There have been several popular password managers for the iPhone (and for iOS in general). 1Password, for instance, is a very popular cross-platform software. Over the years though, there’s been a large level of complexity in these password managers. I’ve had to shift bases more frequently than ever just because things got complex with password managers.

Norton’s Identity Safe might come across as just another password manager that helps you store passwords securely and make logins easier, but it goes a step ahead in a few subtle aspects.
Computer protection software by Norton doesn’t really need any introduction as they’ve been at the forefront of internet security for a lot many years now. So what exactly makes Norton Identity Safe app – which, by the way, is available for a lot of platforms including iOS and Android primarily – something like a must-have?
I think it boils down to two things: security, simplification.
Norton’s Identity Safe has two clear purposes: to help you store your passwords safely so that you never have to remember a dozen passwords again and to help you log in to your websites easily and securely from within the app. Read more on best iPhone security Apps.
Now there’s nothing new in what the app does. Built-in browsers and secure password managers are a common thing today. But I think you’ll like Norton’s offering because it’s free, does the job perfectly and does not complication things.
Setting up is easy, and it’s easier if you’ve already got a vault account with Norton Identity. Although the app misses import features (as noted by other reviewers), you’ve got to admit that the omission isn’t a big deal. Besides, if there are import or export options, they can be a slight security flaw.
Unlike a lot many other password managers, Norton Identity Safe tells you exactly what makes a password strong. If you follow the same criteria that Norton recommends, most of your passwords are going to be hard to crack – and naturally, hard to remember.
That’s why you use apps like Norton Identity Safe.
An underrated feature is the built-in secure browser with alerts if you’re looking at a less-secure website. The built-in browser is set to mimic Safari, so your experience is almost unchanged. The aim is to make you browse as securely as possible.
The app is a perfect one if you’re looking to store passwords and use them securely.
That’s all for now, folks!
