Norton Wants To Help You Remember Your Password

Norton's new Identity Safe Service can make managing passwords easier.

If you're anything like me, you're usually quick to reach for the "Forgot Password" link on most webpages that you don't visit that often. Sure you could have your browser remember your passwords for everything, but that probably isn't the best approach when it comes to handling your login information.

Today, Norton launched a public beta of its new Norton Identity Safe service for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. Similar to 1Pass, Norton Identity Safe will store your website login info into an encrypted file that is protected by a single master password. That way, instead of having to remember several different passwords and usernames, you only need to remember the one.

Any password or usernames entered on the desktop client will be automatically synced to the apps and vice versa. And, for an even safer browsing experience, Norton Identity Safe comes with Norton Safe Search built-in. Safe Search uses Norton's database of websites to tell you if site is trustworthy or not.

The service is free, and worth checking out. For more information be sure to check out Norton's Identity Safe beta page.
