Jun 11, 2010

Norton Internet Security provides the Identity Safe Setup option to create local profile and portable profile. The option disappears after you successfully create local profile a portable profile.

The option disappears in the following cases:
  • If you have not connected an external drive, the option disappears after you create the local profile.
  • If you have connected one or more external drives after you created local profile, the option disappears after you create portable profile on all the external drives.
You can use the Set up Norton Identity Safe window to set a password for the profile that you create and also provide a name for the profile. By default, the Windows User Account name appears as the profile name. You can rename it if necessary.
