Are you comfortable using Norton or some other program that saves your login info and passwords on all your sites?

Are these programs safe to use? Don't have to worry about ID theft?

  • norton and McAfee are viruses
    there are plenty of free software available which do a better job at protecting your security

    and you can disable the save the logon feature with any system

  • I NEVER allow them to save my info, I always opt to not have them save my info...

    I work with computers for a living and I will not suggest anyone to use Norton, they are not as great as they claim

  • Thanks, Ladies! I wondered if I was being overcautious. I am glad I asked!

  • I have a program that I use to save my passwords (it also generates them), but I wouldn't trust Norton or McAfee. I don't have either of them, I think Norton absolutely sucks and McAfee isn't much better.

    I use Webroot for my virus protection, but I use a different program for saving my passwords.

  • I do not allow it either and my system lets you log in with a finger print not allowing that either.No master logins for me

  • What happens when the password program fails? You're locked out of everything.
