Organizing My Computer Passwords


Well, like everything else in my life, I must organize another thing - my computer passwords. Aren't they such a hassle? Mine are. I'm constantly trying to remember which password goes with which site - since you're technically not supposed to have the same password for each site, AND combine that with how you're "supposed" to make all kinds of crazy dashes, upper case letters, number combos and you are completely forgetting what the password for each site is, right? I've been storing them in my email file but I know that's probably not the most secure place for them, especially credit cards or other online payment sources.


My job is to help motivate you to organize. I want to keep you "in the know" of new products and websites I find that help you do that, too. So, I found a new way to store your passwords without having to remember each and every one of them, but still be super secure! AND....get this - it's FREE!!! Yes, it's free! Pick your jaw up off the floor - I know you're shocked, right?


Norton's Identity Safe is available for both PC and Mac computers. I have a Mac and so it works for me, just great. Here is a little bit about what it does, so you can figure it out, too!


It stores ALL your passwords - and it even finds the ones I've already told "remember me" when I've signed up and then searches out new ones. You can even use this on your phone with an app so you don't have to remember the passwords on there, either!

I forgot my user and password again!!
How many times have I forgotten my username and password? Honestly, too many! How many times do you have to have them email you a new password and start again? Wasting valuable time and energy, right?


It also has several other features when you download the free software and/or app for your phone or computer.


You can save all your passwords, it will fill out your forms online for you automatically {you know, then you don't have to keep typing your address over and over}, store important notes, share with others, it's totally safe, it can be used on many web browsers, plus it works across many of your favorite mobile devices also. It's all very secure.

I found that the software walks you through the process

You must first have an email password, then a separate {and different} "Vault" password. This is the one that you will undoubtedly need to remember!

It gives you step by step instructions so it's easy to know what you're doing

I found this to be so useful. I can imagine that it's going to continue making my life much easier from now on, also. It's pretty easy to navigate and, with the time that I've been using it, seems to do even more than I expected. I like that. And, you can't beat the price! So, go there now and download this free software.
