Why do I need to log onto Norton in order to log onto ID Safe?
I was doing just fine with my local ID Safe when I saw that I was having an impending disc failure. I was able to take a quick image, bought a new disc and put on the image. Everything but Norton worked just fine. I had to reinstall because it got stuck in a loop about my account being not valid check on line it is valid, then no it's not. I had a back up for my safe, but I was only allowed to do an online version. So I was being forced out of my desktop version to the cloud. That's OK, but I find that my desktop version that I restored ( and from which the cloud version got its set of PWs) does not work independently. I can pop the little icon to get the cloud version going, but I am finding that at times I need to log into Norton itself in order to log into my safe. I thought that a major reason for the safe was to have a single password that enables strong passwords automatically. But just to use the safe, I need to log onto Norton, which requires a long password, and when you're in the middle of something it's a bother.
Can anybody come up with a way around this requirement? And how can I get my local safe to work?
