity, only on the cloud.

I do not want my passwords to hang somewhere where I have not full controll.

So I had to remove I2013, re-install  NIS2012, open local Safe Identity and upgrade again to NIS2013.

Why keep it simple if you can complicate?

Hi,

Acorporate decision was made to go cloud only so that's the way we have to live with it. At least for now.

Stay well and surf safe

Hi lekkerweg, 

 

There is a thread in the Product Suggestions Board asking for the return of the local vault where you might want to add your voice:

Hi lekkerweg,

It sounds like you did get your Local Vault back in NIS 2013 which is possible by going bck to NIS 2013 and then reupgrading "over the top" to NIS 2013.  If that is what you did - that is the way to go to get the Local Vault in NIS  2013 (actually known as Version 20).  FWIW, I have also her that the Beta testers are saying that the opiton to do an over the top install of version 21 (2014 product) will also maintan the Local Vault.

One suggestion, Export your ID Safe Data to a safe location in both CSV and Dat format before doing anything else so that you have a copy in case anything happens to cause you to lose your ID Safe log-ins.
