Norton Identity Safe Works For Me {and Android Tablet Giveaway}

As a blogger you are given the chance to review loads and loads of products. As I’ve said before it’s important to me for you *my lovely, super-awesome readers* not to feel like everything is a big commercial here so I only accept things that I can truly get behind and that I feel you would like to know about too. Enter Norton Identity Safe.

Since I began blogging my home computer has become my home office. And things have gotten crazy up in here! Usernames and passwords have reproduced like rabbits! Let’s take a quick look.

Pre-blog:

  • Email
  • Facebook
  • Bank
  • Amazon
  • Netflix (which I always and forever forget when I need it)

Nowadays: {In addition to above}

  • Blog Email
  • Gmail
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • Klout
  • StumbleUpon
  • HootSuite
  • Instagram
  • Google+
  • Foodgawker
  • Tastespotting
  • Tasteologie
  • Dessert Stalking
  • PayPal

Look familiar? Honestly I know I’m missing a few…but those are the regular offenders. I am on the lazy side and I usually stick close to the same password with small variations but even that gets me in trouble sometimes. In the beginning weeks of In Katrina’s Kitchen I used my personal email account. BAD decision. If you are going to start a blog please just take the extra 10 minutes to create a separate email account to handle all of your correspondence from. Trust me. I have since gone in and changed almost every login to use my blog information but there are some platforms that can’t be changed. So invariably I spend 5 minutes trying to figure out if my username is my personal email or name, my blog email or name, and what variation of password is required here (numbers and letters? Must use a symbol? Must use a capital letter?). It’s maddening and I often lock myself out of the site- true story.

Needless to say I have really loved using Norton Identity Safe. It has helped me manage my passwords and even credit card information. It helps you fill out forms and credit card information, and it will tell you if a website looks fraudulent. I personally love that it has an app that you can download for your smartphone or tablet so you can truly shop anywhere you want anytime you want and not have to go digging into your purse for your wallet. Can a sister get an amen?! Once you enter your information it locks it away into an online vault. I kind of really like that word vault, don’t you? Much safer than having a document on your computer entitled “passwords.” Ahem.

So, let’s review: Norton Identity Safe is a password manager! Hooray! I installed it in 5 minutes…all by my pretty little self! Hooray! Available for Mac and PC users! Hooray! It’s FREE for you to download, so go give it a test drive! Hooray!

Speaking of free things- Leave a comment on this post sharing a story about a time you forgot or lost a password and you’ll have a chance to win one of five Android Tablets (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2- 10.1-Inch, Wi-Fi) with Norton Mobile Security and Identity Safe installed!!

    Oh my gosh, I have too many stories about forgetting my password! And, yes, I, too, have been locked out of MANY sites because I've screwed up my password!

    One thing I find myself doing quite often is clicking on "forgot password" and going through the whole stinkin' process of resetting the password, only to remember it when I see the "rules" of the password (must have one capital letter/number/symbol, whatever) So irritating!

    I'm going to check out the Norton site right now. :)

    I was convinced that the best way to keep my bank password safe was to never write it down and just memorize it. Needless to say I would have to call my bank at least once a month to get it reset, hoping that they don't keep track of how many times I've called for that reason. Judging by my latest responses from the bank, however, I think they know haha! Now I developed a better system and haven't called the bank in almost 6 months;)

Then once I figure out which e-mail to enter, the passwords aren't consistent. I have spent over twenty minutes swearing at FoodGawker's login page, no lie.

    We lost the password to our computer several years ago and finally had to call in several favors from a computer-genius-friend. He was able to get into the system and restore it after a couple of days. Always, always write it down in several places! or tattoo it on your leg, whichever is easier. ;)

    I admit I'm one of those people who tends to use the same password for too many different sites–not a good idea I know. My husband was trying to apply for a hunting license just last night and couldn't remember his password, or even his user name or the email account he had used at the site before. We finally gave up and started a brand new account. This Norton Identity Safe is something we both need to install–pronto!

    knittykittybelle — July 11, 2012 at 1:40 am

    What really throws me off is when they have the asinine rules like must start with a capital letter, a number or need a random something or another mixed in-between. There are so many times I sit there and plug in my usual ones and come up short. Click the reset password and and see the rules and go "how in the world can I remember that?"

