Review: Norton Identity Safe is an exceptional security tool for your iOS device

Manage passwords, protect your device, and manage access to sensitive content on your iOS device with this well-made security app.

Norton Identity Safe is one of the most advanced and easy-to-use password management tools on the App Store to date, enabling you to track, manage, and keep safe your passwords while on the go. With a smartly designed interface, cloud storage of your passwords, and encryption to ensure they all remain safe wherever you go, this is a very useful app, especially for people who travel or use third-party computers frequently.

To use Norton Identity Safe, you'll need multiple passwords. First, you'll need a Norton account, which you may already have if you use Norton Antivirus or any of Symantec's other security products. You must then create a vault and a password for it, this time with even stricter security guidelines. After creating your vault, verifying it, and logging in, you can start adding passwords. There are added security features to shut down your vault after certain periods of time and you can add to or update your vault on a desktop, as well. All of this allows you to use the built-in browser to open login-only sites from your iPhone with ease, automatically loading your passwords into the fields.

Where other password storage tools stumble in terms of organization and security layout, Norton manages to get it all right. We found the process easy to use, intuitive, and designed in such a way that it always worked exactly as intended. If you need a secure password protector, this is the app to download.