    My college made you change your password every 90 days and you couldn't repeat the same password in the last 180, I was always forgetting what it was. Ended up having to just relate them to the season or common class type.

    I will have to give that Norton product a bit of a chance, but most of the Norton products I have used caused some massive problems for my computers, but this has been many years back.

    We have a FSA through my husband's work. They require us to change the password every so often, So I can't use my standby ones. So I will get an email to verify a claim every once in a while and get frustrated because i have to remember the PW and if I can't in 3 tries it locks me out til later. If I use the lost pw link then i have to wait for the email to reset and then come up with another pw to remember. I have gotten better and keep it in a little notebook, but sometimes that walks away with someone and have to look for that.

    It would probably be easier to tell you how many times I DIDN'T forget my password for something. I usually use a similar one for most things, but the rules of each place make it difficult to remember. Capital letter? Number? Character? Six digits? Eight? It makes me crazy.

    I've had some trouble in the past with trying to remember passwords to websites that I had signed up to, unless I had wrote them down right away or made it something easy to remember if I visited them on a regular basis. This prize should come in very handy so I don't have to worry about remembering passwords ever again.

    I always try to change my passwords on the same day to the same thing. I have what seems to be about fifty of them to change between home and work – well, one of them I didn't change, and I got locked out of my computer at work – I had to call my IT department, which referred me to Washington, DC where our headquarters is becuase they thought someone was trying to hack my computer at work! YIKES!

    Forgetting passwords can be really annoying. I presently use Roboform and try to periodically back up my passes, but this setup from Norton seems to be pretty useful also. Great giveaway.

    I always forget my passwords–my email is filled with "send password" and "reset password" requests. My worst experience was when I was trying to buy a pair of shoes that were on sale. By the time I got my password email, they were sold out in my size! Very upsetting!

    This isn't my story, but I was just talking to my mom about it last night. My grandfather passed away a month ago, and since then my grandmother has locked herself out of her online bank account no less than 10 times (he used to pay the bills and now she has to do it). Each time she locks herself out, she has to call the bank helpline to unlock her, and it takes them an hour to walk her through resetting it. It's crazy.

    I rarely forget my password, but I do often forget the security question answers because I do not want them to be “easy”. The biggest mistake people make is making their password security questions answers similar to stuff they post online social networking sites.

    Nadine Larsen — July 28, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    I always used Roboform (a password/form filler) so when I lost my computer and got a new one a few years back. When I went to enter all my usual sites, I found that there were a couple that I had not saved the passwords for and on top of that, they were older sites I had visited for years and used a totally different email address for as well, I was never able to get back into one of those sites. Even with reregistering I could not get in because all the rest of my info was the same so it insisted I was already registered.

    There are some passwords that I forget on a regular basis. You know, the ones that require a capital letter, number, 10 or more characters and a symbol. Who can be expected to remember those? So I get locked out regularly.

    Most passwords I can eventually get by trial and error, but heaven forbid if I forget my bank or AT&T. They lock you out and you have to go get on the phone with them and sit through the countdown waiting for someone to become available to take your call. They always act like you are a total idiot!

    I too have forgotten passwords, mostly due to the fact that you have to have so many. As you said, one for everything stinking thing you do. BUT, my worst one ever has to be the one I forgot/lost, whatever…. for my second favorite thing, next to food, and that was for my music. Yes, I lost my password for all my music and to this date it still hasn’t been resolved.

    See, I had had my account so long that the email address it was signed up through didn’t even exist anymore because the company had been sold. However, my account was still linked to it. I called, email, begged, cried, threw a fit and anything else I could think of to try and get my password, but see the problem was that because the IP did not exist anymore there was no way I could prove who I was to my “music” provider so they would not release my password. I have since had to re-purchase ALL my music/videos, and I am talking YEARS worth bunches of $$ worth!! What a bummer, in more ways than one. I will never forget one again and I am going to try the Norton safe right now. Thank you so much for posting the download!! Happy Holidays :)
